Edit Metadata Tags dialog window

Perhaps I am missing something. When exporting my project the dialog window that opens for adding information such as Artist Name, Track title etc. I know I can add additional tags such as Location or anything I need. I can save the new form and reopen later and edit as needed.

However I can find no way to change/remove the original tags. I am working on Bird Songs and Calls etc. Artist Name, Track Title, Genre etc are a distraction and not wanted. Is there a way to totally customize this? Meaning remove those Tags and replace with ones I need? Or perhaps a totally blank dialog that I can customize and save?



The standard tag names cannot be removed from the Metadata Editor. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ID3#ID3v1_and_ID3v1.1[5](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ID3#ID3v1_and_ID3v1.1[5)]

“Genre” is one of the standard tags that is defined for most audio formats. If you don’t want a Genre tag, just leave that tag value empty.
If there is already a Genre tag value, you remove it by selecting the tag value, then click the “Remove” button.

There are different standards for different formats. MP3 uses [u]ID3 Tags[/u] (and there a few different versions/revisions of the ID3 standard). FLAC uses [u]Vorbis Comments[/u]. There is no real standard for WAV files.

Your media player software is looking for the standard tags so it won’t read anything that’s custom or non-standard.
