    Default MP3 Tagging and Organization Software

    Just curious what everyone uses (windows based) for MP3 tagging and organization?

    I am using MP3 Tag, but am looking for alternatives.

    Thank you

    foobar2000. The only reason I'm using it over mp3tag is support of aiff.

    mp3tag's alright.

    itunes is great for tagging, but if you're on windows i wouldn't bother with it tbh

    I don't use iTunes at all these days. Fed up of all the bugs and waiting half an hour whilst it uses all four of my cores at full power for the simplest of tasks!

    jriver media center

    I think the free version jriver media jukebox is as flexible for tagging and organising a library.

    It does everything Filthy Dave mentioned in one program.

    I use MP3Tag. Once you know how to use actions with it, it makes tagging a piece of piss.

    I have 1 action set up that does this when it's selected: -

    Changes the case so each word starts with a capital letter and the rest of the letters are lower case
    Replaces "feat", "feat.", "Feat", or "Feat." with "ft."
    Copies the artist name to the artist tag field from the folder name
    Copies the album title to the title tag field from the folder name
    Copies the artist tag field to the album artist field
    Replaces '' (2 apostrophes) with " (proper quotation mark) in tag fields
    Tags the genre with "Hip-Hop"
    Tags the year with "2013"
    Embeds the folder.jpg file in the album folder into each music file

    That basically leaves me with very little to do other than change the year and genre if necessary. I chose "Hip-Hop" and "2013" as the defaults as they're the ones I find I use the most.

    If the album is by various artists, I have another action set up to handle that which does all of the above, but it places "Various Artists" in the album artists field, and the relevent artists' names in each track's artist field.
