How do we have all tracks an album with various artists saved to the same folder

Newbie here so please be gentle!

This is my folder structure
%artist%/%album% (%date%)/$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%-,)$num(%tracknumber%,2) - %title%

When I process and save an album with various artists, it splits up the album and saves it in folders by track artist. I want the whole album to remain a folder by album name and not get split up. Is this possible in music brainz?

Thanks in advance

Use %albumartist% instead of %artist%

Change that to
%albumartist%/%album% (%date%)/$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%-,)$num(%tracknumber%,2) - %title%

And that should use the name of the ALBUM artist and not the TRACK artist. So you’ll get a Various Artist folder in this case.

And Welcome to MusicBrainz. This place can be confusing as there is so much too it. Be patient, give it time. :slight_smile:
