Title: Why aren't tags written out to mp3?
Post by: Terne on May 24, 2019, 09:15:35 pm
I am a new user and everything looks fine, except maybe I had to adjust tracks start - stop times more than I expected, even after I looked up the album in MusicBrainz. But, more importantly, why do the mp3s I write out not have any tags? I do not even get track numbers.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

They do.  What are you playing them on?

Hi,

I play mp3s on Swinsian. I run OS X 10.14.4. The mp3s do not load into the iTunes library. Swinsian, I think, fills out the (track) Title with the filename. Otherwise there is no tagging information.

Hello, I fixed the problem. I did several things so I do not know what actually fixed the problem. My mcf file had all zero permissions so I changed it to 7 for everything. I added VinylStudio to the apps that can control my computer. Now when I write the mp3s I see all the tags in Swinsian.
