I have a lot of not tagged mp3 that are just picks from albums or compilations, so not the hole album but only pieces of it. Nevertheless I would like to bundle this mp3 with the original cover.
The good news: the fingerprint works rather well (step 1). So I get artist and title.
Despite I have configured my preferences (moved slider for tagging to right for album and left to compilations), the result of finding seems rather random. So my steps are first to save at least artist and title and than in a second step try to find similar releases. As I am not so familiar with original albums, this is rather hard work (step 2). Manually I do that by select an album that is not marked as compilation with an old release date.
Once I found it it might happen there is no cover. So 3rd step is to find album with cover. This is already supported but has to be taken manually again.
I am wondering, whether and how I can simplify step 2 and 3. Especially step 2 (find the proper album) is a pain. Does this preferences really work or am I doing something wrong?
Imho it should best filter only album, use single if no album is found and only if this fails use a compilation (with preference to Best of artist not best of 90th …). Maybe the release date can help to find the original.
If I can connect this with check for availability of cover this would be perfect.
MBP is a great tool with a lot of features. What I miss are profiles. Sometimes I want to exclude tag fields (like title or album) from save (which is possible), sometimes not. But switching between this settings is not possible in a simple way (at least I don’t see this).
I am running this under Linux - if this matters for something.
