MusicBrainz Picard is a free mp3 file tagger that allows you to identify and categorize your music with more accurate tags and filenames. A great thing about this program is its ability to easily fingerprint and identify unmarked tracks. There are cases in which you don't even know the album or artist information, and now with this great program you will be be able to get the information you want and apply the corresponding tags to your files. To identify them the program creates a unique digital thumb print that is processed and compared to the MusicBrainz database. The user interface is simple and pretty intuitive, although some buttons are a little bit confusing and do not immediately allude to their true functions. Another drawback is the lack of an Album Art. If you click there, the program searches for the album and displays it in a browser window. The supported formats are WMA, MP3, MP4 (ID3), FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, ,Musepack, WavPack (APEv2 tag) and Speex (Vorbis comment). All in all, MusicBrainz Picard is a fantastic program that will help you to clean your music collection and have everything with its name.
