You want your audio files well organised… Welcome.

Metatogger is the new generation of tag editor allowing you to rename, tag and easily sort your MP3, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA and M4A files.

What is Metatogger?

Metatogger is a tag editor for audio files. These tags or metadata are helping to exploit with more efficiency audio files data. Most of the files are not coming along with metadata, while others are having wrong, useless or inconsistent data. Sometimes, even file name doesn't reflect the true content of the file. It is then difficult to identify the piece without playing it. This is where Metatogger makes it great.

Metatogger allows correcting or completing audio files tags. It comes with features that allow:

  • manual tags editing or with C# scripts;
  • retrieve tags from file name or paths;
  • rename files with tags content;
  • look after duplicate audio files;
  • organize files according to tags (copy, move, symbolic link);
  • retrieve tags in a local database of 1.5 million public records;
  • retrieve covers and lyrics from Internet;
  • identify files using acoustic fingerprinting technology;
  • easily clean unwanted tags.

Metatogger works with Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, M4A (AAC and ALAC) and WMA.

Metatogger brings together functionalities and ease of use thanks to a pioneering interface. The software does only one thing and makes it well, audio tag editing.

MusicBrainz Database

Metatogger allows automatic tagging when audio files are identified within the 1.5 million records local database coming from the MusicBrainz community. It is for instance very easy to locate track numbers!

Filetree use

It is possible to retrieve tags from a file name or from its path. Mutually, files can be renamed, copied (in true or virtual), or moved according to their respective tags.

Acoustic fingerprint recognition

Even if the filetree doesn't have valuable information to exploit, if the title or the singer are unknown, automatic tagging of the file is possible. Metatogger embeds Acoustid acoustic fingerprint technology.

Add lyrics and covers

Metatogger gives access to website for automatic lyrics finding. Metatogger is able to seach for covers through, to allow direct embedding in tags or to copy them in the folder where the audio file is stored.

Identification of duplicates

Metatogger is looking after duplicates using Acoustid acoustic fingerprint recognition technology. Even if they are not strictly identical (encoding parameters, file format, etc.), duplicates will be found.

Fast and easy tag editing

Any kind of tag can be added (multiple tags or with carriage returns) or deleted. With C# scripts, Metatogger allows to process all tags: character replacement, font modification, etc.

Metatoggerin the specialised press?

Metatogger offers fast and easy tagging of large music collections, a high degree of customizability, an attractive and efficient interface, and lots of convenience, including automatic updates. It shows just how far MP3 tag editors have come since the Napster era.


Après avoir testé un grand nombre d’applications diverses et variées en vue de renommer et ajouter des informations à mes fichiers MP3, aucune ne m’avait véritablement convaincu jusqu’à ce que j’installe Metatogger. Le point fort de ce logiciel (en plus d’être gratuit) étant qu’il fait vraiment tout tout seul… et qu’il le fait bien…


No overkill of tabs, windows, hundreds of options, slow tagging, large size. Metatogger is a solution for everyone. […] Behind its sober interface, has the most powerful features to customize as far as you want your music library. Adding your own tags is a breeze, organizing a huge library with personalized patterns, and even small scripts is not a problem, as little as sorting all the files you want to tag according to every possible criteria. The only limit for the advanced user is your own imagination. There are many other things to be said […], making the software faster, smaller, and more ergonomic than its competitors.

Softpedia Team,

The good thing about Metatogger is that you can instantly preview any changes done to the file’s tags and then decide if you want to keep those changes or you’d rather discard them. Metatogger features a very attractive interface with a nice design.
