Automatic batch loading of tags is the most efficient way to fill up or correct music info and album covers. Amvidia Tag Editor can retrieve music metadata and artworks from online databases and local paths.
LOADING TAGS FROM NETWORK
Tag Editor can retrieve music info from MusicBrainz, AcoustID, and CoverArt services. Those online services help to fix missing or incorrect Artwork, Title, Artist, Album, Album Artist, Year, Track Number and Tracks Total tags.
Tag Editor can rely on existing tags to speed up the online search for missing tags. If audio files haven't any tags or they are incorrect, the application can identify songs by their 'fingerprints' using AcoustID service. After Tag Editor can download corresponding metadata from MusicBrainz and CoverArt databases.
LOADING TAGS FROM PATHS
Using 'Loading tags from paths' feature is the fastest way to tag structured audio collections. For example, if a filename contains Title and Number of a song, a folder with album songs named as Album, and an Album folder is located within Artist folder; Tag Editor correctly 'guesses' and extracts accurate metadata from the file path. The editor can also import local images as Artworks.
