MusicBrainz Picard Review

Sven Sorensen
Free and open source tag editing tool for MP3, OGG, FLAC files that includes automatic tagging with audio fingerprints
A review of MusicBrainz Picard by Sven Sørensen

Whether you have a small or large collection of music files, they always seem to contain incorrect tags, misspellings and otherwise incorrect information. MusicBrainz Picard completely simplifies the automation of tagging and renaming your collection of music files.

To start off, MusicBrainz Picard supports a number of different music files including the two most popular: FLAC and MP3.

The utility of Picard is very useful and allows you to organize your music collection in a mostly automated way. It supports something called AcoustID which works in a somewhat similar way to Shazam. Once files are identified by MusicBrainz Picard, you can go ahead and batch rename and tag files based on the information it has gathered.

On top of actually taking a sample of the music file to gather information, MusicBrainz Picard can also gather information from the existing metadata present in files.

Everything that MusicBrainz Picard does is customizable and you can have it rename your entire MP3/FLAC collection based on the actual content of the file.

There is a little bit of a learning curve due to the program layout and use of more advanced automation so we'd suggest playing around with a few sample files until you're comfortable with it.

In conclusion, MusicBrainz Picard is an awesome application which can really help you better organize your music collection.

MusicBrainz Picard can batch modify ID3 tags and automatically tag MP3 files.

  • Supports all popular music formats, including MP3, FLAC, OGG, M4A, WMA, WAV, and more
