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

    And for the record, I too am pretty diligent with my tags, have been since I started ripping my CD library around 2002 or so. And yet there are still titles that pop up when I shuffle the deck that I need to go back and find. Doubt I'll ever really be done!
    Hi GBrown,

    OK, I hear you. As I say, I thought it was a good idea at the time. I have also used 'brackets' in places, annoyingly so!

    I'm not sure if there is a fast and easy way of correcting these?; or if you have to deal with them CD by CD?

    1. dbpa Batch Converter, convert to "ID Tag Update" and use various options to replace names
    2. PerfectTunes
    3. mp3tag 'actions' to do the same basic thing as item 1 above. This can also get very fancy and strip out all " and ' etc. but I've not used that function and requires a bit of regedit formulation....

    If your sort tags contain non-alphabetic characters, this should not be a problem unless you have tags like:
    Corea, "Chuck" and Corea, Chick

    where you expect the sort order (ascending) to be:
    Corea, Chick
    Corea, "Chuck"

    because, it will probably be:
    Corea, "Chuck"
    Corea, Chick

    Hi Garym,

    Are these are 3 different methods for achieving the same end result? Or 3 individual steps which make up a single process?

    Cheers,

    Paul

    three different options for the same thing. Do only one of them.

    Yes, I know, but it is only a problem if you ever have the situation as described in post no. 768, which is unlikely.

    Hi Garym,

    I am quite unsure as to how to proceed, I am afraid. I guess I must have the wrong option selected? (please see attach.)

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Looks like you are converting to FLAC and using ID TAG UPDATE DSP as part of FLAC conversion. That's not what you want to do. If you want to delete tags, you CONVERT to "ID TAG UPDATE" DSP, not FLAC. Then within the conversion popup box you can delete tags, etc.

    Hi Garym,

    I have spent a couple of days now messin' around tryin' to follow your steps but I am afraid I am just totally dumb here and can'grasp it at all!

    In the first instance, do I need to be on THIS page, please:


    Sorry to be such a complete lame brain again!

    Cheers.
