The exponential growth of our music collections may end up in a hard-to-manage labyrinth of tracks and folders. Stamp ID3 Tag Editor can help you add useful metadata to your WAV, MP3, Ogg, WMA, and FLAC files in a comfortable and convenient way. The tags added will not only help you to keep your collection organized, but will also make your listening experience much nicer and easier in any ID3-compatible media player.
Only one caveat before we go ahead – this is not a batch ID3 tagger that will look for metadata in online databases and will fill the gaps automatically for you. Stamp ID3 Tag Editor is a manual ID3 tagger, which will allow you to fill in, delete, or change the contents of an audio track metadata at a time. Having said that, Stamp ID3 Tag Editor is a comprehensive and easy-to-work-with manual tagger.
When it comes to the content, this ID3 tagger is a middle-of-the-range metadata utility. There are more exhaustive tools out there, with hundreds of highly specialized fields and tags that nobody ever uses, and there are those that merely allow you to add the artist name, the title, and the genre. Stamp ID3 Tag Editor offers the best of both worlds, and includes those tags that we do use – title, artist, album, track number, genre, category, and the album cover – and some of those that will help audiophiles and connoisseurs to make their music collection stand out from the rest – composer, rating, BPM (bits per minute), producer, encoder used, copyright notice, URL, etc.
Only the genre and the category (which include a very convenient pull-down menu to help you avoid spelling mistakes) can be applied to more than one file at a time. All the other tags need to be filled in manually on every track, so it is up to select your tags wisely. One way or another, I can highly recommend this NCH application to anyone needing to organize its small- to medium-sized music collection in an easy and straightforward way.
- Groups all the tags in a convenient one-window interface.
- Supports both ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags.
- Comes with a convenient and simple audio player.
- Integrates with other NCH tools
- Not very practical for large music collections
