    Not specifically Logic, but batch conversion...
    Hi folks. I'm trying to add text to a pile of sound fx files I've created. I'm part way through a game project and it was decided that we need a better way to keep track of the hundreds of files. I'd rather not type the text into each WAV and MP3 version, but I don't know a way of doing this task. Any ideas?

    You could look at something like audiofinder: [url]http://www.icedaudio.com/[/url]. This allows you to add metatags to your audio and you can do it in batches. So you don't have to work with a single file at a time. What text do you want to add to the audio files?

    I'm trying to add game chapters and scenes - C1S1, C1S2, etc. Some scenes have a couple dozen sounds, others have many more. A friend also recommended Automator, which I believe is part of OSX, but I've never used it.

    Yes, Automator is a part of OSX. It is in the Applications folder. Here you can automate different functions within OSX. You could use the 'rename finder items' funtion to rename your files.
