Default ISRC Codes <> Metadata

I am curious to know how to enter:

(1) ISRC Codes into individual songs

and

(2) Metadata (song title, artist, etc)


Is it possible to enter these in Reaper? If so, how?

Thanks

ps: i did a search on the forum but did not find any how-to on these

Some info here:

Google "reaper isrc codes" for additional forum threads.

I use Sony CD Architect to add ISRC codes to the Orange Book production master. I haven't looked into doing this with REAPER.

I'm sure some power users will have a few scripts but REAPER is not set up to do this natively, and from what I have heard and looked into, even the scripts are not that user friendly.

The question is how and where you'd like to embed the ISRC codes? A CD or DDP image? WAV files? mp3? other?

Three common ways to embed ISRC codes:

CD-Text for CD burning/DDP export
ISRC in the ID3v2 metadata
ISRC in the AXML chunk per EBU specs

All three are different processes. Just because you embed an ISRC in a WAV file doesn't mean it will travel to the end format, or if you burn a CD etc.

As far as Metadata (song title, artist, etc), that is also done with ID3v1 and v2 metadata, CD-Text, as well as other metadata format options. It can be complex.

I think it's best to use mastering specific software to do this such as WaveLab, HOFA CD Burn & DDP, Sonoris DDP Creator, and some others.

With WaveLab for example, you enter in all the info one time such as artist name, album title, song titles, ISRC codes, etc. and with the right metadata preset, whether you render DDP, WAV, mp3 etc, all applicable metadata is pushed to those fields and you're done.

With REAPER, you'll probably need to find some existing scripts, and I think you might find it to be a headache and you still may need to use another app to either finish the job or verify the work.

If all you want to do is add ISRC codes to WAV files, Sonoris makes a free tool:

If you want to do more involved metadata work, REAPER might not be your best bet. It all depends how often you need to do this, and how quickly you want to be able to do it.

For a one time thing, maybe REAPER can work. For repetitive daily work, I'd look elsewhere.
