    CD Ripper Standard Tag Names

    Hi all,
    I am am wondering about the actual tag names that are written to the files, not the displayed names or values being written.

    I am running into some discrepancies using different programs reading different tag names for what is essentially the same tag.
    Example: "Album Artist" or "AlbumArtist" or ALBUMARTIST"

    I am sure CD Ripper has a list of the Tag values it writes but I can not seem to find it.

    Can someone point me to the default tag names that are created when I rip a CD to flac using CD Ripper?

    Thanks,
    Chip

    If you are talking about flac, there exists no official standard for Album artist, so we use the most common variety.

    I am talking about flac.

    If I do not configure anything special what are default the tag names that are used when ripping a CD?

    AlbumArtist

    Many are configurable, via: dBpoweramp Configuration >> Codecs Advanced under the FLAC ID Tagging section.

    Case makes no difference in FLAC tags, so ARTIST and aRtist are the same thing.
