Hi,
I am new to this Forum and want first to say hello :-)
I use MB since several years- great software :-)
But....
Since a few weeks it behaves in a funny but unfunny way.
When I edit any tag of a track, then MB adds automatically unwanted Genres.
It seems, that it doesen't matter which tag I edited.
The automatically added genres are almost always "Singer-Songwriter". In the last track it added also the word "test" which I wrote into another field to test the behaviour. But it wrote in genres "test!!!".
When I cancel the edit, the edit is canceled, but the unwanted genres remain. When I edit the genre then manually, then MB additionally adds again the automatically added genres. So in the last tested track the genres are now "test; Singer-Songwriter; test; Singer-Songwriter; Singer-Songwriter; Blues; test!!!".

I don't get any error message. Also in the error-log there is no actual entry.
MB version is 3.4.8033 (just updated).

What can I do??
Thanks for your help :-)
Bettina

Hello,
because nobody answered me, I deinstalled MB and reinstalled it.
>>The problem didn't appear again :-)

But: Now I installed and used again the plugin "Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools" and... the problem appeared again. Now with other words / symbols in other fields than before, but same behaviour.
So, the problem seem to be caused by the plugin. But I really need this plugin!
What can I do now to solve that behaviour??

Since this board is for reporting validated MusicBee software bugs, and your issue now seems to be related to a plugin, it would be best to report it in the plugin topic. Accompanied by as much as possible detailed information.

You have probably enabled a preset. Slowly scroll through the list of presets and look for any that have a check mark in the box to the left. That indicates that the preset is being automatically applied.

As for whether or not you need the plugin, only you can decide. As a point of information, it is the most widely downloaded and used plugin in the MB family.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.

for the info for future users:

1. if any asr preset is ticked the color of warning text at the top of asr window is changed
2. to easily see all ticked presets (and only ticked presets) tick the checkbox in the yellow frame on screenshot:

@boroda- this is a great help. How long has this "hidden gem" been available? I've been using ASR since the beginning and never knew about this.

Thanks!

Well, at least for me, it has been hiding for however long it's been there.

I'm going to copy that tip over to the AT&RT thread.
