Questions / All Artists is showing All Albums - Help
Last post by Gal90116 on Today at 06:37:17 PM   |  Started by Gal90116
Hi, I have 3 questions.

1) Can I remove the lines when it says how many albums there are with every artist in the "Left main panel". I want it to only show the name of the artist, without the number of albums it has. If so, how.

2) When I click on All Artists in the "Left main panel", it shows all the albums of all the artists. I know that in the "Main panel" if you choose Artists instead of Albums, it will show all the artists, but then it will also do that when I click on an artist outside of the All Artists option.
Can I do that when I click on an artist, it shows all the albums in the "Main panel", but at the same time, when I click on All Artists, it will show all the artists, and not all the albums. If so, how.

3) Can I do that it doesn't show all the letters in the "Top panel". I want it to not show anything there. If so, how.

Screenshot added that pretty much covers all 3 questions.

Help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
If this is not intentional and those files could also be moved when re-organizing, I too would like this see it happen.

Hello hello, how did you get the artist and song name to scroll?
Questions / Re: WASAPI Exclusive Volume Level

My volume level when using WASAPI Shared and DirectSound are the same.
Direct Sound= WASAPI shared so correct

the volume level drops substantially
No, never experienced this.

3 output modes can be controlled by the Windows volume control.
If you are using USB, the answer is yes because UAC (USB Audio) features volume control regardless of the protocol used.

If you upload a track (or part of it) so other peole can hear what you're hearing, that may help.
Questions / Re: Map my hierarchical music file structure to MusicBee
Last post by Zak on Today at 10:04:10 AM   |  Started by BillM256
With pictures...

Edit Preferences > Layout (1)
Make sure Computer is checked.

Then in the left-hand panel you can browse the folders hierarchy:

Also right-click and check/uncheck Manage Folders > Include Files from Sub-Folders to suit your tastes.
If you have a lot of tracks, you may not want to display everything when you click a folder that's high up in the hierarchy.

There are other ways to display folders via the Panels Configuration, by adding a Folder Browser or Library Explorer there, but they give the same result overall.

When displaying in the MusicBee navigation panel, I'd like exactly the same hierarchical presentation. Despite hours of trying to make this happen, all I have is a flat display of files organized alphabetically by name, which is unhelpful with almost 5000 songs.

Note that the Computer node and Folder Browser just serve as a filter for which albums and/or tracks are displayed in the main program window, from where you can select what to play or queue. If you want the folder hierarchy to be the main thing that MusicBee displays, that isn't gonna happen because MusicBee isn't designed that way.

If you're a software engineer with many hours invested in organising their music collection, I'm going to assume you also have all of your files correctly tagged with artist, album and track details. In that case, you'll probably learn to like MusicBee more by letting it present your music based on that metadata, rather than wrestling with it to achieve a preconceived idea of how it should look. Once you get used to how all the different views work, and then get stuck into setting up some custom and virtual tags, there's no looking back.  :)

An important warning/suggestion:

It is advisable not to load different classical releases that contain the same classical works in one and the same Picard session.

So if you have e.g. three different albums that all contain Daphnis et ChloƩ, do not load them together in the same session, but make sure you load and process them separately, and close and restart Picard in-between these sessions.

If you do process them in the same run, there is a possibility of getting inaccurate results.
The reason behind that is a bit complicated, but it has to do with the way the Classical Extras plugin uses cache memory to store release and track relationships.
This cache memory can sometimes be shared/claimed between the different loaded releases, which can prevent getting correct results for all of them.
Questions / Re: Is there a month and day tag?

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

Go to Preferences > Tags (1) > Under "custom tags", click Define New Tags... > Under one of the things called "label" name it Date, then under "formula" put $Date(<Year>,yyyy-MM-dd) and save it.

Then enable Date as a display field instead of Year. Windows does mm/dd/yyyy by default, and this will force everything to yyyy-mm-dd for the "date" as long as everything is properly filled out. All you have to do is enter this in the Year tag in the metadata.
