Questions / Re: Unknown artist for every song
Last post by Bee-liever on Today at 06:51:25 AM   |  Started by DieHardBarrett
Oh... I removed the "contributing artist" field for all of my songs (in windows) since it was causing an issue with my phone app which i use more.
What Windows displays as "contributing artist" is the "artist" tag.
So to get around your phone app not working correctly, you have removed the "artist" tag from all your files.

Are you using the Advanced Search and Replace module of the Additional Tagging and Reporting Tools plugin?
If so there's a preset to remove the track number from the title and you may have it set to automatically apply.

Just noticed an issue where MB isn't allowing me to enter song title tags that start with a number without automatically removing the number. For example, if I try to tag a song as "17 Days", after I hit enter MB automatically removes the "17 " and the track title is displayed and stored as just "Days". Similar titled songs in my library are fine with no issues. It seems to only be an issue when I try to edit/change a title to have a number at the beginning. Had trouble coming up with anything searching previous posts so creating a new topic for this. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Just a little friendly advice from someone who has been tagging a digital library for 20+ years.  Use it or don't - I'm not here to convince you, just inform you.

Bug Reports / Re: Musicbee overlaps my taskbar

What version of MB are you using? (Help > About)
How was MB installed? (Store, Installer, Portable)

You could reduce the MB window a little to expose the taskbar.
You could try setting the taskbar to auto hide.
A screenshot might also help here.

Questions / Re: Hotkey question

You can't combine two functions into one hotkey.
There is a hotkey for queue next.
So you could hit one hotkey and then the other.

I see what you're saying and i agree. But there is no "Artist" field in windows. Its either "contributing artist" which is a feature of the song, or "album artist" the artist that released the album. So according to Windows and my phone app, i am tagging my files correctly. It appears musicbee is interpreting the feature of a song as the main artist. Thats why i figured there was a setting i could change to correct it.

There is not a way because everyone uses artist without difficulty.

If there's a problem with your phone app reading the standard, widely-used artist tag,  IMO you're better off figuring out what the problem there is and finding a solution for it and then tagging your files correctly than you are mistagging your files to get around it.  In the long run.

It detects "contributing artist" as a feature and puts it after "album artist". Removing "contributing artist" fixed that. On musicbee I've corrected the now playing and popup to display "album artist" instead. The only thing left to fix is "artist biography". Is there a way to set it to "album artist biography"? Lol if not, ill live without it.

No, not really. Artist is a very standard tag used by almost all music software. What kind of problem were you having with it?
