Renaming .mp3 .aac Song filenames


I have a bunch of MP3’s /. AAC’s that have unsatisfactory file names that I would like to update.

I know that I can manually rename each of the file names in the finder, however I’m wondering if there is a better way.

I thought in previous versions of iTunes there was a setting that if you updated the title in iTunes/ Music then there was a way that it could automatically rename the file name in the background.

I do not seem to see this feature anymore.

I am wondering if there is an app that can help with this MP3 file renaming issue?

Any help would be appreciated – Dave

update - I found this - seems ok - open to other suggestions

Use Mp3tag to rename the files based on tags?


This is exactly what I do. Metadatics is another tag editor that will rename files based on tags if Mp3tag doesn’t appeal.

I’ve used both Tag Editor and Tag Editor Lite, but prefer Mp3tag and Metadatics.

Thanks folks for the suggestions.

Kid3 (free) and rename based on the tags.
