I used Tag&Rename

I just downloaded and tried the program. It works fine. It uses aART frame just like MB when writing album artist tag on ALAC files.
Tried both directly adding album artist tag and enabling "Copy Artist data into Album Artist tag field if it is clear" option, and it worked properly in both cases.

So I don't know why you have the first album artist tag added to your files.

MusicBee keeps changing the tags for Album Artist.  The Album Artist tag = Artist; Various Artists.  I checked the embedded tags and they remain Album Artist=Various Artists.

I had this same issue and someone tried to convince me it was my fault. Ended up uninstalling this pos and switiching to foobar2000.

Yes, but I wanted to give you the opportunity to reply first.
Besides, what do you care about getting some help? You've already uninstalled MB and moved to foobar.

More for anyone finding this page by search.

MusicBee doesnt auto-tag files by itself.

I expect what has happened is this user has seen "Various Artists" displayed in the main panel because the "iTunes Compilation" flag was set (in iTunes), not because the album-artist tag values were updated by MusicBee.
