Questions / Re: Best way to apply ReplayGain to entire FLAC library
Last post by lgcas on Today at 03:39:36 PM   |  Started by lgcas
You should never select your entire library and do anything all at once unless you're sure you know what you're doing, which does not appear to be the case.  You should do it in groups.
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but would this be groups as in albums (for both track and album gain)? I have a lot of tracks and, although I am not opposed to doing it album-by-album, it would take a lot of time; just don't want to mess anything up.
Thanks again.

Questions / Track Information Formatting
Last post by voodoopunk on Today at 03:03:27 PM   |  Started by voodoopunk
Hi All,

I'm currently running 3.4.7691 P on Windows 8.1 and after looking at the threads below, I'm attempting to smarten up my track information:

https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=30472.0
https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=24595.0

These are my track information details:

Code
{font: Segoe UI Symbol;Regular;7} {font: default}{contrast: 70}<Title>
{font: Segoe UI Symbol;Regular;7} {font: default}{contrast: 70}<Artist>
{font: Segoe UI Symbol;Regular;7} {font: default}{contrast: 70}<Album>
{font: Segoe UI Symbol;Regular;7} {font: default}{contrast: 70}<Year>;{font: Segoe UI Symbol;Regular;8} {font: default}{contrast: 70}<Comment>;{contrast: 70}<Genre>
{contrast: 70}Track $If(<Track#><10,$Split(<Track#>,0,2),<Track#>) of <Track Count>;{contrast: 70}Disc <Disc#>$If(<Set Subtitle>!=""," ["<Set Subtitle>],) of <Disc Count>
$IsNull(<Artists: Performer>,,{font: Segoe UI Symbol;Regular;7}" "{font: Noto Sans Cond;Regular;9}{contrast: 70}<Artists: Performer>)

I believe this is all okay. Although I'd like <Title>;<Artist>;<Album> on one line but any content that's too long in any one of the tags doesn't wrap, even without the font markup and the max row span on 99.

The problem I'm having is my existing works in some instances, but in others it doesn't. See the examples.



Am I doing something wrong/daft? Or is this expected behaviour? Or is what I'm after just not currently possible?

Thanks

Questions / Re: Best way to apply ReplayGain to entire FLAC library
Last post by frankz on Today at 03:03:25 PM   |  Started by lgcas
You should scan for album and track gain.  If you mainly shuffle, you should have musicbee use track gain when listening, but it doesn't hurt to have the album gain data in the file in case you ever want to use it. It's a non-destructive process and doesn't change anything about the audio data in the file so there is no harm in scanning.

Musicbee will go through whatever files you select album by album using the tags you use to define an album.  

You will need to scan new tracks as they are added to the library.  You will not need to rescan old tracks.

You should never select your entire library and do anything all at once unless you're sure you know what you're doing, which does not appear to be the case.  You should do it in groups.

There's been extensive discussion here on ReplayGain. The answer is it's all up to you. My suggestion is to read up on it and then come back if you have any confusion.
From doing some reading, it seems as if the best way to apply ReplayGain to an entire library (for shuffling, my main use case), is to use track gain. The only thing that I am confused about is album gain. Would this be something where I can select my entire library and MusicBee knows what songs are in what albums based off of tags? Or would this be a case of selecting each album and scanning them individually?
Also, if I were to add more songs to my library, do I need to rescan the entire library or just the new songs that I added?
Thanks!

Bug Reports / Re: Shutting Down
Last post by richard127gm on Today at 02:27:17 PM   |  Started by richard127gm
Hi. Sorry for initial lack of details. I'm running 3.4.7628. Normal install, windows 10 v10.0.19042. Using Direct Sound output.

The length of time before shutting down and bringing back to focus, I can reliably use MB is about an hour. Anything longer always delivers a shutdown. I don't know whether this is linked but MB also sometimes locks up and becomes unresponsive. I can get around this by switching to compact view from the Windows taskbar and back again. Although it hasn't done this in a while.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Checkbox for excluding/ignoring tracks
Last post by robertkjr3d on Today at 12:00:34 PM   |  Started by helgatheviking
As a newer user of Musicbee, that is also used to Itunes-Checkboxes, I've found this forum item.  
However, what I'm curious about and a little upset about is that:
If musicbee doesn't have the checkbox like itunes? Ok  We need to use the rating/love ban system.  I got that, sure.  No problem.

But when Importing from Itunes then, why didn't it take the unchecked data, and have those songs come over as 'Banned'?

What happened to me is I started playing my catalog of music with musicbee.  And it started playing music I've 'unchecked' years ago.

Other than that, the import worked nicely.  The layout is mostly been what I'm used to. 
This is what I would add to a 'Wishlist'.  Let me know if this needs to be a separate item.

Questions / Re: customized field for a song in playlist
Last post by psychoadept on Today at 08:27:03 AM   |  Started by Doron Zur
I don't think that'll work, because there's no way for a tag to know what playlist you're viewing the track in.

No problem. Likewise, thank you for the quick fix.

Tried the patch and works great.

You could try the Wifi Sync android app
Doesn't one need to have one successful preview or sync before the WiFi app will sync?
Thats what I say to keep the message simple but it depends how far in the process it gets
