You can also edit the tags by acquiring tags in a local database. Supports audio files like MP#, FLAC, OGG, WMA, M4A and more. It’s in French site so just translate it in your browser and you need to install Microsoft.Net 3.5 Framework.

How does it work?

Step 1: Download MetaTogger (HERE) and open

8. Tune Up

An add-on to iTunes that can fix the tags on your music by simple drag and drop and can be used on Windows media player. You can also add cover art and remove duplicate tracks. The reason why it’s easy to fix tags is due to their acoustic fingerprinting. If you have more than 100 songs, you need to upgrade since free version is only limited to 100 songs and 50 albums.Once you activate your Tune up it’s only limited to per computer and you are able to transfer activation code five times. To effectively clean your playlist, I suggest grouping your music to per artist or per album that way you can easily edit the tags properly. If you have some unsupported files, just tag them “non-music” or whatever you want and remove them from your playlist.

After installing Tune UP make sure to click the create playlist so that it will be easier for you to edit


9. Foobar 2000

Foobar 2000 is lightweight and efficient. Same as other programs that you can edit, manage and remove any duplicate track. What I like about this program is their feature which you can make and view other playlists in other tabs which is easier to switch and manage other playlists from another window through their playlist manager.

Support other formats like AIFF, CDA, FLAC, MP3, ACC, WAV, WMA and more.

Recently released their new version 1.3.15 which they improved from previous issues like compatibility problems from internet radio stations and editing tags from audio format M4A and WMA.


At first, it looks very difficult to navigate and use since it looks like it’s in disorder but it would be easy when you get the hang of it. It can manage, edit the tags even by batch, edit your music library. I hope it had just a drag and drop function for it to be easier rather than when clicking another window keeps popping up which confused me at first. The bad thing is it needs Microsoft.Net 3.5 Framework for it to work and it’s advisable for PC with OS Windows 10 since it keeps crashing. Freedb is not working either and lacks support
