I figured it out. Anyone looking to make any field capable of using multiple tags, this will work as long as in the foobar settings you enable that field to be able to have multiple settings:
Preferences > Advanced > Display > Properties dialog > Multivalue fields.

In case anyone else is wondering about this issue: I finally figured it out by looking at the formatting from the album list tab in the settings. Apparently the field needs to be %<artist>% instead of %artist% however it is not as simple as that in the media tree as it is in XML format so simply changing it like that wont' work.

If you open the XML file in a text editor
Instead of %<artist>%
you need to use
%&lt;artist&gt;

Hope this helps someone

Script no longer works nowadays. I get this:


Reloading or fiddling with the config doesn't help.

Remove the line containing 'lame_init_old' from the file 'include/libmp3lame.sym'


Wow!
Now I can compile lame 3.100 successfully!!  I'm so happy!! :-)

Does the removed line is really needless one?

The major ways that 19kHz subcarrier leakage might hurt is if you send the signal to old analog circuitry.   Even then, -60dB is pretty low.  However, if you are seeing higher levels, then it could be a problem on electronics that has bad HF nonlinearities.   Old transistor designs (e.g. simple, three transistor gain circuits without appropriate management of HF range in the design -- and other such situations) can happily and every effectively produce audible intermodulation distortion (not necessarily as bad as having birdies, but simply an obvious edge to the sound.   Also, old tape gear didn't like strong levels of HF (again, -60dB is okay, -20dB might start causing problems.)
In the digital world, it is VERY easy to get rid of the 19kHz signal, and frankly, if it bothers you for some appropriate reason, then just nuke it with a nice filter.  If you use Sox (I live in mostly a command line world, since I am an EE/software person, not a music professional), then just add the option 'sinc -15k' or 'sinc -14.5k'.   These commands will do a sharp filter without adding terrible phase or peaking issues.  (Sox is free and even though it has a fairly ugly command line, it generally works fairly well.)   So, if you are using sox, then the following command might be useful:

sox infile.wav outfile.wav sinc -15k

I use sox on Windows and on Linux, and is a nice little swiss army knife that doesn't require firing up a big GUI to do a simple task.

In fact, i'm looking at a sub that can provide usable audio at 16hz.

Show me that sub :)

16Hz is fan subwoofer territory.  Or are we talking about some huge wall of drivers with 5000W?

A pair of DIY Sonotube subs with 18" drivers and enough power behind them should be able to do it.

I want to equalize volume of multiple MP3 files to listen to them in a car, but the CD player does not recognize changes I do in MP3 Gain too well (have an impression numerous folders are normalized differently, although I choose by Track option). Moreless, some files crepitate (not sure if that's the right English word). Any way to change volume in the files themselves in bulk, not just add tags?

The "-87" should be compared to the overall level, which seems to peak at -27 dB or so.
Still, a -60 dB tone at 19 kHz should not be much? Likely it won't even be useful as perceptual noise substitution? ;-)

(By the way, a cassette deck capturing 19 kHz - that sounds like a decent one, doesn't it? Or was the pilot tone just so much louder on the air that the -87/-60 is after significant roll-off?)
