    Multiple composers and artists not stored with ;

    I have a problem with multiple entries in composer and artist being separated with two back-slash characters "\\" i.e "Paul Statham\\P. Angel Gabriel\\Dido Armstrong" rather than using the semi-colon "; ".
    They all show correctly on screen in dbPowerAmp ripper, but when opening with Mp3tag (to tidy up some of them once ripped).

    For example see screen shots...

    Just found the Tag Manipulation "DSP" that sorts this... for anyone facing the same, just add the "ID Tag Processing" DSP and set the Manipulation option "Multiple Artists to 'Artist1; Artist2' (for non multiple artist aware programs).
    Pity I missed this earlier, but now I've found it should make ripping EVEN easier!

    This is correct. dBpoweramp and MP3Tag use different (display) separators for multi-value tags, depending on the file format. e.g. flac files in dBpoweramp, multi-value tags are separated by '; ' whereas in MP3Tag the separator is '\\'
