Thread: Sorting and searching box sets

  1. #1

    Sorting and searching box sets

    I have a wonderful box set of 7 CDs from Topic Records - Three Score and Ten: A Voice to the People. The ID tags seem to be in good shape and the CDs are numbered accordingly eg 1/7, 3/7 etc. in both CD Ripper and then in my QNAP.

    When I search in Asset I receive all 143 tracks without any capacity to find eg Disc Three.

    Any advice on this matter very welcome.

    Thank you

    John

    This section is blank for all tracks. How do I now populate this section, assuming the Artist should be the same as Album Artist?

    Hey John,

    if there are no album artists (tracks have no common artists) you don't need the tag album artist or keep it empty or fill it with something generic like "Various artists". But you should set the compilation flags for those albums.

    Thank you for taking time to reply, Dat Ei

    The compilation flag is consistently set to Yes when I review the Edit ID-tag and still there is no separation of the 7 CDs.

    Any other ideas?

    Ok, now I see the point. You want to have a separated view on those 7 CDs of this album. I understood the problem the other way round, that you see a separated view and want to have a joined one. I my opinion it works like it should (album orientated, not disc orientated). You could include the disc number in the filename, to identify the tracks and their discs if you use a file explorer to navigate through your folders. Or you separate your discs by including the disc number in the album name, but I do not recommend this.

    Many thanks, Dat Ei

    Apologies for lack of clarity at my end. I will explore your recommendation some more and see what happens. Most grateful to you.

    Best

    The player search facility would need to allow you to search on the Disc tag which is unlikely, unless you use something like foobar2000.
