I mean Alpha Testers
for my new script SyncTheSync
Manual Build Table Script here
What it does:
Keeps Converted Tracks MetaData in Sync with the Original Track and vice versa
When a track is converted to another format (and added to the library) the script saves the tracks as a pair, linked. (The manual build table script attempts to do this without doing the actual conversion)
Whenever one or the other is changed the linked track is also updated.
You can have multiple converted tracks per original i.e. a 96, 128, 192 version of the original. In this example all 4 tracks will be synced.
Currently the script is designed around this scenario.
Separate filters for Original and Converted Tracks
i.e. All 320, All 96, All 128 etc
This is mainly because MMs track list will only update/refresh the track that you update not the other tracks.
If you F5 or change nodes its fine to use a single filter
Converted Tracks are in a separate sub directory
My Music\320, My Music\96, My Music\128.
This only so the manual table build script works (any structure should be fine if you convert the tracks when the script is installed)
If you are capable the manual script could be modified to build the table from any structure.
Current Fields Updated:
All Custom Fields are optional (set in options.)
It has had very limited testing so far because I am actually runnig 2 databases atm.
Hence the alpha post and not an official release.
I hoping that a few brave people will be willing to test it out while I merge my 2 databases and can do significant testing myself as well.
As the database handles most of the updating there really isn't a way to log the changes.
But because the database handles most of the updating it should be free of script errors
I will be on for an hour or so to answer any questions, then back in 4-5 hours before i go to bed.
The first confirmation will be about the actual fields, too many, not enough, more optional fields etc.
I am aware of two limitations (well I think its there).
If you change the album name and art at the same time the art will not be updated.
You need to make the album name/artist change first so they are all linked to the album, then change the artwork.
It looks like it is not currently synchronising tags (just the database) but they are not showing up in the files to edit --> unsyncrhonised tags
I will have to add writetags to the script
