Importing folders of music into the Library?

Post by mikehende » Fri Oct 18, 2019 1:32 pm

Hey guys, I have the MM Pro App on my Android. I just imported a few folders of music into the Android's Music Folder. In MM I am seeing Library and Files as the 2 options.

I had 3 folders of music in the Library and wish to clear it but not seeing an option to do so?

After that I would like to import all of the newly imported folders in the Android's Music folder into the library then I would like to scan or analyze the entire library so I can use the search function.

How can I get the above done please? Navigating the App version seems to be a little different from the Windows version to me, help?

In Options Choose Library Folder determines what is in and not in the MMA Library.

In Options I select the Android's Music folder but in MM's Folder Options the Library is still showing only the 3 music folders which was in there and not any of the Android's Music folders?

Do you mean Folders on the homescreen in MMA? That should show everything on your device as it bypasses the MMA Library.

Yes, from the MM Home screen I select Folders then see the screen with Libray on top and FILES-Internal Shared Storage under it.

Ohh wait, the Library now shows all of the imported folders. Also I can search for any tune.

All I think I would need to know now is when I have a folder of music playing and wish to search for and set a tune from another folder to play next, how can I do so please so when the searched tune is finished the folder of music continues to play?

Long press on a file and select Play Next from the bottom. This inserts it next in the Now Playing while leaving existing files there.

O'm probable doing something wrong. With a folder playing I search and long press the searched tune then I see a few icons underneath. I tried the 4 on the left with the 3 bars and each one showed the tune added to the now playing I think but when I advance the playing tune to hear the next track the next tune doesn't play.

Can you tell me which of the 4 icons to the left will play the tune which is set as next?

I am also having trouble getting the crossfade or gapless playback to work.

Second from the left should be Play Next.

The crossfade seems to be working fine now but anything I can do for the play next to work?
