MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Playlist Specific Sorting
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:57:10 AM »
I don't know if this would fix this situation, but here's what I did to make the playlist export to a USB stick in the order I wanted.

I first brought up the playlist, then made it sort on screen the way I wanted (I clicked the Track heading to sort by track name for my Roland electronic drum kit which has limited screen space - see another post of mine about track naming), then right clicked on the playlist name and selected "List" -> "Update Play Order". The numbering for the list changed so the first track alphabetically was 1, and the next time I synced the USB it sorted by track. This should make any sort order become the new order for that list.

Have a look at these pages. I think you will find them really helpful...

These might be useful too, but the above links have several examples, so start there.

Thanks! That was the problem. I was running 3.0.x

I appreciate your wisdom and patience!

Thanks, that seems to be having trouble too...

I tried to validate just the
$RxReplace(<Title>,"[^a-zA-Z 0-9]",)
and it seems to have trouble with that. I am wondering if the
elements of that should be separated by , or | or similar, but am not having any luck with alternatives.

Thanks! That makes sense, but I'm having trouble implementing it.

I've tried replacing "<Title>" with the exact supplied text, and also with the text surrounded by ( and ) brackets, then < and >. Unfortunately none of these pass validation.

Supplied text
$If($IsMatch($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,)),"^.{15,}$")="T",$Left($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,)),7)-$Right($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,)),6),$RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,)))

(Supplied Text)
$If($IsMatch(($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))),"^.{15,}$")="T",$Left(($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))),7)-$Right(($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))),6),($RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))))

<Supplied Text>
$If($IsMatch(<$RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))>,"^.{15,}$")="T",$Left(<$RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))>,7)-$Right(<$RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))>,6),<$RxReplace(<Title>,”[^a-zA-Z 0-9]”,))>)

Again, thanks for your help!

Questions / Shortening file name in playlist
« on: July 27, 2017, 06:38:54 AM »

My Roland drum kit will only play MP3 or WAV files that have a 14.3 file name format or shorter.

When syncing to a USB stick, I have figured out how to shorten the file name to the 14.3 character format using this formula;

This currently shortens songs like "Like, Wow - Wipeout (Live).mp3" to "Like, W-(Live).mp3"

I am using some characters from the left and some from the right to avoid duplicates when I have both a studio and a live version.

However, I would like to also filter out special characters like brackets and inverted commas so I get more of the filename - e.g "Like, Wow - Wipeout (Live).mp3" to "Like Wo-t Live.mp3"

Any ideas?

I used the following pages to get me this far...

Any help appreciated!

After being frustrated with various other music players for the longest time, I am very very happy  ;D with MusicBee 2.0 (betas and now final release).

Thanks for all the work you've put in and the wonderful product you've made.
