Import in iTunes

It’s quite easy to add tracks to iTunes Library: drag them on iTunes window, or double-click if the tracks are already associated to iTunes.
But… what if we want to re-encode tracks, i.e. form an hig bitrate mp3 to a 128 AAC? Then we should import, convert, find out the original, delete it and its file, find out the copy…

Here it is the workflow: selected track files in Finder are directly encoded in iTunes accordin to current iTunes encoding preferences for import.
When conversion is over the user is prompted for changhe/set the artist and/or the album name (for all the tracks).
