Metadata Tagging software

Post by tresero » Thu Jun 27, 2019 6:45 pm

I admit it. I'm old school. I still have Ampex 456 tapes, and a ton of DAT, ADAT, and DA88 :)

I realize I'm guilty of not adding the metadata I need to my mp3's etc. Any suggestions? I mostly use Cubase at the moment and it seems that I'm either missing the function or it is very rudimentary in the tagging department.

TIA!

Jon

Cubase lets you add metadata. Depending on your version, you can edit the Codec settings in the export window, which also leads to the metadata information (ID3-tag for MP3, et cetera). The functions are there. ;-)

For MP3s, MP3tag is a handy free little tool.

Thanks! I'll dig into it. I have Cubase 10 pro

You'll find the option to edit the ID3-tag in the Codec Settings menu in the audio export window. They hid it a bit since Cubase 9.

If you are on a Windows PC, you can simply right-click on the mp3 file name, select "Properties", and add metadata.

Thanks Russell!
This will come in handy as the tag editor in Logic isn't very user friendly.

Got me confused Chris!
Logic is on mac, whereby Tag and rename is for PC. I use Kid3, and I've seen Amvidia tag editor. Both work on mac
