Multiple genres?

Post by peert » Thu Oct 15, 2020 12:10 am

Trying out the editor ... is there any specific support to manage multiple genres (ID3 v2.4)? It seems like the field is a plain text field where you enter free form text using whatever delimiter you prefer?

I have started added multiple genres to my tags. Unfortunately, I find that Muso selects according to some method - is it the last in the list? just one of the genres to display for the album as a whole and compares that to the "classical" genres list to determine if the album is classical. This means that even if the album is tagged with a classical genre, if any one of the genres is not in the classical list, there is a risk it will be wrongly classified. E.g. I am including instrument type in the genre list and clearly, say, "piano" could be either classical or not so I dont want to include it in the classical list. Even if the genre "classical" which is in the list is included, the album is treated as "piano" and not shown as classical.
Hope that makes sense
