Boroda resides in Russia and from all reports things are a little bit unsettled there at the moment

as for all this shit happening in Russia/Ukraine

I was referring to the Moscow concert hall attack, but either way I'm glad you're doing OK.

Questions / Re: "Band" Tags, Album Artists, and Albums Being Split UP
Last post by hiccup on Today at 07:59:27 AM   |  Started by kawika
Welcome to the forum kawika

'Band' is an ancient description of what all software that I know of call 'album artist' these days.
(for ID3 it would be the tag TPE2)

And that tag is intended for keeping the tracks of an album together.
For band members you could use 'performer' tags, and for 'guest' artists you could use the 'guest artist' tag.

Questions / "Band" Tags, Album Artists, and Albums Being Split UP
Last post by kawika on Today at 05:57:26 AM   |  Started by kawika
Hello,

Trying out MusicBee for the first time, as I'm ditching MediaMonkey and their horrible data corruption problem.

dbpoweramp adds a Band field to each track, so I've been using it to list the musicians that are part of the song. This is especially useful when guest/featured artists are involved (e.g. Peter Gabriel guesting on Sheryl Crow's cover of one of his songs).

The problem I'm running up against is that the Band field is being transposed onto the "album artist" tag in MusicBee. This is having the effect of splitting albums up within the "artists" listing in MusicBee when looking at my library. In a specific case, I've got three listings for Pearl Jam's Vitalogy  album because Jimmy Shoaf plays drums on one, while Jack Irons plays on another, and Dave Abbrruzese plays on the rest of the album.

Is there a way to force the album to show as one album in the listing, disregarding the different band members? My collection is almost at 55,000 tracks, so moving the band field isn't an easy solution and I'd rather not lose all my data entry for artist accuracy's sake.

Thanks!

Questions / Scan Folders for New Music: Collapse folder tree ?
Last post by jlm86 on April 22, 2024, 11:13:37 PM   |  Started by jlm86
Each time i go to scan for new music, the folder tree is always expanded out, and is difficult to trace down into these
 sub-folders.
Q. Is there a way to collapse the folder tree during the "scan for new music" ?

Thank you

Portable Devices / Bug When Syncing Playlists Containing ASX Files
Last post by tjinc on April 22, 2024, 09:38:53 PM   |  Started by tjinc
Only spotted this when testing sync to a new phone. This relates to syncing a playlist that contains one or more ASX files.

The correct audio file (e.g. the FLAC file that the ASX file links to) is always copied across as expected but the playlist file is not always updated and can remain with a reference to the ASX file. This seems to be linked to the 'on-the-fly conversion' setting:

  No on-the-fly conversion:
  Playlist file on device retains reference to ASX file.

  Options 'convert to MP3' and 'only convert files not already formatted as MP3':
  Playlist file on device correctly updated with reference to MP3 file.

  Options 'convert to MP3' and 'only convert files with a lossless format':
  Playlist file on device retains reference to ASX file.

  Options 'convert to MP3' and 'convert all files':
  Playlist file on device correctly updated with reference to MP3 file.


Tested on MusicBee ver 3.6.8878 P
Initially noticed when syncing to phone but testing done using local folder configured as virtual device.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Some QoL Changes for Tag Editor

This is a combination of suggestions and fixes that's simpler to consolidate here. Would be appreciated if any of this is worth considering.

1a. Pressing Up/Down to Enable Predictive Search - There isn't a way to enable the predictive search box on an active tag without having to backspace or type in more letters, which either specifies or generalizes terms within the query and can show different results because of it.

      1b. Infinite Scrolling - Specifically to scroll from the bottom of the tags back up top, and vice versa, with the arrow keys. I make use of arrows often for easier searching, so it'd be convenient for me.

2. Highlighting Error - The images here will show what I mean.

This image shows the first result highlighted. If I press up, it'll go back to what was initially typed.

The problem is that the first tag is still highlighted, meaning that when I press down from there, it'll skip to the second result.

It would also affect the search box if it shows a single  tag, which would not display again if you scrolled back even once.

You might want to post this in the Bugs forum.

4. Saving Highlighted Tags with Enter - If I set Enter as a hotkey to save, and attempt to edit tags in both VTE and Main Panel Tag window, it wouldn't save if the tag box is still highlighted. This doesn't happen in the regular floating tag window, where pressing enter twice (once to remove the search query and preview changes) works fine.
