Questions / Re: Are custom tags temporary?
« on: November 24, 2020, 07:54:53 AM »
That depends. Do you have them assigned to an actual tag field, or set as "save to MusicBee database only"?

If the latter, I suggest using a second custom tag to copy them into the files (just to be sure there's no data lost in the process).

You can check what's actually stored in the files using the Tag Inspector.

Thanks for reply. So a "save to MusicBee database only" tag works only for the current library? I checked using "Tag Inspector" and I did not find the custom tags I made nor their values.
The custom tags values are still in the previous library, but not the new one.

Questions / Are custom tags temporary?
« on: November 23, 2020, 06:10:23 PM »

I've made custom tags for some songs, and when I moved those songs to different library I noticed that the custom tags were gone. Is it something I did wrong or is it supposed to be like that?



If there was 5 tracks in first disc, and 7 tracks in the second disc and if the track is #8 of the total of the album.

In tagging, should I write track #8 of 12 disc 1 of 2, track #3 of 7 disc #1 of 2, or track #3 of 12 disc #1 of 2?

it should work now:
unzip and replace the existing musicbee application files

Thank you very much it is working now.


As you can see, only track number is in the result, but the title is not there.

Sorry there is more to the characters involved in the field <Artist>.

It is actually : "Artist (feat. Artist)"

And then I put: $If($Contains(<Artist>,"feat")="T",<Title>,)             <----- This doesn't work.

Oh this was a typo from me. But in the software it is written as it should be.


I am using the function $Contains to search for a certain word in the field <Artist>.

So if I wrote this in the artist filed : Artist with Artist

then I wrote in Virtual Tag $If($Contains(<Artist>,"with")="T", <Artist>,)

that does not work.

Ugh.. so they are gone, I have to do the Regex all over again...

So is the back up library option different from Saved Settings?


Questions / Failed to restore virtual tags and organizing presets...
« on: August 05, 2020, 06:33:11 PM »

I've recently had to re-install windows. I have backed up the libraries manually. When I installed MusicBee, I've created new library and I put the "existing library" option destination to my backed up library. However, none of my previous settings (Virtual Tags, Organizing Presets, ..etc) were restored.

Why did that happen? And is it possible to get them back?


@psychoadept Thanks. But I still don't understand. Just to be clear, the "permanently adjust volume" exist in the "convert format" tool. It is not in the "analyze volume" tool. So how do they go together?

And I still don't know if the "analyze volume" tool adjusts the volume or not.

What is the difference if it analyze the track only or the whole album?

Questions / Album cover art, and artist's picture.
« on: July 06, 2020, 08:10:09 PM »

In a track's artwork tag, I usually put the track's single cover art as primary, and I include the album cover art if exists. However, when I do that, the single cover art shows as the album cover art in MusicBee, unless I put the album cover art as the track's primary artwork.

Is there a way to make the album cover art shows without setting it to primary?

Also, can I add artist's picture to the library?

@Bee-liever Okay but I want it to be, which is not the same format as my Windows.

@Steven thanks for reply, but where do I use the virtual tag?
