MusicBrainz Picard is slightly different from traditional MP3 tag cleaners and editors as it has a more album-oriented approach to tagging as compared to a track-centric approach. The software supports a number of audio formats including MP3, OGG, MP4, Vorbis, WMA, FLAC and many others. The software has its own MusicBrainz Picard database and once you import your music library to the software, it would automatically start a scan to mark out songs and albums whose tags need editing. The software uses different color flags to show how much editing is required for a file: color green means this one requires the least and color red means this one requires the most. The software is free and is an open-source utility and therefore, you can edit its script a bit as well to make the software suit your needs.
