If you listen to MP3 files, then at one point in time you've probably wished you could either fix the name of a song that was entered incorrectly, rename a file to something easier to locate, or even remove a tag. That's where AnalogX TagMaster (TagM) comes in - it can perform these tasks and more on either single files or entire directory trees!
Operation is simple, just launch the program, choose 'Directory' and select the base directory that you keep all your MP3 files in, and it will load up the information for all the MP3 files in that directory and all subdirectories.
As you navigate through the list of files, any file that you click on will display it's tag information on the bottom portion of the dialog. The [L] buttons mean 'Lock', if these are turned on then the field it corresponds to will not change when you select a new file. This is useful when you would like to use the same artist name or something similar, and do not want it to be removed when the next file is selected. Once you have everything in the tag the way you like it, then simply select the 'Update Tag' button and it will be stored.
The rename function can change the filename using the 'Rename Logic' covered later on in the docs - this gives you the ability to rename files based off of information about the MP3 format or ID3 tags.
TagM can also generate playlists which will contain all the files currently selected in the order that they're displayed (from top to bottom). You can click on any of the column titles to sort the MP3's by this field. If you would like to hear just an individual file, just double-click on the file and your MP3 player will be launched.
In the configuration menu is the 'Rename Logic' section which allows you to modify how the program will rename MP3 files, using any of the information contained in the ID3 tags! Here is a list of all the keywords which will insert their respective fields into the filename:
|%Artist%||The artist name|
|%Album%||The album name|
|%Song%||The song name|
|%Track%||The song track|
|%Genre%||The style of music|
|%SampleRate%||Encoding sample rate|
