Genre Shortcut Keys

by cldcp00 » Wed Dec 19, 2012 12:12 pm

Hi There,

I am trying to get the above script to work. I followed the instructions closely and installed it, but when I uise the keys to set the Genre nothing happens.

I also tried the script that sets the rating using keys same again.

Has anybody got these scripts to work? are they still used as the they forum for it seem old.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Regards

Desmond

It needs to be in the Scripts\Auto folder not the Scripts folder. Then restart MediaMonkey.

How do I install this script? I'm new to scripts and guessed and did the following:
Copied the text to Notepad
Named the file "Ratings.vbs"
Placed it in MM/Scripts

but it doesn't appear in my script list in Tools.

I expect I'm missing something obvious - help much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello! How can make global hotkeys from this script?

Re: Genre Shortcut Keys

I actually figured this out on my own, so I will post it here, although it may not be very useful to many people, since it is based on setting the Tempo with ONLY letters. Example: I select a song that I think is "Upbeat" and click the letter "u." This changes that songs Tempo to "Upbeat." Of course, this is modifiable. For example, I made one that changes the Mood based on keyboard letters, as well.
Hope it helps someone!

It would be great if I could assign Moods and/or Categories to hotkeys, as well. Maybe something like ALT+1 = my first Mood (Upbeat), and CTRL+! = my first Category (Background), and so on. I am currently working on trying to make sense of the genre script, and seeing if I think I can figure the changes out for myself, but haven't gotten too far (yet). Any help would be appreciated!

Is there a simply way to modify this script so the short cut keys add a selected song to a specific playlist rather than assign a genre?
Thanks.

by baker » Mon Jan 07, 2008 1:48 pm

I use this script all the time or a modified version. Any progress on the update mentioned earlier?

by Peke » Sat Jan 05, 2008 1:11 pm

It should Be OK No SQL Calls there.

by bob61 » Fri Jan 04, 2008 11:22 pm

Just curious - is this script OK for use with MM3?

Updated

i've spent the last few hours tinkering around the innards of this script, mainly because i really wanted the ability to completely remove the rating from a song.

while i was at it, i also added the ability to assign a 0 (bomb) rating and (i think) made it a little more efficient by creating the menus inside a loop. i'm fairly new to scripting (and this is only my 1st post (2nd attempt) at writing for MM), so if that's a bad idea, please let me know.

any other comments would be welcome :)

'               LIMEX: I changed to use buttons 1-0 instead of 1-5 in order to assign also 1/2 stars.
'
' INSTALLATION:
' - Feel free to change the constants at the beginning of this file
' - Copy script to MM directory scripts\auto
'
' USE:
' - Press key "`",1-0,"-" to rate the currently selected song(s)
' - If no song is selected then currently playing song is rated
'
' REMARK: Rating process now can be done very fast without additional mouse clicks:
'   1) Start playing a list
'   2) Make sure no tracks are selected (otherwise they catch the rating)
'   3) Listen to track; wind forward if needed with '3' on numeric pad
'   4) Press "`",1-0,"-" on normal keyboard for rating
'   5) Jump to next song with '9' an numeric pad
'   6) Continue with step 3)

Is there anyway to tell MM not to use these hotkeys when modifying a filename? For example, if I want to change a filename to "Beatles - Sgt Pepper", I can't do it unless I go into Properties because I have the 'B' key assigned to 'Blues'. Mucho gracias.

by baker » Sat Dec 23, 2006 10:47 pm

Hey Peke, thanks for a great script. If you want to add features, maybe you'd like to add a 'sub-genre' function? So that depending on the track's genre it would add the appropriate sub-genre to a custom field. For example, while hitting 'S' would simply update the Genre field , hitting 'Shift-S' would add either 'Ska' to Custom1 of a Reggae track or 'Soul' to an R&B track.

Just a thought..

by Peke » Fri Dec 22, 2006 10:14 pm

This is old script structure and I'm glad that it is still in use.

I'll see what can be done to make some Changes and use new MM goodies (read features) like Setup menu, implementing installer and few other things.
