Hi Guys,

Newby here and apology's if this has been answered... It may be quite simply but im not finding tag.exe's documentation very easy to understand...

Im trying to batch encode all of my .ape files with id3v1 tags...
The filenames are as follows:

eg. c:\music\The Al Di Meola Project - Kiss My Axe [EAC APE]\The Al Di Meola Project - Kiss My Axe - Global Safari.ape

I want to populate the tags with the Artist - Album - Title information.

Evertime i refer to the A L T scheme i end up with the following information in the ARTIST field in the tag:

The Al Di Meola Project - Kiss My Axe [EAC APE]

when it should just be:

The Al Di Meola Project

I take it that TAG is pulling the Artist information (A - scheme) information from the foldername...

Is there anyway to tell it NOT to pull this information from the folders and filename and from the cuefile?

or

failing that, is there anyway of telling it not to look at any of the information BEFORE the "-" in the folder name?

ANY HELP WOULD BE LEGENDARY!!! smile.gif

* Maybe theres another command line tagger i can use that will pull the fields from the .cue file as oposed to folder and filename???

If it's compatibility that you want then why are you using Monkey's Audio?

I hear ya... My reasening is that i've always used monkeys for years and have around 20,000 tracks already in the format... although as of the last few weeks i am seriously thinking of porting over my collection to FLAC to stay current under a format that i believe is still being worked on? I spose my biggest issue with the APE tags is the potential issues i may run into when with having to tag to id3 when porting my collection to mp3 for my phone, car stereo etc... as tagging isnt super important to me as i just want the ARTIST, TITLE and ALBUM info i thought id opt to use what i deemed the most widely supported tag format (ID3)

But going back to my original post does anyone know if i can use tag.exe to read the cue files and populate the .ape files with (any format of tag) as i cant seem to find a command to do it...

Anyone got any commandline alternatives to tag.exe for this? It's literally the last piece of the puzzle for my script and ive trawled the net and forum posts trying to dig out a little self contained command line exectuable i can call in a batch... sad.gif
