Mp3tag is a powerful and yet easy-to-use tool to edit metadata (ID3, Vorbis Comments and APE) of common audio formats. It can rename files based on the tag information, replace characters or words from tags and filenames, import/export tag information, create playlists and more.

Mp3tag 2.73 changes:
Automatically Select Files
In the past, many users have wished for an option to automatically select files that have been added to Mp3tag's file list. With this version, I've added a new configuration option to 'Options > General' that allows for automatically selecting files. When this option is enabled, files that are loaded when Mp3tag started or are added via drag'n'drop or are added via the right-click option in Windows Explorer are selected automatically.
Selecting All Files via Toolbar
Some users prefer working via keyboard shortcuts, others are effectively using the mouse. To select all files, the most efficient way was to use the Ctrl+A keyboard shortcut. This might change now, especially for the mouse users amongst you, because the current version now features a new toolbar button for selecting all files in Mp3tag's file list.
File Selection when Filtering Files
Till now, the file selection was not preserved when switching from a filter result to the complete file list via F3 or 'View > Filter...'. This had the significant drawback, that files which were identified using the filter and selected in the filtered file list, were not seen in context of the complete file list anymore once the filter has been reset. With this version, the file selection is preserved when disabling the filter.
New Bit-Depth Information Field
Some audio formats offer encoding in different bit depths. This information is now available using the %_bitspersample% information field for audio formats that support different bit depths.
