— the company behind such products as Time Track and Seagull Video Player — has released three open source AppleScripts for iTunes. These scripts — which are free — were created to help users quickly clean up the ID3 tags of songs in their iTunes music library. The scripts are:
Capitalize Words In Tags, which capitalizes the first letter of each word in the song name, artist, and album tags. It also makes all other characters in the tags lowercase. For example the song “head like a hole” by “nine inch nails” from the album “pretty hate machine” would become “Head Like A Hole” by “Nine Inch Nails” from the album “Pretty Hate Machine”.
Extract Artist From Song Name, which removes the artist name from the song name tag and puts it into the artist tag. It also removes leading and trailing spaces from both the song name tag and the artist tag. For example, “Dixie Chicks — Landslide” would become “Landslide” by “Dixie Chicks.”
Remove Track Number from Song Name, which removes the track number from the song name along with spaces and dashes. For example “10 – Get In Line” would become simply “Get In Line.”

The AppleScripts require iTunes 2.0.3 or later and can be used on both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9. Since they’re open source, you can read the source code, modify it, and use it to create new scripts.
