ID3 Tags in Converted Files

By default AudioConverter Studio copies any tag information from your source audio files to the converted ones. If you convert FLAC to MP3, APE to MP3, MP3 to OGG, etc., such information as title, artist, album is copied (if available in the source files). If you rip Audio CD, track information is retrieved from CD-Text or downloaded from the online database and, again, saved into the converted files. If you convert a large file into individual tracks using information from CUE, track details from the CUE file will go into the output audio files.

So, ID3 tags are managed automatically, without any special adjustments (and ID3 is used in the broader sense here, referring to all types of audio tags, including FLAC tags, APE tags, OGG comments, and so on). But you can also customize certain things.

First of all, it is possible to disable tags, so that no meta information is copied to the converted or ripped audio files. To do so, choose "File" - "Options",

File - Options

then go to the "Conversion settings" tab.

ID3 tag settings

In the "Saving tags" area, enable the "Don't save tags" box.

Here, you can also see two further tag-related options:

  • Save id3v2 tags for MP3. This will enable saving the ID3v2 version of tags (otherwise, only ID3v1 will be saved). ID3v1 contains only basic plain-text tags, while ID3v2 may contain lyrics, album art and other details. You may need to disable ID3v2 for compatibility purposes, or to discard information that you do not need (like huge cover art images).
  • Save ID3 in Unicode. This option may be preferred for languages that use non-Latin characters (accented characters, cyrillic, etc.), but certain devices may be unaware of Unicode, in which case they show strange characters instead of title, artist, album information, or nothing at all. If you have such device, you may need to disable this option.

What if you see a typo in tag information, when you open your files in AudioConverter Studio? Just click the field and correct it!

Edit ID3 tags

In the same way, you can provide some tags manually, if there is no information, or replace the existing tags completely.

When ready, click the "Convert" button to convert your audio files to the specified target format.

Thank you! I am enjoying your product very much. It saves me so much time in my work where certain projects require large batch conversion of .WAV files to .WMA files. Previously my colleagues and I were doing this manually!
