Sorting artists into alphabetical sub folders

Post by bobthegoat2001 »

I'm starting to get quite a bit of artists, which is making it take a while to scroll to certain artists in my MP3 player. So I'm wondering if I could start sorting the artists into alphabetical sub folders, (like A Perfect Circle would go into a folder called A, Breaking Benjamin would go into the B folder, Chevelle would go into the C folder, etc.). Is there any way that Media Monkey can do this automatically?

Also is there a way to have a Various Artist folder for albums like soundtracks or albums with various artists go into it's own folder, not into the V folder (the "artist" ID3 tag of all my various artists says "Various Artists" for the way I sort it now).

To create a first letter folder use <Album Artist:1>.

You can use $if statements to create conditional rules like $if(<Album Artist>=Various Artists,\Various Artists folder\,\Regular Artists folder\)
