Am. I missing something? I’m adding a large carefully curated collection of electronic music vinyl and digital of which about 10-20% not in the DB. I’m finding it very frustrating that I have to create the release first, then go back and edit relationships to add remixers, editors, writers, producers etc etc which are never obvious in many electronic music releases.
It is such a pain in the ass mainly I only bother to go back and add remixer relationships after submitting the release, when there is so much more I could add if I could simply do it at time of submitting the original new release.
Am I missing something?
PS For particularly important relationships I do go back and add relationships only if notable to me and hence most people, and hope that other pedants complete things as mastered by or distributed by etc. I have thousands of new releases to submit. Initially I thought I was missing something and tried adding during tracklist submission, using joining words such as " Remixed-by ", “Addition production by” to the next artist etc until I learnt better.
Surely the discogs user script could be improved to pull these relationships in?, and the submission process streamlined. Everything of mine perfectly tagged in foobar2000 with discogs plugin but now I want extra functionality and data quality of MusicBrainz.
And don’t even get me started on scanning everything first to get the acoustic IDs, then backing that out to clustering lookup and adding missed releases as most of the releases from scanning are inevitably random tracks on not the releases I have…
