Tag&Rename

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 1, 2014

Tag&Rename is a powerful shareware MP3 tag editor and file renamer with many more features than most similar tools, including some very capable standalone freeware and media players with built-in tag editors. Version 3.8.3 adds Discogs authorization support and improved freedb integration.

Pros

Shell integration: Enabling shell menu integration during setup lets you open Tag&Rename from right-click menus in Windows. Like all setup choices, you can change it later in the extensive Program Options.

Many tags: Tag&Rename supports many more tags than most built-in tag editors, including not only common tags like Composer and Conductor but also many unusual tags such as Bit rate, Encoded by, Remixed by, and Initial Key.

File Mask Editor: The Get Tags From File Names tab's Mask Editor includes numerous variables like Album, Year, Track, Comment, Release Time, and Mood. Click More Variables for additional options.

Amazon Web Service: Amazon Web Service users can configure their own account under Program Options: Advanced.

Cons

Busy and wordy: Some of Tag&Rename's setup options need clearer explanations (we chose defaults). A busy layout needs streamlining; for example, tabs like "Get Tags from File Names" could be shortened.

Price pressure: Capable freeware leaves you more money for more music.

Bottom Line

Free tag editors are fine for most users, but music lovers with large libraries will find Tag&Rename not only exceptionally useful but surprisingly affordable, too.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Tag&Rename 3.8.3.
