OK, I don’t plug software very often but this is a must. If you don’t use MP3 files, then skip this ‘cos it won’t make much sense.
I have a few MP3 files (OK around 4000) and I’m a bit of a stickler for conformity. All the files are named the same way (Artist – Track.mp3), and have complete ID2 & ID3 tags (Artist – Title and Album at least). Now on the rare occasion that I download a track from the web, frequently it’s not named the ‘right’ way, or has incomplete or erroneous tags. For a long time I edited tracks by hand, anything to get things ‘proper’. OK I’m obsessed. It’s an affliction, what ya gonna do…
Finally I have a cure for my itch: Tag&Rename – ID3v2 tag editor, mp3 organizer, mp3 tag editor, mp3 renamer, mp3 playlist creator. A snip at £16, and despite the quirky interface it is a god send. A few selections, then one click of a button and you can rename mulitple files, edit tags, create playlists… bliss!
If you have a ‘few’ MP3s on your system I suggest you check it out. You can evaluate it for 30 days. Go on, try it!
