I know that there are lots of programs that can rename and sort mp3 after ID3 tag. Mp3 software.
BUT, is there a program that can recognize them if the mp3 has no ID3 tag and is named "track1.mp3"?
I am looking for something that works similar to SoundHound or Shazam (analyze mp3 after the song) for Windows, that can rename and tag all my songs. Or at least most of them.
I need a free program to do this.
After trying lots of software, the only one I found that could identify (even some foreign language) songs was MusicBee
I use beets to organize my music library. It is completely free and open source, and should work on Windows as long as you have python installed.
It can grab the metadata from the Musicbrainz database, and can identify the song by its "acoustic fingerprint", similar to how SoundHound or Shazam does it, or using the filename or existing partial metadata.
It also has a web interface that you can use to browse your music library and play songs on any html5 capable browser.
It also supports plugins, so almost anything is possible, such as transcoding files into different formats, checking your library for duplicate tracks, and creating Spotify playlists. See here for more.
Next edit your configuration file. Tell it the directory of your existing music, and the library file location e.g.
Mp3 search engine
directory: ~/music library:
Next install the dependencies for the Acoustid plugin (it finds the acoustic fingerprint)
Download Chromaprint. Remember to add the fpcalc binary to your PATH environment variable. ( See here )
Optionally, help the Acoustid database by submitting your music fingerprints
Next import the files using
on the commandline and follow the prompts. Note this is a very long and interactive process, so make sure you have some time set aside. Beets and the chromaprint plugin should edit the metadata on the files.
Simply select all the files in the library->Right click menu->Auto-tag by track->Identify track and update tags.
Now you can choose to update files based on digital sound signature or not, update blank field only or all etc
Mp3tagMp3tag is a good choice if you prefer to have a user interface with a normal windows menu. Mp3tag has the advantage of a simple and clean design with a powerful and yet easy-to-use tool to edit tags of MP3 files.
Basic tags are shown in a customizable front panel. Extended tags are shown in a separate window for all existing tags stored in your MP3 files. If a tag for lyrics or other info does not exist, it can be added, or if a tag is repeated, it can be removed easily.
Mp3tag allows you to rename files based on the tag information, import or export tag information and create playlists.
It supports online Amazon, freedb, MusicBrainz and other database look-ups, allowing you to auto tag and embed multiple images for album covers
It also has a powerful Web Sources Framework, allowing you to get album info from additional online databases. The latest web sources are available from Mp3tag Forums at Web Sources Archive. You can download the ones you need, and extract them to your Mp3tag data folder in order to gain access to more online databases for auto tagging.
I used this one a year or two ago, to do what you are trying to do and it worked.
MusicBrainz PicardMusicBrainz Picard runs on multi platforms and adopts a new tagging concept that is album oriented, as opposed to tracks or files oriented tagging.
It identifies track information by comparing a unique digital thumbprint to the information in the MusicBrainz database
. Once the tracks are best matched, you can save their respective tag information into selected MP3 files. How To Tag Files With Picard is a helpful guide for a quick start.
As with Mp3tag, checking the details of a selected file evokes a list of all existing tags, including lyrics, which you can then edit. If a tag doesn't currently exist, you can always add it.

But in the version under review, cover art edits aren't possible except by updating from online databases.
SongKong is designed to identify and rename music files, and it can recognize them if the audio has no ID3 tag and is named "track1.mp3" using Acoustic Fingerprinting
It can be used on a collection of any size, and runs without requiring any other software on OSX and Windows.
It is not free, but you can use the free trial to generate a html report showing exactly what every song has been matched, you could then use this to manually edit your tags or buy the software and have it do it for you.
This video shows the matching process in action
