I watched the video and but I am having difficulties using the app. Just finishing ripping over 400 cd’s using a ripping service and I am trying to repair tags and art on a few of the CD’s that have no album art or tags I do not like.
None of these scanned albums are close to what I need to fix the CD ripped file.
So I can not get an album loaded to edit or work with.
You can also edit tags and add cover art to files not matched to MusicBrainz data. In your screenshot you have clustered the files, and you can e.g. select the cluster and drag and drop a image file onto the cover art box.
Sorry I am so dense here. I reloaded the CD and did a cluster and scan. It does not find any thing close to the CD. I see that the CD was added to MusicBrainz but it still is not showing up in my scan. This CD has 16 tracks.
It appears that the importer that @Zas used combined all of the separate tracks into single tracks for each group. The importer that I tried was going to do the same, so I entered it manually for you. You should be able to load it as Ballet Favourites (16 separate tracks).
Found a similar version in German, tracks do not match, I want to load the new album cover and keep the same original same 7 tracks. It will not work, plus when I save the file to another folder it wipes out the original on the shared drive.
If you are just wanting to change an album image, use something like mp3tag.
Picard is not at all made to work with ‘similar versions where the tracks do not match’. Essentially with Picard/MB you want to find database items that match your version 1:1. And if they’re not there, ideally you would add them. This way we crowdsource the work - the hours spent fixing your collection helps the next person using Picard
Re. wiping the original you should be working with a backup of your files, with any new software!! You can’t undo tag changes, ahhhh!
But it would be useful to be able to ‘Save Copy’ without doing that, there’s a ticket/request for this function here (hasn’t been implemented yet).
