This is another good one:
Randy's recommendation may offer more features for $0.
I've used Tag&Rename since my early days of MP3 in the 90s and it's evolved to being very robust
(perhaps too robust for those desiring a simple editor).
Here's a piece of software I'm seeking -- perhaps someone knows of a Windows program that does the
following: if I've ripped a CD to WAV files on my hard drive, if I convert those files to FLAC with
a batch-converter, is there any program that can then go and retrieve the tag information for me? Or
do I need to burn the WAV to a CD (or find the original CD among the pile of thousands) and then rip
the CD to FLAC using one of the many programs that retrieve the tag info as part of the ripping
process? I grabbed hundreds of CDs to WAV before I got into FLAC, so it would be really convenient
not to have to go back to the CDs.
