    Asset and Tags

    Hi

    Are there a description how Asset uses the metadata Tags?

    I have problems to understand Artist vs Album Artist,, Sort handling etc.

    If you're having odd results with sort handling, be sure to check whether you have ARTISTSORT or ALBUMARTISTSORT tags (as these will override the sorting). I typically leave ALBUM ARTIST blank unless:

    1. The album has multiple track artists (or even on track that has a different or additional artist from the other tracks)
    2. I want to organize variants of a single artist into a single artist for browsing, etc. (e.g., Doug Sahm as Album Artist while ARTIST could be Sir Douglas Quintet, Doug Sahm & Friends, The Masked Men, "Little" Doug Sahm, Wayne Douglas, etc.)
    3. I want a compilation tribute album to show up under the tribute artist name (e.g., Bob Dylan tribute album I put "Bob Dylan" as ALBUM ARTIST.

    Hi
    Thanks for your info.. it did clarify some things for me.

    I am using Tagscanner for handling tags. I cant find ARTISTSORT and ALBUMARTISTSORT among the tags. Downloaded Mp3Tag,, and the tags are there but Mp3Tag are so slooooooow... *smile*

    1. Any suggestion on a program,, ? fast, stable and with support for ARTISTSORT and ALBUMARTISTSORT.
    3. Are there simular sorting tags for Conductor, Composer and Director ?

    I suggest you persevere with MP3Tag. It is an excellent tagger.

    What do you mean by mp3tag being slow? It is very fast for me (except if I'm loading up 75,000 tracks all at once...that takes a few minutes). dbpa can do tag manipulation, additions, etc. as well. Just select the files (batch converter or regular converter), "convert to" ID TAG UPDATE, and do your mods in additions, modifications, etc. section that pops up. Any halfway decent modern tagger will deal with ARTISTSORT or ALBUMARTISTSORT.
