      I'm guessing it comes from audio fingerprinting...

      AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

      Yes; at the moment we don't allow a separate manual search, and picking the releases to link could be easier.

      AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

      Good point. Also, more generally, we could attempt to lower the score of albums which aren't from the locality of the user. Or maybe that's trying to be too clever.

        When you edit the artist name, if the AA tag is already set, the changed artist name will be used for AA.

        Does this relate to when you have a missing AA?

          Thanks for posting this - my initial reaction was: "that's already done" - then I realised it's just track name and number that's done...

            Thanks - I ran into this myself today. You're right - it's when there is no write access.

              Yeah - you can't. _All_ of the filenames are used. I can see the use here (I think) - you want to just work with what you have. But wouldn't you also rather change all artwork to a common name, if you could?

                Don't you think this is specific to the system though? For example, I have a "music" user on my home server and that's what bliss runs as. That's not appropriate to everyone and is, in fact, an impediment for quick set up.

                Generally I would advise *never* to install/run as root. Well, maybe install, but with subsequent changes to make sure it doesn't run as root.

                  I agree this is a problem. Two other potential solutions:

                  1) Don't rescan, just save the update to the allowed list (pop up a message to say a rescan will be required).
                  2) Add a confirmation before the rescan begins.

                    Actually - that should work just fine. It's a bug if it doesn't - please email support@blisshq.com

                    > Some drastic measures like deleting may be only available when track names and album etc… things that allows to make sure the track what it pretends to be are actually finalized. I felt like there is a right order to do things.

                    Interesting - currently all rules run at the same level and don't really know about each others' existence. So the integrity rule wouldn't know whether the track names are "finalised" and, even if the correctness rule was enabled and the album marked as compliant, it can't differentiate between that and the correctness rule being disabled.

                    We would have to define which file would "win" when a group of duplicates is found.

                    A manual option to do this would be the first stage before http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/6985890-automatic-removal-of-duplicate-artwork .

                      It does mean you would end up with a lot of "albums" with only one track in them though. Is that not a problem?

                      AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

                      I think I understand, you want to change the tracks in a compilation so they look like they come from an album instead?

                      I can see this being useful for one-artist compilations where some tracks come from the same album.

                      But is this still useful for various artists compilations where every track would be from a different original release?

                        Thanks. I'm going to slightly change the title to tie this into http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/5490000-individual-rulesets-for-different-locations which is a similar idea but for different root folders.

                          Having two instances might work if you were strict about the settings, although liable to confusion if both instances are looking at the same files and trying to do different things to them.

                          This sounds a bit like rulesets - https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/08/01/ruleset-selecta/

                            Agree - currently you should have the choice of both files.

                              I looked to do this today, but unfortunately there's no way to contribute a "sophisticated" custom rule at the moment. I'll have to build this into a new version...

                              AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

                              Yep, ok. You're right, I'd like to build in a script editor, but haven't got to this yet.

                              The other thing is that the regex rules which are the "dumbed down" custom rules don't allow variables (e.g. the artist) to be specified - instead they expect a literal string or a string using the groups captured in the regex.

                              However there is a more sophisticated type of custom rule, used by some of the rules shipped with bliss, that might work. I'll try to get some time to look at this tomorrow.

                              Regarding the choice of albums - this can of course be done at the moment by pointing bliss at different folders, but that's obviously cumbersome!

                              AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

                              I would break this down to two parts.

                              The latter part is to an extent already done - https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/10/25/setting-various-artists-name/

                              The former part is the "If artist is beatles" bit. This I disagree with and would like to see the same basic principle achieved as per https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/08/01/ruleset-selecta/ . This avoids too much logic in the rules.

                                    We haven't been able to replicate this. We have tried having an album with half one genre, half another, and no AA tags. We have then used both the album's "edit" button to change the genre but this worked regardless of AA tags...

                                    Thanks for this extra detective work, it will make it easier to find the issue!

                                    This sounds like an odd one. Can you recreate it, then send a debug archive to us at support@blisshq.com. Could you also send the exact steps?

                                      This should happen. Can you send a debug archive to support@blisshq.com and we can look into the cause?

                                          I would prefer to do this by making the website as responsive and mobile friendly as possible. Were there particular areas you found hard to use?

                                            This would also be useful for having your own fields calculated from other data - https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/10/03/derived-tags/

                                            "Unknown" doesn't mean the album is unknown, it means the album's _compliance_ is unknown, i.e. whether it obeys the rules or not.

                                            Normally this is indicative of another problem - send a debug archive to us as per https://www.blisshq.com/support/reporting-problems.html Thanks!

                                            Great ideas. The main progress has been identifying a way of fixing these problems, although work has not begun on them yet.

                                            Ignoring certain compliance for certain albums can be seen as a special case of https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/08/01/ruleset-selecta/ - i.e. the "selector" selects this album in particular, and the ruleset assigned to that selector is the same as otherwise, except with the "ignored" rule removed.

                                            Are you saying you want the subtitles in the album name, or just that bliss is matching to the incorrect release?

                                            One thing that might be useful is the ability to choose a subset of the Linked Releases to use.

                                            Yes, good example.

                                            Just wanted to make a note to myself...

                                            Rather than specific "ignore" functionality this should work by implementing "selectors". Create a new selector for this specific album, with a slightly-changed ruleset.

                                            This would be preferable, because selectors are a more powerful, less specific implementation and it should mean less code overall.

                                            Yes, although the way I look at it is having a "selector" to which rules can be applied, e.g.

                                            select all albums where genre = "christmas" => [specific rules]

                                            I just have a natural aversion to conditional statements :D

                                            Nice idea! Might need to add that as a separate idea, though... I'll close this once "ignore" is implemented.
