It's free software so there is no "demo" version, if your files are M4A (as opposed to MP3) then ID3V1 tags don't apply and hence may be greyed out.

For further reading  on ID3V1 (tag1) and ID3V2 (tag2)

iTunes (now called "Music") also tags multiple tracks. You just select the range of tracks you want.

For those who haven't heard of "Doug's AppleScripts" it's well worth checking out. Since his scripts are based on Apple-specific "AppleScript" code, it only works on Macs. But he has 590 scripts (!) for an unbelievable array of tagging & organization tasks. For hardcore music collectors, I could imagine getting a Mac just to use Doug's AppleScripts. I think his scripts represent the most wide-ranging & powerful music management tools anywhere:

I've tried lots of Mac tag editors & the one I settled on was YATE https://2manyrobots.com/yate/

It can do the simple stuff, mass tag editing is fairly straight forward & it has the standard discogs feature, but it can also perform complex scripted tasks as well, if that's your thing.
The guy who built it is fairly active on his forum & was a great help to me when I was trying to sort through the mess a failing hard drive had made, he made me a custom script to run in YATE to auto sort through hundreds of music files.

I only use iTune/Music when I have to tbh. The complete mess that is now Books, which has led to my audiobook library being unrecoverable has made me completely distrust Apple.
