    Anyone know if there's a good one available?

    Right now I use the tag editor in AIMP3 but it can't do something I'd like to do, at least I can't find a way. In the picture, there are numbers in front of the titles in the Title column. Ideally, I'd like to remove them all with a batch process, leaving only the titles.

    Any suggestions?

    Mp3tag

    It will let you do that easily, for example, by converting from filename to tag (%tracknumber% %title%).

    Doh! You're right. I didn't think Mp3tag supported FLAC but it does. Thanks. :)

    I tried Mp3tag but I'm not finding a way to convert the Titles. The filenames have numbers in them, 01 Strutter, 02 Deuce, etc. So converting filenames to titles doesn't change anything. I'm trying to remove the numbers in the titles.

    I'm starting to remember having this same problem some time ago with some Mp3s and never could resolve it with Mp3tag. erim, if you know what I'm doing wrong I'd love some instruction.

    Audacity does this to my tags whenever I do any kind of batch processing and then export multiples. I've explained the problem in considerable detail in their forum all to no avail. :mad:

    Use foobar's autotagger. Select all your files - properties - tools - automatically fill values. If a file is named "01 Rock" the pattern is %tracknumber% %title%.

    1. select the files
    2. click on the button that says "Filename - Tag"
    3. type %track% %title%

    That's it. Make sure you save the results at the end.

    Then you can also do the reverse to change the file names, if that's what you want (with or without track numbers). You can also clear all track numbers from the tags in the properties...
