How to edit tags of a single flac file with dBpoweramp

dBpoweramp is a popular and powerful audio converter and editor that supports a wide range of formats, including flac. One of its features is the ability to edit the metadata tags of audio files, such as artist, album, genre, year, etc. Editing tags can help you organize your music library, find songs easily, and display information on various devices and players.

However, some users may encounter difficulties when trying to edit the tags of a single flac file with dBpoweramp. This article will explain how to do it in a few simple steps.

The first thing you need to do is to make sure you have the right version of dBpoweramp installed on your computer. There are different versions of dBpoweramp, such as Power Pack, Music Converter, and Reference. To edit tags of a single file, you need the Reference version, which is the most advanced and feature-rich one.

If you already have the Reference version, you can skip this step. If you are not sure which version you have, you can check it by opening dBpoweramp Configuration and looking at the title bar. It should say “dBpoweramp Reference”.

If you have a different version, you need to uninstall it and install the Reference version. You can download the Reference version from the official website. You will need a valid license key to activate it. If you have already purchased dBpoweramp, you can retrieve your license key from the registration page.

Step 2: Right-click on the flac file and choose Edit ID Tags

Once you have the Reference version installed, you can edit the tags of a single flac file by simply right-clicking on it and choosing “Edit ID Tags” from the context menu. This will open the dBpoweramp Tag Editor window, where you can see and modify the existing tags of the file.

You can also select multiple files and edit their tags at once, if they have common tags. For example, if you want to edit the tags of all the songs in an album, you can select them all and right-click on any of them, then choose “Edit ID Tags”. The tag editor will show the tags that are the same for all the selected files, and the ones that are different will be marked as ““. You can change the common tags for all the files, or use the arrows on the top left to edit the individual files.

Step 3: Edit the tags as you wish and save the changes

The tag editor window will show you various fields that you can edit, such as Title, Artist, Album, Genre, Year, Track, etc. You can type in the values that you want, or use the drop-down menus to choose from predefined options. You can also add or delete fields by using the buttons on the bottom right.

Some fields, such as Album Art, Lyrics, and Comments, will open a separate window when you click on them. You can use these windows to add, remove, or edit the corresponding information. For example, you can add album art by browsing your computer or the internet, or by dragging and dropping an image file. You can also resize or export the album art as a folder.jpg file.

When you are done editing the tags, you can save the changes by clicking on the “OK” button on the bottom left. The tag editor will close and the changes will be applied to the file (or files) that you selected. You can verify the changes by right-clicking on the file again and choosing “Properties”, then looking at the “Details” tab.


Editing tags of a single flac file with dBpoweramp is easy and convenient, as long as you have the Reference version of the software. You can access the tag editor by right-clicking on the file and choosing “Edit ID Tags” from the context menu. You can then modify the tags as you wish and save the changes. You can also edit multiple files at once, if they have common tags. Editing tags can help you manage your music collection and enjoy it better.
