    Question about Classical Tags

    For years I've used the ARTIST tag to capture information about the ensemble, typically of the form Soloist/Orchestra/Conductor. This has worked well, but sometimes causes problems with phone apps which don't display the information I'd prefer to see. I'm thinking of adding a BAND tag and populating it with the information now stored in ARTIST. I'd then fill ARTIST with COMPOSER.

    The tags in my Classical files would look like this:



    I've tested it and it seems to work well. Can you think of any disadvantage to this new tag structure? Thanks.

    I don't see the benefit of using the composer as ALBUMARTIST and ARTIST, as LMS supports COMPOSER.

    And why would you put the conductor in BAND? I'm not 100% sure about this one, but I think BAND is more or less supported, too. I believe it's mashed into an ARTIST tag internally. With love, of course. :-D
