If you ever need to modify the tags of your music library (made of
MP3s) I would recommend you **audio/puddletag**. This tool will let
you see all your music metadata like a spreadsheet and just modify the
cells to change the artist name, title etc... You can also select
multiple cells and type one text and it will be applied on all the
selected cells. There is also a tool to extract data from the filename
with a regex. This tool is very easy and pleasant to use.
There is an option in the configuration panel that is good to be aware
of, by default, when you change the tag of a file, the modification
time isn't changed, so if you use some kind of backup relying on the
modification time it won't be synchronized. In the configuration
panel, you will find an option to check which will bump the
modification timestamp when you change a tag on a song.
