KREFELD, GERMANY (September 7th, 2004) — three-2-one GmbH is proud to
announce the release of MP3 ID3X 3.0.1 for Mac.

MP3 ID3X (formerly known as ID3X) is the editor for easy manipulation of
“ID3 tag” information in MP3 music files. “ID3 tags” are used to store
title, artist and other information in MP3 files which can then be
displayed in your favorite MP3 player application.

MP3 ID3X still has all of the functionality of ID3X, supporting major tag
formats, tagging by file or group of files and featuring useful batch

The version published today adds full Unicode compatibility, user
configurable search strings for searching websites and additional tag
fields. Along many other improvements and bug fixes, support for
downloading lyrics from was greatly enhanced. Last but
not least MP3 ID3X features much faster editing. See below for a detailed
list of changes in this version.

Joerg Pressel, author of MP3 ID3X: “Editing tag information in MP3 has
never been easier, because in contrast to competing products, workflow is
transparent and the user is not overwhelmed by a cluttered user interface.
Advanced users can use sophisticated batch functions or write scripts to
extend MP3 ID3X to their needs.”

System requirements:

MP3 ID3X is a Carbon app and runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later and OS 9.x.


MP3 ID3X is shareware, a single license is $18 (orders from the EU include
16% VAT). It is being distributed with the help of ShareIt!. Existing users
are entitled for a free update.
