Tag is an elegant metadata editor for all of your music.
Tag supports editing of FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Opus, DSF, Musepack, WavPack, Monkey's Audio, Speex, True Audio, Apple Lossless, AAC, MP3, WAV, and AIFF files. The intuitive interface simplifies common editing tasks and also allows more advanced changes including editing multiple album artwork images.
For files with incomplete or missing metadata Tag can guess tag values by matching the filename to a user-defined pattern. Tag can also search Discogs to flesh out any missing metadata, and Tag can even identify and tag unknown files using AcoustID.
- Fixed crash on startup
- Fixed Discogs access

I think this is a must have tool if you might need to edit music tags. - As basically a Windows guy who purchased my MAC mainly for hi-res music playback, I find myself missing a MAC version of the program dbpoweramp. Between Pure Music and iTunes, I find I have enough music file conversion utility but for getting the last music file details (Doors; Door,The; The Doors; etc.) correct for consistent showing and grouping in iTunes, I need a tag editor. iTunes does a fine job but not with FLAC and some other formats, and the file must be imported into iTunes (first) in order to edit the tags. This program is the best for music tag editing (in the MAC world) I have thus far found. And, it works!
Not so good - Everytime I double-click on an MP4, this program opens, instead of a movie player of some sort. I do not think this product is programmed correctly. I decided to delete it, but got the message that the program was still open, even though I had quit it. I'd stay away until the program is more stable. There's no uninstaller either. I had to search for feisty-dog to find all the associated files (two of which were containers in the Library folder). I never used the program to fix tags, but it launched when it should not have.

Replay Gain - Tag can calculate Replay Gain. Handy! (Replay Gain's Album Gain is recognized by iTunes; see Get Info > Options > volume adjust)
Meh - The app is not very intuitive. It is clunky and either there is no artwork or there is a glitch.
Still works in 10.12; great but not perfect - It feels like this app has been abandoned by its developer, which is a shame, because I use it frequently as I import and tag my CD collection. Thankfully it still functions in 10.12, but I am worried about its future. It won’t work indefinitely, after all. It does a really good job tagging pretty much any kind of taggable audio file you throw at it, which is great. I wish it could also preview tracks. It certainly doesn’t need to play the whole track, but a quick 15-30 second preview might be helpful. Another small-but-helpful feature (which I requested once upon a time when the dev was still active) was a way to see the size of any embedded artwork. A tooltip on mouseover, for instance, or just a display beneath the art in the artwork pane. Anyway, it’s a good app though I’m not sure I can recommend an apparently abandoned app that costs $5 when there are doubtless other tagging apps which might do as well for less (or nothing!).
