I didn’t say that all the rippers I used created Compilation tags. I
merely said that I had used lots of different software to put into
context the fact that I am aware that not all software is the same.
You have used 3 examples. WinAmp, WMP and EAC. In my view (and I suspect
most others who frequent this forum on a regular basis) I wouldn’t
bother with WinAmp or WMP. EAC is good but being freeware it lacks the
polish and advanced features of dbPoweramp. If you have never tried that
then I suggest you do.

My argument with your point is that you use 3 specific examples of
ripping software as your driver to seek the removal of the existing
Various Artist logic in LMS. 2 of the 3 aren’t rippers by design - it is
an additional feature - to their main purpose. You have ignored the fact
that a significant number of other pieces of software do use (or give
you the option to use) Compilation tags. Personally I don’t like them
but that’s my choice.

IMHO there is very little wrong with the logic in LMS when compared to
other software of its ilk and I think Michael has a lot more pressing
and important stuff that he wants to deal with.
On that note I am going to bed and will put my headphones on and listen
to some music.
