I apologize for the absence. I used the Metadate Field Names from the manual.

Again, I appreciate your help on this. I got a lot of stuff organized with SongKong, though now, I need to do the fine-tuning of some titles.

------------

Year format: YYYY. I am fuzzy here on Year. I believe it to represent the release year as in Surrealist Pillow, originally released 1967, but the album being tagged is a reissue from 2004. The Year value would be 2004 not 1967?

If the Media or Year field is empty, is there a way to condense the tag name and not have an empty space?
First letter of Sort Album Artist is used to create first directory

Single Artist
Code:
S\Sort Album Artist\Sort Album (Media Year)\Zeroed Track Number -Title


Single Artist (Multi-Disc)
Code:
S\Sort Album Artist\Sort Album (Media Year)\Zeroed Disc Number\Zeroed Track Number - Title


Single Artist (Compilation)
Code:
S\Sort Album Artist\Sort Album (Media Year)\Zeroed Track Number - Title


Single Artist (Compilation) (Mulit-Disc)
Code:
S\Sort Album Artist\Sort Album (Media Year)\Zeroed Disc Number\Zeroed Track Number - Title



Various Artists
Code:
V\Sort Album (Media Year)\Zeroed Track Number - Artist - Title


Various Artist (Multi-Disc)
Code:
V\Sort Album (Media Year)\Zeroed Disc No\Zeroed Track Number - Artist - Title

Yah, sorry about the confusion. I can be a bit thick sometimes. I'll review the data fields section of the manual. Then I'll do the generic placeholders examples. I appreciate your patience.
I'll try. I'm not an expert on the field names. Also, I'm sometimes don't realize the difference in field names and will use one that does not do what I want and creates multiple folders for one album. I'll give it a go. I'll work on it tonight.
Jaikoz is too powerful for my mind to comprehend the how to write my own scripts. My last idea for a script was too complicated and generated weird results.

What I ran into with my last tagging idea you adeptly assisted me with revealed some shortcomings in my scheme. In compilations and various artists compilations, it would use the individual song's release track for my Release date Label Medium mask. I wanted to keep all the tracks under a directory for the whole album.

I greatly appreciate your software and talent. If you can help again, it would be a blessing.

Thanks

Here's my current idea:

Single Artist Single Album

Source information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transformer_(album)

I have three copies, two CD and HDTracks.

R/Reed, Lou/1972 ? Street Hassle/2002 BMG Heritage CD/01 ? Vicious.flac
R/Reed, Lou/1972 ? Street Hassle/2009 Sony Music CD/01 ? Vicious.flac
R/Reed, Lou/1972 ? Street Hassle/2012 HDTracks HD/01 ? Vicious.flac

Single Artist Compilation
Single information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NYC_Man_(The_Ultimate_Collection_1967%E2%80%932003)

I have one copy. For single artist (not various artists) compilations, I want to follow the same format for single artist single album. Both for Single and Multiple CD sets. Sequential numbering for multiple discs all in same folder.
R/Reed, Lou/2003 ? NYC Man/2002 BMG Heritage CD/01 ? Who Am I (Tripitena's Song).flac

Various Artists Compilations
Source Information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue%27s_Gallery:_Pirate_Ballads,_Sea_Songs,_and_Chanteys

Sequential numbering for multiple discs all in same folder.

V/Various Artists/Rogue?s Gallery Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys/2006 Anti CD/01 ? Baby Gramps ? Cape Cod Girls.flac

Wow, much gratitude for all the work you put into this. I tested it out, and it works quite well.

In 8th grade (14 years old) math, I was taught algorithms. I wish that knowledge easily translated to computer languages.

Again, thanks for your work.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I wasn't sure which was the best tag to use to get the "Last Name, First Name" and "Bandname, Article (A, An, The, Der)" format.

About 12 years ago, I tried to come up with a semantic folder/filename system that made sense to me. Over time it has evolved with the creation of MusicBrainz.

In most of my programs, I have tried to get the basic folder/filename structure, then I go in and do the manual renaming and additions to the folder names. So I've been manually doing Last Name, First Name and moving the articles to end of the Bandname and adding the last 4 digits of the MusicBrainz album ID.

I am extremely grateful for your assistance. It matches the level of commitment to the quality of the software that helped me choose Jaikoz.
When I tested out the program, I did not realize the complexity of writing folder/filename masks. I do not know Javascript and I am not a programmer. I'm just a guy that has an already established folder/filename convention. Would some please help me create a script to accomplish the following. It would be much appreciated.
