I want to prevent Artist Sort and Album Artist Sort from being written by default

If the file already has these I can prevent them from being overwritten but if they aren’t present I have to manually delete them. I don’t want my artists sorted by Last Name, First Name and my playback software eliminates “The” from band titles

You can use a script in Options > Scripting to unset this data:


Or if you actually also want to delete existing tags from files when saving use $delete:


Alternatively you can also keep the tags but set them to the artist name:


Or maybe you want “The Beatles” still be sorted under “B” and not “T”:


Thank you it was driving me crazy
