MusicBrainz Picard is a cross-platform software application that is written in Python. It can be described as the official tagger of MusicBrainz i.e. it is mainly used for tagging, identifying, and organizing digital audio recordings. It is a free and open-source application.

Picard will support most of the audio file formats and they use audio fingerprints such as PUIDs, AcoustIDs etc. It has got remarkable Unicode support.

Picard will identify the audio recordings and CDs by comparing the records in the database with the acoustic fingerprints. Once it is identified, Picard can add details about the audio files such as the title of the album, artist name, date of release, and the record label. Picard can also add details about the instruments used and other artists in the recordings. Picard uses an album-oriented approach while tagging information. Once tagging is done, we will be having the correct album information. Each audio file is matched with its metadata correctly by Picard while identifying. If we want to rename the files, we can do it manually also. 

Supports most of the audio file formats

  • Matching the metadata and saving the information of audio files.
  • Comparing the fingerprint with the recordings database.
  • Open-source and free software application.
  • Organizing the audio files according to the information.
  • Picard supports most of the Audio file formats.
If you need to tag music, then MusicBrainz by Picard is for you. It was for me! I love that its written in python making it easier to use. The ID implementation to allow me to put a digital fingerprint on my work is out of this world. It supports any type of audio file you could think of. Its also open source so it is constantly getting better. I could not recommend it more!
