Tagging multiple artists in an MP3 for Librarian to recognise

When I am ripping my CDs to MP3 and a track has multiple artists, what is the best way to delimit the Artist tag so that Librarian can recognise then as seperate artists and be available in the Artist lookup on my D2 Director?

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. I'd like to help you out with your legacy Numark D2. Unfortunately, you'll have to go one by one for reach track to edit the Artist tag. We recommend using ID3v2, as this offers greater flexibility in the length of tags and types of information that can be stored (BPM for example).

    A popular option offered by many encoders is Variable Bit Rate (VBR). The bitrate will change throughout the track so that simple parts take less space while more complex parts take more to ensure high quality. Most encoding programs allow you to select an "average bitrate" for VBR - choosing 192K, for example, will lead to a file about the same size as a Constant Bit Rate (CBR) 192K file, but the quality will be better overall. 30 Some encoders offer a choice of sample rates from 8KHz to 48KHz, however D2 Director always resamples to 44.1KHz so there's nothing to be gained from encoding at a higher rate than that.

  • Thank you for your reply.
    What I was actually trying to find out was how to populate my Artist tag in my ripping software to allow Librarian to see that there are multiple artists for a particular track.
    Does Librarian look for a delimeter in the Artist tag when it is building up the library of artists. For example, if a track is by "ArtistA & ArtistB feat ArtistC", how can I list those three artists in the Artist tag of the MP3 so that Librarian will add all three to the Artist lookup? Is a semi-colon the way to go, ie "ArtistA; ArtistB; ArtistC"?
