Hi, I just downloaded flac files of some Bach music that the Czech Radio has very kindly made publicly available; check this out if you are interested too:
The sole defect that I can see with their files is that they did zero tagging. I would like to send them an email telling them how I tagged their files, to hopefully educate them.
The sole issue that I am struggling with is how to deal with multiple artists (performers in this case) in vorbis comments.
If you look at this pdf file that they provide to describe the album
you can see that there are many performers named for each track.
For instance, tracks 1-4 should have this as the value:
soli Dagmar Valentová - violino piccolo Martin Stadler ▪ Marek Niewiedzial ▪Tereza Pavelková - oboe Kryštof Lada - bassoon Václav Luks ▪ Miroslav Rovenský - French horn tutti Simona Tydlitátová ▪ Eleonora Machová ▪ Helena Zemanová ▪ Martin Kalista ▪ Adéla Štajnochrová ▪ Markéta Knittlová - violin Lýdie Cillerová ▪ František Kuncl - viola Marek Štryncl ▪ Hana Fleková - cello Ondřej Štajnochr - double bass Sebastian Knebel, - harpsichord
How can I stick text like that in the Artist vorbis comment using mp3tag (am using the latest, 2.39)?
When I copy the text above and paste it, all that appears is the first line, namely, soli.
What happened to the remaining lines? Is this a known issue with mp3tag, or should I report it as a bug?
Note that vorbis comments can contain anything, including new lines, so the problem is not with the text content itself.
This next is probably hopeless, but is there any way to get players to recognize multiple artists/performers? Is there some other universal technique (\\ or / separators, or one artist per line like the above)?
