    "Easiest and Flexible Tool For Tagging Audio Files"

    February 16, 2013  |   By PJFTL


    Tag info obtained from FreeDB, TrackType, Amazon (Major global sites), Discogs, MusicBrainz and Beatport, customize various tags based on how you want to see them, developer is very responsive for support, Handles ID, create your own tags, supports various tag formats, very user friendly.


    None at this time.


    I searched a lot of places and tried a lot of different tag programs people rave about and found they all had serious shortomings. I stumbled upon Tag Scanner and without making any changes it was usable right out of the box, it was easy, and it got me the results I was looking for. Currently my music DB sits at over 28,000 files and each one I have put through Tag Scanner. I was very surprised at how easy it was to customize tags, plus if I had music that was so obscure none of the online databases had the info on, I was able to use my own values and save it so you wouldn't know. In my opinion, the reason why TagScanner is successful is because it had a single purpose and doesn't try to be something it's not. This is one of those little gems you have to give it an honest try to believe.
