View Full Version : Batch Tag update for FLAC

What do folks use (on Windows) to do tag updates on multiple FLAC files at
the same time. I'm looking for a way to go back to previously ripped CDs and
adjust, for example, the album name for all the song files in that album. It
would be really cool if the tool also allowed me to quickly browse all the
Artist/Album/Song tags in my collection in a way that allowed me to quickly
identify abnormalities (i.e., Davis, Miles vs. Miles Davis).

Thanks for you help,
Mark

To be more precise, load the files you want to retag into the foobar playlist, select all of them, right click to get the context menu and select Masstagger -> Edit tags. In the Masstagger dialog, click the "Add" button, select "Set value..." and click OK to bring up the Set value dialog. In this dialog, select the tag you want to change under "Field name:" and type in the value to want to change it to in the "Field value:" area. Select OK to close the dialog, and then "Run" from the Masstagger dialog. This will retag all of the selected files with that tag and value.

Note that this feature is only available in the 'normal' and 'special' versions of foobar, not the 'lite' version.

Bon chance...
