Is there a tool for Linux (and preferably free) to remove some given text from all the tag fields of all MP3 files in a batch process?

One can use id3info to view comments and Sox to change them:

  • free
  • CLI and allow batch process

One would have to write a script around id3info and SoX to remove some given text from all the tag fields of all MP3 files. Some ideas: https://stackoverflow.com/a/58955612/395857

Apart from running a script, there are also apps that run on Linux that you can bulk select and amend the tags via the tag edit. A good example of one I use is:

There are also other tools that you can use like:

You might like exfalso. If all you want to do is clear some tags from a bunch of MP3s, it should do that without problems. It can be kind of slow if there are a lot of them, though. You can add text to tags of lots of MP3s at once, too.
