Normal topicm4a files not showing Key/INITIALKEY metadata

Hi,

Similar to the issue Powder had with Flac files...
https://2manyrobots.com/forum/?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=136#postid-539... Yate 5.1.3.2 is not showing the musical key tag.

I've processed my files with beaTunes, Mixed In Key and Traktor. They all show the Key tag is there, but it's not visible in Yate.

Unlike Flac/Ogg, I can't see a way of changing the mapping for m4a to make it show in this column. Is there something else I can do, or could this be fixed please?

Thanks!

Yate Version 5.1.3.2 (8679.8644)
OS X 10.13.6

Here you can see the empty Initial Key column in Yate. The field is populated for all other filetypes...

Traktor has a weird, proprietary way of showing the key tag(s). "Key" being from its own internal analysis (which I don't use) and "Key text" which I believe is the TKEY / INITIAL KEY / INITIALKEY tag used by other software, and is the one I need to see in Yate.

These are my duplicated m4A test files in Traktor, before and after MiK analysis...

This is another tag issue where more than one tag is used by various taggers. Yate uses the com.apple.itunes/KEY tag while Mixed in Key is writing com.apple.itunes/initialkey.

You actually have the tag now. It will be on the UD Text panel as opposed to being stored in the Initial Key field. You can view the data as a column via Preferences-File List-UD Text Column Mappings. Simply enter initialkey as the mapping. Then add the column UD Text Mapping # (initialkey) in the main window. This process will get you going the fastest.

In the upcoming v6 I will add an option to read both and write one as with the Conductor field.
