Choosing folders and filenames Alex Fuchs October 29, 2020 14:09 Updated Follow Audials can name your songs according to the scheme artist - song title and save all songs in the same folder. But you can also define other rules for the structure of the music files, for example if a new folder should be created for each album. 1. Open the "Music" menu item in Audials and click on "Storage: PC" at the bottom. A menu will open in which your media collections are displayed. 2. Open the options for your PC. Another window will open in which you can choose where Audials should save your audio and video files. From now on Audials will save all recordings in these folders according to their media type. 3. To set more precise rules for structuring and naming your files, click on "Expert" in that window. A further window will appear. 4. Select "Automatically update subfolder and file names ... ... when editing tags" at the bottom of the dialog box. 5. Select how Audials should structure and name your music (and your videos) in the future. Here are some examples: \Artist - Title.ext Audials saves new tracks directly in the chosen base folder. The filename of the track contains the name of the artist and the song. \Artist - Album - Title.ext Audials saves new tracks directly in the chosen base folder. The filename of the track contains the name of the artist, the album and the song. \Artist\Artist - Title.ext Audials saves new tracks in folders named by artist. The filename of the track contains the name of the artist and the song. \Genre\Artist\Album\nr Title.ext Audials saves new tracks in a folder named by the album. This folder is contained by a folder named by artist, which you find in a folder named by genre. \Artist\Year\Artist - Title.ext Audials saves new tracks in folders for each artist and there in a subfolder named by the year.

There isn't an attribute for this, although it is in the Spotify source. As it works at present if I save a streamed album that was on two CDs I end up with a folder containing two track 01s, two track 02s etc and then my audio player plays the tracks in the wrong order. 1 Comment actions Permalink TBingeman August 13, 2020 20:48 I agree with sknab that an attribute for disc number needs to be added for multi-disc recordings. I have ran into this many times and end up needing to rename files to show they are in order without disc numbers. 0 Comment actions Permalink Demonika June 29, 2019 11:00 i am not interested in separating the tracks into individual folders, the Audials tagger is so crap it can't recognise the correct album a track is from 90% of the time meaning that this will create lots of folders none of which are correct. I need to be able to save everything into a single folder (Audials 2019 ignores the One common subfolder.. option) and have filenames set a I want them. choosing the one common subfolder and naming convention artist - album - nr - track.ext doesn't work and there is no indication of how the naming convention should correctly be. 0 Comment actions Permalink Please sign in to leave a comment.
