Bug Reports / Replay Gain being reapplied
« on: October 01, 2017, 01:40:16 PM »
I have observed two issues with regards to the "send to volume analysis" feature:

1. same tracks are being process again and again if I do a "select all" in the library and do volumen analysis

2. "on album basis" is ticked even if I untick it in previous attempts. I remember that older versions of MusicBee would leave the ticks unchanged in subsequent attempts.

Am I missing anything?

Yes, this is a known issue when syncing with most Android players.  They don't interpret multiple artists well for scrobbling.  Not really MusicBee's fault, but it would be nice it if we could tell it to replace artist with Display Artist when syncing...

I am glad I am not alone in this. So, as of now, I will stick to Picard for tagging and MusicBee for album art, genres and volume levelling.

Questions / Auto-tag by album feature puts a semicolon instead of 'feat'

I use Picard for most of my tagging before the music is imported into MusicBee. However, sometimes I use MusicBee's album search to tag my tracks. I never felt there was a problem with it until today when I realised a song that I was playing through PowerAmp on my Android phone that should have the artist 'The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk' showed on as 'THE WEEKND DAFT PUNK'. So, it didn't link to the song on the website too, just a blank entry. I looked at the tags of the song by importing it into Picard and realised that when I find the info for a song through MusicBee there's a semicolon added in the artist field instead of 'feat.'

I am sharing images to clarify what I mean. This is for the song 'My First Kiss'. First image is when tagging through Picard, second image is after tagging through MusicBee and then importing into  Picard to see the results. Please confirm if it's the way MusicBee is supposed to work or if it can be improved.

Picard tagged

MusicBee tagged

To confirm, my issue is not with the info that MusicBee sends to when scrobbling, but the info it sends to the phone when syncing which in turn sends the info to when scrobbling.

Beyond MusicBee / Happy New Year!

Wishing all this awesome community and its software makers a Blest New Year! May all your wishes keep coming true.

Thank you, Steven.

Previous versions of MusicBee had this. It was useful. Please bring it back. I used to use the following options to weed out the duplicates:

track difference < 10 seconds

Without the third option it's easy to end up deleting tracks that are different recordings/versions of the same song.

Alright, here you go again:


Library settings:

Pop after deletion said: Unable to save file: <filename>
This pop-up has become way too common. So I am guessing that it's related to the current problem.

Pastebin is not working. This other website wouldn't take files with PHP unless they were in PDF or .doc. What do I do?

I don't have 'playback follows cursor' enabled. I reinstalled MusicBee and I realised the problem is gone until I started editing my settings. Then I removed the "MusicBeeLibrarySettings.ini" and ".bak" from the Library folder and the problem resolves again. So, I am going to paste the settings and Library settings:

Library Settings:

Also, I am setting this pop-up after the deletion of the current playing file way too often:

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Cycle through skins

Not as easy as your suggestion, but you could always look at the Wiki for images of the skins. 
Just scroll down a bit from the top of this link

Fair enough. If you guys do find a possibility in the future though, please consider it. Thank you.

I have set the settings to highlight the current playing song at 'source'. So, usually it's a song playing from the main library. I would press shift+del, with the playing song highlighted, and a pop-up would ask me for confirmation and I would press 'ok'. The song would delete and the next song (which would be the next song in the 'now playing queue') would start playing, along with the highlight jumping to that song.

Now, nothing happens after the deletion. All playback stops.

MusicBee Wishlist / Cycle through skins

Either through a button or a hotkey. Currently, it's a pain having to go through the menu to find the skins and keep choosing the next one until we find something we like.

Thanks in advance for the continued good work, guys.

Hey Steven and team,

Before v3, when I deleted a file that was playing, the player would usually start playing the next song in queue. It did refuse to do that once in a while, but I wasn't worried about it.

But with v3, it never plays the next file after current file is deleted.

version: 3.0.5909

Currently it only shows album, file size and length of play. I would love to see number of tracks total as well. Thanks Steven.
