MusicBee Wishlist / Re: More than 7 lines in track information panel
« on: March 21, 2016, 05:48:57 PM »
Yes, write directly on the lines without wasting a virtual tag is a smarter option.

Now, I'm willing to meet Steven in the middle by allowing each field the option to split multi-value tags into rows instead of the current "all-or-none" approach.

I'm agree, this would be a good solution.

Looking in the forum some way to replace the semicolon as separator in the field content, I've found this:

With the $Replace function you can create a "false" field to replace the semicolon, keeping the original contents of the field.

Yes I'm aware of that recent change, but if I understand correctly this affects the line wrapping. If I want different fields to appear on different lines, I can't do it by putting them in the same box in the configuration panel, unless there is a way to put line feed characters between the fields, ie: <Composer>\r\n<CatalogNumber>). But I don't think this is possible...

You can create a virtualtag containing all the fields you need, separated by a semicolon.
Something like this: Virtualtag = <Composer>;<CatalogNumber>
Add this field to the panel, and if you select line wrapping, MusicBee shows each of the fields from the virtualtag on a different line.
I don't know if this works with all fields, but what I've tried (<editor>, <Artist: remixer>) works perfectly.

The solution (splitting multiple tag values into rows) didn't help me out in the end unfortunately because 1) I use the same delimiter (semicolon) to separate different composers already and 2) the album reviews I save in <COMMENTS> often make use of this delimiter.

But yes, if the fields contains a semicolon, also separates the field content.

(Sorry if I can't explain too well, but I'm spanish and my English is far from perfect)

You need to add the disc number for each CD in the tag Disc number.

i have enhanced the panel so it shows a small album cover by the album name - it doesnt change the total space required by the expanded panel

This is great! Thanks.

Fixed, thanks again.

Thanks :)


Track 1

Track 2

3.0 I think fails on any multi CD where the CD number is >1 ie Disc 1 of 3 it detects track 1 correctly, but Disc 2 of 3 or 3 of 3 it fails to detect Track 1 and says it's missing, if the Disc Number  is left empty it also seems to work

After reading this, I've checked my library and yes, except for a couple of cases that I will review better, this happens when the album has more than one CD.

Exactly the same problem here.

The info about he missing track (In Spanish in my program)

Track 1

Track 2

I'm using v3 and the last updates.

Questions / Re: Split Custom Tags

So, the best suggestion I can give you is to keep your custom <Musician Credits List> and create autoplaylists that queries that field where you might add that the field contains John Coltrane and Tenor Sax.

Thanks, I'll try this option.

Thanks you for your help.

By the second column I guess you're thinking of the artist/guest artist/performer/remixer options?  That is unique to the artist splitter, and actually puts guest artist, performer, and remixer in their own special tags, not in the artist tag.  About the closest you could come with a custom tag would be something like Artist (Instrument).

Yes, this is what I want to do, and as I supossed that`s only possible in the Artist tag.

I don't see why not.  You will have to find a proper delimiter character and use the $Split function to achieve what you desire.

I've tried it with $ Split function, but not exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm using a custom tag (Musicians Credist List) for difrentes musicians involved in an album. Different values are separated by a semicolon (John Coltrane / Tenor Sax; Elvin Jones / Drums, ...). This splits the tag in different rows, one for each artis / instrument.
With the function $Split (<Musicians>, /, 2), I get "Tenor Sax; Elvin Jones / Drums, ...", because it can not distinguish the values separated by semicolons.
Anyway this is a good information, and I'm sure It will be useful sometime.

What I'm trying to achieve is to sort and search all musicians not only by his name but also by his instrument.

But you can not get everything ;)

Questions / Split Custom Tags
« on: March 13, 2016, 11:52:11 AM »
Just a question:
Is it possible to create custom or virtual tags that can separate the content in rows and columns as does the Artist tag?
I created custom tags for musicians (Credits Musicians List) and credits (People Involved List). Both can be splitted in rows, but I wonder if they also could have two columns, one for the name, and one for the role,or this is just for the Artis tag.

Regarding Music Explorer.
As said, I also love the layout, but I would go a little further, and this is what I would like:

For me, information about Top Tracks is not a priority. Yes, sometimes I use Track Rating, but never the Play Count. Of course I'm not saying it should be eliminated. I would prefer that this column was optional, that could be used, but not always shown, occupying a space that I would use otherwise.
I imagine the Music Explorer panel as an option to display all the information possible about an album that I have stored in their tags.
I use the right sidebar to show biography and images of the artist, and tracks lyrics.

But I need more ;)
- I have defined custom tags for musicians (musician credits list), album credits (people Involved), and album producer, so I would love to see this information.
- Show the Album editor.
- Show the notes I've added to the album.
- Personal links related to reviews of the album.
In short, any tag that I've added to the album.

And where would this information be shown? Well, I see three options:
- That these tags were available for display in the right sidebar.
- Set the space occupied by the Track Rating as a panel similar to the right sidebar, with the ability to display any tag.
- My favorite: keep the right sidebar and add a new panel (something like the right main panel) and show between the two all the information.

I know it's too much, but these are my dreams. And dreams, perhaps ...

Questions / Re: Locking/Pinning Tabs
« on: March 04, 2016, 04:41:33 PM »
First, thanks for this incredible piece of software. I am very impressed with the customization options in MusicBe.

I have my music in various folders grouped by their main genre (Blues, Jazz ...) So my main use for tabs are filters that separate the music according to their paths. Each tab is assigned to a genre of music (depending on the route), and I would like to have the ability to assign different icons on each tab representing its genre.
Would it be possible?
In other programs, the main library can be divided into "collections" (each collection is a node that can be asigned to a genre), but in MusicBee there is only one library, and I don't know if there is a better way to get this division that I'm doing with tabs.

PD: Sorry for my bad english, and thanks to Google translator.
