mp3Tag Pro is a highly flexible and versatile utility that offers you a plethora of features and functions to help you add, edit, and export music tags. Despite its name, the program supports many other file formats apart from MP3, such as Ogg, WMA, FLAC, M4A, MP4, AAC, and APE. Besides, it comes with a comprehensive file renamer for you to organize your entire music collection quickly and efficiently.

Tag editing can be done either manually or by importing the required tags from different sources. When you select an audio file, mp3Tag Pro will show you whatever tags are already present in the file. In the program’s main interface you can add, delete, or modify any of the provided tags manually, or you can click on the “Generate tags” button to move to the program’s automated tagging processes. To bulk-generate new tags or to replace existing ones, you can either make use of the information already stored in file and folder names, or import the necessary tags from existing music databases, such as Discogs, MusicBrainz, FreeDB, or even Amazon. Besides, the program offers you an extensive list of options for you to customize your tags and automate the tagging process to the smallest detail.

File renaming is also a flexible and simple process – you can select any combination of tags to create templates that the program will then use to rename your music collection. As a bonus, the program offers you the possibility of adding lyrics to your music files. These can be imported from a text file or typed in directly using the panel provided in the program’s main window.

mp3Tag Pro is a serious option for anyone needing to tag and organize their music collection in an easy and rewarding way. A more intuitive design of its interface, however, would help novice and inexperienced users to feel more confident about it.
