Do you have some audio tracks whose tags you would like to edit? Kid3 is a handy application that will make your work especially easy if you have multiple tracks with similar details. The portable tag editor is compatible with many audio formats, including MP3, WAV, FLAC, WMA, OGG, MPC, AIFF, AAC, WavPack, Opus, TrueAudio, Speex and tracker modules.

Using Kid3 Audio Tagger

Being a portable application, we downloaded and extracted the application files to our preferred destination. We chose a flash drive to make it truly portable. The program's user interface was divided into five parts: the left side featured directory and file listboxes while the right one contained Tag 1, Tag 2, Tag 3 and File sections.

One of the things we liked about the program was the ability to edit both ID3v2 and ID3v1 tags in MP3 audio files. Many of the tag editors out there allowed us to edit either of the tags but not both. We could even convert one type of tag to another.

We set details like album, artist, genre and year to the same values when handling audio files that required similar information. We then applied them to all the files at the same time, allowing us to save significant time and avoid the monotony associated with entering the same information over and over.

The program made it even easier for us when the details we wanted were contained in the audio file names, as it allowed us to generate tags from the names. Conversely, we could create file names from tags. The editor ensured consistency when creating names by automatically controlling lower and upper case characters and replacing substrings or characters to get rid of illegal characters.

We selected all the audio files whose tags we wanted to edit and clicked the 'To: Tag 1' button under the 'File' section to set track, album, artist and title values. We set genre and year values by respectively selecting the appropriate genre in the 'Genre' combobox and typing the desired year.

Kid3 can extract information for full albums from such websites as Discogs, TrackType.org, gnudb.org, MusicBrainz and Amazon. We easily configured the import format using regular expressions. We could also export the details in Kover XML, playlist, HTML and CSV formats.

In addition to creating tags and files names, the program enabled us to generate playlist files. Right-clicking a file displayed a context menu that gave us the options to expand or collapse all, rename, move to trash or play the file.

Conclusion

Kid3 is an intuitive audio tag editor that allows batch editing for faster operations. You can use it to generate tags from file names or vice versa. You can use it to edit both ID3v2 and ID3v1 tags, and there is no steep learning curve to climb.
