    Typically this would mean a conversion from A or B to DISCNUMBER 1, C and D to 2 etc. However there's also autocoupled releases, where A and D are DISCNUMBER 1, C and B are 2. Luckily that is recorded in our metadata so this is definitely a possibility.

    Could you give some examples of album and artist names this leads to? I assume you're just talking about album and artist?

    This sounds like http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/31738582-derived-tags , would you agree?

    Agree - if an album is named incorrectly and an album is "split" this will mean duplication detection will not work across that album - the album name needs to be fixed first.

    Yeah, this is confusing. It should be a red X or a green tick. I'll watch out for this.

    Yeah - I was actually wondering if simply varying the case of the token would be elegant:

    <TRACK NAME>
    <track name>
    <Track name>
    <Track Name>

    Unfortunately it's difficult to communicate all capitalisation possibilities in that way. But simply "parameterising" the token could work:

    <track name:uppercase>
    <track name:lowercase>
    <track name:sentencecase>
    <track name:titlecase>

    Yeah, I can understand. Personally I would suggest just performing a copy to a consistent name. How you'd do this depends on your OS...

    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?

    Yeah, that's right. Maybe you want something like http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2739754-automatically-complete-album-artist ?

    The reason I'm a bit reticent to add AA editing functionality to the album page is it makes it (the page) more complicated. If you don't know anything about AA then you have to ask yourself the question - what's the difference between these two artists?

    Another approach would be to make the Tags panel easier to multi-paste, e.g. select the AA column and ctrl+V.

    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 adding this. I think this occurs for releases > 99 tracks. It was done as a short term (ish) workaround to memory problems if a large album was fingerprinted. We could definitely do something to fix this though...

    Note you can add your own genres - type "Cajun" then press the tab or comma key.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    > If you try to fix a track name or meta after fixing the path, then the queue won’t be able to process as the track is not to be found anymore before a new scan is made and location is re assessed.

    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.

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