Any gems or methods for reading and writing meta tags of mp3 files?

If I wanted to have a site similar to bandcamp where I could upload MP3 tracks are there any gems or recommended ways to check the audio quality, and read/write meta tags to the files?

If you are looking for reading and writing meta tags of mp3 files, you can use use ExifTool. It's useful for me.
