ID3 tag editor for MP3, OGG/Vorbis, FLAC and MPC files, allowing you to automatically rename files and search for lyrics on various websites

Kid3 is a lightweight and portable software utility that enables you to edit the tags of audio tracks. It supports numerous formats, including FLAC, MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG, and can be handled by all types of users, regardless of their skill level.

Since there is no setup pack included, you can extract the program files to any location on the hard drive and run the EXE file immediately.

It is also possible to move Kid3 to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort.

What's important to mention is that the Windows Registry section does not get entry updates, and the app does not leave files behind after removing it.

The GUI of Kid3 consists of a single window with a well-defined layout, where you can use either the file browser, folder view or "drag and drop" method to import songs into the workspace.

Therefore, you can edit audio tags when it comes to the title, artist, album, comment, date, track number and genre. But you can also change the file name and filename pattern using the tags, as well as copy tags to the Clipboard and paste them.

In addition, you can import data from multiple sources (Discogs, Amazon, MusicBrainz Fingerprint), browse for cover art, create playlists, apply text encoding and filters, set track numbers, as well as convert ID3 versions, among others.

When it comes to configuring program settings, you can create custom genres, enable tag formatting while editing, replace strings, edit proxy parameters, reconfigure keyboard shortcuts, as well as use a custom application font and style, along with native system file dialogs, to name but a few.

Kid3 is pretty light on the system resources, using a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory. It is very responsive to key strokes and mouse events, and includes a help file for less experienced users. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the program did not hang or crash. Thanks to its advanced settings yet intuitive layout, Kid3 should be appealing to the whole audience.
