Overview

The MusicBrainz Classic Tagger application allows you to automatically look up the tracks in your music collection and then write clean metadata tags (ID3 tags or Vorbis comment fields) to your files. As you tag the files in your collection that MusicBrainz didn't recognize, you submit the acoustic fingerprints (TRM IDs) of your files back to the server. Submitting acoustic fingerprints will allow MusicBrainz to automatically identify these tracks in the future, so that other people using the Tagger can benefit from the work you have done. Please note that the TRM server does not scale very well, it will be replaced during 2006 with the MusicDNS PUID fingerprinting system. We will maintain TRM support, until the new system performs equal or better than the old system, then it will be moved out of service.

As the community uses the Tagger application, more and more files will be automatically recognized. Since the system could not handle the amount TRM IDs being submitted, we have been pruning the TRM database in regular intervals to be able to keep the server running, so some files which initially had TRM Ids might not be recognized, sorry for that. Please consider downloading the next-generation cross-platform (Picard Download) and create fingerprints using the new technology. You may also want to take a look at our statistics page to see how many TRM IDs/PUIDs we've been collecting recently.
