mp3Tag - Keep your Music Collection sorted easily!

Recommended Posts

Found this program extremely helpful over the last few days as I re-sort through my music collection to ensure I've got all the tags correctly done and I've sorted out my conventions for how I'm going to move forward. This program has made it more efficient, I'm able to pull tag information directly from the filename if it's available, and then I can batch rename all the songs to Artist - Title (how I like) once that's done. It also gave me an explorer based view of all my tracks meta data so I could easily see which tracks were helpless in my hoarding process and had to be removed (couldn't identify any of the song quickly enough from either existing tags or filename).

Bit of a learning curve in how to perform all the functions, I haven't delved too deeply yet but will be looking at using some of the utility down the track.

This will be a program I keep in my aresnal for music enthusiasm.

3,000 tunes easily done and sorted. Manually created the artist folders and moved files around as I found this quicker and easier with my knowledge, but did the tagging and renaming through MP3tag - made shit super quick compared to doing each individual file. 

Behold all it's glory!

Looking at this turns my stomach haha when I think I've stayed on top of mine I always end up redoing it and it sucks wang. I use to create playlists in iTunes and bridge it across to Recordbox or Traktor / Serato. It made my life much, much easier than having them in folders

This. iTunes keeps the folder structure in check based on the metadata. Tech is trends are moving toward less caring about folders, more about metadata, as it’s more efficient. Get on board, or be left in the dust
