Hello all, I'm trying to create a sorting of album artist with different genre, virtually the same as the artist with different genre in magic nodes and i continue to run into complications. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How do you exclude a pairing of terms where you've already told it to include one of them,
as a silly example:

Let's say I want
<Title> Like '%Cream%' OR <Title> Not Like '%Cream Corn%'
or like,
<Title> Like '%Cream%' OR <Title> Not Like '%Corn%'
but anything with Cream will be included regardless because I asked it to include it, but I don't want it when it's
paired with certain terms like Corn.

I doubt there is a more elegant way to adjust two numerical values than using two spin/slider controls. By the way, here are the controls that are available in MM scripts by its API: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/SDBUI. There is limited set of controls that you could see in the program itself, so if MM don't have some control that you would like too see, then the script is even less likely that could use such control.

I tried setting the ID:1 tag using MaxValue:<ID:2> and setting the ID:2 tag using MinValue:<ID:1> but that did not work.

Sorry, but there is no such way. Magic Nodes doesn't support nested tags. You just need to be careful when you enter these values.

Made the switch to the enhanced Version 5.0 and I'm very pleased! Great new features and capabilities. Definitely worth the donation for anybody who uses Magic Nodes.

I've been messing around with the adjustable parameters feature which gives me super flexibility and reduces the number of nodes I need. Something I'm wondering: I have set up an adjustment for choosing a rating range

Code: Select all
(Rating >= <Number|Caption:Minimum Stars|Value:3|MinValue:0|MaxValue:5|ID:1> * 20 AND Rating <= <Number|Caption:Maximum Stars|Value:3|MinValue:0|MaxValue:5|ID:2> * 20)


which gives me two sliders to adjust.

1. Is there a more elegant way to provide selection of a range than this? Something all together on one slider, or more tied together visually in the dialog box?

2. Is there a way to ensure the chosen minimum value isn't more than the chosen maximum value and the chosen maximum value isn't less than the chosen minimum value? I tried setting the ID:1 tag using MaxValue:<ID:2> and setting the ID:2 tag using MinValue:<ID:1> but that did not work.

Is it not showing up under the Files to Edit of the Entire Library collection? Do you have installed MN masks for corresponding nodes?

Ok, it turns out I overlooked where filters can't use modifiers.

I did come up with a different way to do it, posting here in case it is useful to anybody else:

<Group|Name:Carlos Custom|Show tracks:No>\Tagged Artist no match Filename Artist V2 |Filter: ']' <> SubStr(<File name>, length(<artist>)+2, 1)
<Group|Name:Carlos Custom|Show tracks:No>\Tagged Title no match Filename Title V2 |Filter: length(<file name>) <> (length(<artist>)+length(<title>)+3)

Parsing File Name with Right Of Qualifier

Hi,

I'm new to MediaMonkey and Magic Nodes, and I have created a mask that I like, but I'm trying to modify it and I seem to be stuck.

I'm trying to find items where the tagged artist or title do not match the way I do my filenames.

Filenames are like this:
[<artist>] <title>.extension

So, this filter will make that comparison:
Filter:<Artist> <> SubStr(<File name>, 2, Length(<Artist>))

The problem with this filter is that it misses items where the difference is that something is tacked on to the filenames artist section making it longer than the tagged artist.
Meaning that if these two have the same artist tagged, then it thinks these two match when they really don't:
[<artist>] <title>.extension
[<artist> zzz] <title>.extension

I thought I could improve this by doing something like this:
Filter:<artist> <> <File name|Right of:[|Right until:]>

This isn't working, and I haven't been able to figure out why. It may be simple syntax or something else, but I figure I need a little bit of help.

The error I'm getting is 'The mask defining this Magic Node produced and error...'

Thanks!

The MediaMonkey tree has a node Artist & Album Artist. I think I recall a while back confirmation on this thread that Magic Nodes doesn't have that capability. Is that (still) true?

What I'd really like to make is a node Album Artist & Involved People. I can create for a specific artist (admittedly this is clumsy but it avoids getting into the Split thing which always confuses me):

Code: Select all
Vince Gill|Icon:0|Filter:(<Artist> = 'Vince Gill' OR <Involved People> Like '%: Vince Gill%')\<Title with artist plus album>


But when the database includes thousands of artists and involved people it's not reasonable to create thousands of customized nodes to get this.

mana,

I replaced <Album|Sort by:Max(Year)> with <Album|Min tracks:3|Sort by:Max(Year)>to add "limiting the display to albums with more than 2 tracks". Even without that, your mask works as intended for me. The problem may just be general database related which a complete optimisation might help to sort out.

Sort by Artist, by album year filter > 2 tracks

Post by mana » Sat Oct 24, 2015 2:01 pm

I am trying to set a magic node showing artists and albums sorted by year but limiting the display to albums with more than 2 tracks and that are not compilations.

I'm not able to set the filter, or when I did then the year did not show up before the album name.

Here is the mask I am using so far:
Code: Select all
Album Artist with Album by year|Icon:Top level|Child of:Library|Position:First child|Filter:<Album artist> <> 'Various Artists'\<Album Artist>\<Album|Sort by:Max(Year)>


Help would be greatly appreciated!

Filter:GroupDesc = '--Album--' AND <Composer> = ''


That should find files that have a Grouping of "--Album--" and an empty Composer field, shouldn't it? I'm getting an empty node however. Meanwhile, an auto-search results in 13,790 files.

<Composer> MN field cannot be compared to empty string, as you could see from some examples in the Filter examples group. You should use <Multi Composer> or Songs.Author instead. The same apply for all multi-item fields.
