Is there a way to use some advanced search options? For example I want to find for which albums I have less than X tracks placed in Library (how many I have, not the total tracks of the album) or to locate all tracks that have different <Album Artist> and <Artist>
I looked at the Wiki and the Gui but couldn't find anything on that direction.

Use the drop-down to the right of the magnifying glass in the search box to get to 'custom search.' From there you should be able to set up the criteria you need.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.

For the different album artist and artist search, you might need to supplement with a virtual tag.  I.e. $If(<Artist>=<Album Artist>,same,different)

The virtual tag option is what I was looking for but also I hadn't realized that there are some more advanced displayed fileds as well. Thank you both!
