Jaikoz Audio Tagger (formerly known as Jaikoz MP3 Tag Editor) is a tool for changing the meta-tags of your MP3 files. If these tags aren't created correctly, your music collection won't be organized as well as it could be.

The problem is that sometimes, no matter how hard you try, ID3 tags just won't edit for some reason or keep being removed, deleted or corrupted. Not to mention the fact that going through music files one by one is painfully slow. Jaikoz Audio Tagger aims to deal with such problems, by giving you the power to edit the ID3 tags of almost any file type (not just MP3s as the name suggests). Jaikoz MP3 Tag Tagger supports tagging of MP4, M4A, M4P, MP3, WMA, Flac and Ogg Vorbis files although the developer is constantly releasing new versions that support an ever increasing number of formats.

Jaikoz Audio Tagger doesn't necessarily require you to manually add data though. It uses MusicBrainz which is an online database of over seven million songs which have tags automatically attached to them by MusicIP, allowing a song to be identified by the actual music, so it can perform a match even if you have no metadata. This means that Jaikoz Audio Tagger can automatically tag songs as soon as they are loaded into the interface although as is to be expected, the success rate can be rather hit and miss. For those that aren't tagged correctly, you can manually edit them.

You can edit absolutely everything and even add fields such as the original song writer and mood of the song. Some of this is clearly not essential and it would take you at least five minutes to tag every song with all the available fields. The most impressive thing is the way Jaikoz Audio Tagger handles formats - it seems that no matter what you throw at it, it can edit it.

If your audio collection is incorrectly tagged or you've been struggling to edit your tracks, Jaikoz Audio Tagger is more than powerful enough for most of your needs.
