I went through my whole library and didn’t get that much success on finding lyrics, interesting in some cases that I actually got lyrics in German. It does seem as well as Lyric search has to find an exact match for example ’song title’ and ’song title (remaster)’ will result the first getting a hit and the other not. Feels like it needs a fair bit of improvement.
I am only noticing this now because I have actually gone through a complete sort of 20k plus songs, so it’s actually a learning experience as well.
There are multiple other things I do to get my import songs ready and for use when imported into Apple Music Library that it quite laborious if it could be done inside beaTunes as I have to launch separate tools.
I am also curious to understand the tag gain feature, currently I use “iVolume” to normalise the volumes as it doesn’t overwrite any tags but uses the Apple iNORM value. It seems BeaTunes has a similar feature, and I am wondering how it works as I currently have iVolume set with default setting and a +5.5 gain. Am I right in my reading that beaTunes can provide the same function? Not clear how similar adjustments can be made to match iVolume settings
I use Tag Editor to set the Release Date as although Music let’s to see this value it doesn’t let you write to it, but when you purchase Apple Music it does. I have discovered it’s actually used by Music, as they want you to purchase from them, it also means you can adjust track years to match actual dates for items like compilations which is extremely useful when you want music in real date order rather than compilation date.
beaTunes also does not change the audio content of your files. Instead it sets two different kinds of tags: the proprietary iTunNORM tag that iTunes/Music-SoundCheck uses and the open ReplayGain tag that may or may not be honored by your music player.

Not knowing iVolume all that well, I have not idea.
beaTunes implements several different standards you can choose from.
I am going to be upgrading my MacBook Pro to an M1 model shortly, my assumption is that this is supported for the current version of beatunes, is that correct?
My understanding is that beatunes maintains a database rather than embedding items into song files. If so, do I need to migrate the current beatunes database or can these tags be embedded I have mainly MP4a and MP3 files.
