Questions / Re: Splitting Artists Via "sort as"
Last post by The Incredible Boom Boom on Today at 05:34:37 AM   |  Started by Shine_Spark
I believe that the syntax is correct under sort as but it does not appear to work.

Try adding a space after "Juice;"
You'll also have to use the Artists view and "Group by" <Sort Artist>

For sorting purposes, it doesn't make sense to have two separate values.
Even if a track had two different Sort Artist values I assume MusicBee will just read the first one and use that, but technically the result is "undefined".

All the displayed values appears. It's why this occurs when no selection is made in the Artists view.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Option to display Artist/Album counts in the Column Browser.
Last post by Zak on Today at 04:53:56 AM   |  Started by jippijip
Apologies for dead thread revival, but this request would also resolve the question in this new thread:

https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=36048

Below is my suggested approach from that thread.



I think it wouldn't be too hard to add a second option to the context menu so this section would have:
* Show Track Count
* Show Album Count

A column heading of either "Tracks" or "Albums" could be displayed, which would also make it more discoverable that you can click to sort it.
This heading might need to be optional to avoid crowding the Column Browser heading row with text, either for narrow displays, layouts with lots of columns or just user preference for a cleaner look.

Questions / Re: Help with customizing and configuring panels

The good news is that someone else already requested this a few years ago:

https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=25561

The bad news is that I mistakenly thought Artist Album Count was already a thing, but it isn't.
I think I conflated Album Track Count and Artist Track Count.
So it may not be as easy to implement as I thought.

I've bumped the older thread with my post from above.

No, Sort Artist will not make any difference to that. The only way to have a track listed under both artists is to split it in the Artist tag.

There's a reason there's an exclamation mark next to it. Enabling this will move every file in your library.
Make sure you understand the implications of that, or you'll end up like this guy:

https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=36050

It is strongly recommended to copy a handful of different types of files into a test library and get it working on that before enabling it on your main music library.

-edit-
I see it's not just me wary of telling someone how to enable this.  :D

Edit->Edit Preferences->Library...music library...auto-organize media files

Warning: This will do exactly what you tell it to.  Make sure you know what you want it to do and understand how to do it before you activate it, because it will move your files around according to your settings without any intervention once it's on.

Many of these rudimentary functions are detailed at the wiki: https://musicbee.fandom.com/wiki/MusicBee_Wiki.  If you plan on using MB for the long haul, time spent there is time well spent.

Questions / Splitting Artists Via "sort as"
Last post by Shine_Spark on Today at 03:58:27 AM   |  Started by Shine_Spark
Is there a way to use the sort as function to split multiple artists so that the song is sorted under both artists without editing the artist tag itself?

For reference here is the sorting tab for one of the songs I'm trying to edit. I believe that the syntax is correct under sort as but it does not appear to work.

Can anyone help me with a Regex problem? I'm trying to make a duplicate Musixmatch yaml that'll try to get lyrics for artists with swapped name order.

Example: I have a song titled "Kieru Daydream" by "Kawano Marina". But the Musixmatch URL is https://www.musixmatch.com/lyrics/Marina-Kawano/Kieru-Daydream. Predictably, here's what happens with the updated Musixmatch yaml from a few pages back:

Code
18/01/2022 09:27:38 [INFO] Musixmatch-Update tries to load the lyrics...
18/01/2022 09:27:38 [DEBUG] The constructed URL: http://www.musixmatch.com/lyrics/kawano-marina/kieru-daydream
18/01/2022 09:27:38 [INFO] No lyrics found.
18/01/2022 09:27:38 [DEBUG] no lyrics found from Musixmatch-Update

I'm trying stuff like this, but it seems like it isn't matching:

Code
[regex, '(\w+) (\w+)', '\2 \1']
or
[regex, '([a-z]+) ([a-z]+)', '\2 \1']

Code
18/01/2022 09:37:59 [INFO] Musixmatch-Name-Order tries to load the lyrics...
18/01/2022 09:37:59 [DEBUG] The constructed URL: http://www.musixmatch.com/lyrics/kawano-marina/kieru-daydream
18/01/2022 09:37:59 [INFO] No lyrics found.
18/01/2022 09:37:59 [DEBUG] no lyrics found from Musixmatch-Name-Order

In the past when I used iTunes, if I made a change to an album, the actual files for the album would change and shift around my hard drive accordingly, automatically. For example, if I had an album labeled as Freak Out by Frank Zappa, there would be a Frank Zappa folder with a Freak Out folder on the inside, with the mp3's in there - then, if I were to change the metadata in iTunes to have the album be by Frank Zappa & The Mothers, a new folder titled Frank Zappa & The Mothers would be made, with a Freak Out folder inside, and the files would automatically move there.

In MB however, it seems like whenever I change metadata, they stay in the folder, which is, at that point, incorrectly labeled. Is there a way to change this behavior?
