    Wav File and CSV metadata merging

    I am getting WAV music files from a stock music site and they include a separate metadata CSV files along with their music. Is there an easy way to merge this info into Avid so all of this info shows up in my bin? There is an MP3 option for downloading and I'm using Avid 6.5.4

    If the metadata is in the ID3 tags as well, they can link to the MP3 files with the mus.iD AMA plug-in.

    Re: Wav File and CSV metadata merging

    Basically you convert the csv to an avid log exchange document (Ale) and then (via the import dialogue) merge that document with existing items in the bin.

    An Ale is basically a csv with a header table describing what the csv columns are.

    note that the formatting of the document has to be precise, you need to be able to see "invisible characters" in your txt editor to get this right. I think originally I exported a tab formatted document from an avid bin to get this right.
