Tagging mp3s

Monday, July 6th, 2009

squeezeplayI’ve been a little pre-occupied with things, and needed to return to tagging my music cd and mp3 collection, which is a mamouth task, converting all the tags to ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1 and downloading all the album art, amongst other things going on in andysworld!

But these are the tools I use for free, Mp3tag v2.43 ( to tag the music collection correctly and it also downloads album art, and also Album Art Aggreagator v.1.4.6, batch album art downloader. The URL is broken for this, so use Google. I also use iTunes integration for playlist creation, but I’ve recently stopped using this, because my collection has grown, and it takes a while for iTunes to startup and shutdown.

Here are the current Library Statistics

Total Tracks: 10,991

Total Albums: 1,173

Total Artists: 1,316

Total Genres: 107

Total Playing Time: 789:36:50

and I’m only about a third through!
