I'm the noob-supreme in all but the most obvious aspects of Mp3tag. I tagged an extensive Jazz collection with little problem, but my much larger Classical collection presents a whole new wrinkle, as you might suspect.
1 - I have searched like crazy here, but am not finding suggested layouts. How are boxed sets with natural subgroups best handled? E.g., DG's box "Messiaen's Complete Works" has several disks devoted to organ, several to chamber, etc.
2 - Where/how might ALBUMARTIST be useful? I'm thinking that if I put Beethoven in COMPOSER, put von Karajan in ALBUMARTIST, then I could use $if2(%composer%,%albumartist%) in ARTIST, and similar constructs for other fields, to give me something I could use for both Jazz and Classical.
3 - I have several versions of some works; some are easily distinguished by artist alone, but even then there are quite a few with same composer and artist, but different performances most easily distinguished by year. What should I do for tags here?
Any help with this, or pointers to info specific to tagging classical music in the context of Mp3tag, would be hugely appreciated. Output devices will be Squeezebox; I currently use foobar on Windows, and am trying to figure out something for the Mac. All files are flac.
Many, many thanks.
