Edit MP3 Tags, ID3v1 Tagger, ID3v2 Tag Editor, MP3 Tag Editor

MP3 Tags are stored inside MP3-files. There are two basic versions of the tags: id3v1 and id3v2.

The first version (id3v1) contains the following fields:

  • Track number.
  • Title.
  • Artist.
  • Album.
  • Year.
  • Genre.
  • Comments.

So, id3v1 has only a small part of song's info. Besides, its fields cannot exceed 30 symbols (if track # is present, the length of the comment field shouldn't be more than 28 symbols).

This was the reason for introducing id3v2. Fields of this version are not limited in length. Moreover, now it is possible to save lyrics, photos, etc. inside a MP3-file.

In addition to above mentioned fields, id3v2 supports the following:

  • Album Artist.
  • Composer.
  • Original artist.
  • Copyright.
  • Internet address.
  • By whom encoded.
  • Lyrics (text of song).
  • Pictures.
  • BPM (beats per minute).

148 genres are supported for id3v1, plus custom genres for id3v2.

mp3Tag is great, by the way. I am a bit of an addict when it comes to music. I download a lot of music files from blogs and many of them are poorly tagged and named. mp3Tag makes the process of making them more useful so very easy. I have hundreds of files from a time before I purchased mp3Tag and am now going through those files to fix them. I simply could not do this without mp3Tag.

Keep up the great work. I look forward to future versions.
