    Default help with a decent id3 tag re-writer

    guys i need some help, all my id3 tags got screwed somehow by SSL, and now i need to rewrite about 60 gigs worth of tags.... any ideas on a decent tag writer that can do the bulk of the job for me?

    depends on the format of your files, but I've like foobar so far. Has some great command line options that might be able to automatically deduce your tags from folders, filenames, etc as well as a better conversion option for aiff than switch. I believe it can also attempt to find metadata from online databases. mp3tag is another popular option, although it's inability to support aiff is why I chose foobar.

    will it do bulk rewrites by accessing the net and rewriting for me?

    Depends what you want it to re-write, and what information you already have.

    If you have artist and title information (maybe in the filename), then yes, it can look at online databases and return corresponding info.

    But it won't magically "listen" to your tracks and tell you the artist, title, tempo, key, year, artwork, etc...

    If you ever find free software that WILL listen to your tracks and do it all for you I'd like to know about it...

    I'm actually really surprised that someone hasn't already developed something like this. With Shazam being able to listen to songs and tell you exactly what they are, and then an mp3tag type program to write the tags.
