Setting of APEv2 tag
Ok, I'm using foobar2000 0.8.3.  I was finding the tag format which best fit my need. After an hour searching from this forum, I decided to use ID3v1+APEv2.

I recognized that there is two method to write APEv2, one is writing the tag at the beginning of the file, other is at the end. But I can't find any setting of APEv2 tag in foobar2000. Anyone can help? Thx!

Right click the file(s) and click 'Properties'. In the Metadata panel click the 'Add new' button then choose a field name from the drop down box and enter a value for it.

I am using this way to write APEv2 tag, but i am not sure it writes the info at the start or at the end of the mp3 file.

I have a feeling it writes the APEv2 tag to the end, but I've asked in #foobar2000 on Freenode to cofirm.

APEv2 is always written at the end of a file.

Bullshit. The only tag which can be written at the beginning or at the end is ID3v2.4.

That is not true, see [a href="http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=APEv2_specification]APEv2 specification[/url] in the HA wiki and Basic Components of a SV8 Stream from the Musepack SV8 proposal. While it is possible to write APEv2 in the beginning of a file, I don't know of any software that supports this (and Musepack SV8 is yet to come).
