At the time I was looking for a Mac audio tagger with AIFF capability, this was the only free one. There are newer versions available on the website of the creator: 3.6.0, 3.6.1.

Crashes every time I try to save my tag changes. Are my audio files ok? Are they corrupt now? I don't even know. A total nightmare.

This is a great ID3 tag editor for almost any music format. I use it to clean up crappy tags and format titles etc. the way *I* want them done. Very well done, fast, efficient and free. A little suggestion for the author... how about an easy to find donation button so I can send a little appreciation for your dedication on creating a nice little freeware tag editor.
