REQ: Handling of ALBUM ARTIST and/or ARTIST
« Reply #52 on: January 14, 2013, 02:32:16 AM »
I like to request a new setting or even a permanent behaviour concerning the handling of ALBUM ARTIST and/or ARTIST tags.

If the token $albumartist is used in template, then Tags2Folders should look for that ALBUM ARTIST tag, of course. If that tag isn't valid (i.e. doesn't exist) than ARTIST tag should be used instead.

This is a good idea.  I'll find the time to implement it.  =]

Hi!

Is this program still beeing maintained?
If so, then I would like to ask if there is any chance to keep the original filename.

I have albums, with mp3, jpg, nfo, txt files in the folders.
So what I wish to do is to move them into Genre folders (which your program is already capable to do).
BUt I wish to keep the original foldername.

Would it be difficult to implement?
So your soft should judge by one mp3 within the folder the genre type, and move the entire folder, to a destination\genre\original folder name...

Would be a very quick Album sorting method for me :)

THanks in advance!!!

Hi, Corgo, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

Yes, I maintain my programs as I find the time.


If so, then I would like to ask if there is any chance to keep the original filename.

Based on what you describe below, I assume you meant foldername and not filename, right?

I have albums, with mp3, jpg, nfo, txt files in the folders.
So what I wish to do is to move them into Genre folders (which your program is already capable to do).
BUt I wish to keep the original foldername.

Understood.

Would it be difficult to implement?
So your soft should judge by one mp3 within the folder the genre type, and move the entire folder, to a destination\genre\original folder name...

THanks in advance!!!

What you're requesting is doable, yes.  The tricky part is how to add such functionality to the existing Tags 2 Folders interface.  Give me a bit to think about how to implement it.

v1.1.1 - 2013-10-02
    + Added option to use substitute the $artist tag value if the
      $albumartist tag is missing (and specified in the template,
      of course).  (Thanks, Lesmo16)

v1.1.0 - 2012-12-08
    + Added ALBUMARTIST support for MP3, FLAC, OGG, WMA and MP4 files.

v1.0.9 - 2012-12-04
    + Added $albumartist token.  Because there is no hard standard for an
      ALBUMARTIST tag, Tags 2 Folders evaulates for the following tags
      (in order): ALBUM ARTIST (APEv2 tag), ALBUMARTIST (APEv2 tag),
      MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMARTIST (APEv2 tag) & the ID3v2 TPE2 frame.
      (Thanks, pat.rick)
    + Added ability to edit and save multiple token strings.

Hi! Would anybody be able to tell me what token to input in order to have my music sorted by artist AND create album subfolders within each artist's folder?

Please read through this post here: http://www.donationc....msg182194#msg182194

Let me know if that answers your question.  Keep in mind that you will almostly certainly have to use a different template for multi-artist or various artists albums.  My advice would be to start small and use the "Copy" mode so it doesn't mess with your original files.  That way, you can get an idea of how the application works.  Also, make 100% sure that your files are tagged properly.  I cannot stress this enough.  Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.  =]  Let me know how it goes for you.

That's what I was looking for! Great, thanks! Great program!

In regards to the various artists albums--what token might you suggest for that?

make 100% sure that your files are tagged properly

Anyone have a suggestion on a program which automatically tags mp3 files -- by downloading any needed info from the Internet?

Manually tagging a huge collection of tunes would be nearly impossible.

Thanks!
