How can I find nodes with the Album Artists that are not performing artists in any album?

I don't understand. Could you be more specific?

There is the 'Artist' field, here I'll call it 'Performer'
and the 'Album Artist' field

If given 'Album Artist' is not in any file in the whole library as an 'Performer' then give it a node

In other words take "Library > Album Artist" and eliminate the nodes which also apear in "Library > Artist"

For example
Maybe some albums have as 'Album Artist': Bob Marley & The Wailers
Give it a node if no file in the whole active filter has Bob Marley & The Wailers as a 'Performer', instead they may have just Bob Marley

I am still unsure if I understand your requirement, but first of all - the Magic Nodes script cannot be used to modify MM built-in nodes. However, you could add your own Album Artist Magic node and hide built-in Album Artist node using MM command Choose Tree nodes. So, maybe you could try with:

Code: Select all

Album Artist not performing Artists in any Album|Child of:Artist|Filter:<Album artist> NOT IN (SELECT Artists.Artist FROM Songs, ArtistsSongs, Artists WHERE Songs.ID = ArtistsSongs.IDSong AND (ArtistsSongs.PersonType = 1 OR ArtistsSongs.PersonType IS NULL) AND ArtistsSongs.IDArtist = Artists.ID)\<Album artist>

Thanks ZvezdanD

Very helpful, seems that worked exactly like requested

I didn't mean literally, just like you did it

"NOT IN" was easy enough to understand without knowning SQL and made it "IN" for another useful node

Code: Select all

Album Artist is performing Artists in any Album|Child of:Artist|Filter:<Album artist> IN (SELECT Artists.Artist FROM Songs, ArtistsSongs, Artists WHERE Songs.ID = ArtistsSongs.IDSong AND (ArtistsSongs.PersonType = 1 OR ArtistsSongs.PersonType IS NULL) AND ArtistsSongs.IDArtist = Artists.ID)\<Album artist>
I hope those are optimized

I find they are very good and useful, seems strange nobody requested nor shared those before, at least I didn't find them

The five user-defined fields under properties... currently they do not work like Multi Artist and so..


What is new:

v2.7 - 2009-06-29
- Added: Multi Artist, Multi Album Artist, Multi Composer, Multi Conductor, Multi Lyricist, Multi Genre, Multi Tempo, Multi Mood, Multi Occasion and Multi Quality fields (e.g., the <Artist> node could have two sub-nodes "David Bowie" and "Queen" for the song "Under Preasure" , but the <Multi Artist> node would have only one sub-node "David Bowie; Queen" for the same song; this is especially useful if you have multi-item genres and want to get the nested display of nodes with genres and sub-genres using Split by/Split part qualifiers, for example: Genres and Sub-Genres\<Multi Genre|Split by:;>\<Multi Genre|Split by:;|Split part:1>\<Multi Genre|Split by:;|Split part:2>) [MM3].

Yes, we all know that, but I still don't understand what is your question.

You cannot have multi-Custom field with this script if it is not supported by program itself. There is many posts about that in this thread and other Forums. MN multi-fields that are added in v2.7 are only for those MM fields which have multi-item ability: Artist, Album Artist, Composer, Conductor, Lyricist, Genre, Tempo, Mood, Occasion and Quality. If you want more multi-item fields, you should post your request to the Wishlist forum - there is already a thread requesting multi-item Custom fields, use Search option on the top of page.

Ok:

I warned you in the RegEx script so here I am. I am trying to create a node that identifies tracks that have info in the Custom4 field that does not match the SongID. I created this node but it is giving me every track, can you help me figure out what is wrong with it?

Code: Select all

<Group|Name:DB Adj.>\Update SongID to Custom4|Filter:Songs.ID <> Songs.Custom4|Show if empty:No\<Format|Unknown:No|All:Yes>

Your mask is correct. Are you sure that you previously copied ID to the Custom4 field?

My bad.. I have problems with this board while searching and comprehension. Also
may be it could be noted in "Whats new" that any field that does not have a drop-down field is
not supported.

is it possible to rearrange the items inside a node?
For example in a node displaying all genres in my collection, I'd like to organize the genre from Pop-ish to Death Metal
(example: Pop/Rock, Alternative, Alternative Rock, Alternative Metal, Metal)
Of course other "Main Genres" would be sorted in their own way; but hoping there is some way to customize the oraganization. Thanks!
