Updated Sep 06,2018 | by Cody

If you have a large collection of music, you need a dedicated music tag editor to add or change tag information quickly.

For iPhone users, you may also want to edit music tag of the songs in the Music app. in this article, I will show you 5 best music tag editor software for both iPhone and PC users.


Mp3tag is a Windows-based free metadata editor for audio files. It supports MP3, WMA, AAC, Ogg, FLAC, MP4, other audio formats. Basically, all the audio files are supported. Based on the tag information, this tool can automatically rename all the files.

Mp3tag allows you to bulk edit ID3v1.x or ID3v2.x tags of multiple files at once. More importantly, it can import tags metadata from Amazon, Discogs, MusicBrainz, and more, so you do not need to type them.


Mp3tag has many additional features including adding album covers to your music files, creating playlists, exporting lists of your collections, etc.

MusicBrainz Picard

MusicBrainz Picard is open source music meta tag editor available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It gave you the possibility of properly tagging your album collection and discovering the correct albums/artists for the obscure tracks.


Using AcoustID audio fingerprints, Picard can identify music files by the actual music even if no metadata found. What’s more, Picard has plugin support. If you need a particular feature, you can simply add the corresponding plugin.

The only problem is that you may not understand how this works at first, but when you get used to it, you will be overwhelmed by what this free tool can do.


TagScanner is a free Windows program that enables you to organize and manage your music collection. TagScanner can edit mp3 files and most of the other audio formats, if not all. It can automatically rename files based on the tag information, and generate tag information from filenames.


As most of the music tag editor, TagScanner has batch functions for handling thousands of songs. You can also use it to create Playlists and export playlists to HTML or Excel. Compared to MusicBrainz Picard, TagScanner is easier to use and you can organize all your music with a few clicks.


MediaMonkey is a powerful music player running on Windows OS that allows you to organize and tag your music. It provides a free version and a paid version, which is called MediaMonkey Gold.


MediaMonkey free can automatically add or fix album cover art, lyrics and other metadata with its built-in auto tagger. It also allows you to create and manage music playlists. As MusicBrainz Picard, MediaMonkey also have many plugins available for you to add more functions.


For iPhone users, of course, you can use iTunes to edit Mp3 tag information, but iTunes has benn reported to have a problem updating files with multiple tags. Sometimes, you may find your music metadata restored to original after you edited it in iTunes.

In that case, you will probably want to find an iTunes alternative that is easier to use and reliable as a id3 tag editor. That’s when IOTransfer iPhone music manager has come to play. IOTransfer allows you to permanently change ID3 tags and drag/drop to transfer music files between PC and iPhone.

Let’s how it works:

Step 1. Downlaod, Install and launch IOTransfer.

Step 2. Connect your iPhone to the PC. Then click on the Manage tab from the top menu.  


Step 3. In the left panel, click on the “Music” and all you music on your iPhone will be listed here. From here, you can export or import music to iPhone or edit music metadata.


Step 4. Move your cursor on the song that you want to edit its tag. Then, you will see a pencil “icon” on the right. You can click on it to bring up the mp3 info editor window.


 Step 5. Add or change the information here. You can even change the cover art with your own custom image. After that, click on “Save” to save the changes permanently.


All these 5 music tag editors can do the job by helping you manage your music collections. For normal usage, the Mp3tag or TagScanner is enough and easy to use.
