Music Bee

I am a long time, paid, registered user of MMonkey and have appreciated it, usually over any like application. Strictly FYI, I have grown really weary with all the continual unfixed bugs in MM related to tags in the library and other related matters, that I started looking around again. Fortunately ...

Re: Tracks are cut short.

Thanks for the response. It turns out that the 'Remove silence at beginning/end of track' in Tools-Options-Output Plugins-etc. was selected. I decided to try another forum search and found the answer. It seems like it must not have been selected in the past, though. Maybe it gets selected by defaul...

Re: Add a Column Choice of "LAST MODIFIED" file date

The timestamp in MM is DEFINITELY not a last modified date. For example, I had to rescan all the files in a folder (for the millionth time!) and all the time stamps are showing the exact moment they were rescanned. That is USELESS!!!

Any Way to make MM actually work?

I am a paid user of MM Pro 3.1 and I am just frazzled to the point of dumping MM altogether since they just cannot figure out a way to keep things sync'd between playlists, the library and the actual WinExplorer files. I spend more time trying make a playlist correct, for example, after editing an m...

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implications.

nohitter is not correct. I don't think I have ever found a CD on which all the tracks were the same volume. Granted, producers general level the volumes to each other for relative proximity of sound level, but all the tracks the same volume db level? Not.

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implications.

Thank you, Rusty. It would be nice to have the option, as you suggest, to show one or the other (or both) method of displaying a track volume level. Like MMan reiterated, what standard does MM use to determine a + or - db level? Also, it would have helped some if the column header said something lik...

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implications.

It would be nice if all tracks were 89db. I am not being rude, but you are wrong about all this. I asked earlier if anyone knew whether or not any MM techs read this forum. Anyone know?

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implications.

Thanks. I assume, then, that you are a MM tech. If you are not a MM tech, then I still (politely) think you are wrong. It just doesn't make sense. In either case, why can't MM provide that explanation somewhere in its help file? And I'd like to know if they base it on the current standard of 89db or...

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implications.

If that were the case, why not just show the actual db level (i.e. 89db or whatever)? So I think you are wrong. I don't really care how much MM adjusted a file to get it normalized, I just want to know what its actual db level is. How hard would that be? Also, look at the numerous files not having b...

Re: Add a Column Choice of "LAST MODIFIED" file date

I try to avoid auto-rescan and even manually clicking a choice to rescan files. It takes forever and if done while doing something else in MM everything slows to a crawl. I have dual 2.5 processors and 4gb RAM.

I use MyComputer mode mostly. Never Library mode and frequently Playlist mode.

Re: Please explain the 'leveling' concept and its implications.

I am frustrated :x with the whole volume leveling world. I have just spent over three hours reading about "db" levels as indicated in various MP3 apps, like MM and Goldwave, etc. I checked over 30 links from a general Google search - many are several years old; I checked the volume (no pun intended)...

Re: Add a Column Choice of "LAST MODIFIED" file date

Thanks for the comeback. I'll have to go back and test Timestamp vs Last Modified again. Could be I am not checking back with MM often enough to truly test it. I have 'update timestamp' checked but MM has problems in general with data updates without exiting, clearing any related caches, etc. Wish t...

Re: Add a Column Choice of "LAST MODIFIED" file date

The timestamp does not reflect the 'last modified' date and time as in Windows Explorer. I think the MM timestamp is meant to serve some other purpose?? Why would a user NOT want to always have the current modified date for files in MM? If it is meant to serve as date modified, then it doesn't funct...
