In regards to the ALT-T function in the development build, if I want to put in a bpm field .. and want that field to be recognized by other programs who go by the tag definitions as provided in a recent post, I would call the tagfield "TBPM" correct?
Is there a limit on the size of that tag field?
The reason I ask is that most people use a three digit bpm (like 128) for bpms. I calculate out my bpms so that 7 character spaces are needed (like 128.145).
Right now I also put those as the first 7 positions of a filename:
128 185 Donna Summer - State of Independence (DMC Mix).mp3
Can you help me with the syntax needed to convert the bpm to a bpm field .. and then the artist name to the artist field (the rest is easy, of course).
Any help with this would certainly help me figure out some other little personal preferences that I want to work into my mp3tag installation.
btw at this moment I have about 20,000 mp3 files on my hard drives that I'm preparing to archive onto dvd. I want to get as much info in the right place as possible so I can have the final disk listings put into a database for easy lookup and retrieval in the future.
Also, only about 500 of the 20,000 have the bpm situation at the top of the filename, but its's a format that I use on every WAV I play .. but have been lazy at transferring over to the mp3s because I've never had a way to easily manipulate the information into a useful tag format .. until now!)
