%albumartist%

Hi,

i'm using the "Album Artist" field for featuring artists.

In the settings I've typed
[%artist% [%albumartist%] - ]$if2(%title%,$filepart(%filename%))

to display it. So I only extended the original input by [%albumartist%].

But if a track has no album artist, the artist appears twice in the playlist (e.g. "Linkin Park Linkin Park - In the end")

Someone an idea?


Thanks

greetings

Don't let the library copy the Artist into the Album Artist field.
Prefs -> Media Library -> Local Media -> Options tab -> uncheck "Use Artist as Album Artist if not available"

For the ones that already do this, you will have to go through and edit them.
