Artist multi-item tag

RE: Artist multi-item tag
.... the final follow up ...
Yesterday Barry (2manyrobots.com) sent me a build of Yate with the implementation of the changes due to Alac multi item management.
The build will be available in few days as version 6.1
This is the description:
“ The new setting is in Preferences-Audio-MPEG-4 and is called Multi value write method. The default value is Single Atom which is what Yate previously did. For any field such as Artist, Yate will write the multi value delimiter to a single ©ART atom with a single data child. This is 100% within spec. The second value is Single Atom/Multiple Data. In this setting Yate will write a multi value Artist field to a single ©ART atom with multiple data child atoms. While this is in spec I can only find a single application other than MinimServer which processes the data. Apple applications will only show the first item. The third value is Multiple Atoms. In this method Yate will write a multi value Artist field to multiple ©ART atoms each with a single data atom. This method is technically invalid. However it has a certain degree of popularity with some Windows based taggers and at least one Mac based tagger. MinimServer will read this format as well. Other applications will display the first or last item.”
.
My choice is for the Single Atom/Multiple data, it works ... like a charm ...
Unluckily the full compatibility with Audirvana and JRiver, the two players I could test, is “broken”: Audirvana will show a single string with all the artists listed separated by a blank, JRiver will show only the first item.
Anyway it is quite simple to go back (if needed) to the first method, it’s just a matter of loading and saving the Alac files.

I want to express my thanks to Simon and Barry for making this implementation possible.
