Re: Magic Nodes 4.2 w/ 380 masks & real GUI (2011-07-01)[MM2

Post by MMuser2011 » Sat Dec 10, 2011 7:34 am

I'm a Newbie using the fantastic Magic Nodes. It seems, that I have many mp3 with 'Tracks with multiple front covers'.
But if I check the listed mp3 (with Mp3Tag), I can only see 1 embedded cover in the mp3.
Sometimes, there is *.jpg in the same folder, maybe this one will be counted as 'additional front cover'?

How can I setup MediaMonkey and Magic Nodes to IGNORE this *.jpg in album directories?
I would like to see only 'Tracks with multiple front covers' if they are embedded in the mp3, not anywhere else.

Can someone please help me?

Did you check the same file in MM? Whey your mouse is over the cover in the Properties dialog box you would see where it is stored displayed in the tooltip.

I doubt about it if it is not explicitly specified but, as I said, check it first in MM for a problematic file.

If I check it with MM, it shows (at least) 2 pictures:
- the one embedded in the track
- the one(s) saved in the same directory of the album

With your new code (just added at the end of the section [CustomNodeMasks] with the next free Mask### in the MediaMonkey.ini) I don't see a big difference. A few tracks doesn't appear anymore.
Most of it still shows one ore more covers, saved inside the id3tag or as file in the same directory. :roll: It would be perfect, if this node shows only 'tracks with multiple embedded front covers, ignoring external stored graphic files'.

Are you absolutely sure that you got displayed tracks that have only one front cover stored in tag, not matter if it has another cover in external file or not?
MMuser2011 wrote:It would be perfect, if this node shows only 'tracks with multiple embedded front covers, ignoring external stored graphic files'.
I don't understand what you want. If you have some track which is somehow tagged with covers both in tag and in external image file, that is not a fault of this add-on and it cannot solve that. This add-on serves only to displays tracks, not to modify them. Maybe you could take a look at trixmoto's Album Art Tagger add-on if it could remove covers stored in external files.

Sorry, I wrote it not clear enough.
Your Addon is perfect! Just this single node shows entries, that shouldn't be there (IMHO).

The Node should show entries with multiple front covers (according to the cover type).
BUT it should not show entries with front covers stored elsewhere outside the track.

The idea behind this:
I would like to check, if my tracks have two or more front covers embedded (and then delete the 2nd,3rd..)
I don't mind, if there are dozens of covers in the same directory.

Sorry to confuse you! :oops:

P.S. Yes, I'm sure. Because MM4 and Mp3tag shows only one embedded cover.
What I'm not sure: Maybe MM has made some strange linking between external *.jpg and tracks at the very first import of the songs :cry:

The suggested mask cannot display tracks that have only one cover stored in tag. I just tried it and it works fine. Maybe your covers in tracks are tagged inappropriately. As I said, check the Album Art Tagger add-on, I think that it has an option to correct cover types.

Problem solved!
I have deleted and recreated my entire database. Now, the results are as desired!


Another question:
If I would like to add some more nodes, how can I 'put them together' without rewrite all the Mask### in the MediaMonkey.ini?

Example
I would like to add a Node 'Strange Albums with too much tracks' directly after the existing 'Incomplete Albums' (Mask31 in the *.ini) and before the 'Compilations'-Node (Mask32). How can I do that?

Open Edit /Magic Nodes Settings dialog box, click on New button, enter mask settings, click on Add button, then:
1. click on the up arrow of Move spinbox control, or
2. open Edit / Magic Nodes Export/Import dialog, select added mask and click on Up button.

Works great! Thank you again.

Collapsing folders bug?

Post by stagler » Sun Dec 18, 2011 2:18 pm

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to MM 4 and am experiencing a pretty annoying issue that didn't happen in previous versions - feels like it must be a bug but I'm not sure.

In the Music folder tree on the left, I drill down in the Magic Node I have created to select the album I want. When I click on the final level of the album, it is selected on the middle section but then the tree completely collapses again so that nothing is expanded.

The magic node has a mask of: Artists|Child of:Location|MM filter:Music\<album artist>\<album|Sort by:max(year)>

I have set the magic node to appear in my default "Music" collection.

Another interesting observation is if I first select any album in the default "Album Artists" node in the Music collection first and then go back to my magic node to select something, the issue stops happening and the tree stays expanded when selecting albums.

Is there any way to prevent this happening?

Thanks,

Richard

REQ: Two new searches

Post by thefaceman » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:15 am

Two new searches requests if anyone has the time

1. I have a Lot of songs with spelling variations and I do not know how to compare titles vs title with only one or two letter differences

Examples

Rock N Roll vs Rock And Roll
Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay vs Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay
True Colours vs True Colors
Big N Rich vs Big And Rich (artist)

2. I have a few of my classical songs that seem to be missing a space before and after a #. I want to find these listings, so I can fix them manually.

Examples

No12
7opus
Mvmnt4

Missing MagicNodes in MM4

Post by ScottBolton » Tue Dec 20, 2011 2:46 pm

Howdy!

Just upgraded to MM4 and it appears that MagicNodes is automatically installed. Imported my nodes from an exported file but can't see any of them, other than one for Cover Art - one that I never use! How do I get them back? Here's one of the nodes:

Mask1=<Group|Name:Master:|Show tracks:No>\Album Artist|child of:Artist|SQL filter:Songs.SongPath LIKE '%\Masters\%'|icon:top level\<Album Artist|trim:1>\<Album Artist>\<Album|sort by:max(year)|sort order:asc>

(I'm using MN 4.2)

Just upgraded to MM4 and struggling to get back to where I was with MM3.

I have most my collection ripped as both FLAC and MP3. Using the filters in MM3 I was able to just flick between the two and then the nodes picked up whichever was selected.

Now all the collections appears as entries but I can't setup magic nodes to do what I want which is something like
FLAC
--Albums by album artist by year
--Errors
----No Cover art
----No album gain
----No genre
MP3
--Albums by album artist by year
--Errors
----No Cover art
----No album gain
----No genre

(ie. basically have the same nodes under both collections)

My album by album artist node is setup as

Code: Select all

Album Artist [A-Z], Album (by Year)|Icon:Top level|Child of:Location|MM filter:FLAC\<Album Artist|Trim:1|Statistic:Count(All)>\<Album Artist|Statistic:Count(All)>\<Album|Sort by:Max(Year)|Statistic:Count(All)>
which is ok (I had to add a location item to the collections as there is no way of making the node a child of a collection directly and without it the filter gets applied but it sits outside of the collection node)

If I then try and create a second node like this but change the filter to MP3 then it says a node with this mask already exists and do I want to update that.

Any ideas how I can achieve what I want?

What would be an appropriate 'donation' amount to get this 'search' created?
