Pinky-Tagger is a mass tagger for Linux which supports the MusicBrainz (PUID & TRM) service to find the correct tag information for your files automatically.

With Pinky-Tagger, you can manage your files, download cover, tag via an integrated expression scanner, tag via the MusicBrainz information or even listen to your files (external player support).

Pinkytagger can tag complete albums, even if some fingerprints from your files are unknown to the Musicbrainz server. For that, Pinkytagger uses several algorithms like fault-tolerant string comparison, length comparison etc.

 Pinky-Tagger 2.2.2

Free to download
