AudioShell Editor's Review
Not every PC user has similar needs. Majority of computer users are content with using media player and converter apps for their media consumption needs. However, there are those audiophiles who are particular about collecting and organizing audio files with precision. For such users, tagging their music files becomes important. If you are among them, using a tag editor like AudioShell can be beneficial.
Made by SoftPointer, AudioShell is a tag editor with small footprint that integrates in context menu of Windows Explorer. It offers support for widely used audio formats like MP3, MP4 and WMA etc. The app requires just 2MB space and runs on Windows versions starting from Windows 98. However, latest windows versions are not supported officially. It is multilingual app and along with English supports languages like French, Czech and Spanish. It is a freeware and has no restrictions on usage as such.
AudioShell performs almost flawlessly without causing any system slowdown. Neither does it display any error message or crashes during usage. The app is simple to use and you can find instructions in the provided Readme file. After installing the app, you can obtain audio file information including track number, album, artist and genre just by hovering the mouse cursor over each file. When you right click on an audio file, and click on properties subsequently, the AudioShell interface pops up. There are 2 sections- the first one is non editable, meant for displaying file information. The other section is Tag editor where you can add cover art, change genre and title etc.
With AudioShell, you get spared from spending long hours arranging the ID3 details of your audio files. First time users should go through the Readme file for ease of usage.
