ID-3 tags in .wav files

Postby Perfect Record » Fri Jun 01, 2018 22:39

A client has requested hi-rez files in addition to a DDP for the record I'm working on this week.

The tricky part is that they have requested CD-Text and performer info to be embedded into each track/file of the hi-rez files.. I cannot find a tool or standard for CDT & ISRC info on a wav file.

I don't even find appropriate fields in BWAV info header.

Anyone else had this request.

MP3Tag supports WAV. While it does not list BWF as a supported format, has the client specifically requested broadcast WAV files vs standard WAV files? I only use BWF when file the timestamp might be needed. Otherwise standard WAV is, well, the standard.
