I was blown away with how powerful MusicBrainz Picard is and decided I wanted to join the community and use it to clean up my library. I have a gigantic collection of music from the Final Fantasy series and my problem I’ve been running into recently is that with a lot of releases being Japanese only, combined with many of them being compilations of other releases in the same library, when it comes across a rare Japan only release, MusicBrainz can’t find the Japanese album with the “Look Up” function because I have it in English, and when I use the “Scan” function it pulls up all of the other albums that the tracks on the compilation album are sourced from.
I got a little frustrated, but found the plugin that adds a cluster as a new release and figured I’d start contributing by creating English translations of the Japanese releases and I seem to have done that incorrectly as @CyberSkull pointed out in several edits. If I would like to add English translated metadata for people to use on Japanese albums, how do I best do that, and more importantly, how do I search for and find the Japanese album when I don’t have the Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji form of the release titles?
Lastly, if I wanted to create an album in Picard that doesn’t have any information on MusicBrainz, 1) Is that possible, and 2) How do you do it, or 3) Do I just edit the metadata in the cluster column and leave it?
Thanks, I really love this program!
