Album artist = artist

Post by SpritHansi »

Hi!
Is there a script that set the Album Artist field the same as the Album field?
Regards

To the same as the album field? Do you mean the artist field? MM does this for you (if you have populated the album field) automatically when editing the properties.
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.

Yes of course I mean the artist field. :roll:
What do you mean by populated?

I want a script that set the Album artist like the Artist.
I have over 150000 songs, and it will take a week to check all my songs

You shouldn't need to manually update them, MM normally updates the album artist field any time any other tag is updated.

You can force a sync tags by selecting all (or whatever subset) files and pressing control-S.

If you adjust rating or analyze volume that should also update them.

Whew! So I'm not the most obsessed one here afterall.

I think what the poster is asking is if there is script that will add album artist info to tracks that weren't tagged with MM originally.
I'm assuming since he's asking that the monkey doesn't do this when importing tags into the library although I'm aware it fills in this field when creating tags the first time...

Yes, thats right. I have a lot of songs that I have imported into MM, and in this songs, the album artist field is not automaticly updated.
Is there a quick way to update this songs/tags?
