I use most of the time Traktor. Its features: non-free (like beers) but: commonly used among DJs (so you can expect the BPM to be accurate) update MP3 tags to include BPM info extracted from the files, while not losing other information already existing in those tags BPM with 3-decimal (BTW keep in mind that the ID3 BPM is an integer, while a decent music ...

Even multiple tags at once just like in excel you don't need to create an additional CSV file for that. Another additional feature is you can export all that information to an CSV,html,RTF,SFV file if you want ...

I'm using EasyTag for similar tasks on Linux. According to Wikipedia, this software is also available for MacOS and Windows. Screenshot of EasyTag (source: Wikipedia; click image for larger variant) This software should match your requirements (at least those you've explicitly mentioned): it's free (even open source: GNU GPL licensed) You can edit tags, ...

Command Line tools to batch output ID3 tags Here is my collection of ID3 tag viewers. I collected them over the last couple of months for another project I'm currently working on. You can manipulate the PowerShell script to process as many files as you want. But for easier understanding I demonstrated it with a single input file in a first step. taglib » ...

BPM Counter (Abyssmedia) is free (as in you-know-what) and will chew through thousands of MP3s analyzing the BPM and (if you check the option) insert this into the BPM tag. Has a decent GUI, works on Windows 7, 8, and 10 (probably XP but I didn't test), and is very easy to operate. The only downside is that sometimes (maybe about 5-10% of the time) it's ...

MP3diags I have seen the feature to remove whitespace in MP3diags but don't ask me which column it was. This program detects a myriad of errors and you could easily spend some days to fix them all. It's free and available for all major platforms

Jaikoz Pro Music Tagger displays the bpm field so it can be easily edited. But more importantly for you it can match songs to MusicBrainz and then uses the MusicBrainz Id to look up the bpm from AcousticBrainz. The advantage of this approach is the songs have already been analyzed and added to the AcousticBrainz database so it takes no additional time to ...

FLAC files, although they can in principle contain ID3 tags, officially employ Vorbis comments of Flac Tags. See the official FLAC website for the reference. The metaflac utility should be able to read/modify/write the FLAC file metadata, along with any other tool that can edit vorbis comments (such as the reference tool vorbiscomment which is part of ...

I am a little late to the game but my answer may help someone else. I think that you are selling Mp3tag a little short for this task. Its export function is quite robust and will allow you to create almost any text-based format you choose: html, xml, csv, tsv, and json to state a few. For example, I use the following to dump all fields from all files on a ...

I know this is an old post but MP3I Will show you all the meta data inside and can be piped to an output file for text based comparison. Does require Java 8+ though.

Select all tracks or the ones you want, right click ...

So, it's been a couple of days, and I've managed to make some progress on my own. This is very, VERY far from a perfect solution, so I'd still really appreciate a more comprehensive recommendation. First of all: After a LONG period of some quite intensive Googling, I finally found a working download link to the first of the two Mac ports of EasyTag. I would ...

The music player Quod Libet (GitHub · Wikipedia) comes with the tag editor Ex Falso (Wikipedia). Both are free/libre software, available cross-platform, and gratis. Inline editing is not possible, but when right-clicking a track in Quod Libet and selecting "Edit Tags", you can open Ex Falso, which then has this track pre-selected (or press: Alt+Enter). You ...

A simple python script should do the job nicely with the mp3-tagger. On windows you would need to install python and then use pip install mp3-tagger Then something like: import os import mp3_tagger for root, dirs, files in os.walk('.'): # Assuming you would like to do all the files below the current directory for fn in files: if fn.lower()....

Here are 2: pytaglib eyeD3 To install them you can use pip install pytaglib or pip install eyeD3 But keep in mind that pip always needs access to the lib folder to install almost any module. You should look into why you can't install the modules as it should not be a problem.

I know this is an old question, but it just came up while I was searching to see what else is out there... I have used kit3 (https://kid3.sourceforge.io/) to edit metadata in mp3's, and it says it can do the following formats: Edit tags in MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, DSF, FLAC, MPC, MP4/AAC, MP2, Opus, Speex, TrueAudio, WavPack, WMA, WAV, AIFF files and tracker ...

I was able to find an answer to my question, so I'll post it here for posterity. Using exiftool, I was able to view hidden ID3 fields using the command exiftool -b -U -ID3_TDS [filepath] which views the hidden field ID3_TDS and outputs their contents as a binary. All of the other mp3 tags can be viewed by exiftool in a similar way. To see the available ...

I would suggest taking a look at EyeD3 which is both a command line tool and a python library for doing exactly the sort of thing that you are looking for. On it's own it will do a lot of what you need - with a trivial python script it should be able to do exactly what you are looking for using pythons built in csv library. Both EyeD3 and python are free, ...

Try MusicBee. It has a "download artwork" feature which should do the trick for you provided you have the correct ID3 tags. It is a Windows software and it should support flac.

It however does not allow navigation to a directory and playing tracks from a certain folder as you would wish, but you can restrict the content to be played to a specific folder in the SD card. I am using a free version which I did not get from the market ...
