Where are all the tags stored, ID3 or Traktor?
Can anyone confirm where all the tags are stored? I know some are stored within the ID3 and that Traktor stores some itself.
The reason to ask this is that I have recently removed a lot of music from my collection, but I may want to add it back at a later date. The last thing I want to do is to lose anything I may have entered into comments 2, rating, genre etc. I have looked around, but there seems to be various answers and no definitive list.
Please only comment if you know for fact where each one is stored as this could help other people in the future.
Artist - ID3
Hey Reverend, check this thread: https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/add-multiple-tags-to-use-in-smart-playlists.449673/.0
To ID3 is saved (according to my experimental verification ;-):
Thanks for that, that is a really good start.
I am also pretty sure that track, cover art, key and possibly comment is ID3 as well but would like confirmation.
I am also pretty sure comment 2, import date, play count, and coler is Traktor only.
Still to confirm
