Working as a composer I use foobar's tagging abilities to document the progress in my compositions or to update a to-do list for further jobs. In order to see the creation date of my files I notice it in the comment field but it would be more pleasant if it would exist a syntax like %file creation date% to read this automatically with the benefit that I could sort by this field.

To get the creation time stamp of the file from the file system is the only one solution and correct info to get the latest file added on hard disc.

The last-modification time stamp does not help because we always keep our tags up-to-date and have to update our older files very often (e.g. I update the GROUPING tag with info in which "crate" the file is - using the info for djing with Serato).

I recently requested the last modification and creation timestamp for Tag & Rename and they have implemented both now in 3.7. :-)

Beside an "it-would-really-great" it is more a "must-have" to have the creation time stamp information.

E.g. I want to listen to my latest files I got in the office beside my main job as software developer. So sorting by creation time stamp is the only one help.


Thanks a lot!
