Hi Everyone, this is my first post.
I have tried looking at various posts but was unable to get the answers, so here it goes…
I have a library of 15,000 Songs. They have been downloaded from various online sources , CD rips, and record label downloads. It is for a radio station so everything is legal - even if downloaded online.
Anyways, they way it is now, there are many files without Genres. I cant play the files because many of the albums data are compilations and wrong, and the original dates of the songs are wrong and basically I have 15,000 songs, with lots of wrong data linked to them.
I downloaded 100 songs to test the musicbrainz picard tool.
I keep getting two major issues.
1, That when i drag and drop the files into the left screen, many are converted into “non-album-tracks” or other “mix compelation***” type album files. Both the listing of the album as “non-album tracks” is not acceptable, and also the incorrect albums are not acceptable.
2, when I purposefully delete the meta data and keep only the artist and title, for example Marvin Gaye - What’s going on - (length 3:53) it finds a file, it saves it as “non-album tracks” and puts incorrect metadata saying it is ISRC: USMO10000523/USMO17100041 (which links to a 2007 release of the song), and puts a picture of a band called “30 seconds to mars” as the image… (who knows why) i’m not sure what Jean-luc Picard would say about that lol.
when I click the file on the right hand window (it is green here) and press look up in browser it takes me to the page. ITEM 1 is the correct (1.1) catalog number 11190 Marvin Gaye What’s going on 1971 Motown records - IS the correct CORRECT listing and its ISRC is USMO10000523.
Why is Musicbrainz Picard not getting the right info from online and matching it up with the song? if it is stuffing up most of the sample of 100 songs with a random album name and the wrong release dates, i don’t want to think what it will do with 15,000 songs…
Your help is appreciated community.
