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

  1. Tags - Save column display settings

    It would be very useful if you can save your view/display settings for you tags.
    Now, Every time I go back to the tags page it displays the default columns, and I have to select again the Year and Genre columns.
    I know files may have different field tags applied, but this would be useful for Common Tags only

  2. Override artist case rules to enforce canonical spelling [was: Fix OST/O.S.T.]

    As discussed previously...

    Dan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented · August 21, 2015 10:37 ·

    Adding every artist name would not scale, so I want to solve this alongside the canonical artist rule. I think I could add a checkbox to the rule saying "if the artist is canonically correct, ignore the case rule".

    That said, OST are an interesting one! http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=OST&type=artist&method=indexed

    Could you add this as a new idea? The same fix can also be applied to album and track names.

  3. Individual rulesets for different locations.

    Since multiple music folders are close to implementation, I want to be able to specify different rulesets for different folders.

  5. 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.

  6. Identify MP3's with Progressive JPEG Album Art

    Progressive JPEG's are not widely compatible with music players .... specifically Mazda Connect in my case.

    It would be great to be able to identify MP3's with progressive Album Art and ideally flatten the image.

  7. Add album art aspect ratio to compliance

    99.9999% of album art is square as it is from a CD or vinyl cover, which is also square. Some album art online, while valid, is not square. Some are slightly rectangular, having the top and/or bottom slightly trimmed. This is annoying.

    If the cover art system could be told (optionally) to exclude any images that aren't 1:1 aspect ratio (within a certain percentage, say two or three pixels either way), so that all the images you get presented with (and it auto detects while fixing) are square it would overcome the problem.

    The cover art selector could have a…

  8. Use of ORIGINAL Release date instead of Reissue date and Album Label / Publisher

    As a long time collector the original release date has always been important to me for at least a couple reasons. Take a jazz artist like Miles Davis as a simple example whose work spans 4 decades. Knowing where a particular album falls historically within his body of work has more relevance / usefulness in my opinion than a reissue date that will continue to change over & over. Additionally, original release dates really help keep things in perspective for those of us that have been listening obsessively for years. It used to be easy to know approximately where music…

  9. Add ability to filter and print the activity log

    After Bliss has completed its library scan, it would be good to be able to identify those albums which Bliss touched and, more importantly, which ones it didn't (or couldn't).

    Being able to filter the activity log by "found non-compliant" or "modified" and then printing that filtered list would make it much easier to then go through and manually correct those albums

  10. Ability to define file permissions for Unix systems

    When Bliss modifies files on a Unix system it sets default file permissions of 644 using whatever owner and group that Bliss is running as. I would like to be able to define what permissions get applied to files, so I don't have to manually alter permissions if I want other users to be able to modify my music files.

  11. The creation of an album catalogue interface

    Having a seperate web page that can view your collection (from chosen location) and browse the album art assigned - from this you can choose to correct artwork through bliss, this would be an excellent way of browsing your collection and correcting artwork once bliss has finished scanning

  12. Date formatting rule (e.g. trim the date field to just the year)

    It would be helpful if you could force the date field to be just the year - as in, 1997/02/28 to simply 1997

  13. move subdirectories too when moving to new structure

    I happen to have a library of more than 4000 album ripped with EAC. I put rip info in an /INFO subdirectory of the album and the scanned album art (which can be multple files, sometimes whole booklets) in an /ART subdirectory. It is very nice that Bliss can reorganise my structure (and insert stuff like disc number, track number ane year) however after bliss is done, the original directories remain with their corresponding /ART and /INFO dirs. I don't want bliss to do anything with these files, consider them to be master information (like masters of your sourcefiles). But…

  14. allow once click fix for all items. not limited to 96 visible on each page.

    right now the "fix all visible" button doesn't seem to work (miught be a UI issue). Regardless I would like a button to fix all issues... not just the 96 visible on a page.

  15. Sort feature in the Tags screen

    Would allow sorting by column--artist, album, genre, track name.

  16. process improvements.

    I am processing 170,000 files. So I have some comments on this very good software...
    1) Please allow me to auto-accept size and track number changes without clicking each album
    2) Please have some intelligence in the Genre such that "country" automatically becomes "Country", (as well as "Singer-Songwriter --> Singer/Songwriter", "R&b --> R&B"), etc. And let me autoaccept those
    3) Please give me a way to clear out all uncessary information that is not part of the standard IDV tags (and clear out any comments, etc, that are part of the tags standard but are not necessary).
    4) Please don't…

  17. Don't alter the timestamps on the files

    Bliss alters the timestamp on each file it fixes, this is really unwelcome behaviour. The timestamp is an important part of the metadata and I don't want it altered. I know that it is possible to change the file without altering the timestamp (on NTFS at least), could this feature be added?

  18. Implement genre import from Last.fm

    Implement automatic genre import and assignement from Last.fm artist and track tags, allowing multiple genre and/or importing to other tag fields, with genre filters and genre translations (white lists, blacklists, prioritization)

  19. Ability to enter missing track number (or set to 00) for filenames

    I have a number of pieces that are the result of recording old cassettes, or sometimes albums, or pieces that I have recorded live, or lectures, or whatever, that simply do not HAVE track numbers.

    Bliss complains that they're uncompliant, because they don't HAVE a track number... which is fine. But I have to bring up some external tag editor because BLISS doesn't let me enter a track number. Ideally, a "if track is missing utterly, number them in alpha order in that directory automatically, and don't ask me" function would be best. Or, perhaps, a "Set to 00" button,…

  20. 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.
