taghycardia - MP3 tagging

#1 Post by lautrepay » Tue Sep 20, 2011 9:06 am

MP3 tagging for the lazy: minimum settings, minimum user interaction. Almost fully automatic batch mp3 folders processing before uploading to a portable player.

Features:
  • Read-only scanning of the entire MP3 folder tree
    Automatic detection and correction of missing tags, Artist/Album/Genre inconsistencies and track numbering errors - in order to prevent "decomposition" of your MP3 albums on a tag-sorting portable player
    Integrated Discogs.com search
    Optional auto renaming of music folders by the fixed pattern:
    %Artist% - %Album% (%Year%)
    Ability to review, edit and cancel individual changes before physically applying them
    Integrated folder tag editor
    Detection of compilation albums, ability to transfer your personal compilations to an iPod without losing their integrity
    Full Unicode support

Looks like a nice program! Will definitely check it out.

Thanks lautrepay for recommending.

Just tested. Doesn't look like it allows renaming of files. Only does tagging at the moment.
is it stealth? ;)

  • Yep, no file system changes appart from the optional folder renaming ["Optional auto renaming of music folders according to the fixed pattern: %Artist% - %Album% (%Year%)"]...

      As the scanning is read-only, taghycardia can also be used as a purely diagnostic tool that tells what is wrong with your mp3 tags, and based on that info you can later reorganize and fix your music library using specialized tag and rename tools.
    I'd recommend MP3Tag (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1137) or TagScanner (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1427) for more comprehensive audio file management needs... :idea:

I use foobar2000 for pretty much all of my tagging and renaming needs, but was kind of curious with this app.

I think file tagging and renaming are both needed in a tool like this.

freakazoid,

Thanks for checking out my app.
In the future, a comprehensive rename/scripting feature could be implemented if more of the users request it.
However, that is not what the utility was meant for, namely, to make sure I'll know what exactly I'm listening to on a tag-sorting portable player (ipod/iphone/windows phone now too), and do it in a quickest and easiest possible way.

No problem, electronutsie.

Your app does what it says, so that's good.

@electronutsie: how about an option to delete album cover from media files -- optionally after extracting 'cover.jpg'/'folder.jpg'? Too much redundancy is a thing... :)

Thank you for the suggestion.
Actually, I've thought of something like this. The option might be implemented in an update soon.

Great! 8)

On a related note, I see you have FLAC/OGG tagging (APE?) in the works and I just wonder if AAC/MP4 tagging wouldn't make taghycardia more future-proof? 'Cause of HTML5, among other reasons, it's looking more and more like it will be the coming de facto standard...

This is definitely planned, the groundwork has been laid, however the code is rather rudimentary at this stage. I'm always postponing this "till I have enough time"...

    Some interesting new features, especially "Support for music file formats other than MP3". OTOH, there's now a Pro version (see https://gosell.it/product/test-44), mostly with lyrics related features -- these can be previewed (as well as disabled) in the free version...
