Faircamp Manual


Artists are automatically created by faircamp when they are encountered in audio file metadata (e.g. the artist "Alice" will be created if any ID3 tag says a track is by "Alice"). To add further information to an artist, you can expliclity define it in a manifest. The name you assign will be used to match the explicitly defined artist (by you in the manifest) to the implicitly defined one (by the audio file metadata) so pay close attention that both are written the same (NB: lowercase/uppercase is ignored for matching). If (as often happens) different audio files use slightly different versions of an artist name (e.g. "Motörhead" vs. "Motorhead"), or the artist appears in a collaboration (e.g. "Alice (feat. Bob)"), you can additionally specify aliases that will also be matched against to map the artist to the right tracks.
