    Re: Custome fields in AssetUPNP

    You are correct, and also ALBUMSORT works. The latter must be a change since R7 (although it's not mentioned in the version changes). And I realise that ALBUMARTISTSORT probably has been supported...

    Re: Custome fields in AssetUPNP

    I wouldn't use the existing variants of the sorting tags for custom purposes, cause you never know what apps you might use in the future. And who knows, Asset might even start supporting...

    Re: Custome fields in AssetUPNP

    That depends on the app. I use ALBUM ARTIST with a space because it's the original standard (for Vorbis comments at least) which Asset always supported. Some players broke the standard and started to...
  4. Re: ID TAG UPDATE missing in BATCH CONVERTER (Windows_10 Ver. 16.6)

    I use ALBUM SORT for that too. I sort compilations alphabetically and regular albums chronologically, but I almost never list them together so not a problem with the different sorting criteria.
  5. Re: ID TAG UPDATE missing in BATCH CONVERTER (Windows_10 Ver. 16.6)

    Asset R7 (which I use) can too, but when you go OCD you still need ALBUM SORT for full date sorting rather than just year (e.g. some Beatles & Rolling Stones albums were from the same year). And when...
  6. Re: ID TAG UPDATE missing in BATCH CONVERTER (Windows_10 Ver. 16.6)

    I like the simple approach too as it feels more natural. Even back in the LP days I sorted after first name. When I read "John Lennon" on the album cover it felt awkward to put it behind "L". Simple...

    That looks promising, Spoon. I'm on vacation but will certainly try it when I get home.

    Re: Different Artwork for Compilation Albums.

    Yes that would be somewhat messy. It would suit much better with a "ALBUM MASTER TITLE" concept with a grouping level above album. But I think if Asset would support DISCSUBTITLE I would be using it...

    Thanks for the great explanation! Those are neat features which would be nice to have in AssetUPnP.

    Out of curiosity, could you describe what can be accomplished with those tags please? I don't think they are supported by AssetUPnP. For example, could any of them be used for grouping multiple...

    Re: Various Artists on Compilation Albums

    COLLECTION=1 would be a custom tag, but I assume you are aware that the standard is COMPILATION=1

    Also, don't you populate ALBUM ARTIST? Browsing by that won't include the artists on compilations...

    It does, I just did a hex check of a flac file tagged by music converter.

    Re: Non alphanumeric character handling

    Yes, and it's been said above. But then you'd have to tag specifically for Asset which wouldn't conform with your other applications.

    My point was a workaround that leaves the ALBUM tag intact.

    Re: Non alphanumeric character handling

    If this doesn't resolve for a while, you could try another workaround without touching the ALBUM tag.

    In Asset's Rename List, add the line
    album:=(Unknown Album):==

    Then restart & refresh...

    Re: Non alphanumeric character handling

    I think that Asset doesn't accept "=" as the very first character in a tag and will consequently delete it. So if "=" is the only character, the tag will be treated as absent. At least this is how it...

    Re: Favorites

    Not sure if you by "mark" refer to tagging your files?

    If so you can use tagging software to create your own custom tag FAVOURITES and set it up accordingly in Asset.

    Or you could hi-jack a...

    Re: Support of Gracenote DB

    Gracenote aim for monopoly. Years ago they ripped the community off CDDB when they bought and commercialized it. Still demanding to be exclusive to permit a license. I say boycott that scam business.

    That's a pity. While I understand that XP is old, it's still the best Windows version when you need a lightweight OS for an offline server. I run Asset on a somewhat older laptop and Vista/7/8/10 are...

    Re: Sorting by Album release Oldest first

    You have 2 options:

    Either use ALBUM SORT and tag e.g. "1969 - Abbey Road". Note the space between ALBUM and SORT. Also set the handling of sorting tags in the configuration.

    Or try the new R7...

    Hi GBrown! Were you using Mp3tag from scratch, not just to make the edit? Mp3tag writes TPE2 for AlbumArtist, and that as well as Album Artist works in R7.
