There is no point in that as they are tied to Metadata Standards. Adding custom Tag data is on our to do list but due the big big speed issues (six core Cpu can act like Single core on 5000 tracks and we tried to include it internally within dev builds we use for feature testings) it is low priority.

There is a point in that as there is a hugely supported complaint since the invention of portable digital audio that the metadata standard is almost useless when it comes to classical music

Someone has to solve it some time...to reach to an almost "disabled" listeners crowd

But I guess it's very hard to find developers who are classical music aficionados, therefore able grasping the need to begin with... :(

I think the real problem is to come up with a "standard" that can be used

Any implementation depends on standards more than on software developers. It is important that anything you do in one program with your files works with other programs as well.

If that was true there would be no technological developments. If you only comply with the "standards" you will have the "standard" product. Why not create a new "standard"? Why not make "mediamonkey" a benchmark software for classical music lovers? This is more than a player, it's a library management software, right? Why should you force all the medium to fit into the library's narrow set of rules?

Anyway, maybe you might consider increasing custom tag fields from 5 to 15+...that would be very useful for us, too... :)

Cheers.

uhm, that's why you normally have an organization behind a standard where generally stakeholders work on new versions of the standards. For MP3 there is the ID3 organization, they even track compliance issues with some software: http://id3.org/Compliance%20Issues

My idea was for database/management purposes...never mind, I've found out that music collector pro is capable to do what I need and then some...

But to be fair, someone (with some punch) has to start it. Sometimes it is a company that does this. Nothing wrong with leading ..

My plugin wishlist - two tools I use all the time in Foobar - ABX Comparator and File Integrity Verifier. It would be especially great if File Integrity Verifier were available in MediaMonkey along with the added ability to write results to tags.

Can you make a script that analysis songs to find the BPM and/or Keys and adds them to a custom field
