Albums that are Collaborations or Splits (2 or more artists), but not Various Artist albums (like the NOW! series) are an issue for the way i am currently trying to tag/sort my music out. Obviously the files can only be in one place, but if an album has more than 1 artist (LuLu by Metallica & Lou Reed for example) can only be physically placed in 1 location and i don't want that location to be a "Various artists" folder like most people seem to use.
I want to have mp3 tag check each album for multiple albumartists, and store the files in the first artist's folder and create a Shortcut in the folder of the other artists. It looks like i may be able to write a custom "export function" to do this, but I don't know how to make a "custom export function" do this so if anyone has code to do this or can give me some pointers to get me started it would be greatly appreciated!
