    Improperly tagged albums

    I have 700 albums of different genres in my library. Many ripped with dbpoweramp, the rest bought at Qobuz.

    Dozena of albums are improperly classified: wrong music style, artist confused with composer in classical, and a lot placed in Various, both for genre and artist.

    Can anyone suggest me a method to reorganize all that properly , without having to edit the tags one by one if possible ?

    Thanks

    Improperly tagged albums

    Try Bliss or Picard - or any MP3 tagger with Musicbrainz support.

    Tried picard

    I tried Picard. All it did was to scramble the New category.

    How do you add your configuration to the posts like you did?

    Thanks for the help

    New music is based on time stamps in the files , some tag editors have the option to not touch change time when you edit , so you can choose .

    I don't know if can get away from some manual work , but MP3tag and puddletag for example have to opurtunity to select more albums or folders at the same time , so you can for example choose the whole folder containing all albums by some artist and set for example all the artist and album artist tags to the same one . It's manual work but can fix the gross errors fast .

    Also easytag on Linux. But the bigger issue is that cddb is inconsistent, particularly on genre. Even artist names are inconsistent too.

    I realise that this isn't helpful right now, but when I ripped my 5000+ CDs I was very careful about tagging, but even now 5 years down the line I come across errors now and again. To an extent I don't think perfect tagging is ever possible with a large library. In your situation I'd start by thinking about what tags are most important to you to get right and how you want them to work. For me artist is crucial and I've spent a lot of time getting that right, especially on collaborations and compilations.

    My library is pretty good now, but the genres are a mess and I don't think I'll ever get round to sorting that out.

    Hahaha

    genres are always a mess - unless you define your own and not using any db from the worldwidewet.
    I hardly find a soundtrack/score where not all tracks are "music" (spoken Text from the Actors) but tagged as Soundtrack and not Spoke/speech.
    And even the other mess with "Synth-pop and or "Synthpop" - but thats an easy job for the cmd line
