@Bodysoulspirit, the iTunes music library is in a special (Apple-specific) XML format called a property list

Thanks for the info about that !

Possibly we could enable the Make Tree from XML node to detect if the XML is a property list, and if so, turn the keys into element names and the values into content.

Ok so either like that or as a specific Make Tree from Apple Property Lists node perhaps ? Would perhaps keep the regular node faster if less code ?

Well ok if this is so specific to Apple I could imagine a new feature request though if it is more work !

Anyone else interested in using the iTunes file or other property lists in Vuo ?

So you mean all other .plist OSX files would work as well ?

Somehow related interest from @vascoarmartins : Read iTunes playlists Feature Request

You can actually do this with Calculate List, which has functions for perlin and simplex noise (and random numbers). Example attached.

Coool gonna check that out, thanks !

I'm having a level beginner question about XML trees. I'm trying to get the Artist Name, Song Title and File Location for the iTunes songs from the iTunes Library XML.

I'm able to somehow locate the subtree of a song, but then I can't find how to locate the Name or Title because they all start with subtree "Key" as name, then have "Name" or 'Title" as content, but the title or name itself is yet another subtree with name "String", all the same again on the same line.

Should I be using Split Text from here on ? Can't I do this because the way the XML is written or because of the node not considering the same line as a subcontent ? Thanks

Joining the composition, it assumes your iTunes Library is in -/Music/
