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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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…

  8. 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"?

  9. 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

  10. Be clear about charges before installation

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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/

  13. 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.

  14. Merge Artists based on aliases

    Some musical genres may be more concerned by this feature than others, but there are many artists (including famous ones) who release music under aliases.

    At the moment, Bliss is "only able" to manage renaming and file sorting through the artist field. This feature idea would require a database connection such as discogs in order to scrape the "main" artist.

    Example : Aphex Twin in his long career has released records under the name of Aphex Twin, AFX, Richard D. James, GAK, Polygon Window...
    Renaming through Bliss would move all these files around with no connection whatsoever.

    Discogs manages to…

  15. folder.jpg not updated when hidden/system attributes are set

    Windows Media Player (v12 Windows 7) marks folder.jpg and AlbumArtSmall.jpg with the System and Hidden attributes. Bliss should be able to handle overwriting these.

  16. Handle folders containing Singles

    I have a main folder called "Full Albums" which contains the folder structures defines in my rules. I also have a number of folders like "Various - 00s", "Various - 90s" etc. Each of this folders contains lots of individual mp3 singles, each mp3 has it's own genre, year and file naming convention (without track numbers).

    The only way I could think of doing this is allowing multiple music folders, and allowing us to setup rulesets for a each folder (or group of folders).

  17. Add a table/details overview (in addition to the grid)

    Iit would be good to have a list/table view with album names down the left, and columns for other aspects like artist names, compliancy of different rules and maybe shortcuts to functionality, e.g. changing the art, file paths or tags within the overview screen.

    The analogy are file explorers: typically they allow grid/thumbnail views as well as detail views where files can be ordered by different columns, and different metadata about the files can be viewed in the column cells.

    Just as with the grid view, you would be able to filter by compliance or startsWith. The option would likely…

  18. Control over the case of a file/folder name

    Currently bliss always performs case sensitive comparisons of music tags to file/folder names. It should be optional to force bliss to consider what a file/folder name should be in light of a preferred case.

    For instance, when using <fileextension> to organise music files by their file type, it would be useful to be able to enforce capitals, otherwise on case sensitive file systems we may end with folders like mp3/, MP3/ and so on.

  19. Add setting for Compilation Directory name.

    Provide the ability to have a different folder for compilations.

    Currently, the artist seems to default to 'Various'. The directory name could begin 'Compilations' for example.

    Here's a similar idea to vary rules according to genre: http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/36753685-individual-rulesets-for-different-genres
