puddletag is an audio tag editor (primarily created) for GNU/Linux similar to the Windows program, Mp3tag. Unlike most taggers for GNU/Linux, it uses a spreadsheet-like layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable.

The usual tag editor features are supported like extracting tag information from filenames, renaming files based on their tags by using patterns and basic tag editing.

Then there’re Functions, which can do things like replace text, trim it, do case conversions, etc. Actions can automate repetitive tasks. Doing web lookups using Amazon (including cover art), Discogs (does cover art too!), FreeDB and MusicBrainz is also supported. There’s quite a bit more, but I’ve reached my comma quota.

Supported formats: ID3v1, ID3v2 (mp3), MP4 (mp4, m4a, etc.), VorbisComments (ogg, flac), Musepack (mpc), Monkey’s Audio (.ape) and WavPack (wv).

    It is the exact equivalent of Mp3tag and itself is the best tag edit for linux, I love it!!

    Hands down the most powerful, feature-rich audio tagger out there, regardless of platform. If you take the time to explore its pattern combo box, function library, scripting functions, actions, tag sources, masstagger, extended tags view, in-line editing capabilities (such as cascading a single edit across multiple tracks and ability to copy and paste multiple fields from one track to one or more additional tracks), ability to rearrange the various screen elements to suit your needs and ability to deal with many thousands of tracks in a single session you'll realise that there's virtually nothing it can't do where tagging is concerned, even if dealing with many thousands of tracks at a time. It's clear puddletag was borne from many years of experience tagging audio and built to ease workflow and take the tediousness out of the equation wherever possible.

    Excellent for managing my FLAC library's Vorbis comments. I used both EasyTAG and Ex Falso extensively before switching to puddletag, and since the switch haven't looked back. Couldn't be happier with this program!
