The GodFather 0.88 / 0.89 Beta
Batch rename of files using Tag/Filename/Folder name/Audio file information
One software solution designed to help you handle audio files and rename them on the go is The GodFather. It processes not only file names but also tags and the associated information.
The interface is less attractive and more practical, but even so it can take a while to get used to it due to the way features are organized in the main window. There are many buttons on several rows, so you should take things one at a time to understand what each of them does.
Nevertheless, the program comes with everything you'd ever need when working with audio files, so the renaming or file information editing is just a matter of minutes.
Double clicking a given field allows you edit the information on the fly, but full tag editors are always accessible via the right-click.
The GodFather is indeed a very advanced software solution that supports many important things, be them ID3v1 & ID3v tags, Ogg Vorbis comments or online cover art downloaders. This tool even has a duplicate finding function you can use to get rid of clones on the fly.
A nice feature of this program is that it has the ability to quickly encode batches of audio files into MP3, OGG or MPC formats as well as decode any selected track and turn it on the spot into WAV.
To sum things up, it's safe to say that from The GodFather you certainly get a lot of help when it comes to editing multiple tags or converting several music files at once. It brings to the table many useful features and if you manage to get along with the GUI, everything should work smoothly.
