    Question RE: Safest / Easiest Method Of Deleting Unwanted Tags?

    Hi folks,

    I hope it's permissible to open a new thread for this single question (moderators please feel free to relocate).

    I would like to delete, from my 600+ ripped (FLAC) CD collection, the following tags, please:

    ArtistSort; AlbumArtistSort; ComposerSort; ConductorSort

    I have decided the above are pretty much superfluous for my needs.

    Obviously I want to be sure of the safest method of doing so! In the first instance, which s/w would be most appropriate for this particular task, please? Illustrate or mp3tag?

    Many thanks in advance for any kind assistance offered here.

    Best,

    Paul David Seaman

    First backup your tags using the Audio Info Utility Codec (or Export in MP3Tag).

    Then use the ID Tag Update Utility Codec > Deletions tab.

    In MP3Tag, I tend to use the Extended Tags... dialog.

    Hi mville,

    Is this within dBpa Music Converter? I mean, is Audio Info a DSP (d/l from Codec Central)?

    Sorry for any misunderstanding.

    Yes, but it isn't a DSP, it is a utility codec: dBpoweramp Codec Central: Utility Codecs

    OK, great. So it's an add-on.

    I can back-up one of my HD copies.

    I'll d/l it tomorrow, thanks.
