As I use it to listen and manage my music collection, I rate the foobar2000
audio player with a recent lame.exe for ease of use. It can perform DSP
chain processing (EQ, ReplayGain, etc) or just transcode straight - as well
as things like filename transforms. It's a very competent audio file
manager. Just drop files into a playlist, select one or more, right-click
and use the convert menu.
I tend to use Mp3Tag (the author's capitalisation, not mine) for more
complex tagging of audio files.
For command-line batch processing, just use ffmpeg - you should already
have it if get_iplayer is installed. A simple 'for' loop in a batch file
(various examples available online) will let you transcode an unlimited
amount of files in a folder very efficiently.
