Stop supplementing information Artist Name > Album Artist

Post by GaBriela39 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 10:09 pm

Hi Poiko,
how can i stop the automatic supplementing information from Artist Name to Album Artist?

I have filled information in Artist Name and every move in software copy this to Album artist. And manual delete is needed.

It's annoying and unsolicited. I do not want to.

Thankf for help and for chance to gett of this.

Jiri

Agreed. It's never helpful & always unbearable & it started recently despite me never updating EZ CD Audio Converter. Using this program takes multiple times as long as it used to as a result & it's unacceptable.

I just tested the behaviour with EZ CD Audio Converter 8.0.2.

It does not automatically supplement Track Artist -> Album Artist

In your case the Album Artist is read from Cue Sheet PERFORMER per disc data. If you do not want it to happen you need to delete the PERFORMER per disc from the Cue Sheet.

Album Artist for the tracks is read from the Cue Sheet global PERFORMER tag (i.e. Album Artist).

pMetadata->AlbumArtist = CueSheet.Performer;
