Beyond MusicBee / music suggestions
« on: September 21, 2017, 01:41:06 PM »
perhaps MB forums isnt really the right place for this but I know anyone who cares enough to be on these forums is a true music fan .

ive been building my library for some years now and for the first time ive hit a block.

i like early 70s late 60s rock/prog rock/metal  (zeppelin, sabbath, journey, yes, deep purple)
anything british invasion era (queen, beatles)
southern USA country (skynyrd, lost dog)
folk (bob dylan)
and sometimes indie.

what have you got for me folks.

anything lesser known is best, but all is appreciated.

Thanks :)

Questions / library size limit.

Is there a limit on how much MB can handle?

Either as number of tracks or file size.  Just had this thought the other day as my collection is nearing half a TB and is on about 22,000 tracks.

MusicBee Wishlist / Roman Numeral Recognition for Capitalisation Tool
« on: August 30, 2017, 03:16:21 AM »
in every edition of MB to date the auto tagging tool "capitalise" reads roman numerals as a word as leaves them looking like so:

Iii, Ii, Xvi, etc.. when they should be  III, II, XVI respectively.

many artists self title their albums with only roman numerals to distinguish between releases (Chicago is a prime example) 

The capitalise tool is one of my favourite features and I use it a lot. hence my post about it.

Questions / HELP, metadata and tagging related.
« on: April 05, 2017, 02:48:55 PM »
So this has happened to me multiple times now and I'm stumped as to how to fix it.

I just got Jethro Tulls entire discography. (23 albums)  and loaded it into my musicbee database and the thing was a disgraceful mess. no artist/album/year sometimes even the track name was missing.   

so I deleted it from my database and went back into file explorer (where the discography is neatly ordered by album sub folders)  and manually entered all the missing tags myself and saved them to the original files then put it all back into musicbee.... where it showed up in its original shitfight form.

I went back to file explorer to confirm the tags were written and saved to the file correctly and they were.
I tried changing the filepath slightly in an attempt to trick music bee into thinking they were entirely different files to no avail.

how do I fix this?  why isn't music bee recognising the updated tags? and how is it remembering the messy old tags?

Bug Reports / song change notification when minimized overlaps
« on: March 30, 2017, 12:53:22 PM »
the notification that pops up whenever a song changes and the main player window is minimized malfunctions after it has displayed a second time and every time there after.

the track information from the previous notification remains and the new information is superimposed over the top making any and all track info illegible.

version 3.1.6275
