Re: [1470] WASAPI outputting Noise

Yes, you MAY have a bit-perfect output with Wasapi exclusive mode using "Push mode", too. Actually Event mode is theoretically better (it has a shorter path in Windows audio), but some DACs do not work well with Event mode. But take in mind that Wasapi exclusive mode is not enough to have a bit-perf...

Re: Classical Music Tree

You may cuastomize the Summary for your needs, in Option/Playback rules, click on Classical Music and edit the 2 "Art View" lines. For instance, I use: $if(<Composer>, <Composer> - )<Album> $if(<Conductor>,<Conductor>)$If(<Artist>, - <Artist>,)$If(<Date>, - <Date>,) $If(<Publisher>, - <Publisher>,) ...

OK, with 1467 the sorting/grouping issue seems fixed.
Thanks!

Re: Art + Details view scrolls FAR too quickly

I don't know if it may help, anyway: I cannot reproduce the issue, but for me the defaul 3 lines scrolling is too fast for the upper browser, so I changed to 1 line scrolling using the Logitech software; I think it's better fot the main panel, too.

Failed to Import file

Re: [1463] addons are installed twice [#8975]

Ludek, I don't understand either. ;) My guess is: - during first install of MM4 I'm sure I installed as Admin - when installing skins or whatever add-on, again, I'm sure I always installed for all users - BUT during upgrades to some 4.0.x version it's very possible that, instead of dowloading the fi...

Re: [4.0.3.1465/6] Sorting/grouping bug(s)

I do notice that if I sort on album artist the track list is sorted by track no and not on alphabetical title order so not all bad news :) You're right; I didn't notice before, as I don't use the artist album column at all. The problem is that, the way I tag Classical Music, sorting by Album Artist...

Re: [4.0.3.1465/6] Sorting/grouping bug(s)

Additionally, please don't do that ascending/descending sort order lock thing . In my case, for example, I set up the Summary in such a way (see first post) to sort by year. That way I can sort track groups (=albums) by year, seeing an artist's latest albums at the top of the list. If you keep this...

Re: [1463] addons are installed twice [#8975]

Ludek,

I don't know if it helps, but I just checked Tools/Extensions and i have ALL my add-on listed twice. For the record, I always install add-on for all users.
Just a guess: maybe there's a relation with the famous "install as Admin" issue?

Re: [4.0.3.1465] Sorting/grouping bug(s)

Petr, there is some progress for the sorting/grouping issue. i.e.: if I configure the summary to show the Date, too, (sorting by summary) now I have albums with the same name and the same artist but different date not grouped, as requested (thanks). But the tracks inside albums are sorted alphabetic...

Re: Orchestra/Band Tag

Yes, Foobar use album artist the same way as MM. With some Googling I've found more confusion: some programs, for instance dbpoweramp and Jriver, have both Album Artist and Orchestra fields... :o Somedoby knows it these programs use standard or custom tags for Orchestra? OK, the reason I'm asking is...

Re: Release WASAPI Exclusive Mode To Another Application

It is the way Wasapi Exclusive mode - Event Style works.

A workaround is disabling Event Style (Wasapi Advanced setting), this way MM release the audio device when you stop playing. Please note that Pause is not enough.

Well, yes and not.

I mean: I was sure "album Artist" is a quite standard Tag, now it seems it's not.
Also, album artist has a completely different meaning from Orchestra/Band.

Re: Orchestra/Band Tag

Thanks nohitter, but I'm a little confused.

AFAIK, the Orchestra/Band Tag should be TPE2, but in the page you linked TPE2 is Album Artist...

Am I relying on incorrect informations?
