Hey,

I hope to be able to describe my problem in a reasonably comprehensible way.
To explain for now: I also tag my files with the singers. For this “Vocals” tag I use the “wwwartist” field.

I wanted to change something a few days ago in an already tagged album and opened it in mp3tag. I noticed that there were no entries in the field for “Vocals.” If several singers were listed, there was only one left.
So for example:
Instead of “Anna Zanoda; Gerhard Brian”
There was only “Anna Zanoda” in mp3tag.
Even in "extended tags" window was only one tag for Vocals.
But: In musicbee there are still “Anna Zanoda; Gerhard Brian”

How is that possible? Even when I close and reopen musicbee, search for new files, update database ect. It's still the same. When I change the tag in mp3tag it is changed within seconds in musicbee also.  :-X

Some fields in MP3TAG can't display multiple values. If you open a track using the Extended Tags window, you'll see the rest of your values.

Thats the point as I wrote: in the extended Tags windows there is only one entry for vocals. :x

You're probably better off posting this in Mp3tag forum, but if you want to upload one of the affected files we can take a look at it here.

In this file for example. wwwartist (I use this for "Vocals") is "Chris Bay; Shane Vonderwall" in musicbee, but just "Chris Bay" in mp3tag.
Even if I edit and update the tag in musicbee, it is still the same in mp3tag.

MusicBee's Tag Inspector is interpreting this as having two separate WOAR ( 'Official artist/performer webpage') frames, one with contents Chris Bay and the other Shane Vonderwall--so, your ";" splitter between the two names is what seems to be causing the confusion.  Mp3tag and Kid3 are simply treating the symbol as a field "end" and showing only the first name.

Try adding the names as two seperate WOAR frames and see what happens.  According to id3.org, "There may be more than one "WOAR" frame in a tag if the audio contains more than one performer, but not with the same content."
