I'm just a litte bit confused about how to "properly" tag MP3's. I'm using EAC to rip my CD's to mp3 format and EAC writes "CD Artist" into TPE and if a Artist is given for a track then it's written to TPE2. http://id3.org/id3v2.3.0 defines the following tags for artist information: TPE1 - The 'Lead artist(s)/Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)/Performing group' is used for the main artist(s). They are seperated with the "/" character. TPE2 - The 'Band/Orchestra/Accompaniment' frame is used for additional information about the performers in the recording. It looks like Poweramp is using the tags in the following way. Artist = TPE1 Album Artist = TPE2 Should compilation / various artist albums be tagged as: TPE1 = Track Artist TPE2 = Various Artists What about "normal" albums with a single artist? Which tag should hold the name of the album artist? TPE1 or TPE2 or both? Kim
