sndfile-metadata-set sets bext and string metadata in an audio file if the format supports it. If the file does not contain a BEXT chunk to be modified, the second synopsis must be used, where another output file capable of storing the metadata is created. This file is overwritten if it already exists. The following options take an argument specifying the metadata:

--bext-description

--bext-originator
originator
--bext-orig-ref
originator reference
--bext-umid

The following options take no argument:

Set the BEXT time and date to current.
--bext-auto-time
Set the BEXT time to current.
--bext-auto-date
