so i have been working specifically within musicbrainz all stinkin day today and my brain is about fried and i figured i could use another pair or eyes to help point out some of the problems i am having. basically, after finalizing my file naming script and editing the settings/options and plugins, i run my music through and go to view it and notice a few things i want to change but cant figure out how.
first, i notice underscores in random places and dont want any underscores anywhere.
second, i have a lot of songs that are just singles, i have very few ‘entire albums’ and because of that, musicbrainz isn’t picking up on adding the songs to the same album if they belong together, instead i will have a file matched with ‘now thats what i call music…’ instead of the actual album it was released on.
third, i cant figure out how to not include the parenthesis if a date/year isn’t listed.
and last, i want to only include the album cover art and not a picture of the cd because the music player i use sometimes uses the cd picture instead of the album cover which is more familiar to look at.
here is the file naming script i am using:
$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),$if(%discsubtitle%,CD %discnumber%: %discsubtitle%/, CD %discnumber%/),)
$num(%tracknumber%,2) - %albumartist% - %title%
and i have the following plugins installed…
-add album column
-add cluster as release
-album artist ext.
-amazon cover art
-classic disc #
-collect album artists
-fanart.tv cover art
-feat. artist in titles
-fix track #
-load as non-album track
-replace forbidden symbols
-smart title case
-the audiodb cover art
i’m not sure what else i could include but i’m pretty sure it has just been a long day and i’m overlooking something easy and another pair of eyes could point out what i need to do so if you are that pair of eyes, thank u for your help!
