MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Display multiple genres instead of "+"
« on: April 08, 2013, 10:26:12 PM »
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

 WIth the vertical trackbrowser next to each other there will be a big gain in overview :) I really miss this feature from Itunes!

+1 For the Idea of Xanht :) great mashup :)

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: waveform seekbar
« on: October 13, 2012, 10:12:03 PM »
in fact i have already built a waveform generator but havent decided where to put it...
please steve, add it as a plugin or just as a standart option.... It will be great for finding parts or "drops" in musicmixes, and even in songs :)

would really like to the waveform seekbar; it was always a very important thing I miss from foobar

Thank you for your answer...
I think thats my personal opinion that "electronic music" is more like an genre-category than ambient music :) another example would be the genre "Future Beats" which would fit (in my opinion) in the genre category "general electronic music" aswell as in "Hip-Hop & Beats"...there are so many overlapps :)

The problem with MP3TAG is that i woul have to open the programm everytime I change some genres because not every song in my library has a genre and many songs in my library are tagged wrong :/ Also I'm importing many music everyday so it would be still very time consuming to use mp3tag...
