Author Topic: Extract Role/instrument from the Artist:performer tag  (Read 2335 times)

In the column browser you can sort and filter the albums by the artist:performer tag.
This shows the name of the artist, with the role/instrument in parentheses.

What I would like is to be able to also filter my albums by the instrument / role, and not just by the name of the artist.
For example, to display the name of all tenor saxophone players.

I am trying to extract that information with virtual tags but I am not able to (I'm trying with $Split and the Redwing formulas for removing characters).

Can it be done, or should be a wishlist request?

Thanks for any help.

That should be a wishlist item because virtual tags can't populate multiple values for tracks with multiple performer tags.

I've made a slight edit so that it won't show any value for tracks with no performer tags.
