You can configure up to 16 Custom Tags in Tags (1) page of Preferences. Custom tags are:

  • tags defined in the tag standards which are not enabled in MusicBee by default (less common tags like "Subtitle", "Involved People List" or "Copyright"). These are automatically available in the "save to music file as tag" drop-down menu.
  • tags that you define your self. You can add any number of these in the top part of the [Define New Tags...] window.

You can also choose not to save your custom tags to the music files, but instead save to MusicBee database only.

Custom Tag Settings Edit

display name

Enter the label the tag will have when prompted for input or displayed on the main panel.

save to music file as tag

Select the logical tag name that values will be read from or saved to. By default MusicBee has a list of 30 or so predefined tags you can choose from, such as Sort-Artist for example. These predefined tags are less common but have defined standards for some formats (mostly the ID3 format for MP3 files). For the formats that have no standard defined, the tag names MusicBee uses are on a best-efforts basis aligned with Mp3Tag and foobar. You can add to the list with your tags - see Define New Tags below.

Define New Tags

On clicking the Define New Tags button you will be prompted to enter the details for the custom tags you want to create. The tags you create are saved to and read from music files as with any standard tag and can be used for sorting, filtering, searching and naming.

Enter an identifier for the tag and then the specific tag code for each format - in most cases there is no need to use a different code. One exception might be when the code is already used for one of the formats by other tools you use. On saving, the tags you define become selectable from the custom tags list above.
