In the Macintosh version of the CLI, what exactly i the syntax if I have an mp3 file on my desktop and want to change the track title from MyRecording.mp3 to MyRecordingHour1.mp3? I havent managed to get it right yet! Thanks!

The basic syntax is (assuming id3edcmd is in /usr/local/bin):
Code:
1
id3edcmd -ti "a title" /Users/WayOutWest/Desktop/MyRecording.mp3

Note that the full path is required.

If you need to keep the original, just copy the track before editing it e.g.:
Code:
1
cp /Users/WayOutWest/MyRecording.mp3 /Users/WayOutWest/Desktop/MyRecording1.mp3

Or add the option -trash to trash the original before updating.
