The MP3 format helped to make music truly portable and ID3 tags can be used to house a wealth of information that will be displayed during playback in a media player or on an MP3 player. While the vast majority of purchased MP3s will have ID3 tags already created, it is not always going to be the case and there are also personally ripped tracks to consider.
Having tracks which are incorrectly labelled is not only annoying, it can also be confusing. Mp3dings is a free Java based MP3 tagger that can be used to quickly and easily edit ID3 tags so your music has the correct information attached to it.
The program can be used to manually add and edit tags, but it can also be used in other ways. If you have a series of MP3s which are suitably named but do not have tags, mp3dings can be used to generate the necessary tags from filename.
Conversely, the program can also be used to rename files based on their ID3 tags. With the ability to edit multiple tags simultaneously, mp3dings can help you to keep your music collection properly organised.
