Re: More tag fields for listeners of classical music [#14963]

Back to the tags thing, I am for supporting a wide variety of tags (date I say all the tags in file(s)). I use MM as my primary catalog and DAM (Digital Asset Manager) for my music. I'm sure I'm not the only one. As such, I would like to have every tag in a file available in the database. I know tha...

Re: MP3 Gain Basic Understanding

Some of your answers are just the way it is in Media Monkey. You could edit the tags in a different software like MP3Tag. In terms of playing tracks with different gain tags and then changing them, you do have to keep in mind whether you are playing tracks from the same album or different albums. If...

Re: Portable

I'm thinking of setting up a Portable Installation for an external hard-drive I can use at work independent of the desktop. Am I correct in assuming that the database associated with the portable install will store paths in a relative fashion? i.e. If I plug the HD into multiple pc's and the drive g...

Re: Magic Nodes 4.0 w/ 313 masks & real GUI (2010-05-21) [MM2+3]

Thanks for your help with this (and in the bugs forum). I tried the registry replacement, and I see how that could be made to work, but another thought crossed my mind and I wonder what your thoughts would be? Can I use that unicode character as a delimiter with the "split-by" option in the MagicNod...

Re: Multiple Genres in Multiple Tags

Actually, it seems that the way that some of the tagging guides are written suggest that the appropriate way to tag files is to use multiple tags rather than multiple values in one tag. I had found that at one time in another forum related to tagging, and no other software has had a problem with the...

Multiple Genres in Multiple Tags

I have found a problem with the default Genre Node (and one using Magic Nodes) where the same genre shows up multiple times (see image below): http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4003/4648620843_58fe7fc15f_b.jpg The source of this seems to be that I have mp3 files with multiple genre tags in the header, ...

Re: Magic Nodes 4.0 w/ 313 masks & real GUI (2010-05-21) [MM2+3]

Well, I should add that it looks like the flaw may be with MediaMonkey itself and not your script. When I made the built in Genre node visible, I ended up with the same "problem" that I showed with my Magic Node. Perhaps you'll see what the flaw is, but you may not be able to actually fix it. I will...

Re: Magic Nodes 4.0 w/ 313 masks & real GUI (2010-05-21) [MM2+3]

I am at work at the moment, so I can't easily send the db at the moment (although I can try later) OK, until you get a chance to send me your database file, you could do next: open Options dialog box and turn on "Allow editing of SQL queries" and "when expand field nodes", then collapse mentioned G...

Re: Magic Nodes 4.0 w/ 313 masks & real GUI (2010-05-21) [MM2+3]

What I end up with is duplic genre nodes depending on whether the genre tag is the first genre tag or second genre tag. I really have no idea how you got that. It is theoretically impossible since related SQL query is using DISTINCT keyword, something like SELECT DISTINCT Genres.GenreName FROM Song...

Back at the end of January I posted a question with respect to problems I am having with Multiple Genres in my Nodes that never got answered. I recently installed Magic Nodes 4 thinking it might work better, but my problem still persists: My files occasionally have multiple genres that show up in mu...

Re: Magic Nodes 3.0 w/ 245 masks & real GUI (2009-09-08) [MM2+3]

Files that have multiple genres are accomplishing that right now with multiple genre fields (as opposed to using one genre field with each genre separated by a semi-colon). for example a song from Nine Inch Nails Ghosts Album may have the following: GENRE = Rock GENRE = Electronic With my MagicNode ...

Re: Magic Nodes 2.7 w/ 170+ masks & real GUI (2009-06-29)[MM2+3]

I am curious if there is a way to set up an album node so that "The, A, etc" are ignored for sorting. Yes, there is a way, but you need to modify the script file by yourself. There is the IgnoreArticleDict collection from 744 till 746 lines and you should add the next line: .Add "ALBUM", True Perfe...

Re: Magic Nodes 2.7 w/ 170+ masks & real GUI (2009-06-29)[MM2+3]

I am curious if there is a way to set up an album node so that "The, A, etc" are ignored for sorting. Magic Nodes does this (seemingly by default) with Artists based nodes, e.g. The Beatles are sorted as Beatles. Can this somehow be done with Albums? Right now all my albums that start with The (e.g....

Which, no offense, is a horrible workaround.

Re: Get Ipod to use Album Artist instead of Compilation?

Thanks for the reply! But... I was hoping Media Monkey had come up with an ingenious fix for the poor quality of ITunes/Ipod. It wouldn't be the first time. For instance, what if Media Monkey were to allow you to substitute Album Artist for Artist when synchronizing with a device. That would be a n...
