MusicBrainz Tagger

By: MordredKLB

Allows tagging files using data from MusicBrainz.

  • Fetches data by automatically calculated MusicBrainz Disc ID, existing Artist/Album or MusicBrainz Album ID tags
  • Uses the latest version of MusicBrainz web service, which corresponds to the NGS data model
  • Supports many different tags, including artist, album, date, tracknumber/totaltracks, discnumber/totaldiscs, label, catalognumber, barcode etc.
  • Supports MusicBrainz-specific tags: Artist ID, Album ID, Release Group ID, Disc ID, Track ID, album type, album status
  • Missing TOCs can be submitted to MusicBrainz from the context menu.

Current version: 0.4.7, released on 2021-05-12

Change log:

0.4.7 - 2021-05-12
  • New option "Write ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE to DATE". Check this if you don't care that the release date of your copy of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours was a 2008 reissue and instead always want the original 1977 date to show.
  • When a release has multiple labels attached to it, they will all be written as multi-value tags.
  • When searching by artist/album, component will attempt to strip release "descriptors" from the album title. Ex.: "Master of Puppets (Deluxe Edition)" will become "Master of Puppets".
  • Aborting a search no longer displays any "User Abort" popups.
  • Improved some dialogs
  • Squashed several crashes

Works with foobar2000 v1.4 and newer
