Meaningful file names and a good folder hierarchy is no longer enough to have your music collection well-organized. The more information you add to your albums and tracks, the easier it will be to find that elusive song stuck in your head. mp3Tag Pro provides you with all the tools you need to add tags, cover art, and even lyrics to your favorite music, and to keep it neatly organized and ready to go.

Tags are becoming more and more important, not only to help you organize your ever-growing music collection, but also to make the most of each track when playing it back on your car, your mobile phone, or any other device capable of sorting and displaying tags. Players can now organize your music collection by artist, genre, year, album, etc., but they need to have access to this information in order to do so. Hence the importance of spending some time tagging your music.

This professional tool not only allows you to edit or complete existing tags, but it is capable of tagging your tracks entirely on its own by importing the data from existing databases, such as FreeDB, Discogs, MusicBrainz, or even Amazon. These tags cover both ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags, which means that cover art and even lyrics can now travel with your favorite tracks too. Tags can also be extracted from each track’s file name – by defining the right algorithms and provided that the file names follow some sort of pattern, it is easy for this program to extract tags like track number, artist name, song title, or the publication year from the current file name (when present). Likewise, you can use already-existing tags from your audio files to create new names for them or to rename your entire collection according to your preferences.

Despite the program’s name, mp3Tag Pro can tag not only MP3 audio files, but nearly any file that supports tagging, such as WAV, FLAC, M4A, Ogg, APE, AAC, WV, and MP4 files. You are provided with extensive information about each track, including the file size, its duration, frequency rate, and even its bit rate (now also for FLAC files). Few music-tagging tools come with the plethora of features and options that mp3Tag Pro provides – its clear and intuitive interface (despite the amount of data displayed) makes it a most suitable tool for all types of users.
