Really?

Sow how was is it then possible for me on Windows XP / Windows 7 with Winamp 5.666 and is possible for me on Windows 10 with Winamp 5.8 to change via Mp3tag data as I please in every kind of tag field [even a made up by me] of the following filetypes: FLAC, MP3, TTA, WAV, WV?

And also WMA does not seem to have an issue with that [but has limitation in regards to using certain signs in certain tag fields]

While on the other side along with M4A there is also APE, but that one has a problem even with "letting go of a file" - which only happens when Winamp is closed after its playback

I stopped using Winamp to write data in tags of audio files the moment I discovered Mp3tag, which must have been over 15 years ago - so I do not know about that

And... it means that the problem is with ALAC, ACC or some other format?

My NCH Switch Sound File Converter Plus that I use for creating sparse M4A files in its encoding option for that formats says "AAC / M4A Encoder Settings"; plus has an option to "Force MPEG Output". Thus... I do not know what kind of files am I really creating?
