Before Apple crippled iTunes, I made quite a lot of use of the scripting capabilities. One that I miss in particular is "Append to Comments." Select a number of tracks, "Append to Comments" enter some text and boom! Would love to see this incorporated. (Or perhaps there is a way to get my iTunes sripts running over here in Beatunes?)

    Frankly, Music.app has the same AppleScript interface as iTunes. You shouldn’t need to change much to get your scripts to run with it.
    Have you tried?

    I hadn't, because I didn't know that music would run those scripts. So thanks for setting me straight on that. I still think that this capability in particular would be a ncie one to incorporate into BeaTunes so less application switching is necessary, but doing it in Music is better than nothing.

    You should just have to tell Music instead of iTunes in your AppleScripts. Some some change will still be required.

    That said, it looks like Doug updated the script for Music: https://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=mxappendtoselectedtag
