Introduction of sub-genre category "style"


Recommended Posts

At the moment there isn't any way to display "style" as sub-category to genre category in Poweramp apart from using folder hierarchy with respectively adjusted folders. But I could imagine/I am hoping that this (inserting of a new category and user-defined sorting) should be enabled after the release of the "custom categories/sorting package" which Max MP announced.

Not and remain within the ID3 spec for file tagging.

In the original ID3 spec, Genres were only available as a single byte of data which referred to a simple pre-defined list of words (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ID3). More recent implementations (such as ID3v2.3 or ID3v2.4) allow for free-format text, and even for multiple versions of the same tag (so you could assign two different genre tags for one song for example, such as "Electronic" and "Pop"), but there is no concept of a genre 'tree' with sub-divisions within the spec.
