A simple guide on Metadata. What you should look for and how you can find it. Metadata is basically the song's information which could be the artist (creator of the song) and (title) and the source (where it came from) etc. You put this information in the "General" tab in "Song Setup"
Here's an image of how the "General" Tab looks like :
This is where you put all the song information into!
First, You need to know some basic information of the song. Of course, you find a song somewhere (ex.Youtube soundcloud) and you obtain the mp3 from the site. More than likely, you already know what song you want to map or you've stumbled upon a song when searching. In such case where you've stumbled upon a song, look around the site for some basic information on the song. NOBODY can figure out the song title / map title exactly when listening . However, when you are lucky and do guess what the song is it won't hurt to look up the song information to make sure.
For example, let's say I find this really cool anime opening I would like to map in youtube.
Take that information and above and put it into google! BUT, if you happen to find the song information in the video. YOU can use it! (but make sure you check the official site to see if it uses (TV Size) etc.
Now that you've searched in Google, a list of results should pop up! You can use Reference sites to help you find the official website. From there try to find the Japanese Romanticized version of the name of the anime. PUT that inside the search box (If you are Japanese and already know it, just type it in) Once there you should be able to find the official website! (you can add official website to your search) to narrow it down.
The video has the artist : sweet ARMS , use that for the artist.
In this case, the Japanese name for Date a Live II is デート・ア・ライブⅡ , put that in google, the first result that shows up should be it , which is
Look around and you should find it
The title is : 01. Trust in you (TV Size)
You can use ANY source, as long as its Official.
- Official Anime Site (Source Site)
- Official Artist Site
- Distributing Site (ex.Amazon, iTunes)
- Album Cover
- CD Cover
if you search around those sites, you should be able to get all of the song information (including use of TV size )
- MyAnimeList (MAL)
Use official sources and you should be fine.
Good luck guys!
