MusicBrainz Picard2.4.1

11 August 2020

Label and tag your music with correct ID3 tags.

Overview

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 in MusicBrainz Picard

Version 2.4.1:
Bugfixes:
  • App does not start on macOS 10.13 High Sierra
  • Scripting documentation uses an ugly font on Windows
  • Function names in script documentation not readable with dark theme
  • No tracknumber tag if track number is 0
  • "Use track relationships" is including release relationships
  • User is warned about color changes when exiting options, even if no change was made
  • Crash parsing bad date in metadata
  • Deleting "Total Tracks" or "Total Discs" from Vorbis tags causes save to fail
  • Detecting track number from filename wrongly detects leading or trailing numbers
  • Instrument arranger is not being mapped for tagging using the correct key
  • Crash when typing $noop() in the script editor
New Features:
  • Support Microsoft WAVE format (RIFF/WAVE) tagging with ID3
  • Support DSDIFF (DFF) files
Improvements:
  • Support RIFF INFO chunks for WAVE files
  • Use tag list editor for preserved tags
  • Improve function documentation for $firstalphachar
  • Inefficient reading of tracks leads to slow saving on some file systems and network shares
  • Use Consolas font on Windows for monospace font (script editor, log view etc.)
  • On macOS use dark syntax theme if dark mode is enabled (currently only when running from source)

same msg - “MusicBrainz Picard.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash." I don't understand this - all you have to do is set up a Sierra and High Sierra clean install to see that your latest versions of this app won't work on them anymore. ???

"This app is compatible with your macOS" - no, version 2.3.1 is not - crashes on launch. I don't understand how a release designed to fix this issue gets released still with the bug?? Either something is wrong with your test bed, or you've loaded the wrong version.

Still has a problem - "Picard is damaged - move to the trash" when trying to launch latest version under 10.12.6 .... if the developer could post beta versions here we'd be willing to send crash logs

LOVE this program! LOVE this program! LOVE this program! So may screwed up tags -- fixed! No typing, copying, pasting, searching for cover art, etc, etc, etc. Free and works beautifully. One complaint, I didn't download it years ago.

I just reorganized and tagged a pretty messy 25000+ tracks collection with it. It detected about 2/3 correctly, half of the rest was just picking another release - the other half of the rest was in fact hard work with manual searching or filling in data from discogs. But it did the job well. Some minor flaws (not loading all files from a large folder, not matching tracks that have "featuring" stuff in the title), but not a showstopper.

I use this all the time but I'm pretty sure I don't know how to use it. I probably only use 10% of its features.
