While in Picard, when I scan files, it does automatically a lookup. This can be quite annoying. For example, I have a many track comp album, so I need to wait while it pulls in data from many many albums it finds matches to… all the while all I really want to do is scan them for a new release I am adding so fingerprints can be added after I add it if needed.
So my question is, is there a way to just scan and not lookup? Basically a way to scan and get fingerprints from files without searching the database for anything? I know I can use fpcalc in terminal for example, but that is not an easy transition to Picard where I just want to see if it will accept a submission of IDs. Maybe a scan button to scan, then a lookup scanned items button sort of thing.
I want to note… for me, I use Picard as a MB submission tool about 99% of the time, tagging with it rarely. I mention this as I am not sure if the needs of this feature differ for me due to that, but I wanted to briefly explain how I use the software.
