    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, I have a similar issue with multiple artists. I have songs by Artist A, some by Artist B and then some by A and B. I have tagged the duets as Artist = A, B using mp3tag. However, the duets do not show up when searching for Artist A or B. I need to search for A, B in order to list those duets. How do I fix this in such a way that a search for Artist A or B will show the duets too?
    Don't you need to use a semicolon instead of a comma?

    in mp3tag, one uses '\\'to create multivalue tags (ArtistA\\ArtistB). If one uses dbpoweramp, one uses ";" as separator. (these are just the things used in the tagging program. They get converted to whatever is normal for that codec/tag type in a player or library program. For example, even though in mp3tag I tag a FLAC file with multiple artists (ArtistA\\ArtistB), when it shows up in foobar2000, it "appears" as "Artist A, Artist B". And it also works appropriately in LMS as multiartist tag.

    Thanks for the explanation! I have never used mp3tag. I've used dbPoweramp and Tag&Rename (which was well worth the $30 or so !)
