Monkey is removing all tags.
This occurs with compression from .wav to .ape or .mp3. It also occurs with conversion from .ape to .mp3.

How can I get monkey to retain all the tags?

Have you tagged your WAVE files with APEv2? This is not usual practise, and it's not surprising that an application would just ignore them.

I expect that foobar 0.83 would let you do what you want, but I doubt 0.9 will, as it adheres to standards more strictly.

The tags on the .WAVs were created by EAC&LAME. However, the problem is definately with Monkey since any combination of compression or conversion using Monkey strips the tags--any version of tag, and all information. My solution for getting the tags back is to use foobar--v0.92 works just fine. But I don't want to have to copy tag info back to the .APEs after their creation.

I did not know you could use LAME to tag Wave files. rolleyes.gif

Uh, er... (backstep) tags on .mp3s. blush.gif
... Anyway, problem still exists: tags on .APEs get stripped when converting to .MP3 using Monkey.

You are confused. At least we got there in the end. wink.gif

Monkey's Audio GUI is a simple converter. To retain tags when transcoding use foobar or dbPowerAmp.
