    Question Custom Tag problem

    There seems to be a bug in the latest release affecting the reading of custom tags. For some reason now, the Initialkey custom tag generated by MixedInKey isn't read by dbPA, but the EnergyLevel and Style tags are.

    Also, the [ID Tag Update] and [Read metadata file] DSP's do not seem to work with [Tag from Filename]. Is it possible to create a custom encoder to Read/Write metadata files and apply the [ID Tag Update] DSP after reading the metadata file?

    DSPs cannot work with Utility codecs, as nothing is actually converted when using [Tag From FileName]

    Which audio format and tag type are you using?

    Is it possible to make a Utility codec to read and write metadata files?

    Re: Custom Tag problem

    Thanks for the bug report.
    The file you have submitted contains an ID3v2.3 tag, with the following entries:
    TPOS (disc number)
    TPE2 (album artist)
    TXXX "release date"
    TALB (album)
    TPUB (publisher)
    TCON (genre)
    TYER (year)
    TRCK (track number)
    TIT2 (title)
    TCON (genre) - ???? second genre entry, empty, looks like it was written by a broken app
    TXXX "tagging time"
    TPE1 (artist)
    COMM (comment)
    APIC (picture)

    There's no sign of "initial key" tag. What exactly am I expected to find in the "initial key" tag?
