    Re: Support of Gracenote DB

    Gracenote aim for monopoly. Years ago they ripped the community off CDDB when they bought and commercialized it. Still demanding to be exclusive to permit a license. I say boycott that scam business.

    That's a pity. While I understand that XP is old, it's still the best Windows version when you need a lightweight OS for an offline server. I run Asset on a somewhat older laptop and Vista/7/8/10 are...

    Re: Sorting by Album release Oldest first

    You have 2 options:

    Either use ALBUM SORT and tag e.g. "1969 - Abbey Road". Note the space between ALBUM and SORT. Also set the handling of sorting tags in the configuration.

    Or try the new R7...

    Beta 4 doesn't install in XP. No problems in Windows 10 except there's still the problem with indexing album type (or anything starting with album). The solution is the same as before, i.e. writing...

    Hi GBrown! Were you using Mp3tag from scratch, not just to make the edit? Mp3tag writes TPE2 for AlbumArtist, and that as well as Album Artist works in R7.

    I'm interested cause I have a somewhat...

    Yes it is. Updating or adding tags is easy, you only need a tag editor. PerfectTUNES from dBpoweramp is a good choice, and you have some other taggers here:...

    Re: Separating albums and singles in Asset

    There is Additional > Browse by folders in Asset to browse on the disk.

    In my library though, the singles are not in one place on the hard disk, but in subfolders of the artists.

    So to easily...

    Re: Upstream Art how too?

    So Asset prefers to strip the filenames. That leads me to ask:

    In a big library, would Asset load/scan faster if the artist art files were prepared with stripped filenames to begin with?

    Re: Asset Year Ascending vs Descending

    You can tag e.g. "ALBUM SORT=1969 - Abbey Road" and then select your preferred handling of sorting tags in the settings.

    Then when you browse by ALBUM they will be sorted chronologically.

    Re: Upstream Art how too?

    That is not correct, in Windows it's case-insensitive, with or without spaces. All of these works:

    "Bob Dylan.png", "bob dylan.png", "BobDylan.png" and "bobdylan.png".

    Hello monsterjazzlick. Alternatively you could backup ARTIST SORT to BACKUP ARTIST SORT and then delete ARTIST SORT.

    Re: Does Asset read the TBPM field?

    It turns out that you need to index TEMPO if you want Asset to read the TBPM field in mp3's... Indexing BPM does not work for mp3, but is needed for FLAC.

    The workaround, since you obviously want...

    Any input on this?

    I have tried Asset R6 and R7, ID3v2.3 and ID3v2.4, different tagging software - nothing works.

    FLAC no problem.

    Does Asset read the TBPM field?

    I'm trying to index BPM in Asset and it works with FLAC but not mp3.

    It seems that the TBPM field for ID3 tags is not supported?

    Re: Blending genres - how to do?

    My suggestion would be to update your tags for the desired outcome.

    You could use multiples:
    GENRE=Rock; Hard Rock

    Alternatively, you could implement STYLE:
    GENRE=Rock
    STYLE=Hard Rock
