    probably times 1000. but we can tell similar stories of many talented artists. But to each their own....I'm sure much of my music is hated by others.

    Question Re: Tags, Tags, and more Tags ...

    Hi guys,

    A bit of a backwards question to be asking at this point, I know!, but what if I was the REMOVE some of the tags I originally created a couple of years ago?

    I mean, I am really wondering if I actually need all of them?: eg. ARTIST SORT, ALBUM ARTIST SORT, CONDUCTOR SORT. I am pretty sure FOOBAR can cope adequately without them. And I really only ever search for an ALBUM or ARTIST at any given point (ie. my searches are rather basic and I mostly know where everything is anyway).

    The thought of ripping my pending 100 CDs and having to add this extra data is seriously putting me off gettin' started. I don't think it would take too long to remove the unwanted tags.

    Anyway, your thoughts would be appreciated as always...

    Paul

    Very easy to do in bulk for all your previously ripped files. Start dbpa Batch Converter, click on the top level directory holding your music files, click on CONVERT, then select [ID TAG UPDATE] as your convert item. Once ID TAG UPDATE pops up, click on the "Deletions" tab, and enter the tag fields you want to delete there. Then in the bottom right of that popup, select "convert". This will remove all those tag fields from all your files.

    You should experiment with an album or two first to make sure you understand what is actually happening. But bottom line, this is easy. I decided a while ago to get rid of all the STYLE tag fields in my 113,000+ library. I pointed at the top folder, holding all these files, put "style" in the delete tab, clicked convert, and it ran a while, then all done....style tag gone from everything.

    On the other hand, having these extra tags doesn't cost you anything. It is not bothering anything, It won't make things sound better to delete the tags. And you never know, 3 years from now you may be using a player that you want to use ARTISTSORT tags.

    Paul,
    If Foobar is displaying those tags, you should modify it to not display them, and if you want to return to using them they are still there. A couple of years ago I accidently added some tags I didn't want and used Garym's method to remove them. I don't believe the file size changed much, if at all, so if you are hoping to reduce the size of your library, it might not change it much.

    Hello monsterjazzlick. Alternatively you could backup ARTIST SORT to BACKUP ARTIST SORT and then delete ARTIST SORT.

    what exactly do you not like about foobar2000's use of these tags. foobar2000 can be customized in almost any way you want, including not using these tags.

    Nothing, it's a great feature in foobar. I just suggested an alternative that would work in any player if so required.
