Re: Ideal way to treat loose tracks without an album?

Lowlander responded while I was composing my reply above. I do use per Album for playback leveling. So my comments above have that caveat.

Re: Ideal way to treat loose tracks without an album?

Just a word of caution: Sometimes it's a lot more than a slight volume variation. If one track of a two-track "unreleased" album gets adjusted by -14.1dB and another one by +0.1dB because the sources were way different, the -7.0dB Album Volume won't be very appropriate for either track at time of pl...

Re: Ideal way to treat loose tracks without an album?

John, another reason to put a unique value in the Album field has to do with Volume Analysis. If you "Analyze Volume" on your tracks, and if you have several tracks from an artist that are part of your "no album" group, "Analyze Volume" will (understandably) treat all of those tracks as belonging to...

Changing Album Replay Gain values

Here's a workaround for a longtime MM problem (in my opinion, it's a problem): Situation: You have an album with multiple tracks (mp3) which you have "analyzed volume" on, so there is a value in the "Album Volume" and "Track Volume" fields. Then you decide to change the Album Name for one of the tra...

Re: No vertical scroll bar in media tree window ?????

I bumped this 2014 thread a more than a year ago. Now I see komarek has bumped it again. It's still a problem in the version komarek cited. There's a valid set of screen shots provided by dps earlier in this thread. The situation is that the entire media tree is visible when MMW first starts, but la...

Re: Coveting .mp4 to .mp3 files

MM will convert mp4 to mp3, but I believe you have to have the Gold version to convert anything to mp3 (due to licensing). MM does preserve all tags in the converted file. I convert files all the time that are not in my library. (Usually, I'm converting them prior to putting them into my library.) T...

Wanting improved "Now Playing" info export

I use the WinAmp AMIP plug-in to export info from my "Now Playing" track to a .txt file. When a new track starts playing, the txt file is overwritten with the new song's metadata, and that is exactly what I want it to do. It works fine but it is kind of limited in what info it will export. It provid...

Re: Drop-down in Rating column

The rating column is wide enough, but I made it wider just to be sure that wasn't the problem. Actually, the "problem" is caused by where I click on the song first to highlight it. If I click in the rating column first to highlight the song, and then click again in the rating column to apply my rati...

Re: is there a way to have a seperator in the playlist ?

What I do is use a short, silent music file. I call it a "pause track". It's silent, and just a couple of seconds long. I leave most of the tags blank. Then I insert that track at the appropriate locations in the playlist to visually separate groups of songs. A few CDs have pause tracks that you can...

Drop-down in Rating column

This is something that is kind of annoying. I'm hoping there is a way to fix it. If I have a non-playing track in the library list view and I want to apply a rating, sometimes, but not all the time, when I click on the number of stars I want, instead of applying that rating, it opens a drop down lis...

Re: Correct artist tagging method

Also, if you have a compilation album like the "Now" series, many people put "Various" (or some derivative of that) in the AlbumArtist field and the actual artist in the Artist field.

[SOLVED] Auto-Tag from Web can't show results

Hi. Is anyone else having this problem? I use Auto-Tag from Web some... not a lot... but it always worked for me in that it always successfully attempted to process a request, even though it didn't always come up with usable results. On the whole, it is a very helpful function. I use it primarily fo...

Re: maximum capacity (# of mp3 files) that can be managed in

Alan, I have not quite 300,000 media files, almost all mp3. I have my MM database on my SSD C drive. The media files themselves are on my D drive, a regular internal HDD. MMW handles my library without a hiccup, and it is very fast when searching. When I start MMW, it takes about 8 seconds to load t...

Re: No vertical scroll bar in media tree window ?????

I'm reviving this thread because the problem as described in the thread still exists (at least for me it does). I am on the current version of MMW (4.1.15.1830), Gold Lifetime. I use the Glided skin. My font size in the "Skin" Option is 100% (I've never changed it). I'm not overriding a Skin theme o...
