Nowadays, the amount of music we have in our equipment is large, it is no longer possible to manage with the traditional system of filenames and directories. The most convenient way is to use the concept of libraries that handle the big market music players: iTunes, Amarok, Windows Media Player, Google Music, … etc.

The labels of music files contains all the information on artist, album, genre, title, lyrics … etc, associated with a song. This information is used by music players to manage their libraries. A good labeling enhances the user experience.

Metatogger ~ Windows Audio Tag Management


Metatogger is a tag editor for audio files. These tags or metadata are helping to exploit with more efficiency audio files data. Most of the files are not coming along with metadata, while others are having wrong, useless or inconsistent data. Sometimes, even file name doesn’t reflect the true content of the file. It is then difficult to identify the piece without playing it. This is where Metatogger makes it great.

Metatogger allows correcting or completing audio files tags. It comes with features that allow:

  • manual tags editing or with C# scripts;
  • retrieve tags from file name or paths;
  • rename files with tags content;
  • look after duplicate audio files;
  • organize files according to tags (copy, move, symbolic link);
  • retrieve tags in a local database of 1.5 million public records;
  • retrieve covers and lyrics from Internet;
  • identify files using acoustic fingerprinting technology;
  • easily clean unwanted tags.
  • Metatogger works with Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, M4A (AAC and ALAC) and WMA.

puddletag ~ GNU \ Linux Audio Tag Editor


puddletag is an audio tag editor (primarily created) for GNU/Linux similar to the Windows program, Mp3tag. Unlike most taggers for GNU/Linux, it uses a spreadsheet-like layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable.

The usual tag editor features are supported like extracting tag information from filenames, renaming files based on their tags by using patterns and basic tag editing.

Then there are Functions, which can do things like replace text, trim it, do case conversions, etc. Actions can automate repetitive tasks. Doing web lookups using Amazon (including cover art), Discogs (does cover art too!), FreeDB and MusicBrainz is also supported. There’s quite a bit more, but I’ve reached my comma quota.

Supported formats: ID3v1, ID3v2 (mp3), MP4 (mp4, m4a, etc.), Vorbis Comments (ogg, flac), Musepack (mpc), Monkey’s Audio (.ape) and WavPack (wv).
