MusicBrainz Picard lets you label and tag your music with the correct ID3 tags of artists, albums, etc. quickly and easily.

Picard is the next generation MusicBrainz tagging application. This new tagging concept is album oriented, as opposed to track/file oriented like the ClassicTagger was. Picard is written in Python, which is a cross-platform language, and makes use of cross-platform libraries - this allows the same code to run both on Windows, Linux and OS X.

What's New

Version 1.2:
  • Picard now requires at least Python 2.6
  • Removed support for AmpliFIND/PUIDs
  • Add support for the Ogg Opus file format
  • It's now possible to download cover images without any plugin. Cover Art Archive images can be downloaded by image type
  • Improved directory scanning performance
  • Prefer already-loaded releases of the same RG when matching more...

Requirements

  • OS X 10.7 or later

This looks good but give too much wrong info (98% or so is wrong as in totally wrong destruction) and couldn't identify a majority of tracks at all without acoustic id (which doesn't seem to work in practice).

In addition you can't block correct tags from being "corrected" in any sane way.

I went with MPFreaker that at $10 is certainly worth the fee as it actually works · for at least 30% of my files but nothing wrong  — and let's you tell which tags to leave alone.

To be fair, of your results will vary depending on what music you have and the state you collection is in, but mine was in pretty good shape, except for release names (album).

Also, the complete lack of — or difficulty in finding — prevention of correct tags is the basis for my review.

Great work by the dev!

This outperforms paid for apps like TuneUp. I would love to be able to add tracks from iTunes but I can live with creating a custom folder and opening that folder in Picard.

It isn't entirely intuitive but it still outperforms the overpriced commercial bloatware I just trialled.

Be aware that it seems to stall if you scan too many tunes at once for acoustic fingerprints.

The newest version is 1.2, which has branched into a 10.7+ bundle and a 10.4-10.6 bundle; the source code is also available at the dev's site.

The Best Renaming Software I Have Found

Will rename all your tracks the same as your tags so saves a lot of time. I have a code that gives me 01 Artist - Trackname and that's just how I like it. Would absolutely love it if it had the option to make all tags TitleCase - maybe it does if you know the right codes but that makes it difficult to use if you're a non coder. Sometimes a little buggy but not too bad really

Prefer to do tagging in Itunes though as here you can only do one track at a time I think.

Just missing a search/filter to see files that have updated info, visible in the list by a *.
Great. I adopt it!

I am just happy to find some renaming ID3 Stuff with so many possibilities. Please get on that work!
My wishes are preferences for genres or other infos- just to get that info inside my ID3.

And support for viewing more fields, and please let me decide which one I will save. Some that are o.K. i can not save - so have to do by hand second time - that is not so helpful...

o.K. sound like some input... come on I will support this - if you make a step in to now!

I second that last review.

Is this proceeding at all toward a 1.0?
