Software Import Tagging showing up in Maschine +
I Previously used Maschine Software & MK3 to Import and Tag USER Loops, One-Shots, and Sample Packs. I've noticed that if I add them to the SD card on the new Maschine + I have just purchased they automatically have all the previous Tags that were made in the software.
I proved this by intentionally adding a typo to an import session and sure enough, it was there when I added the pack to the SD Card.
My Question is : how does the Maschine + know this? Is it syncing with the Computer over Wifi or going back through NI's Servers or something else?
Its pretty great BTW, would just like to know how so I can invoke it to update itself after each tagging System import or update.

No, there's no fancy WIFI sync, you cannot invoke anything... Tags are simply saved inside the WAV files, metadata.
I shared more details about how it works here if you're interested in the nerdy stuff:
Perfect so I can just Import libraries in Maschine software then move them to an SD card afterward and they'll contain the Meta information directly inside the files.
I'll have a read of the link now thanks @D-One0
Ahh so it saves the tags in the WAV header. So effectively tagging presets is the same workflow as with samples; you do it once and they are preserved along with the patch data. This is great!0
Yes, it’s quite effective, especially when working on different systems. And that’s one of the reasons why I prefer the tag browser over a file system browser.
However, AFAIR one thing is different between WAVs and Presets: Favorite markers are saved in the WAV files, while they are not saved to preset files.0
Regrettably there is no standard how to handle tags in WAV files. Every manufacturer or sound designer can do what they want.0
