Can someone explain me how to delete some of default MB Picard tags?
I really don’t need plenty of tags like this ones:
For me personally that’s plenty of unuseful informations that I don’t need and it will be nice if I can keep only this tags:
date (instead of using complete date, can I get somehow only original release year (like master release year) and release year without month and day?)
For classical works I need just few more things:
I know that I can write all MB Picard tags and later delete that I don’t need but it’s not best solution and I’m collecting my music collection whole my life (I’m not so young any more ) and for me it’s very imporatant to have consistency with all my tags, naming scheme etc. (really very important ).
I have plenty of albums with same name but with different publisher and release year and because of that I need tags like original date,release date, publisher, catalog number and if I can somehow get comment tag like comment in Mp3tag, foobar2000, MusicBee…
My second question is about renaming music files.
I’m using scheme like this one in TagScanner:
For compilations (Various Artists) and with more than one disc:
%disc%-%track% - %artist% - %title%
For compilations (Various Artists) with one disc:
%track% - %artist% - %title%
%track% - %title%
For albums with more than one disc:
%disc%-%track% - %title%
In Mp3tag I’m uisng this name sheme for albums:
$num(%track%,2) - %title%
Compilations (Various Artists):
$num(%track%,2) - %artist% - %title%
This post is not about what is compilation and what is album.
Can I make Picard to make this rename because it will be nice to have one app for all my work becase with all help, maybe I will be over with all that work for idk few years (every album is renamed manually with my scheme and I can’t done that by some app because of some extra info in naming like “West German Pressing”, “Bonus Track”, “Japanese Pressing”, “Reissue”, “Remaster”, “Red Swirl”, “Blue Swirl”, “Black Triangle”, bitrate, etc.) .
But, it will be great if someone can help me with that scrypt for renaming files in albums, compilations, multi disc releases etc. and with removing tags that I don’t need.
Right now I’m using combination of Mp3tag and TagScanner (for renaming files with more than one disc) and it will be great if I can use Picard for all my needs.
Around 90% of my tags in Mp3tag is from Discogs but I’m little sceptical about Discogs and their future like database with consistency (plenty of identical releases, capitalizing all words like (of, and, for…) deleting some releases and than Discogs ID’s in tags are unuseful etc.)
After few years of using Discogs for organizing my collection I’m ready to start using MusicBrainz like my primary source of all music info and have Discogs only for backup and for some releases that I can’t find in MusicBrainz.
Thanks for all help!
