To be eligible for submission, the metadata must meet these conditions:

  • (to be added)


NOTE: Mp3tag references here are to V2.44 or earlier - later versions of Mp3tag broke compatibility.

The format preferred by the tango.info editor for receiving track metadata is text consisting of:

  • the header line
<TINP>;%discnumber%;%track%;<track format>;%album%;%BAND%;%title%;%genre%;%artist%;;%date%;%_length%
  • for each track, a line containing the metadata field values according with the header line
    • <TINP> is a source-dependent expression yielding the album TINP.
      • If the source is TINT-based filing, this may be generated by the Mp3tag placeholder %_parent_directory%.
    • [Further details to be added]
  • <track format> - one of those listed at tango.info music track format, e.g. CD-A

The following Mp3tag export config will generate such a text (but with %year% instead of %date%)from a TINT-based filing source:

$filename(c:\temp.txt,UTF-8)'<TINP>;%discnumber%;%track%;<track format>;%album%;%BAND%;%title%;%genre%;%artist%;;%year%;%_length%'
$loop(%_parent_directory%\%_directory%\%track%)$regexp(%_folderpath% %album%,'^.*\[(\d+)\].*$',\1);$regexp(%discnumber%,^(\d+)/.*$,\1);$regexp(%track%,' *\[.*\]',);CD-A;$regexp(%album%,' *\[.*\]',);$if($and($and($neql(%BAND%,),$neql(%ALBUMARTIST%,)),$neql(%BAND%,%ALBUMARTIST%)),ERROR! Band/AlbumArtist conflict,%BAND%%ALBUMARTIST%);$regexp(%title%,' \[.*\]',);$lower(%genre%);%artist%;;%year%;%_length%
