    OK, I see, thanks.

    So you might say that '~' vs. '>' could be a matter of personal preference.

    It IS only a matter of personal preference (remember also, that the > is an illegal filename character, so it will need handling).

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

    Hi,

    On the Santana/McLaughlin CD, track-one is half music and half announcement!:

    "Echoes Of Angels" / Introductions
    Do you class this as:

    Echoes Of Angels~Introductions

    Many thanks.

    mville, Cheers. I am settling for '~'. Thanks.

    In Foobar, if I search for '~', then all of the 'medleys' appear!

    I think I also prefer the visual appearance. In the attached Santana/McLaughlin (PNG) track, I saved 15 x characters!


    Cheers,

    I have seen some names using the tilde character from one of the metadata providers; maybe they are rips entered by mville?! It is certainly a neat solution, and I like how you're using search to the max! Pleased that you've found a (legal) solution, that works well for you.

    Let's hope that Aphex Twin considers the illegal characters, if he ever gives us another, Computer Controlled Accoustic Instruments, album!!

    He might have used those characters because they're illegal. He wouldn't the first.

    Hope I am not being a pain by bumping my earlier question. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    Ha! A work colleague got prison for importing an illegal character.

    I like flirting with danger, so AC/DC remains!

    I thought you agreed with mville's suggestion, in post *49?

    I forgot about the hash being replaced! This is exactly why the use of a legal character, such as the tilde, helps compatibility.

    Hi Oggy,

    Yes, I am using the '~' symbol for medley tracks.

    But my question was rather would you use '~' when a single track consists of a song immediately followed by introductions/spoken material? I mean, it is not a medley because there is only one song!

    eg. American Trilogy ~ Band Introductions

    Really, the intros should have been placed on a separate track, rather than the tail end of another.

    Cheers.

    Yes, intros are often indexed incorrectly on CDs, so unless you split the track and re-index, in mville's words of wisdom, "it IS only a matter of personal preference".

    When a single CD track contains more than 1 title, I use the tilde ~. I don't restrict it's use simply to medleys.

    Oggy,

    OK, cheers.

    I will stick with:

    American Trilogy ~ Band Introductions

    for now. 'Splitting' the track might be something for the future.
