Questions / Toolbar Button set save?
« on: January 04, 2024, 03:31:05 AM »
I did use the search option and didn't see a post let alone a recent (with in the year) speaking of this, I assume it has been but...

Is there a way to save my selected icons and toolbar set layout separately or can it be saved with the screenshot save or ??

It would be great to be able to create shareable toolbar icon set layouts and really awesome if they were resizable similar to fonts.

Questions / Corsair keyboard volume rocker to control Music bee alone.
« on: January 06, 2022, 05:21:40 PM »
Bought a corsair keyboard [K95 Elite, uk layout with 6 Gkeys] assuming the volume rocker would control at very least the foremost application ignoring all else,  or at least could be set in iCue4.

Odd thing is it has controlled musicbee once or twice but only for a short time, 3 or? volume changes then reverted to system wide ... most strange.

Can anyone enlighten on this, is it possible to use the rocker to adjust ONLY musicbee excluding all else, or to assign a key change to swap media key control to musicbee (displayed via a colour change/flash when selected/controlling muscibee) the with a secondary click revert to system wide control (again displayed by a colour change upon key select then, and so on?

I've asked at corsair forums...... 6 months ago.

ps I'm aware of iVolume2 and not a fan of app upon app potential clashes with iCue4 already installed.  Although this method works I'd like to avoid .

'm also aware of Eartrumpet but as far as I know thats unassignable.

Any help appreciated.

ps That'll teach me, should have just bought an old Griffin powermate or Aimos usb volume control knob....  :-[

Questions / ISRC & Cat Number Fields
« on: May 16, 2021, 07:53:49 PM »
Any chance of getting dedicated Catalogue Number Fields (as well as ISRC) now the 2 have been fully separated by all online stores and most if not all standalone ID Tag tools?

Thanks for the best audio player, ever, though.

As title, I own a massive collection of music having spent over a decade converting my CD's, Tapes & vinyl to FLAC.

Is there a solution to "help" Musicbee form being over whelmed and crashing and could it be installing multiple portable versions of MusicBee on each drive that contains the music? or will this clutter & cause  issues with their linked appdata files or will they remain "happily" independent?

I've tried so many apps and MusicBee is by far the player I prefer to use (I do use "quick access" apps like Boom, OceanAudio, VU Player etc for a quick n dirty album or track play but of course prefer (preferred until crashes occurred) to use MB for longer listening sessions.

Side note, I recently migrated a bloated 2TB harddrives content to a new 4TB drive and in doing so rearranged the drives letters - I then deleted the old playlist and reset monitored folders and rebuilt the playlist, ever since I've had issues.

Is there a way to save my players layout, installed add-ons etc but safely reset MusicBee without loosing the layout (which took days to decide upon). ?

or should I just reinstall completely? or run multiple Portable additions to handle portions of my library (via Genre seems the logical way forward) literally having 3 or 4 portable installs covering grouped genres ie Jazz, Funk, Soul, Blues, Funkadelic etc then another portable MB covering Punk, Rock, Psychedelia etc then another covering Reggae, Dub etc and so on??

or is there a practical way to still have TerraBytes of FLAC files running under 1 instal - maybe no playlist and just have it playing from monitored Locations (harddrives/folders)?

Could it simply be a case of running as admin or run elevated beyond "normal"?

I'm open to suggestions.

if the info is useful, I have 16GB of DDR4, i58600k (6core) and a 1070ti with O.S (Win 10) running from an M.2 + 8 internal drives. (no need to be specific about the (too many) external enclosed harddrives for back up).

The 8 internal drives are :- 6 SATAs to the motherboard & *2 reclaimed drives connected via pcie slot - these 2 are not monitored by Music Bee. Only the 3x4TB drives listed below.
3x4TBs Western Digital Blues for music @5400rpm,
1TB Western Digital Black (for games),
1x 2TB 7200RPM for "other Media" &
1xTB WD Blue for General "work"/storage,

+ *2 crappy scratch drives (ripped out of sky boxes) on a pcie card, 1st used to hold rip's in process of tagging etc the 2nd for downloads of apps & stuff so my "main" drives don't see much read/write busy work other than when accessed by an Audio player.

Dunno if that gives a useful picture.

TYI for any advice especially from those who have the same experience and found the "cure" of a large collection.

As the title.
Is it possible to lock a background to a particular skin so that when I return to it I don't need to re-select the image/save/restart MBee repeat when I'm in a different colour/background mode (usually the next day)?

Can it be embedded (no idea how to) into the xml skin itself or is there an option I'm missing?
