bliss

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

  1. mediamonkey like renaming options

    Ad if and left statements to renaming would make this just about perfect

    example:
    $left(\Music\$if(<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=various,<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=techno,<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=soundtrack,_<Album Artist>,<Album Artist@1>&lt;Album Artist>))),<Artist@1>&lt;Artist>)\$if(<Album>,$if(<Year>,<Year> - )<Album>)\$if(<track#>,<track#> - )<Artist> - <Title>,240)

    would produce:
    \Music\A\A Perfect Circle\2004 - eMOTIVe\02 - A Perfect Circle - Imagine.mp3
    \Music\Z\ZZ Top\1983 - Eliminator\01 - ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'.mp3
    \Music_Soundtrack\2006 - V for Vendetta\09 - Cat Power - I Found a Reason.mp3
    \Music_Techno\1991 - XL Recordings- The Second Chapter\07 - Cubic 22 - Night in Motion (Original mix).flac
    \Music_Various\2007 - Endzeit Bunkertracks, Act 3 (disc 2- Torture session)\01 - Faderhead - Dirtygrrrls…

  2. Allow me to enter the correct file name/path when that is the non-compliance error

    when I get a non compliance error, the program is not offering n option for me to enter a fix, and no automatic fix is offered, so I have to browse the folder andattempt a fix. I'm not sure why

  3. Custom Folder image for compilation folders

    In the blog, you wrote:

    .. bliss tries to work out whether the directory in which the tracks
    .. are stored is used exclusively for that one album. Otherwise,
    .. some music players may use the artwork as the art for other
    .. albums. Sometimes you may have a directory that stores
    .. multiple miscellaneous tracks from different albums.

    which is cool, but it would be nice if I could assign custom art to the FOLDER as well.

    It's wonderful that bliss gets the right art into each song, but when viewing the tree structure in some players, the folder.jpg…

  4. Auto tag compilations

    bliss should auto tag compilations. I would like bliss to tag every album that has either Various Arist (or some other similar moniker in a defined set) in Album Artist tag with the compilation tag and tag every album that has the compilation tag with the same Various Artists title in the Album Artist tag.

    See also http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1760321-add-setting-for-compilation-directory-name-seems- which occurs because the "various artists" alias in bliss is hardcoded to "Various".

    The reason for me wanting this is so that I can get control over all my compilationalbums when I look through my album collection on my music player. If…

  5. List recently added albums first

    Sometimes album art is added and the album is compliant, but it was a slightly different cover to the one you wanted e.g. special edition.

    An option to list recently added albums first, would be excellent so you can easily see them as they are added, and select alternative album art.

  6. Compilation specific file org pattern

    The thing is that I have a lot of albums (4000 and more coming in) and the naming scheme for compilations varies somewhat. Some are tagged as a compilation (with the compilation tag), others are tagged with Various Artists in the Album Artist tag.

    So I would like bliss to move all albums that are tagged with the compilation tag (see http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2290707-auto-tag-compilations ) and has Various Artists as Album Artist into the Various Artists folder on my server (and hence rename the folder- and file-name).

    Therefore, I want a specific file org pattern for compilations.

  7. 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.

  9. 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"

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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).

  18. 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…

  19. 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"?

  20. 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
