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


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 / View list artists and multi-artists
« on: February 21, 2024, 05:39:57 PM »
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.

Questions / Song playback
« on: January 17, 2024, 10:26:51 AM »
I've noticed a change in the way I play songs sequentially.
Whichever way you set playback, this happens:
1) playback of all tracks from the same album
2) I move, while listening to the first album, to another without selecting anything.
3) once the song is playing, go to the first song of the album I was just looking at
4) plays the song and then stops
In practice, if you don't stay on the album being played you can't listen to it in its entirety.
I have MB version 3.6.8778
In the playback preferences I always left the following checked: clear list and play album only.
In fact, when I select the first song of the album in the playlist it puts all the songs from the album but when you go to another album it adds the first song to the queue, plays it and then stops.
In previous versions it doesn't seem to have this behavior.
Before saying it's a bug, I ask, does this seem normal to you?

Bug Reports / Mb loses references to the main song in ASX files
« on: January 05, 2024, 04:31:34 PM »
I have created some collection albums using asx files.
When editing a tag, when you select multiple songs to edit at once, mb erases all references to the main song.
Basically delete this: <ref href="" />.
While everything else seems to remain in place.
I'm using version: 3.6.8758

Questions / File asx
« on: January 03, 2024, 09:11:05 AM »
I created an album of songs of which half of the songs were already present in the library.
To avoid having duplicates I created some asx files inserted in the album folder among the mp3 ones.
Everything OK. The song is performed from the actual one in mp3 but...
The <param name = "Custom 1" value = "exemple" /> command is not read. I also tried to put the name, subtitle aulbum, that I gave to that custom but nothing.
For the duration of the song you need to take the minutes, multiply by 60 and add the seconds. The obtained value must be inserted into <param name = "Length" value = "244000" /> and is found to be 4 minutes and 04 seconds.
It all becomes very difficult and time consuming to do.
It would be nice if starting from a song there was a command like: Create asx file. With the possibility of directly inserting new tags to identify another album.

MusicBee Wishlist / Same song in multiple albums
« on: December 27, 2023, 03:27:18 PM »
An idea popped into my head, I don't know if it's easy to implement but I ask...
It often happens that a song appears in several compilations or anthologies of the artist.
There are songs that appear in the artist's first album and in several of his anthologies and also in collections by various artists.
It would be nice if music bee had multi position, like it does for multi artist.
In the end you would have a single file which however appears in different positions, how many bytes would you save?

MusicBee Wishlist / Bio Language
« on: September 28, 2023, 10:13:51 AM »

In this thread we talked about the language of biographies.
Wouldn't it be more convenient to eliminate all the automation?
After all, for the images of artists you often find images that have nothing to do with the artist, not even remotely.
The biography is always in English and sometimes even here it is incorrect or cannot be found.
To search for biographies in my language I created a link in the internet preferences<Artist>/+wiki and the biography is displayed in my language if present. But I always have to copy and paste it into the bio panel.
It happened to me that the image of the artist found was that of an industrialist of the same name as the artist searched for.
My request: can't all the automatic systems be removed?
And perhaps insert a button, a menu that by clicking it downloads the biography manually, as happens with the covers.
And while we're at it. Why is the artist image in the music explorer not linked to the image in the artist image panel?

Questions / Visualizzazione artisti
« on: September 26, 2023, 09:57:18 AM »
I don't know if it's possible to do this!!!
Artists: Albano & Romina Power
I'm viewing Al Bano in the music explorer and in the multiple artists separator, when he performs with Romina I put Al Bano & Romina Power.
Only the discs in which Al Bano appears are displayed to me and not those in which he appears paired with Romina which, in my opinion, should be in the "Appears in ..." section
If in the multiple artists separator I divide the two artists, viewing Al Bano however puts them all together, both those he performed alone and those paired with Romina.
In summary: in the first case he creates three distinct artists. Viewing Al Bano or Romina Power I will not see those produced together.
In the second case the two artists are created by mixing all the albums produced together and not.
Is there a way that, if it only displays Al Bano, it will show me the albums produced together with Romina Power in "Appare In..."?

Questions / Artist image display
« on: September 19, 2023, 04:03:26 PM »

I have a problem with the artist image displaying.
For example: the Italian duo Wess & Dori Ghezzi. He visualizes Dori Ghezzi to me, instead I would like him to show an image of the duo.
In Edit sort value the first value is Dori Ghezzi, Wess and finally Wess & Dori Ghezzi. I thought this was the reason why when I play one of their songs it shows me Dori Ghezzi and I tried to change the order by putting the full name of the two first.
It's not possible to do that. Every time I save and reopen the editor it always comes back in alphabetical order.
However, sometimes he takes the first, sometimes the second and sometimes both.
Isn't there a way why it displays the singer you are viewing?

Questions / IF command
« on: August 06, 2023, 11:04:51 AM »

I'm trying to make a simple comparison.

$If(<Year>=<Original Year>,true-value,false-value)

But it doesn't work and it's always true or false depending on the comparison if it's the same or different.
Am I doing something wrong?

Questions / Saving custom tag data
« on: July 02, 2023, 06:00:27 AM »
i had to transfer music bee to another pc. Tried to back up everything and everything seemed fine. Instead, I realized that the data relating to the custom tags were not recovered.
Where does music bee save this data?

MusicBee Wishlist / Start/end position only in playlists
« on: May 28, 2023, 09:28:48 AM »
I realized that trimming the beginning/ending songs isn't always useful.
For example: a song should be cut at the beginning, because it has a particular beginning, only in a playlist but with a single listening you would like to hear it in full.
It would be nice to have a choice beside the two start/end setting fields that says: only in playlists.
By flagging it, those cuts will only be active in the playlists, in other cases always.

MusicBee Wishlist / Enable multiline in virtual tags
« on: May 05, 2023, 08:43:38 AM »

It would be nice to have the . (multilines)
For example:
Artist: <artist> cr/
Title: <title> cr/
Song length: <length> Year: <year> cr/
Etc. etc.
With a single field you could create a set of information that currently requires many virtual tags.
This could be placed in a panel, for example, the track information. You could create entire information masks with a single virtual tag.
