Hello everyone, I've been using MM since about 18 months so far. I'm not a programmer, but I'm interested in tweaks and improvements for almost everything I have in my computer. And this includes MM.
First of all, I want to apologise if this is not the right place for this kind of suggestion-request, but is the one that seemed correct to me.
Secondly, I'm going to explain my idea.
I'm sure that many of you have thought about this before, and possibly already have the answer to my question.
Some time ago, I decided to create a database in MS Access to store my music data. In order to achieve this, I had to
1) Check and correct the mp3 files' tags. (which is more or less done)
2)Decide the database structure. (which is the following:)
My MS Access database has got five tables: Albums, Artists, Artists_Website, Style, and Format. I introduce info in the tables through forms, which are: Artists, Style, Format, *Albums (embedded into Artists form) and *Artists_Website (embedded into Artists form). Thus, I only need to open the Artists form, and from there introduce any info I want: Artist ID, artist name, origin, artist style, years active, website(s), and description of this website (whether it is their Youtube channel, official page, etc.), current members, former members, and info about their albums: album ID, album name, publishing year, artist ID, album format (whether it's an EP, LP, promo CD, double CD, etc.)
Okay, this being said, the problem is that I could do all this manually, looking at my files, tags, and searching the Web, and introducing the data one by one, but I think there MUST be a way of doing this - or something similar - automatically. I found a couple of programmes (Music Collector, and Music Label 2010), but they don't really satisfy what I want. And after that I thought there could be some way of exporting MM's database, or converting it, I don't know... I also thought of some foobar2000 feature or script, but I don't really know where to start.
This is my problem, so any help is welcome
; and for you developers, if some of you wants to take the challenge of creating a script that can do this, the idea is all yours...
Thank you all for your attention.
