    Arrange Audio - seem to not pick Album Artist

    I am a frequent user of the great functionality Arrange Audio. Slowly I am getting there, fixing all my collection albums and various artists, hard work but the tool is great. Or rather has been great :p I have had a one month break in this work, and now I seem to have forgotten how to do it.

    There are a few albums left for me to fix. I use 'Path' same as the original, so I should be getting the result in the same folder (?). I use Album Artist as the field to build the 'root': Album Artist\Album\Track No - Track

    Suddenly this now gives the wrong result. Starting point:

    \1916\01 - Song

    I want

    \motörhead\1916\01 - Song

    When I change from Album Artist to Artist I get what I want. But then I will get the wrong result for a huge number of collection albums. I look in MediaMonkey and the both Artist and Album Artist contains 'Motörhead'.

    Where did I loose this?

    Thanks, but I wonder (I sit in my office and cannot try).

    I start with a file that looks like this

    Music\[album]\[track] - [title]

    and I want it to look like

    Music\[album artist]\[album]\[track] - [title]

    and when I run that I see no change. When I replace [album artist] with [artist], i get what I want for an album wich is not a varuious artists album.

    Are you sure the track has an album artist set in the tags, using a tag dbpoweramp can recognise.

    Now I found something.

    When listing tracks to be converted in dbpoweramp, i display also taginfo, where the Album Artist field is empty.

    When listing the file in mediamonky the file contains the Album Artist.

    How can I fix this?

    Perhaps it's just a formatting issue. Sometimes the [album artist] tag is denoted as Album Artist, and sometimes it's AlbumArtist. Perhaps you need the opposite of how it's currently writing them?

    Nah, sorry to bother you. It seems Media Monkey do not necessarily update the Files Tags physically, just because I update the content in the 'monkey'.

    Yeah, iTunes does that too. It saves changes in it's own library index file, but that doesn't necessarily mean the actual metadata was changed. :(

    Anyway, it was easy to run a bactchjob to update all tags. Now the great Arrange Audio is running!
