The Bing update to artwork search is so useful! Thank you, Steven.

Tips and Tricks / Hotkeys: Starter list
« on: May 29, 2020, 05:32:58 PM »

Musicbee has insane amount of customizability. But beginners might get confused as to where to begin once they have imported their music into the player. Following is the list of hotkeys I have been using from years for some of my most used functions. I hope old and new users find something useful here. The focus is on single-handed use. You will find the Hotkeys section in Preference (Ctrl+O).

General: Goto Playing Track at Source
 Ctrl+Enter (change from 'queue last')

General: Restart MusicBee

Playback: Play Next Track

Playback: Previous Track

Player: Volume Down

Player: Volume Up

Rating Now Playing: 3 stars
 Alt+3 (change from 'rating selected tracks: 3 stars')

Rating Now Playing: 4 stars
 Alt+4 (change from 'rating selected tracks: 4 stars')

Rating Now Playing: 5 stars
 Alt+5 (change from 'rating selected tracks: 5 stars')

Rating Now Playing: Toggle Love (on

Rating Now Playing: Unrated
 Alt+0 (change from 'rating selected tracks: no stars')
 Or Alt+- (change from 'rating selected tracks: unrated')

Delete all the remaining hotkeys for the group of 'Rating Selected Tracks'

Send To: Clipboard (selected files)
 Ctrl+Shift+C (settings of what is copied here can be edited in 'Tags (2) > "Send to clipboard" tags')

Note: I changed the hotkeys of the defaults of 'change rating of selected' into 'change rating of now playing' because it's easy to screw up the ratings of tracks if you have some files selected and press the wrong button without meaning to. You can change ratings of multiple files, instead, by selecting them and editing their properties.

I don't use hotkeys for 1 or 2 stars because if I dislike a track so much I delete it from my library.

I'll just leave the screenshot here of what happens when I right click on the album and 'search internet for picture':

Thanks for looking at it, Steven!

I used the your update, but the artworks still don't work. I realised, it's not working for any album that has 'Various Artists' as the album artist.

Version: 3.3.7453

Alright. Thanks. Hopefully it will autoresolve in the future.

Hi, Steven. Can something be done about this? I have installed the incremental updates you've given for other bug fixes and still many popular soundtrack artworks are not being downloaded.

Hi, Steven and team.

I recently cleaned the artwork from all my tracks and let Musicbee research for them as I play the tracks. I observed that some albums that MB used to find the artwork for before are not being searched now. All the sources like Fanart, iTunes, etc. are active.

Example albums whose artwork is not being found:
Breaking Bad - Season 1
Batman: Arkham City
Pulp Fiction
Kill Bill: Vol. 1

Version from Windows store: 3.3.7367

Bug Reports / Re: Replay Gain being reapplied
« on: October 08, 2017, 09:50:10 AM »
Pinging back: this problem of the already tagged tracks being volume analyzed again is becoming more pronounced. I'd like to know if I can do something about this. Most of my recently added tracks are having this problem.

1. So what do you thing could be the reason why particular tracks are being reanalyzed unnecessarily? If I only select them and start analysis, they aren't ticked, which is good. But if I select them with multiple other tracks, the problem track gets ticked again, while the others are unticked.

2. 'Long time ago' would be around less than 2 years. But if that's how you want to keep it, cool. But I am sure there are users who won't like album gain at all.

I have observed two issues with regards to the "send to volume analysis" feature:

1. same tracks are being process again and again if I do a "select all" in the library and do volumen analysis

2. "on album basis" is ticked even if I untick it in previous attempts. I remember that older versions of MusicBee would leave the ticks unchanged in subsequent attempts.

Am I missing anything?

Yes, this is a known issue when syncing with most Android players.  They don't interpret multiple artists well for scrobbling.  Not really MusicBee's fault, but it would be nice it if we could tell it to replace artist with Display Artist when syncing...

I am glad I am not alone in this. So, as of now, I will stick to Picard for tagging and MusicBee for album art, genres and volume levelling.

Questions / Auto-tag by album feature puts a semicolon instead of 'feat'
« on: February 11, 2017, 04:13:59 PM »
I use Picard for most of my tagging before the music is imported into MusicBee. However, sometimes I use MusicBee's album search to tag my tracks. I never felt there was a problem with it until today when I realised a song that I was playing through PowerAmp on my Android phone that should have the artist 'The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk' showed on as 'THE WEEKND DAFT PUNK'. So, it didn't link to the song on the website too, just a blank entry. I looked at the tags of the song by importing it into Picard and realised that when I find the info for a song through MusicBee there's a semicolon added in the artist field instead of 'feat.'

I am sharing images to clarify what I mean. This is for the song 'My First Kiss'. First image is when tagging through Picard, second image is after tagging through MusicBee and then importing into  Picard to see the results. Please confirm if it's the way MusicBee is supposed to work or if it can be improved.

Picard tagged

MusicBee tagged

To confirm, my issue is not with the info that MusicBee sends to when scrobbling, but the info it sends to the phone when syncing which in turn sends the info to when scrobbling.
