Questions / Easiest way for Genre / Genre Category / Subgenre Tagging
« on: April 07, 2021, 09:16:03 PM »
Hello Everyone and sorry for my bad English,

i would like to know what is the easiest way to tag genre / subgenre and category. Is it possible to automate this process? so that I enter subgenre, and genre and genre category are entered automatically?
Or is it possible to tag songs genre via discogs? I have around 3000 songs which need tagging. And I would like them to have at least genre and genre category.
What would be the best workflow?

Thank you very much!

//Edit: okay I solved it myself. I deactivated autobackup and restarted the computer. I guess the baseline file was being used by the autobackup. :)

Hey Boroda,
I just deleted 4000 genre-tags by accident. Luckily I made a tag backup before. But When I click on "open", after selcting the backup, nothing happens... Does it work in the background and needs a lot of time?

After a long wait I just got this error:

Thank you for your answer. Yes, I did everything I wrote and the things you suggested. :) didnt help. But I found the solution. The library organisation rules included a wrong old path! When I fixed it, everything worked again . Not sure if this is the intended behaviour or a bug!


I recently moved my music collection to another drive and used "Remap Music Folders" to tell MusicBee about it. The music plays properly. When I try to edit a track, however, after I press OK, I'm told "File not found at expected location" followed by the file name. The "Modified Date" field shows that the track updated, but it doesn't reflect the changes that I made. I've confirmed that the files are at the location that the edit window's Properties > Location" expects to find them.

I  just copied this thead below, because my englisch is not good. But I have exactly the same problem after relocating my library.

I am on vacation right now and have a lot of time for tagging :) A fix would be awesome!!

Best regards

4) and of course the option to RIP the soundcloud stream :) :) this would be too amazing ;)

Hi Steve!
I was very excited when I read about musicbees new soundcloud search update on my favourit blog ( NICE WORK!!!!

Some suggestions:

1) It would be nice to have the soundcloud search integrated in the normal searchfield (not within the field "Internet").  --> Maybe like a soundcloud section under the regular search results
- When I search for a song and realize that I dont have it on my computer yet, I could still play it directly from the search window (It would be nice to also have youtube results listed there).
- Also, one could check his harddrive collection vs, available songs of the artist

2) It would be nice to use the autoplaylist feature of soundcloud which is very very very  good in my opinion. Maybe it could be integrated in musicbees autoplaylist (like the lastfm autoplaylist feature?)

3) It would be nice to add ones soundcloud profile to play the favourite songs (connected to ones account) via musicbee

I'd would be perfect if i could choose if i want the + or if i dond want it.

i'd would be nice to have the + option for all the other tags too, and not just for the genre tag

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Color Coding Feature for Songs
« on: November 02, 2012, 02:16:49 PM »
i'm not opposed to doing this as text colours, but just as a suggestion - would it be better (and less ugly/distracting) is any matches were displayed as an coloured icon in the left side of the main panel where the playing track speaker displays (like the category icon in MS Outlook)? That way you could also have 2 colours displayed in the icon where there are multiple matches

+1 for this, i think this would be the perfect combination of a) a clean layout and b) the advantage of  colourcodes even if there are muliple colour rules apply.

In my oppinion dots would look better than the MS Oulook "round" squares but I like the genreal idea :)

In my oppinion, the advantages of a coloured song is that you can highlight ONE proporty of a song:

If  I had a track marked tempo=fast=255,125,0 (orange); mood=energetic=255,0,0 (red); occasion=workout=255,0,255 (magenta)
would MB show all 3 colours as a gradient, pick only the first colour or do a blend of all the colours that hopefully wont match a colour that is already tagged for something else?

With too many colours in one song or with a blending of colour :
- you could get confused with the meaning of many colours
- you would not see directly which colour the song has, so you wouldn't have the effect of seeing directly why the song is marked.
-With many different colours in one song you would have the same problems as with the written tags: Too much information for a fast recognization of  the "special property" (like slow BPM, no artwork) you're looking for

But I realize that it would be great to have different "colour-rules" at the same time but that there would be interferences for songs which would apply for 2+ colourrules.

Possible Solutions:
- Have a colour priority list, so that a song, even if it applies to two colour rules would one show one colour rule dependet on the priority list
-  colour the tags if you had more than one colour rule applying to the song (A song which is slow would have the BPM tag-field coloured blue; if the genre is IDM, than IDM would be coloured red)
- To make some Tags BOLT instead of two colours, so that a  song which is slow would be completly blue; and if the genre is IDM, than IDM would be written in BOLT)

Also I would like to say that i really like Gregs mashup with the Drop-down Menu

Potential usefulness aside, this has the possibility of making MB look very ugly!  :)

if youd had custom colours you could make them even look nice in the skin. I get you're point, but even if it would be ugly, for me, usefullness is more important than a good-looking skin.

While I think labeling tracks with colours may have some uses, using them for mood, rating, genre etc would only be duplicating tags that already exist (except less so, because you'd have to know that Red=aggressive, Green=chilled).

yes you're right but the good thing is that you'd see the chilled songs (green) in a playlist songs very fast. Instead of scanning the genre column you would just see direktly that the next few songs will be chilled songs. If you browse through your music, a red coloured song would directly catch your attention.

It would be an addition visual way of displaying tags/or whatever, but in much more direct way.

On top of that, it would be very inovative, or at least I dont know any program which has this function

 I think it would be a very great way of adding more information/more organisation in a library without adding new text.

... imagine if the songs in the main panel would have colours you could:

-  colour them for a mood, for example  red=more aggressiv music, green= more chilled tunes,  etc.
- you could highlight songs as a reminder to listen to them more often/to skip them
- making differnt colours for different genres to have a quick overview in you library
- could be a good aid for tagging (for example all songs without implemented lyric = red)

I think the best idee would be the colouring of the font itself in the mainpanel

... and the bit of space gained used for the wavebar/spectro à la mikebo, itunes and winamp

it looks very nice with the spectrum/wavebor in the now playing panel
