When I was studying for the HSC (final high school exams) I alphabetised my CD collection. Does everyone do that? Does everyone find normally silly or mundane tasks scintillating and satisfying when there’s something worse to do?
At the moment I have several assignments to do, when they’re done I have exams. It’s not a good time. So last week I mentioned Inbox Zero, which is working out well for me. After that I also read the suggestion that I could put iTunes on a diet. It seemed like a great idea. I suspected that I had music in my iTunes library that I either didn’t like or didn’t know was there. I thought while I was going through files I could make sure the ID3 tags were correct. Then I can download as many album artworks as possible and the iTunes album view is prettier and more informative.
To do that I felt that a simple, easy to use program would be helpful. After some searching I found Musorg. It’s excellent! It’s simple, but extremely easy to use and functional. It edits ID3 tags (artist, album, track number etc) for individual files and in batches. It can also edit the file names and folder names according to track number, artist, song name, whatever criteria you give it. I can’t recommend it enough for simple mp3 editing.
There could be some improvements made in future versions; changing folder in the program loses unsaved changes, it took me a couple of goes to figure that out. Also, if you delete something in Finder it doesn’t register in Musorg, you have to go backwards in file hierarchy so that the file or folder isn’t in view anymore.
It all worked well though. Perhaps now I’ll focus on assignments! :sheepish:
