: [[Jaikoz]] is a cross platform tagger written in Java enabling you to use it on Windows, UNIX and Mac OS X. It has been designed for managing large music collections. It uses a spreadsheet view to allow you to edit information quickly and provides many auto-matching and auto-formatting tasks that do much of the work for you. Jaikoz currently supports tagging of MP3 files with all versions of ID3; other formats will be added in the future.
  
[[Classic Tagger]] was our first tagger that supported TRM-based acoustic fingerprinting, WAV, MP3, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis formats. This tagger is track oriented, has limited UNICODE support and runs on Windows only. This version is no longer supported, and no active development or bug fixes are being made on it. As of May 2011, it stopped working completely. Users should migrate to Picard or one of the other options on this list.
