|Abbreviate artist-sort||Abbreviate Artist-Sort and Album-Artist-Sort Tags. e.g. "Vivaldi, Antonio" becomes "Vivaldi, A." This is particularly useful for classical albums that can have a long list of artists. %artistsort% is abbreviated into %_artistsort_abbrev% and %albumartistsort% is abbreviated into %_albumartistsort_abbrev%.||Sophist|
|AcousticBrainz Mood-Genre||Uses AcousticBrainz for mood and genre. WARNING: Experimental plugin. All guarantees voided by use.||Andrew Cook, Sambhav Kothari|
|AcousticBrainz Tonal-Rhythm||Add's the following tags:
Key (in ID3v2.3 format) Beats Per Minute (BPM) from the AcousticBrainz database.
|Sophist, Sambhav Kothari|
|Add Album Column||Add the Album column to the main window panel. WARNING: This plugin cannot be disabled. See: https://github.com/metabrainz/picard-plugins/pull/195||Evandro Coan|
|Add Cluster As Release||Adds a plugin context menu option to clusters and single files to help you quickly add them as releases or standalone recordings to the MusicBrainz database via the website by pre-populating artists, track names and times.||Frederik "Freso" S. Olesen, Lukáš Lalinský, Philip Jägenstedt|
|Additional Artists Variables||This plugin provides specialized album and track variables for use in naming scripts. It is based on the "Album Artist Extension" plugin, but expands the functionality to also include track artists. Note that it cannot be used as a direct drop-in replacement for the "Album Artist Extension" plugin because the variables are provided with different names. This will require changes to existing scripts if switching to this plugin.
Please see the user guide on GitHub for more information.
|Bob Swift (rdswift)|
|Album Artist Website||Add's the album artist(s) Official Homepage(s) (if they are defined in the MusicBrainz database).||Sophist, Sambhav Kothari|
|AlbumArtist Extension||This plugin provides standardized, credited and sorted artist information for the album artist. This is useful when your tagging or renaming scripts require both the standardized artist name and the credited artist name, or more detailed information about the album artists.
The information is provided in the following variables: _aaeStdAlbumArtists = The standardized version of the album artists. _aaeCredAlbumArtists = The credited version of the album artists. _aaeSortAlbumArtists = The sorted version of the album artists. _aaeStdPrimaryAlbumArtist = The standardized version of the first (primary) album artist. _aaeCredPrimaryAlbumArtist = The credited version of the first (primary) album artist. _aaeSortPrimaryAlbumArtist = The sorted version of the first (primary) album artist. _aaeAlbumArtistCount = The number of artists comprising the album artist. PLEASE NOTE: Tagger scripts are required to make use of these hidden variables.

|BPM Analyzer||Calculate BPM for selected files and albums. Linux only version with dependancy on Aubio and Numpy||Len Joubert, Sambhav Kothari, Philipp Wolfer|
|Classic Disc Numbers||Moves disc numbers and subtitles from the separate tags to album titles.||Lukas Lalinsky|
|Classical Extras||Classical Extras provides tagging enhancements for Picard and, in particular, utilises MusicBrainz’s hierarchy of works to provide work/movement tags. All options are set through a user interface in Picard options->plugins. This interface provides separate sections to enhance artist/performer tags, works and parts, genres and also allows for a generalised "tag mapping" (simple scripting). While it is designed to cater for the complexities of classical music tagging, it may also be useful for other music which has more than just basic song/artist/album data.
The options screen provides five tabs for users to control the tags produced:
1. Artists: Options as to whether artist tags will contain standard MB names, aliases or as-credited names. Ability to include and annotate names for specialist roles (chorus master, arranger, lyricist etc.). Ability to read lyrics tags on the file which has been loaded and assign them to track and album levels if required. (Note: Picard will not normally process incoming file tags).
2. Works and parts: The plugin will build a hierarchy of works and parts (e.g. Work -> Part -> Movement or Opera -> Act -> Number) based on the works in MusicBrainz's database. These can then be displayed in tags in a variety of ways according to user preferences. Furthermore partial recordings, medleys, arrangements and collections of works are all handled according to user choices. There is a processing overhead for this at present because MusicBrainz limits look-ups to one per second.
3. Genres etc.: Options are available to customise the source and display of information relating to genres, instruments, keys, work dates and periods. Additional capabilities are provided for users of Muso (or others who provide the relevant XML files) to use pre-existing databases of classical genres, classical composers and classical periods.
4. Tag mapping: in some ways, this is a simple substitute for some of Picard's scripting capability. The main advantage is that the plugin will remember what tag mapping you use for each release (or even track).
5. Advanced: Various options to control the detailed processing of the above.
All user options can be saved on a per-album (or even per-track) basis so that tweaks can be used to deal with inconsistencies in the MusicBrainz data (e.g. include English titles from the track listing where the MusicBrainz works are in the composer's language and/or script). Also existing file tags can be processed (not possible in native Picard).
See the readme file on GitHub here for full details.
|Compatible TXXX frames||This plugin improves the compatibility of ID3 tags by using only a single value for TXXX frames. Multiple value TXXX frames technically don't comply with the ID3 specification.||Tungol|
|Copy Cluster to Clipboard||Exports a cluster's tracks to the clipboard, so it can be copied into the tracklist field on MusicBrainz||Michael Elsdörfer, Sambhav Kothari|
|Decode Cyrillic||This plugin helps you quickly convert mis-encoded cyrillic Windows-1251 tags to proper UTF-8 encoded strings. If your track/album names look something like "Àëèñà â ñò›àíå ÷óäåñ", run this plugin from the context menu before running the "Lookup" or "Scan" tools||aeontech|
|Disc Numbers||Moves disc numbers and subtitles from album titles to separate tags. For example:
"Aerial (disc 1: A Sea of Honey)" album = "Aerial" discnumber = "1" discsubtitle = "A Sea of Honey"
|fanart.tv cover art||Use cover art from fanart.tv. To use this plugin you have to register a personal API key on https://fanart.tv/get-an-api-key/||Philipp Wolfer, Sambhav Kothari|
|Feat. Artists in Titles||Move "feat." from artist names to album and track titles. Match is case insensitive.||Lukas Lalinsky, Michael Wiencek, Bryan Toth, JeromyNix (NobahdiAtoll)|
|Feat. Artists Removed||Removes feat. artists from track titles. Substitution is case insensitive.||Lukas Lalinsky, Bryan Toth|
|Fix Track Numbers||Fix the track numbers in a cluster by either using the track titles (1) or sequential order (2).
The title should contain something like "#-#" (number dash number) and be unique. All non-numbers and non-dashes will be removed when comparing the titles. This is especially useful for Language Audio Lessons, like this: - Title: "Unit 1 - Lesson 10" For example, take the following titles and track numbers: - Title: "Unit 1 - Lesson 1" - Track #1 - Title: "Unit 1 - Lesson 2" - Track #1 - Title: "Unit 2 - Lesson 10" - Track #2 - Title: "Unit 2 - Lesson 1" - Track #2 The track numbers will be changed to: 1, 2, 4, 3 The 3rd one will be changed to Track #4 because Lesson 1 < Lesson 10. The titles will remain unchanged. The track numbers will be set based on the sequential order they appear within the cluster. How to use: Cluster a group of files Right click on the cluster Then click one: Plugins => Fix track numbers using titles Plugins => Fix track numbers using sequence

|Format Performer Tags||This plugin provides options with respect to the formatting of performer tags. It has been developed using the 'Standardise Performers' plugin by Sophist as the basis for retrieving and processing the performer data for each of the tracks. The format of the resulting tags can be customized in the option settings page.||Bob Swift (rdswift), Philipp Wolfer|
|Generate Cuesheet||Generate cuesheet (.cue file) from an album.||Lukáš Lalinský, Sambhav Kothari|
|Generate M3U playlist||Generate an Extended M3U playlist (.m3u8 file, UTF8 encoded text). Relative pathnames are used where audio files are in the same directory as the playlist, otherwise absolute (full) pathnames are used.||Francis Chin, Sambhav Kothari|
|Haiku BFS Attributes||Save and load metadata to/from Haiku BFS attributes.||Philipp Wolfer|
|Hyphen unicode||Replaces unicode character HYPHEN (U+2010) [0xE2 0x80 0x90] with typographically identical HYPHEN-MINUS (U+002D) [0x2D] for fonts that do not support HYPHEN and to prevent visually duplicate filenames differentiated only by their hyphens. Unicode duplicated hyphen from ASCII as an unambiguous way to designate a hyphen from a minus whilst still being typographically indentical. Since text processing on music tags is rare so choice is purely pedantic esepcially as keyboards only have HYPHEN-MINUS. Replaces character on "album", "title", "artist", "artists", "artistsort", "albumartist", "albumartists" and "albumartistsort" tags.||Alan Swanson|
|Instruments||Adds a multi-valued tag of all the instruments (including vocals), for use in scripts.||David Mandelberg|
|Keep tags||Adds a $keep() function to delete all tags except the ones that you want. Tags beginning with `musicbrainz_` are kept automatically, as are tags beginning with `_`.||Wieland Hoffmann|
|Last.fm||Use tags from Last.fm as genre.||Lukáš Lalinský, Philipp Wolfer|
|Load as non-album track||Allows loading selected tracks as non-album tracks. Useful for tagging single tracks where you do not care about the album.||Philipp Wolfer|

|No release||Do not store specific release information in releases of unknown origin.||Johannes Weißl, Philipp Wolfer|
|Non-ASCII Equivalents||Replaces accented and otherwise non-ASCII characters with a somewhat equivalent version of their ASCII counterparts. This allows old devices to be able to display song artists and titles somewhat correctly, instead of displaying weird or blank symbols. It's an attempt to do a little better than Musicbrainz's native "Replace non-ASCII characters" option. Currently replaces characters on "album", "artist", and "title" tags.||Anderson Mesquita|
|Padded disc and tracknumbers||Adds padded disc- and tracknumbers so the length of all disc- and tracknumbers is the same. They are stored in the `_paddedtracknumber` and `_paddeddiscnumber` tags.||Wieland Hoffmann|
|Paper CD case||Description||Philipp Wolfer, Sambhav Kothari|
|Re-order sides of a release||Split mediums and re-order sides to match side order rather than medium order. E.g., if a release has two mediums with track numbers A1, A2, ..., D1, D2, ... and B1, B2, ..., C1, C2, ..., this plugin will split the release into four mediums and reorder the new mediums so that the track numbers are A1, A2, ..., B1, B2, ..., C1, C2, ..., D1, D2, ... This is primarily intended to make vinyl records designed for record changers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Record_changer#Automatic_sequencing) play in the correct order.||David Mandelberg, Sambhav Kothari|
|Release Type||Appends information to EPs and Singles||Elliot Chance|
|Remove Perfect Albums||Remove all perfectly matched albums from the selection.||ichneumon, hrglgrmpf|
|Replace Forbidden Symbols||etc. with a similar UNICODE version. Currently replaces characters on "album", "artist", "title", "albumartist", "releasetype", "label" tags. Also add $replace_forbidden() function for Tagger. Example: $set(composer,$script_forbidden(%composer%))||Alex Rustler|

|Smart Title Case||Capitalize First Character In Every Word Of Album/Track Title/Artist.
Leaves words containing embedded uppercase as-is i.e. USA or DoA. For Artist/AlbumArtist, title cases only artists not join phrases e.g. The Beatles feat. The Who.
|Sophist based on an earlier plugin by Javier Kohen|
|Sort Multi-Value Tags||This plugin sorts multi-value tags e.g. Performers alphabetically.
Note: Some multi-value tags are excluded for the following reasons: Sequence is important e.g. Artists The sequence of one tag is linked to the sequence of another e.g. Label and Catalogue number.
|Soundtrack||Sets the albumartist to "Soundtrack" if releasetype is a soundtrack.||Samir Benmendil|
|Standardise Feat.||Standardises "featuring" join phrases for artists to "feat."||Sambhav Kothari|
|Standardise Performers||Splits multi-instrument performer tags into single instruments and combines names so e.g. (from 10cc by 10cc track 1):
Performer [acoustic guitar, bass, dobro, electric guitar and tambourine]: Graham Gouldman Performer [acoustic guitar, electric guitar, grand piano and synthesizer]: Lol Creme Performer [electric guitar, moog and slide guitar]: Eric Stewart becomes: Performer [acoustic guitar]: Graham Gouldman; Lol Creme Performer [bass]: Graham Gouldman Performer [dobro]: Graham Gouldman Performer [electric guitar]: Eric Stewart; Graham Gouldman; Lol Creme Performer [grand piano]: Lol Creme Performer [moog]: Eric Stewart Performer [slide guitar]: Eric Stewart Performer [synthesizer]: Lol Creme Performer [tambourine]: Graham Gouldman
|Tango.info Adapter||Load genre, date and vocalist tags from the online database tango.info.
This plugin uses web scraping, but only once per album. In so doing it does not cause unnecessary server load for either MusicBrainz.org or tango.info
