    Write Sort Artist tag for iTunes?

    The ID Tag processing DSP module seems to know about most tags, but it doesn't list the iTunes Sort tags - Sort Artist, Sort Album, Sort Album Artist etc. I keep all my music as Apple Lossless, and use dbPA to convert to AAC for the iPod, and there is still one manual step I need to perform, which is to copy the Album Artist field from the ALAC file to the Sort Artist field on the AAC (due to the different ways Sonos and iTunes sort files).

    I see that these Sort fields are supported in the latest release of the M4A codec. Is it possible that they could be added to the DSP plugin? Or are they already there, and I'm missing something?

    D'oh - just realised that just because a field isn't listed in the menu in the ID Tag Processing effect, it doesn't mean you can't write to it! Typing in "Sort Artist" manually had the desired effect, so I'm happy.
