Topic: Custom Remix indicator..
WWDJdkPRO InfinityMember since 2008
At the moment we got 2 options when we want to use the remix field..

1. use the getRemixWhenParsingFilename.
2. manual edit it in TAG editor.

I would wish there was an option to state what character was used for the Remix field...

example:
we could have a file like this : Bat Out Of Hell II - 01 - Meat Loaf - I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That).mp3
when using the 1st option, everything between the ( ) get transfered to the remix field... not good.

example 2:
If we have a file like this : Now That's What I Call Music Vol. 29 CD 2 - 08 - Meat Loaf - I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) {Unplugged Live Vers.}
it still take the ( ) to the remix field.

So if we could have a custom field to type in what ever character we use to set the remixes, it would be a big improvement
No matter if its { }, [ ], ( ) or - , +, ~ or something different.

The parser assumes you have somewhat clean standard tag or file names ...
Artist feat Singer - Track Name (Remix name).mp3

Somewhat the "standard" for most all ... And the parser will adjust common variants such as putting feat. singer in track name, instead of artist..

In your case, you have Album name as first part of the file name (and also tags? ) and that is perhaps a bit beyond standard ways.
Should just name the folder the file is in for the album name (" Now That's What I Call Music Vol. 29") , or put the album name in the album tag of mp3 tags perhaps ;-)
Probably well worth just organizing your songs better..

That being said, a future track "cleaner" (parser) could perhaps take into account or feature a more advanced syntax and code like you suggest :)

The tag is a complete reflection of the filename.
The reason for the filename is that i have all tracks on an FTP drive, and that don't allow search option on tag.. only filename :)
