Title: Incorrect tagging with wavpack files APEv2?
Post by: DJ Graco on 2022-08-04 10:32:19
Hi,
I discovered a bug in foobar tagging files. What I discovered concerns wavpack files with apev2 tags.
And so.
One single was encoded to wavpack format. I tagged it with mp3tag. When I opened the file in foobar, I noticed that the "Album Artist" field was empty even though I added a value there.
So I decided to put the test in there for a test. After typing and opening the file in mp3 tag it turns out that foobar has made a new tag called "ALBUM ARTIST" and it should be "ALBUMARTIST". This "ALBUMARTIST" was visible in the foobar only as a separate tag at the very bottom of the list. And it should appear as "Album Artist" in the gui interface.
I use foobar2000 v1.6.12b2.

Actually Mp3tag is incorrect here. The standard tag fields in APE tags use spaces. Though foobar2000 should be changed to read these alternative spellings too.

You can create a mapping (https://docs.mp3tag.de/customization/options/tags/mapping/) in Mp3tag for

Tag: APEv2
Source: Album Artist
Target: ALBUMARTIST

to create a field that is compatible with foobar2000.
