It's about Album highlighting.
Which gets triggered by MB only looking at the first track of an Album

sorry, i guess i should sleep a bit more.

sorry, do you mean that highlighting is applied only to the 1st track of an album (e.g. using "tracks" view) or that the info for highlighting rules is taken only from the 1st track of an album?
if the former, then it's really unexpected.

i've renamed it to $CharN(code,times)

hiccup, could you update your topic on the "tips & tricks" board and give a short description of the main purpose of this function (that it's strictly a service function)?

Sure, but tracks are being grouped into an album.

and can be dynamically (on the fly!) regrouped

My Tip&Trick formulas are working on that principle too, so I am sure this could also be done by MusicBee itself?

it's beyond the scope of my 1st post. it's just a technical question: what must be done by mb natively, what must be done by plugins, by VT formulas, etc.

glad to help

i saw your huge formula and guessed the most common application of this function. so, maybe it's worth to rename it to something more short until it's too late? e.g. $CharSeq() or $CharN()?

hiccup, i think the problem is that there are actually no "albums" in the MB library at all, only tracks. you can define/redefine what MB albums are, but this only means that all tracks of an album must have the same "common album" tags (a subset of all tags).

both FLAC and MP3 have one important advantage over any other lossy format. if a new (device) player requires quite a new audio format, then FLAC can be converted to any format (because it's lossless), and support for MP3 will hardly be canceled by any hardware in the near future. also, 320kbps MP3s sound quite nice to me personally.

no problem:

use $CharSequence(hexadicemal_char_code,decimal_number_of_times)

also, i've extended ASR \@char[[]] function to accept (optional, decimal too) second parameter.

your question is very unusual, and any "solution" will be just some workaround anyway. i'm aware of only 2 commonly supported "timed tags": synced lyrics and subtitles for video files. but even they are very limited in the ways they can be used and displayed (depending on the player).

yes, cue-sheets can be used for something similar, but you will need to edit the cue-sheets manually, and in practice, it seems that only the "title" tag can be different for the parts of a single file. also, the "title" tag can't be multi-line (if it matters).

it's maybe a bit unclear how any "track duplication" can be helpful in your case. the matter is that every track, or "track" (in the case of .asx file), has "start time" and "end time" in its properties. not so easy to use all this stuff, but using mb tag editor is anyway more comfortable for tag/start/end time changing than manually editing a cue-sheet in a text editor.

Steven, it seems that some text of this message is not localizable (it's the deletion confirmation dialog of duplicate manager, mb 3.5.8657 P):

correct me if i missed this text in my localization.

yes, but why would you need a cue-sheet in this case? cue-sheets support a very limited number of tags per "track". and it would actually be several tracks. you can just use a playlist and display any tags of a played track or "track" in most players.

of course, there is no need to duplicate one track multiple times just for this purpose. for example, mb supports .asx files as "shortcuts" to real music files, but every .asx file can have its own tags.

this is an example .asx file that i've created using mb duplicate manager (but it's a very inconvenient way of creating .asx files. it would be much easier to manually create .asx files and add them to the library):

<asx version="3.0">
  <param name="encoding" value="utf-8" />
  <title>MusicBee redirection file</title>
    <ref href=".\01 Despertar.mp3" />
    <author>Aisha Duo</author>

Bug Reports / Re: Save to Folder path under CD RIP settings not working
« on: September 15, 2023, 05:31:28 AM »
1. enter existing "root" path (without any <tag> templates) in the "save to folder" field.
2. enter any templates (<tags> separated by backslashes if needed to create subfolders of the "root" path) in the "file naming" field.

check your options for "monitored folders": edit> prefs> library> monitored folders.

either mb will auto-add all new/previously removed tracks to the library, or you will have to manually add new tracks to the library.

well, i understand that it's an "international" forum (i only mean that not all forum members speak english natively). sorry, if i misunderstood you.

the problem is not this your post. the problem is that there have been too many very silly and stupid posts (though related to different stupid things) in the last few months.
