    Default Id3 tag editors?

    So since we all run our songs off out computers we all have had problems with our Id3 tags.


    What program do you use to fix them up?
    Personally i use Mp3tag (downloaded off of cnet) its the best iv seen so far.


    I need to find a program that capatilizes and takes away underscores if any one know of one.

    Seconded on mp3tag. I've tried several others and I might as well be learning a programming language.

    I've used Tag&Rename as well as tagscanner. Both have worked well for me.

    what do u put in your id3 tags?

    Currently, I just run all my tracks through mixmeister and it analyzes them and puts the key in automatically. What other things do you guys put in manually?

    I use mp3tag to rename the files the way I want them to read: "artist - track (remix) [label].mp3" I use Traktor to fill in genre, comments, and lyrics to make it easier to sort and find tracks, as I don't keep music files in separate folders.

    To be honest, I don't understand why anyone needs to identify the key of a track, since you can shift it to anything you want to blend with the currently playing track, and you don't need to know what that track's key is so long as you shift until you blend or harmonize with it.

    You couldn't just pitch a track up [too much] if it had vocals though, it'd sound weird, so it's good to know the key of a track beforehand, so that you know which tracks are workable and which aren't.

    Currently I use foobar and Traktors editor to change the tags. I'm in the process of gutting my MP3 collection. Need to lose all those poor sounding rips and low bit-rate tracks. Building my collection with FLAC now. Hooray for foobar!

    Oh, good point! You can see how often I stress vocal tracks.

    anyone know of anything similar and sleek as foobar for mac? i'd really like the discogs addon too.... that sounds wicked, because i spend a lot of time synching my tracks to discogs...
