Custom Tags Editor

Custom Tags Editor

The custom tags editor allows you to create whatever tags you like, both at the album level and the track level. Use these to add tags that VinylStudio doesn't directly support or to keep track of your work. Please note that not all players display these tags for all file types. You can also specify values for tags that VinylStudio would normally generate automatically. If you do this, your custom tag(s) take precedence.

You can specify the following keywords in the value field:

[Date Recorded] The date this album was recorded, in the form dd-Mmm-yyyy (e.g. 01-Jan-2021).
[Time Recorded] The time this album was recorded, in the form hh:mm (24 hour clock, e.g. 21:30).

You can also use any of the keywords listed under Controlling How Split-Up Tracks are Stored Using Custom Strings.

Here is a list of tags that VinylStudio normally generates automatically. You can override these here. For a full list, please refer to the ID3 specification.
