    Re: Custom Naming

    You can obviously quickly change the Genre tag, if / when manufacturers realise / care about what has been happening for the last twenty years! Some players and apps are very good, some simply basic...

    Re: Custom Naming

    This is to my mind the reasons why the Genre tag is so personal wuth the nature of your collection being completely different to mine. You have (as usual) explained very eloquently why one size...

    I did put Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture as a David Bowie album, but it is a Bowie album.

    My wife has hundreds of Compilation albums, so OST works very well in keeping soundtracks together....

    Thank you for the strings and I hope you get as much enjoyment from the coding as you have the coffee and jazz!

    To be honest I've used the two strings for five years, so reducing them down to one...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    For me purely personal preference, instead of going into a folder named Various Artists, it goes into one named Compilations, nothing else is changed. I altered it when I was mucking around with...

    The fact that you use UAPP, I would take as read that the app is very good.

    A quick follow up to some of your questions and an explanation as to why I use Sort tags.

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I started using Artist - Beatles, The and quickly decided I simply didn't like either Beatles, The or Beatles.

    The band name is The Beatles.

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I believe this is a very deliberate choice. There are folders A, B, C so Album Artist - Beatles, The / Bowie, David both go into the B folder, but the filename and Artist metadata read The Beatles /...

    Mp3tag uses the upper case ARTIST SORT, even if you have used Artist Sort from dBpoweramp.

  22. Re: Sometimes the CD turns out all accurate despite some spots/smudges

    It is worth cleaning them first as the ripping time may be reduced and occasionally smudges will cause errors.
  23. Re: Track artists not showing properly in Cambridge Audio's StreamMagic app for Andro

    Unfortunately there are no real standards for which tags should be supported and it is very common for otherwise extremely competent players to be limited by the software and apps.
