In the past when I've made compressed audio (usually ape or mp3) from my vinyl transfers I've split the recording into individual tracks and used the format "side.track" for the track number. For example the third track on side one would get the track number 1.3 and the 5th track on side 2 would get the track number 2.5 etc.

Up until recently foobar had no problems with this format. Since the last time I updated (currently however it no longer likes this format. It will still display the tags correctly (eg as track number 2.3 etc) but it wont let me edit them in this format and if I mass-edit any other fields then it clobbers the track number tag and sets it to just the whole number part. For examlpe 1.3 would just become 1 etc.

Do you think this is a "bug" in foobar that might get fixed or is the standard that the track number must be a simple whole number only. If so I guess I'll have to edit all the track number tags in all my vinyl rip collection?

*ape = monley audio lossless

I use a SIDE field. DISC seems logical too.

Changing your old format to something new is absolutely trivial with foobar2000 though.
