  1. Re: Another Tagging for Dummies Qu .... Multi-work Albums

    Iím using iOS Music, iPeng and fooBar 2000, spending on situation. :(. On iPhone and iPad.
    Is that tag really just for Apple or is it generally recognised?
  2. Another Tagging for Dummies Qu .... Multi-work Albums

    Some CD Albums have two or more works on them, eg, Beethoven's 6th & 8th Symphonies.

    Im wondering what is the best practice here ... treat as a single album, or split into two 'logical' albums....

    Ive been wondering about some of this stuff too.

    Re: Style & Mood Tags

    Thanks for all this. I guess I'll have to check the various tag editors etc to see if they only alter the cnaged fields vs writing the whole set back to the file. Ripping is easy enough to get...

    Re: Playlists (m3u) docs & info

    Thanks, Spoon.
    So I guess I need to ask Jeorg if iPeng really uses the url for disc tracks (ie can I ignore it).

    Managing Duplicates

    Is there a way to have DeDupe create a file listing the duplicates? The file should contain path, filename, artist, album, track name, bit rate, encoding ... maybe more but that will get started.

    Yes it was 3 right out of 4 tries. Obviously very small sample.
    Home-made V0 vs iMatch - what you say makes sense and is where I was headed.
