I have an issue that has appeared, but seems it may be the same in v2.2
We’ll call it the Boxset Boogaloo (using dance moves from Rocky Horror Time Warp)
Qu: Does Lookup use the disc numbers? Is the Cluster aware of disc numbers?
I have an 11 CD set I am trying to match up from MP3 files, and it is a bit of a headache. Especially as it is seven copies of concerts from one 1972 tour. This means track names keep repeating across the disks in the same order.
It is already tagged with correct track titles.
A lookup fails totally to find this release. (Even after I had used MP3TAG to edit the actual Release title in and set all the Track nos and Disc nos. Maybe it didn’t like the colon in the name.)
A scan gets pretty close as it matches seven of the eleven discs up well using AcoustID, but for the rest it matches to other releases.
So now I have one GOOD match on the right with 63/96 files matched. And half a dozen wrong release matches. (Note: Now I have submitted AcoustIDs, this up to 81/96 matches)
Attempts to untangle this lead to a few bits of madness.
Drag everything back to the left and re-cluster. Now try and drag and drop the Cluster onto the Release on the right. Dropping on to Release title. Disc numbers are clearly ignored as now everything matches to CD1 and the first concert! Eeeek!!!
So we have to start again… with a step to the Left… bring everything back to the left again.
Go back and hit that SCAN button again for best matches… and they leap back to the riiiiight.
Now I gather up those miss-matched tracks from the right, re-cluster them.
Turn on the VERY HANDY new columns on the left. (Woo! Yay!! Thanks for that feature ) Now I can see the track nos and disc nos.
And the only way to get the last files across is drag and drop them one by one in to place.
So, you can see, it would be really handy to have the disc no checked when matching.
Next odd step - why is “copy cluster to clipboard” also not aware of disc numbers? I have 94 tracks here that I want to use to copy track times to MB… but can’t do this due to Copy Cluster to Clipboard also not knowing about disc numbers.
(If a copy is required for testing purposes I could find a way of getting this to you…)
- Even once fully tagged the “Lookup” still fails totally for this release.
- Press “Lookup in Browser” and the correct match is at the top of the search list.
Maybe some of the lookup fails as the MB database has no track times at all at this moment.
