Alternative opinionated GUI for FADGI BWFMetaEdit

audio, metadata, mp3, riff-wave
pip install autoBWF==3.6


The purpose of autoBWF is to provide an alternative GUI for embedding internal metadata in WAVE audio files using the Broadcast Wave standard, FADGI BWFMetaEdit, and XMP.

Unlike the existing BWFMetaEdit GUI, autoBWF is extremely opinionated and will automatically generate metadata content based on file naming conventions, system metadata, and pre-configured repository defaults. In addition, it can copy metadata fields from a template file to avoid having to enter the same information multiple times for several master or derivative files of the same physical instantiation.

Also included are two command line programs to simplify the creation of derivative files. is a wrapper for the lame MP3 encoder that automatically transfers Wave internal metadata to appropriate ID3v2 tags. autosplice is a wrapper that generates sox commands from an EDL-like text file to splice audio from multiple input files, while also providing means to do basic fade in/out and audio level compression.
