MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Buttons with scripts in MB language
« on: May 21, 2024, 01:53:51 PM »
I didn't understand how to insert scripts.
I hope you can operate on the virtual tags as well because from what I've seen it doesn't look like it.
I will see if I can find info on the web.
Thanks

It would be nice if scripts could be used as functions to be associated with buttons.
I believe this can already be done with the Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools plugin. If you don't have it installed already, please do, and then:
search for "presets" within that plugin's thread as it would be a good starting point to learn how to customize them to suit your needs.

Any preset-related questions would need to be posted in that thread in order for the developer to see them and offer insight where required.

Hi
I used "advanced search & replace" which is the only one that can do operations even between different tags with conditions. Unfortunately, not knowing English, and especially regex, it is very complicated for me.
Using the language already in MB but associated with a button that then generates a loop between all the tracks seems much easier to me than having to learn a language from scratch.
By the way, MB's language is so simple that with a little practice you can really do a lot of routines.

MusicBee Wishlist / Buttons with scripts in MB language
« on: May 18, 2024, 07:05:45 AM »
Currently scripts can only be used in virtual fields.
It would be nice if scripts could be used as functions to be associated with buttons.
You could edit tags without using virtuals.
1) change the color of a text based on a comparison.
2) delete text again based on a comparison.
3) add text to a tag
4) copy part of a tag to one that already exists
I think that as examples would suffice, but so much more could be done.

MusicBee Wishlist / Music Explorer Bio
« on: May 07, 2024, 10:14:59 AM »
In music explorer I don't understand the point of putting the artist picture next to the biography, it could be done without it.
In that space one could put the whole biography with a possible scroll bar to the right. In my opinion everything would be cleaner.
The artist image, however small, is already there at the top.



I would see it better this way

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Crossfade option from bottom panel
« on: April 09, 2024, 02:19:04 PM »
Even if there were a button, mb only recognises the change if the track is restarted and then the next track.
You can make sure that in a given track there is no fade-out.
Tag settings--> settings--> choose disable crossfade.

Questions / Re: centering the Artist name in the Music panel ?
« on: April 09, 2024, 02:13:24 PM »
@ Phred
They are always centred. Simply because with square characters you give them the instruction to start printing the title from a precise point which is always that point, it does not matter whether the text is long or short, it starts from that point.
If it is longer, you simply will not see the excess characters to the right.
Thanks for the clarification. What you're saying makes sense. I do want to point out that in your screenshot, the line in question is not centered. Which is why I mentioned it.

You're right too!!!
It is not really a centring but an alignment to the left from a specific point.
In fact the title in my screenshot is not centre-aligned also because, as you said, the title would be moved each time according to the number of characters and honestly it wouldn't look good either.

@ Monkey: a character alignment would not be needed for the way MB is designed now. In that case the centred would shift according to the number of characters and would never be aligned.
What would be needed would be the possibility to insert tags in absolute positions. Basically you create the display mask from scratch, putting the tags in the desired positions.
I used a lot of shifting from the left with filler characters and you can see it, in the image, with "disco 01" always stays above the list of titles.
I'm afraid this is currently the only way to align texts in MB.

I did this: I created a virtual field and inside it I used a square typeface and put as many as needed to centre the position of the title.
Code
{color: 40,40,40}▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉▉{color: 255,255,0}$Upper(<Artista album>) - $Upper(<Album>)$Upper($IsNull(<Sottotitolo Album>,," - "<Sottotitolo Album>))$Upper($IsNull(<Volume Serie>,," - "<Volume Serie>))  (<Anno>) $Upper([<Raggruppamento>])
The first colour command gives a colour identical to the background so that the squares are not visible.
Then I gave a colour to the text and then all fields that make up the title.

Someone who's good at RegEx might be able to come up with a virtual tag, but even with my limited knowledge I don't think a "multi-function" virtual tag can be accomplished.

You are right!!!
Also because with the automatism it can't work, because when it is deleted from the title tag it is automatically also deleted from the subtitle tag.
I found the preset in advanced serarch & replace and it works but, as mentioned above, then it also deletes from the subtitle tag because the data takes it from the title.
I think this has to be done manually with a cut & paste or with a script that does the cut & paste itself.
Sorry I didn't think it through before writing

I'm fairly certain this can be accomplished using the Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools plugin. If you have questions about its use, or need help with getting it to do what you want, please post the questions on the plugin's thread and not here.

It may be that advanced search & replace AT & RT can do what I want, but I would like it to be done automatically with a script in a virtual field.
The reason is soon stated. I import tags automatically from different sources, and I would have to remember each time to take the function from the menu and activate it on a selection.
Anyway thanks for the suggestion I will study that function, also because I think it is the only one that has the probability to do what I want, better than nothing.

Hi

I would like to do something a bit special.
In many titles there is other information in brackets, for example: radio edit, mix, album version.
I would like to move that part to another field (tag).
I was able to move the text with this command: $Split($Split(<Title>,"(",2),")",1)
But then I can't delete it from the title tag.
Example: Stranger In Moscow (Tee's In-house Club Mix)
In the title tag must remain: 'Stranger In Moscow' while the remainder must be moved to a tag (Subtitle): Tee's In-house Club Mix.
Why this?
Often these subtitles are very long and I would like to display a few sizes less than the title to fit everything in one line.

Thanks to those who can help me out

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Start / End Times
« on: March 20, 2024, 05:42:58 PM »
I had made about the same request a while ago.
My request was limited to a checkbox with the option "only in playlist".
There are songs that last up to 8-10 minutes or more and they don't fit in a playlist that long, while simply listening to the single song or the entire album it would be better to listen to it all.

I haven't properly digested the above, but if what you are looking for is a way to avoid seeing the "extra artists" in your tab there:

Then on the filter panel to your left, you can look for a field called <artists: artist> and display by that.

A thousand thanks
It was such a trivial thing that I didn't think about it.
Sometimes you get lost right in the classic glass of water (I don't know if it's also used in English)
Thanks again

I don't quite understand. Please try rephrasing.

Also, if you can support the above with screenshots, that would help a deal.

I'll try!!!
When you insert the song in the artist --> multiartist field you can also insert all the members who performed the song.
Example:
Abba (artist group)
The King Has Lost His Crown (song)
To be included in the multi artist
Arranged By [Strings] – Anders Eljas
Bass – Rutger Gunnarsson
Drums – Rolf Alex
Guitar – Lasse Wellander
Lead Vocals – Frida
Oboe – Jan Risberg



I would like instrumental performers not to appear in the artist list





As you can see in the images, the drummer and all the other performers of the song appear in the list of artists, thus creating multitudes of artists who perhaps only made the arrangement of that song.

But only those whose role is only artist or interpreter would appear.

It is very useful as information but should only appear as track info in the appropriate panel.

I hope I've been exhaustive.

At the moment, inserting an artist into multi artists, whatever their role appears in the artists view.
In the artists view, only the one who has the main role of the album or song should appear, inserting him, in fact, as an artist.
