ID3 Editor

31 August 2020

Create or edit MP3 tag information.

Overview

ID3 Editor is a small and simple MP3 tag editor, which offers the ability to edit the most wanted attributes of the ID3 tags in one window. Although iTunes offers a good interface for editing tags, it does have a few important attributes missing, e.g. 'copyright' and 'encoded by' which is where ID3 Editor saves the day.

MP3 ID3 tags are used to store important information of a music track, such as the track 'title', track 'number', 'artist', 'album' etc. The information can then be displayed in your favorite MP3 player application or on your portable player such as an iPod, a Walkman or other music hardware.

Features:
  • Creates or updates ID3 version 1(.1) and 2(.2/.3) tags.
  • Simple to use.
  • Easily copies and pastes all the tag information.
  • Adds artwork such as album covers.
  • Adds song lyrics.
  • Edits multiple tracks.
  • Cleans version 2 tags by removing invalid and unused tag information.
  • Option to remove V1 and V2 tags.
  • Can change the title and track number based on the file name.
  • Can rename the track file based on the track and title.
  • Ideal for podcasters who need to add information such as copyright.
  • No bloat, just small and simple.

Can it rename the MP3 file itself from the ID3 tag like ID3 used to do?

I don't understand the logic of the serial number registration of this app. I paid for this app, and every time I want to re-install it for any reason (new Mac, new HD, etc..) my serial number is not good because now it's updated to a .1 or .2 version. It's not a new app upgrade! it's just a bug fix update and the serial doesn't work! It's getting annoying. It is a good app (the best of it's kind) but this issue can make anybody pass on it. seriously.

Does the 'Create details from file name' custom option only work when you have paid for the program and have a license. I am having an issue with how the track number is placed in the file name. It keeps putting a hyphen or a dash in between the track number and the title. I don't want that. Can anyone help?

Just what I was looking for. Got my license in 30 minutes. I would like to see some YouTube videos showing examples or more complete instructions. This is actually a powerful little app and examples of how to use it would be great and help others to get more out of it. For example, Andreiard thought he found a bug when he just didn't have a complete understanding of how it works. I stumbled on the hyphen thing in the name, too. With that said, I asked about it and their support promptly replied with more details on the preferences setup.... The title by default is generated by 'track - title' so it will treat anything after the last hyphen as the title e.g. 'track-artist-album-title'. To use a different file name format you need to change the 'Create details from file name' in the advanced section of the preferences to set a file name format to use e.g. if the file name is the title, just set %T as the format. After searching the net over and 3 other software trials I am glad I found this one!

dear developer, I'm maybe a little paranoid ;-) but... why your tag editor trashes my original *bit-perfect* verified rips and writes a brand new file (slightly) larger in size... even when all I'm doing is correct a typo? :-/

The App info says 1.16.47, but the dmg says 1.16.12 - confusing.

I like ID3 Editor and it has served me well for quite a while now. This is the best program that I know of to organize your music on Mac. however, I am moving from Mac to PC for my university studies and I would like to ask if I will be lost?

Doesn't support M4A (Apple Lossless). Only AIFF and MP3. Too bad.

I've used this program for a day now, and found it stable and light. The "Getting Started" chapter of its documentation is not well written, but basically, you can hold down the Command key and drag files to the program's icon to batch edit their tags. You can also drag entire folders : again remember to hold down the Command key, unless you want individual editing. The program also includes a command-line utility (see the "Extras" folder of the installation package), though I've not used it myself.

Could help finding that both reviews here are being written be new members with only one review. This is almost for sure the developer himself. Proof me wrong.

Tell me. Why on earth should I use this? I mean, iTunes already does this and much more.

nice app, I found a little bug and a feature missing: the bug: if the filename has dashes it doesn't always copy the track name right the mis-feature (so to speak): batch track name copy from filenames. this would be nice to have.

Because iTunes sometimes doesn't get it right. I had a CD that was imported using a Linux box some time ago, which I then imported into iTunes when I switched to a Mac. Well, the MP3 files had v1 tags, but the v2 tags were empty. iTunes displayed the tracks correctly in the song browser, but when I played the song, it would add an "_" to the name and strip the tags! ID3 Tag Editor fixed the problem by allowing me to update the v2 tags from the v1 tags.

I found this app after I needed to fix the info in an MP3 that I had edited in iTunes. It appears that iTunes has a habit of screwing up tags for other players, obviously a ploy to make you buy an iPod. It creates the tag correctly and seems to work without problems, it even lets you edit tag information that iTunes doesn't. Could do with a progress bar when updating tags, but it's not a major problem.

Why in the world would anyone pay for something that iTunes does for free? Or many other programs do free of charge, for that matter? Ridiculous.
