    Default Genre Tagging Shortcuts

    Is there any way that I can tag my songs with shortcuts for ex:

    If I press 1 while the track is playing it will tag: Tribal House

    2 - Tech House
    3 - D&B

    (doesn't necessarily have to be that exact key) but is there anyway i can do such a thing??

    okay I got this thing to work: by the way its for Itunes

    First I made scripts that would change the song selected to the genre you type (made about 9 scripts)

    then in system preferences I made shortcuts for the scripts in Itunes to run hence the quick edit

    now i just click command+1 turns genre to house
    command+2 turns genre to tech house
    and so on....

    and it works flawlessly

    open up applescript editor the script is:

    tell application "iTunes"
    set current track's genre to "House"
    end tell


    the word in the "quotes" is what you would switch to what you want...

    Next you open up sytem preferences > Click keyboard > Click Application Shortcuts > click the + sign >select itunes > write down the exact scripts name and the shortcut you want

    for ex: i named my script Genre - House.... so you would write Genre - House and my keyboard shortcut for that is command+1

    Santos this is very nice indeed.

    Got the Script working fine if i run it in Applescript but my shortcut does not work.

    Done exactly as you describe. Is there something i need to do to get the script commands working in iTunes. The script logo doesnt show in itunes?

    If you dont see the scripts you want to do this:

    In Finder, go to your Home/Library/iTunes folder.
    In this folder look for a folder named "Scripts", and if it does not exist create it.
    By copying Applescript scripts inside this folder you make scripts available in iTunes Script menu.

    Any other questions let me know
