    EasyTAG is a utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, MusePack and Monkey’s Audio files, and based on a simple and nice GTK+ interface making tagging easier.

    With the tree browser, select quickly the directory to search for supported files (with or without including sub-directories). All files found are displayed in a main with a variable background colour to show, in one glance, the files in the same directory.

    A second useful view mode, organizes the files by artist and by album to have a quick look to all the artists of your collection, and all albums for each artist.

    The interface displays basic file informations taken from the file header, like bitrate or duration. With the interface, you can as well edit common tag fields as : title, artist, album, year, track number, genre and comment which were available into ID3v1.1 and ID3v2.3 tag. But you can also edit specials ID3v2.3 fields like : disc album, composer, original artist/performer, copyright, URL, encoder name and attached pictures.

    Three differents scanners allow you to tag automatically from the filename, rename the file and directory from the tag, and process fields (for example to change the case). The first two scanners use a preview to avoid any mistakes and help you when using or creating yours own patterns.

    If necessary you can use one of the both CDDB modes to fill yours tags with FreeDB servers. First, the automatic way tries to identify the selected files with the correct CDDB album. Else, a manual search lets you to search any word in the CDDB database to identify yourself the right album.

    Also, you can load the content of a simple TXT file (containing filenames) to set name of each file.

    Mass tagging is available with the scanners, but also with buttons to apply a field to all other selected files (small button on the right of each field).

    To prevent mistakes, the undo and redo functions assist the user to recover the last changes.

    The files collection can be export to a play list for Winamp or XMMS.

Does what you’d want it to do well enough. If the description suits your needs, give it a shot, I’m pretty sure you’ll like it.

I really like the way the tagging works.
