Ex Falso is a free and open source, cross-platform audio tag editor[4] and library organizer.[5] It is a user interface sharing the same backend software as Quod Libet, minus the ability to play music. It is developed by the same software team responsible for Quod Libet.[1]

Tag editing Features[edit]

  • Complete Unicode support
  • Changes to multiple files at once, even if files are in different formats
  • Ability to tag files based on filenames with fully configurable formats
  • Customizable renaming of files based on their tags and a user-supplied format

  • Fast track renumbering
  • Add / edit bookmarks within files
