    Simple ifequals naming

    So, guys, I'm stuck :(
    I'm using the batch converter to convert some folders with music. In "normal" albums, I'd like this directory/filename structure: [artist] - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track] - [title]

    However, and as expected, in a VA (Various Artists)/Compilation album, it creates a folder for every single artist/track. Thus, I'd like to have this directory/filename structure for VA albums: VA - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track]. [artist] - [title]

    I tried to put these together using [IFEQUALS]: if the [album artist] was VA, then it'd use one structure; it was wasn't, then it'd use the "normal structure".

    I have no idea what's wrong, but it just creates a folder per artist/track anyway. I've tagged the album artist using both mp3tag (I think it adds a <Band> tag or something stupid like that) and foobar2000. Still doesn't work.

    Here's what I'm using:
    [IFEQUALS][album artist],VA,VA - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track]. [artist] - [title][][IF!EQUALS][album artist],VA,[artist] - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track] - [title][]

    You might need [tag]album artist[]

    Re: Simple ifequals naming

    Would it be:
    [IFEQUALS][tag]album artist[],VA,VA - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track]. [artist] - [title][IF!EQUALS][tag]albumartist[],VA,[artist] - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track] - [title]

    I don't' think dbpoweramp is recognizing the tags now. Could you put it into my example so I understand the syntax. Thanks!

    Nope, it's all messed up now. It's creating folders with the [ifequals] part in them now, and individual folders for each song :(

    You should be using album artist, not artist, so something like:


    [IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[IFCOMP]VA[][IF!COMP][artist][][] - [album] ([year]) [MP3 V0]\[track]. [artist] - [title]

    This is my personal method of file naming

    [IFCOMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],Various Artists[]\[album][IFMULTI]\CD [disc][]\[album] - [IFMULTI]CD [disc] - [][track] - [artist][][IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[album][IFMULTI]\CD [disc][]\[artist] - [IFMULTI]CD [disc] - [][album] - [track][] - [title]
