Easiest way to bulk update just one ID3 tag value

If I wanted to update all of the files currently in MP3 to change just one tag to a specific value (which will always be the same), what is the easiest way to do that?

I basically want to have the same comment added ("Vinyl Recording") in all files, but for every other tag to remain.


Select all files.
Enter the text in the tag panel in the comment field and save the modification.

Ah, sorry, I know I could do that, but I am trying to automate a little more, so I was thinking something along the lines of an action, and the value is hard-coded in that action so I don't have to type it, and can be sure that it's consistently applied.

You still have to select the files.

Create an action of the type "Format tag field" for COMMENT
Format string: Vinyl Recording

I looked at this and completely mis-read what was meant by 'Format', didn't realise it was to apply/add tags (and how to format it). Makes sense. Thanks
