I'm unable to find how create folder names for split albums (Using every artist)

I once knew how to do this but I am searching now it's been 20 minutes and I can't seems to be able to find it.

What is the syntax to put when I want to create a folder and put, let's say, 2 names on the folder and not create different folders for every artists

Best regards

Make sure that ALBUM ARTIST has both. And use %album artist% in folder name - it will pick ARTIST if no ALBUM ARTIST tag is present.

So e.g.
%album artist% {%year%} %album%\%tracknumber% %artist% _ %title%
will get them into the same folder. (And correctly sorted in Windows Explorer, by starting with track number.)

Thank you but I was searching for a syntax that would group the artist together instead of me doing it manually
Any idea of how doing this plz?

AFAIK, File Operations -> Move will treat every file separately, so the only chance it can dump them into the same file is to check the move all additional files box; then you won't get all artists represented, only the latest moved.

Otherwise, you have to retag ... I think.
