Tagging Various Artists


#1

When i do a search via Amazon or the Freedb Mp3Tag finds the album and then writes
the tag for me but this particular album is a various artists album and Mp3tag writes
the Artist and Title for each song into the Title field and i would like the each different artist
to be written in the artists field and each different title in the title field.

Track #1 example :

I end up with Mockingbird - Inez/Charlie Foxx in my Title field and the Artists field has "various artists" where it should read as Charlie Foxx.

Just to be clear i would like to be able to have it tagged as follows :

Title = Mackingbird - Inez
Artists = Charlie Foxx

And what i am getting is the following :

Title = Mockingbird - Inez/Charlie Foxx
Artists = Various Artists

I looked through the help file and found the following and i still end up with artist and title in
the title field instead of title in the title field and artists in the artists field.

As the help says, use "Utils > Compilation"
and enter
%title% - %artist%

Or use the Musicbrainz search.

I used the Utils > Compilation and says to use a / ( %artist% / %title% ) which was default
and the album still gets tagged incorrectly.

And i'm sorry but i'm not familiar with Musicbrainz but i did manage to locate the site and
did a search for the album and it was not found in the data base and if it were not sure how
that would help . I would rather get MP3Tag to function the way i need it to as sort of a one
stop shop ....

thanks for the post anyways

You must remove %artist% / %title%
and enter
%title% - %artist%

I mean the Musicbrainz search inside of Mp3tag (Tag sources).
Use the search term
A Time To Remember 1969

Wow that worked great. I thought i would end up with the same thing but with a - instead
of a / . This is such an awesome program . I have a paid tagging program that can't touch
this program and what it can do. I'll be donating when i get paid.

Thank You
