I am really hoping someone can help me with my problem, I’ve been spending the last few days trying to solve this but I feel stupid and hopeless. I don’t understand. I was so excited when I found Picard because it is a lifesaver for me, and my wife’s classical music collection. I have OCD and it’s a constant battle as a classical music tagger. But once I realized Picard was a thing, my world changed forever. Take all my money Picard. Here’s the situation.
I am trying to do something for my wife for Valentine’s Day. I bought her a box set, and I’m trying to tag it, so it will look great on our home media server when she plays it on the devices.
However, no matter what I try, the only information that’s being pulled from the database is just the bare minimum: basic composer and title name, that’s pretty much it for usable.
The database has SO much more tag info which I was overjoyed to find but, the tagger just refuses to pull it in. Picard doesn’t import conductor, orchestra, engineer, soloist/performer (if any), et al.
And so I’m crying inside thinking about having to tag all of these manually even though the information is already present in the database?? What am I missing please?
How can I set up Picard to actually import all of the tag information that already exists in the MusicBrainz database? Because no matter what, it’s just not showing up. I’ll attach a screenshot and a GIF showing you the difference between MusicBrainz online database, and the Picard tagger.
FYI I have no special settings for the program, there’s no tag filtering, settings, there’s no special setup that I have here. This is all default installation.
Please help me with this. I really appreciate it. I’m just hitting my head against the wall here. I don’t understand.
The most important information would be the conductor, orchestra name, and soloist performer if any. It already exists, but I keep failing to import it to tagger. I’m stressing out thinking about having to do that all by hand even though it’s already in the database.
Thank you very much for helping me with this. I really do appreciate it. Is there a fee/cost for adding this feature or something I’m missing?
MusicBrainz database tags are not being pulled into Picard no matter what, and I’m going to cry lol can you help me figure out what I’m doing wrong?
