Universal audio tag editor

runs on Windows

If you are a fan of iTunes, or have so many MP3s that you're seriously looking at getting a bigger hard drive, then you know about "tags". These little bits of meta data associated with your audio files are what makes it easy to build playlists by genre, or to figure out who composed which songs on that new album. You can get in there and edit this stuff through iTunes and other audio players, but that's not what they were built for—it's kind of like how you could keep the books for your business on a spreadsheet, but might be better served by using a dedicated finance program.

Mp3tag is a tool designed specifically to tweak the tags in your audio files. Make your adjustments one-at-a-time, or go into full batch mode, editing tags for multiple files at once. You can enter data directly, or let the tool query databases from Amazon, MusicBrainz, and others, so you can get all the info you really need. You can also use it to create playlists, add cover art, and more.

A Windows app, Mp3tag is a free download. The current version runs under WinXP and later, but they do still have down-rev versions available that go back as far as Windows 95.
