Puddletag is a FOSS metadata editor for many audio file formats very similar to Mp3tag. Unlike most taggers for GNU/Linux, it uses a spreadsheet-like layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable.

It includes support for the following audio formats: AAC, FLAC, APE, MP3, MPEG-4 (mp4/m4a/m4b/iTunes compatible), MPC, OGG, OptimFROG OFR, OFS, SPX, TAK, TTA, WMA, WV.
