I've started using Auto AlbumDJ and I noticed that if an album I'm listening to isn't completely in the now playing list (i.e. not all tracks are there yet), when I choose a genre and select apply to album, only the tracks that are currently in the now playing list will get tagged. Is this intentional? Ideally, when I select apply to album, it should apply to all tracks on the album regardless of whether or not they are currently in the now playing list. Classifications seem to work okay. It's just genre I'm having trouble with.

Is there a way to have the background of this script come up a different color so it works with dark themes?

Also, when enabling the node for this the pane opens up in the bottom window but there it lists 1 genre.. I thought this script allowed you to quickly add multiple genres and moods to a file or files?

Is it possible to download genre through http because i'm under heavy university firewall?

Thank you for clarifying this. This sure can be done but I'm afraid it would need quite some scripting work... maybe this is something for a version 2.0. Right now I'm not sure whether and if yes when I will add this.

Will do. Thanks for the suggestion! I actually thought I had already done this :D .

I suggest updating the below function as indicated to avoid errors when no valid current node object is available.

Code: Select all

Function UpdateCC
  If Not (SDB.MainTree.CurrentNode Is Nothing) Then
  	If SDB.MainTree.CurrentNode.Caption = "Classification Changer" Then
  		LoadClassChanger(SDB.Objects("CCNode"))
  	End If
  End If
End Function
and suggest you always check for valid object when checking or referencing the state of the current node.

Hey,
1. Great. :)
2. Ok, maybe a value is painted green if all tracks have it assigned. Maybe it could be blue if only some tracks have assigned the property. So, if you check a blue value, all tracks get it. That's a common behaviour in many applications. For blue values a little tooltip that shows the count of the elements the property is applied to, would be also useful.

An example:
Genre "Pop" is assigned to 10 of 30 selected tracks. So, the field would be blue and the tooltip could say 10/30.
This could be helpful because then you know whether nearly all tracks have this property or just a few have it.

I hope it's a bit clear what I meant.

Christoph wrote:Hey,
what a great script. Thank you. :)
I have two suggestions:
1. Would it be possible to open the lists for tempo, mood and so on when the track has been loaded? So you wouldn't have to click on the label.
2. Would it be possible to use this script on (multiple) selected files and not only on the current playing song?

Thanks again.

Christoph
Glad you like it! :)

1. I will add options that allow you to choose which lists should be opened by default in one of the next updates.
2. This should not be much of a problem for a single track. I will probably add it in a future update :).
Could you give some detail on what you'd like the script to do for multiple selected tracks. Which values should be highlighted if the tracks have different values?

If I expand the genre and occasion sections, the ones I already have do display in green but if I try to select more to add or one to remove, when I click Save Changes, nothing happens.
This is most probably a bug in the script as I have not tested it with unicode characters. I will look into this for the next update.

To do that you'll need to take two update steps:
1. Select all the genres any of the artist's track is tagged with and apply to artist. --> they are all green now
2. unselect all genres you don't want (red --> delete). Apply to artist again.

That way all tracks are only left with the genre(s) you want.
I was trying to it that way but only genre from playing track changes green/red. Others change from white to yellow. No way to turn them red.
The second step turns them red. You have to give them all the genre you don't want first, and then go back and select that same genre and apply to artist again.

Step 1. > Save
Step 2. > Save

You must save in between steps.
