Remove specific tags?

I’d like to remove specific tags on import, e.g. ffprobe shows a tag called “mp3gain_minmax”, which should be removed from files. Also beets adds a tag called “iTunNORM” which I do not want.
Is this possible?


Hello! Start out with the scrub plugin, which removes fields that beets does not support. You may also be interested in the zero plugin that automatically deletes values from fields it does support.

Thanks! I already had a look at the scrub plugin but probably I got the description wrong: my impression was that it will remove all tags, e.g. comment tags that I’ve filled manually, too.

OK, I’ve tried and the problem with scrub is:

  • it also removes some of my replaygain tags, that loudgain has added (REPLAYGAIN_REFERENCE_LOUDNESS, REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_RANGE, REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_RANGE)
  • it does not remove the “iTunNORM” tag. Not sure if I can remove this one via the zero plugin
