(1) Tag identifiers written by MusicBee to audio files

Tag types (column "T")
  • Standard tags: (blank)
    they are all available in MusicBee's interface (most of them in the «Edit Tags» window), and you do not need to define them as custom tags.
  • Custom tags: (c)
    those shown in the table below are predefined in «Configuration.xml».
    To be able to see them in the «Edit Tags» interface, under tab «Tags (2)», you must first define them as custom tags in MusicBee's preferences.
  • Virtual tags: (v).

How to add a predefined custom tag to MusicBee's interface:
  • Open Preferences (Ctrl+O).
  • Select tab Tags (1).
  • In section custom tags, choose an unused entry, say «Custom2».
  • Replace display name «Custom2» by the name of your choice.
  • For save to music file as tag, select the predefined tag in the drop-down list.

(2) MusicBee vs. mp3tag

The following table presents, for each tag recognised by MusicBee:
  • the matching internal name used by mp3tag;
  • the tags used by mp3tag in the various file formats,
    only when mp3tag diverges from MusicBee
    -> for customising tables, see section (3) Harmonising mp3tag with MusicBee.

(3) Harmonising mp3tag with MusicBee

When the identifiers written by MusicBee and mp3tag differ, if you want mp3tag to harmonise with MusicBee's identifiers, you will need to add an entry to mp3tag's mapping table.

So as to encode the tables below in mp3tag:
  • Select menu File -> Options
  • Select section Tags -> Mapping
  • Click on the star button to add a new entry, and double-click on its elements to modify them.
    When populating the mapping table by copy/paste, paste with Shift+Ctrl+V instead of Ctrl+V.
The values for each entry are listed below.

NOTE:
Column «MusicBee ID» must not be encoded.


(3a) ID3v2.3 (.mp3)

The table below is necessary for .mp3 files if you have selected ID3v2.3 as writing format in both MusicBee and mp3tag.

If in doubt, this is how you can check the settings:
  • In MusicBee:
    Preferences (Ctrl+O) -> Tab «Tags (1)» -> save MP3 tags as:
    • select ID3v2.3
  • In mp3tag:
    File/Options (Ctrl+O) -> Tab «Tags / Mpeg» -> Write:
    • tick ID3v2
    • select either ID3v2.3 UTF-16 (recommended) or ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1 (reduced character set)

(3b) ID3v2.4 (.mp3)

The table below is necessary for .mp3 files if you have selected ID3v2.4 as writing format in both MusicBee and mp3tag.

If in doubt, this is how you can check the settings:
  • In MusicBee:
    Preferences (Ctrl+O) -> Tab «Tags (1)» -> save MP3 tags as:
    • select ID3v2.4
  • In mp3tag:
    File/Options (Ctrl+O) -> Tab «Tags / Mpeg» -> Write:

Great work! (again)

A few quick observations:

Perhaps change the title so that it includes the term 'Tag Mapping'?
That will be a search query often used for something like this.

I noticed some tags absent from your list:

- Love (a tag in MusicBee these days)
- Volume Adjustment (RVAD)

And a few that are in your Custom Tags table, but are in fact Standard Tags:

- all 'Sort' tags
- iTunes compilation (can be set in the Tag Editor) (but needs a virtual tag if you e.g. want to show it as a column)
- Musician Credits List TMCL (can be entered as Artist: role/instrument)
- Mix Artist TPE4  (can be entered as Artist: Remixer)
- Involved People List (TIPL) (not exactly sure how that one works since I don't use it, but Artist: Performer seems to write it)

And I  am looking forward to MusicBrainz' Picard being added.
It should really be there too…

@hiccup:

Thanks for your compliment and judicious observations!

  • Title suggestion: DONE.
  • Sort tags: OK, they will be shifted to the first section in the next update. DONE.
  • iTunes compilation: OK (I had missed it in the GUI) => next update. DONE.
  • Volume adjustment: I'll look into it => next update. DONE.
  • Artist: Remixer, Artist: Performer, Artist: role/instrument: DONE.
    the information I have for now is incomplete. The analysis may get slightly more complex, since MusicBee uses several tags when splitting the roles: PERFORMER, DISPLAY ARTIST, and others, which are transparent to the user.
  • Picard tags: well, a new (maybe daunting) task in prospect :-X, but I'm not reluctant. If it could be another «joint venture» (as for BBCeditor), I'd be glad. I'll keep you posted when I have enough spare time to prepare that «DeLuxe» version.  :)  DONE by hiccup.

Great.
Since we have had some interactions about this project behind doors, I know that my 'bible of tags' was an important source for all this.
All relevant information about tags related to MusicBrainz/Picard should be there to be found and can be used and/or copied also.
No hurries of course, and let me know if you would appreciate it for me to do something with the Picard stuff.
 
But again, a tagging table like this is not complete without Picard. In my (strong) opinion.
It's really the ultimate tool to retrieve complete information on releases and tag your files with it.

You are right, these are more complicated tags and may be difficult to include/explain in a tag mapping table.
Good luck with it!  ;-)
I'll sit back, watch the show, and sip some red

 A couple more observations:
    Missing tag: 'show movement'  (see below Picard Mapping table for details)
    At 'Musician Credits List', for ID3v2.3 it says 'TXXX/MUSICIANCREDITS'  it should be: 'IPLS:instrument'
    At 'Release Time (Episode Date)', for ID3v2.3 it says 'TXXX/TDRL'  it should be: 'TDRL'
Also, I realised that it is a pretty much impossible task to create a proper Picard mapping table without being a Picard user yourself.
So I have created one. Feel free to use or copy it as you please. If/after you have published it yourself in one of the above posts, I will remove this one, so not to have duplicate information in this thread.

       For tags that have a different tag field name between Picard and MusicBee:

            •  Option 1:  Create a script for Picard that makes sure that the desired tag gets saved using the same tag name as MusicBee.
                               e.g.: $set(ORIGYEAR,%originaldate%)

            •  Option 2:  Open MusicBee's Configuration.xml file, find the 'Tag id=' entries for the different tag fields,  and edit them to your liking.
                                e.g. for VorbisComments:  <Tag id="Original Year" id3v23=… id3v24=… wma=… vorbisComments="ORIGINALDATE" mpeg=… ape2=… />

Hi,
Just my two cents regarding the Musician Credits mystery. Using ID3 2.4,  the artist splitter is what writes the Artist: Performer tag which appears in the tag inspector as Musician Credits tag. I do recall Steven saying that MB only reads the Musician Credits tag not write it. To add to the confusion, the bible of tags table has Artist: Performer being populated by the TXXX/Performer.

Are you sure about that?
For me it will show under TXXX/PERFORMER

What I believe is correct. What is it that you find confusing?





The Picard - MusicBee mapping table below did contain some errors regarding 'performer'.
I have just corrected those and updated the tables.


P.S.
I myself find it very rare that Picard ever writes a plain 'performer' tag though. The performers are—luckily—almost always defined including their instrument/role.
So it may be a very rare tag for other users too?

  • Thanks a lot for the Picard tables!
    I couldn't have built them up so fast and so well (since I've never used Picard, to begin with). I don't see a reason to adapt the layout and it's better that you keep ownership of those posts so as to be able to update them when needed. I'll add the references to the TOC and adapt the thread title. DONE.
  • Volume adjustment: the tag is written in .mp3 files only. For next update. DONE.
  • Show movement: for next update. DONE.
  • Release time: IS NOW APART FROM Episode date.
    the values in the table were taken from Configuration.xml, and are conform to what I observed when testing:
    TXXX/TDRL in an mp3 ID3v2.3.
  • Musician Credits List: REMOVED
    the values were also from Configuration.xml, but I hadn't tested the tag so far. When testing this evening, "Musician Credits List" seemed inaccessible: impossible to add it as custom tag or refer to it in a virtual tag. Then I found a discussion between Steven and other fellow forum members (in 2017) about that very tag. In particular this reply and subsequent ones.
    "Musician Credits List" is now deprecated and replaced by "Artists: Performers". For more details, consult the latter link.
    Plus this quote: "both Involved People and Musician Credits are saving to one tag now for Mp3 files" (Steven, 2017-02-02).
  • Next week, I should have a bit more spare time to analyse the artist splitter in detail, and wish to present the following tags in a separate reply of this thread:
     DONE.
    - Artists: Artist
    - Artists: Guest
    - Artists: Performer
    - Artists: Remixer
    - Display artist

    One thing to mention that may have confused some in the discussion:
    When an artist is credited to be just a performer (without an instrument or other role specified), that one will save under a separate tag from the other performers.

    And perhaps also good to know:
    A tool such as Picard will write roles such as producers and arrangers to the TIPL tag.  (involved people list)
    Which is correct, since they are not performers or musicians.

    But MusicBee does not have that tag available by default. (not sure why)
    So you will need to create a custom tag for it before you can use it.
