You can open single media files, folders, playlists, CUE sheets, and iTunes tracks in Tag Editor. Use either the Open Dialog window or Drag-and-Drop to add files to Tag Editor.
By default, Tag Editor displays columns with the most common music tags: Artwork, Album, Artist, Filename, Genre, and Comment. To see and edit other columns, right-click on the table header or choose them in the View > Column menu.
Sorting and filtering rows speed up batch tagging.
To sort rows, click a column header, for example, Artist. To change the sorting order from ascending to descending, click a column header again.
You can also insert a keyword in the search field and check the 'Filter' box to show only rows that contain the keyword.
To move selected rows to another window or tab, press the Move button in the toolbar and choose a destination window or a tab.
To load selected tags automatically, press the ⌘+D. Tag Editor can load music metadata from online databases, iTunes, or local folders and filenames in automatic mode.

To edit tags manually or to change automatically loaded metadata, use typing, Copy-Paste, and Find-Replace functions. For quicker batch tagging, select multiple cells or the entire column and apply changes to all selected cells at once.
'Remove Extra Characters' feature cleans audio tags out of extra spaces, text in brackets, improper punctuation characters, and digits at the start and end of tags.
If wrongly encoded text tags, select them and choose suitable encoding in the 'Edit > Fix encoding' menu.
To unify text tags' appearance, select them and choose 'Edit > Change Case'.
Tag Editor can load album artworks from local folders and iTunes or online databases automatically. To load artworks, select corresponding cells, press the ⌘+D shortcut, and choose required options in the 'Load Tags Advanced' window.
To change album artworks manually, paste or drag an image in selected artwork cells.
You can change filenames either manually or automatically.
To change a filename manually, type or paste a new file name in the cell. You can also correct multiple filenames with Find & Replace feature.
To rename files in automatic mode, select them, click the round button next to a filename and choose renaming options.
The changes are going immediately to the audio files after saving. So, it makes sense to review the changes before applying them. The spreadsheet format makes it easy to review the changes and eliminate unwanted mistakes.
Use the app to identify inaccuracies and duplicates in your audio tags. All the changes you have made are highlighted with a grey background. We recommend revising all those cells carefully before saving the changes. Once changes have been saved, they cannot be reverted.
The unwanted changes can be reversed with the Undo or Reload commands.
