Audio file info on Mac

Audio file info on Mac

Been on Mac for some time now and most is better to me than PC but one little thing is making me crazy..

With windows you can right click and get info on an audio file.. such as sample rate and wordlength.

How do you do that on a Mac?

Sure, I can import the file into some program and check there but I want to be able to see this before I import a file into a program.

Someone?

Go into apple menu > system preferences and then click on preferences for your mouse, you can then turn on right click. You can also use control + click.

Audio file info

Matti just told me about a free app called Wave Agent 1.15 for the Mac. Shows all metadata and info can be edited. Check it out

It's not about the command but about what info Mac OSX is showing when doing that.

I want to easily click on a icon on the desktop and see if it's a 16 bit or 24 bit file... or if it's a 44.1kS/s file or 96kS/s file.

Click on the file, then use apple symbol + I for get info.

You can also select Get Info from the File drop menu on the Finder.

Don't know if it will tell you what the sample rate is, though.
