There's nothing worse than browsing through your music library finding most of the tracks lack basic information. (We've all been there.) Some of them don't have album arts and some even don't have correct names. Normally, music should have complete ID3 tags embedded, including information like artist, album, genre and more. But before all these anonymous tracks driving you crazy, check out Wondershare TidyMyMusic for Mac, which just does the ID3 editing perfectly and automatically. Waste no time now and let's see the step-by-step guide below.
1 Import your music library
As soon as you open the smart program, it will scan iTunes to add all the music to its file tray. And when you open this program next time, it will do the scanning again in case that you have purchased and added new songs in the iTunes library.
If you have music stored on your computer but not managed by iTunes, you may need to import the music all by yourself. Go to the Tidy Music tab and press the Open File button or directly drag the music folder to the file tray.
2 Identify ID3 tag automatically
Notice a Scan button in the header? Press the button and then the program will find out all the unidentified music and get them identified. And during the whole process, duplicate songs can also be found out. If you select just one song, you can get its ID3 information by clicking the Identify button on the bottom right.
After all information is found out, select one song and click the Apply button to add all information to each song.
3 Edit ID3 Tags as you want
The above is talking about how to automatically get information from the internet or database. However, you can also edit ID3 by yourself. Click on the Edit icon shown as below. Then drag any image to the album art area to change the album cover and type in any words to change other information in the editing field.
After all these steps, you can have a clean music library easy to organize. In addition, you can play music by double-clicking the music thumbnail. Can't wait to have a try? Just download one and give it a go.
Tip: What is ID3 or ID3 tag?
ID3, a metadata container, is used to embed in the MP3 audio file format. The information can include song title, artist, album, genre and much more. Two versions of ID3 are available: ID3v1 and ID3v2 while the latter one can include more information like album art.
