I have been playing with fields a bit as I am tagging a bunch of classical music for the first time. I tagged flac files with work, movementname, movementnumber, movement(total), grouping and so forth. I then converted them to ALAC (.m$a) and brought them into itunes.
A bunch of tags transferred over, but a bunch did not. Surprisingly WORK transfered, along with common fields like Name (Title), Artist, Album Artist, Year but movement, movementname, grouping did not.
I thought itunes had a Conductor field, but apparently not, so I guess I will have to add that to the artist field as I noticed that if I do a search it will find any name in the artist field.
Anyhow, I would like to get everything transferred over but I realize that Vorbis Comments don't really support all these fields. I do not see the fields in the Mapping chart. So, as a work-around, I was thinking of maybe converting the files to alac (.m4a) and then tagging the files. Would this be a better solution?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am willing to read and have read a bunch here but am still confused on the subject.
