A powerful, yet user-friendly software solution for music recognition and metadata auto-completion based on a community database.
Metadata contains important information about a file, and when dealing with a song, such data includes artist name, album title or track number.
TagComplete can help you automate metadata completion entirely, for numerous files at the same time.
First and foremost, you need to take the time to choose all the folders where you store your music. The application offers you the possibility to examine the sub-directories as well or to load a previous compilation from the last time you ran the software.
You can even go the extra mile and manually select the tracks you want to process.
The next stage is completely automated and you can only stand back and wait until it completes - basically, your music is analyzed and TagComplete displays tag information that seems to match your songs.
Once TagComplete suggests tags for all your songs, you can review each of them manually and keep the ones you are satisfied with. The actual contents of the audio file is examined and the appropriate tags are suggested.
Otherwise, you can just discard the proposed tags and enter the data yourself.
If you prefer to insert custom metadata manually, you can start by entering the track number, title, artist and album, along with release year and composer name. You can also add comments, copyright data or relevant URL.
Due to TagComplete, you can also attach cover art to your tag, usually the album cover.
To wrap it up, TagComplete can help you save a lot of time and energy when it comes to tagging your audio files. You only need to choose the source folders, then browse the suggested tags and keep the correct ones.

If you’re really keen on keeping your music collection well organized, there’s a pretty high chance that you’re also quite interested in having a structure in the metadata and tags for your tracks. Of course, one can edit basic track info using the default system file viewer, or, audio players that sport such capabilities. However, Mp3tag, just as its name aptly suggests, will provide a specialized framework for managing and editing the metadata of your audio files, in just a few simple clicks.
It’s very likely that your audio collection will have at least several tracks, is not much more. This is why it’s good to be able to edit each track and at the same time visualize the rest, for the sake of efficiency.
Mp3tag accounts for that, by offering a split-view, which relies on a side-panel, where the actual metadata editing can be performed, and the main viewing area, which contains all the tracks in the loaded directory. This way users can always have a peek at the status of the rest of the audio files.
When going past the main features that address the ID3v1 and ID3vX tag editing, one will also find a myriad of features for editing the other file information, which pertains to the album, artist, and even cover.
To go with the quite accessible editing tools, the app comes equipped with a highly customizable settings bank, which we found to be more than appropriate for constructing a custom handling experience.
Mp3tag provides a reliable set of tools that can help you edit the ID tags of your audio files, together with other data, all from within a single, centralized interface.

Split MP3 files by equal parts, equal time, or silence, or manually set the splitting segments on the waveform, as well as edit ID3 tags
AD MP3 Cutter is a straightforward application for splitting audio files, precisely MP3. Why would you want to split audio files? Apparently, for all kinds of purposes — entertainment, work, advertising, and the list can continue. Splitting can be done in a handful of ways with this app, including visual splitting backed up by a waveform file display.
If this is your first MP3 splitter, you might want to take your time learning the basics. Start by adding the file you wish to cut in. Use the waveform graph to prepare cuts within the larger file. The buttons may not have very intuitive placement but are clearly labeled, so you just have to identify them.
Each cut is added in the preview panel below the waveform. Time frames are added to inform about their span, including duration, and title. On the left-hand side, the splitting settings are available for selection. Visual splitting stands at the top of the list, as it's the only method that allows users full control over the file.
The remaining methods are limited in what they can provide but might come in handy in certain situations. Splitting into equal parts, for example, can be done in two ways. By size or by time. Input the desired number of parts, and the app will split your MP3 accordingly. The last method is splitting by silence, and this one might be more useful than it seems at first sight. If you have files with silence gaps, you can let the app eliminate them, reducing their size by cutting the extra weight.
ID3 tags are metadata containers accompanying all MP3 files. Information about the artist, album, genre, released date, and title can be found within such a container. The tags can be rewritten on every split part. Use the right-side menu to add new metadata to newly created files.
AD MP3 Cutter might have a vintage look to it, but the features it offers are still relevant. At least the visual splitting aspect along with the metadata editor is not going to get old too soon. Unless you want a fully-fledged audio editor, this program can help with all your splitting tasks.
