LAME: how do I add album artist from the command line?
Hello,

I'm unsure as to how you go about adding 'Album Artist' to the user defined command line. I'm assuming it goes along the lines of "--t? %albumartist%" but I just can't figure it out.

Any help?

'Album Artist' like foobar wants it?
--tv "TXXX=ALBUM ARTIST=%albumartist%"

If you're using lame.exe you can get it to print out a help file to well help you by using this command on it:
Code: [Select]
lame.exe --longhelp > "LAME EXE Long Help.txt"

The long help file shows what the tagging fields to use are.

Complexity of incoherent design.

Thank you so much, that worked.

Also, is there any way (using the command line) to add the Album Artist so it shows up in iTunes too? Because it's only showing up on on foobar for me.
