Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? We really want to hear from you!

  1. automatic search and replace of genres

    With a look-up table, one could convert, for example, genres such as OBC, Broadway, Musicals, Original Cast, Cast Album and so forth all to the same, uniform genre (in this case, I might prefer to have them all tagged as Original Cast). This could also be used to reduce the number of genres. Yes, it reduces specificity but it might be nice to have all jazz listed as jazz, instead of "stride piano," "ragtime" "dixieland" "trad jazz" "modern jazz" "contemporary jazz" and so forth.

  3. For file organisation, create a new album artist variable to order artist names as Last, First.

    Create a new album artist token to order artist names as Last, First. Also order groups as "The Beatles" to "Beatles, The"

  4. Add a 'starts with' filter to the artist overview

    The album overview has a 'starts with' filter which enabled you to filter by the start character.

    The same option should be available for the artist overview.

  5. Automatic mirroring of music libraries to different music file formats

    While ripping lossless (to FLAC or some other codec) is always advised there are times when we need lossy music files.

    One example is for portable players. Lossless files take up a LOT of space, so it's more efficient to play OGGs or MP3s or whatever.

    In other cases, some music players simply don't work with certain codecs. iTunes doesn't play FLAC out-of-the-box, for instance.

    This idea would add a rule to maintain multiple mirrors of your music library. Your current music library becomes the source. You then declare multiple extra libraries, with the desired music file format in each…

  6. Option to alter memory consumption

    Currently, bliss as a service is chewing ~200Mb with consistently ~3% CPU cycles on a modern computer with a small library. Yes, it's mostly a Java issue (it loving memory and all), but when you also use your server for VM's, 4Gb starts to look a bit... weak... Also, reduction in CPU cycles = reduction in power bill.

    I would like an option where I could specify the ceiling of how much memory bliss should consume. The levels would be something like 64, 128, 256 MB.

  7. Ability to Enter a Custom Search String for Missing Album Art

    For instance, some of my albums have extra info in the album name such as (2009 Remaster). When bliss searches for album art, it includes this extra info in the search and (most of the time) doesn't find the album art. It would be nice if I could edit the search string that is being used (basically just to remove this extra info) so that I could get the proper art. A step further might be to have this happen automatically if no art is found, but that is probably asking too much.

  8. Implement styles and moods tagging from Allmusic.com

    The genre tagging from Allmusic.com is already implemented. Moods and styles would be an awesome addition.

  9. update reports on library status/new changes via email or messaging

    Reports via email or other messaging that notify you on any new albums/changes to your library and whether they are compliant - so when I rip a new CD on vortexbox then bliss works its magic and I get an email telling me whether its compliant or not, also an overall report on the state of my library would be good

  10. Provide a Way to Identify Whether Album Art has been Selected Automatically or Manually

    It would be useful to be able to differentiate between Album Art selected by Bliss and which has been selected by the user. This would allow for a quick verification of Bliss selections, whilst ignoring those albums which I have already chosen the art manually. Even better, if I could filter the display by this criteria (ie "Show Bliss Selections Only") then I would only be reviewing choices made by Bliss.

  11. Provide a "Preferred Size" Option for Selecting Album Art

    I am generally choosing Album Art at 500x500. I can obviously use min/max to reduce the number of options, but it would be an ideal alternative if I could also select "Preferred Size" and have Bliss choose album art which matches or is close - Max/Min size would still be useful to give to give Bliss a certain amount of leeway (or even better, you could choose to accept any art within say, 10% of this size).

  12. Be Able To Choose Album Art from Your Existing Collection

    For Double Albums, Bliss will sometimes fail to find a matching cover for Disc 2. You may have chosen a particular cover for Disc 1 and then find that the only covers available for Disc 2 do not match. This could be fixed if one of your options for choosing Cover Art was from your existing collection of covers - especially if it was shown in "Most Recently Added" order - you could choose the same cover as you chose for Disc 1 with a couple of clicks. At the moment, my only option is to separately upload cover.jog from…

  13. dry run

    do a dry run especially for the freeware;
    seeing the amount of "fixes" suddenly go down on my live library was terribly frightening.
    I really need to know what will be changed where, my library is too large to let random software do something on it.

  14. Better log output.

    Right now there isn't really any way to tell what is going on... Why not print messages to somewhere like "Embedded artwork from X into Y files of Z album"?

  15. Format track number as xx/yy (yy:album number of tracks)

    'Track number length at least' could host en additional entry to specify track as xx/yy

  16. Be clear about charges before installation

    I think the developer should be clearer about the £10 charge for 1000 "fixes".

  17. Dynamic playlists

    bliss should allow automatic playlist management.

    I should be able to define a playlist, its location, and how it is made up (e.g. using genre, artist, year etc information).

    When music files are added or changed, bliss changes the playlist as appropriate.

  18. Replay Gain / volume levelling rule

    bliss should add a Replay Gain or volume levelling rule so that all music in my music collection can be levelled for volume.

    As discussed: http://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2010/11/03/mp3-volume-replay-gain/

  19. Ignore compliance for certain albums

    Some albums just cannot be fixed because, for instance, their album art cannot be found anywhere. For the sake of achieving 100% compliance I'd like to mark these albums as 'ignored'. I want to be able to do it for any aspect of bliss, for instance file organisation (saying 'actually, the existing location is ok') or genre etc.

    Similar to http://bliss.uservoice.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/404839-add-the-ability-to-ignore-albums-where-correct-art .

  20. Summary of stats

    bliss should present a summary of music library statistics. For example, number of albums, of which how many are compliant and how many not. This could also be split by type of rule - e.g. how much cover art is compliant, how many files/folders are correct etc.
