Allowing mathematical operators for the formulas of virtual tags would allow creating some pretty handy tags.
I would like to have a Play count / Skip count ratio for my songs, but offcourse the possibilities are endless.
Although I do not know how much effort it would cost to implement this, it seems like an easy feature to add.

I don't know about adding values of tags (of same track, I assume), I'd like to be able to display the duration of a group. Some examples:
  • Duration of CD1
  • Duration of Schubert's Piano Trio D929. All its track have the same Set Subtitle tag, and I use it in a sub-header virtual tag.

Maybe it's too specific or complicated for a function.

Especially if a COUNTA function could be added (count fields that are not empty).  It could count # of tracks or albums for an artist.
virtual tags can only work with tags of a single track.

Why is this still not a thing...?? :(  :-\  :'(

bump!!

I also want to perform arithmetic operations on tags.

PS
Is there a way to get the 'number of days' using the 'last played' date? for eg. 212 days?

Super impressed new user, but yes: +1  :D

Alternatively, is there a way to export all library metadata to CSV?
I'd like to calculate, f.ex. avarage track rating per artist.

Would love an option to do this as well, but won't you have to rewrite the entire file everytime you play/skip a song? Wouldn't a better option be to specify where musicbee stores this data and synchronise that across devices?
