Greetings,

It appears like the Metadata we can currently edit for Album & Tracks in project mode are the ID3 ID3v1 unless i'm wrong, which aren't retained within .wav format.

It would be really awesome, useful and time-saving in my opinion to be able to access a Metadatas Editor window for Advanced Metadatas editing, offering to edit :
RIFF / BWF / CART and XML Chunks (IXML, AXML...) in addition to the ID3 (v1, v2, Lyrics, Artwork)

Wavelab is the only mastering DAW atm, in my knowledge that offers a complete metadata edition suite with all of those. 
But you need the pro version to support the XML chunks. But I of course prefer the workflow within the S1 project page, would be awesome to not have to use a third party program such as BWF MetaEdit after Studio One project mode export, just because data are missing from the file. I would love be able to do this directly in S1 and spare so much time ! :)

Along automations in project mode, this -full metadata support- would bring S1 to its full potential regarding mastering and in my opinion would put it above other mastering DAWs!

Thanks a lot for your consideration and hard work,

Elliott S.

I agree, completely.  I am "all in" with S1 and keep 100% of my work flow within it.  Would love to see this addition.
