Stop Album Artist from autopopulating

I can't understand why Media Monkey would autopopulate "Album Artist" same as the Album when updating. Why not leave the field blank if the information is not available. I'm constantly erasing the field. Is there a way to turn off autopopulate of the "Album Artist" field.

all tags not read on network drive

Will MM stop updating tags if a flash drive or HD drive files are erroneous or difficult to read? Is there a timeout, or error handling on fetching file information? On more than 1 occasion, I download ~6Gigs of mp3 files to network drive, MM does not show all the tag values. Only Title, Artist, and...

Re: for DJs show BPM tenth hundredth resolution [#3032]

Right Click on an mp3 property using Windows 7 and MS Explorer reports the decimal point Beats-per-minute. So should MediaMonkey follow Microsoft or continue to report incorrect rounded BPM? I look at a file using Itunes and the BPM property only accepts 3 digits number (no decimal) :--( :roll: usel...

Re: Disable autofill Album Artist

I don't see a need for Album Artist field. If I want to group a so called Album I put the relevant songs in a folder, name the folder after the Album & Album's Artist(s). WMP and ITunes are doing this all wrong just to handle issues where there's a compilation of songs as if "Various Artist" means s...

Re: Disable autofill Album Artist

It my understanding that Album-Artist is not an official tag (it what iTunes and now WMP uses to group songs together). So MM is following iTunes defacto use of Album-Artist. There is no field in ID3V2 for an Album-Artist field, a commenter points out the correct field is TPE2 "Band/Orchestra/Accomp...

Re: Disable autofill Album Artist

I'm not looking for correct fields or not, I'm looking for when I make the change the change persist, not guessing what I want in the field (100% wrong for what I want in the field, i.e. nothing, blank, zero). I don't care what album a song comes from, if an Album exist for the single, I could use t...

Re: Disable autofill Album Artist

When the DJ software reads the Album Artist field its not interpreted correctly, skews other field that come after Album-Artist, or nothing shows after field. I set the software to read ID3V2 at the head of the file. If I set it for ID3V1, tail of the file, (no field for Album-Artist) things get mor...

Re: Disable autofill Album Artist

If you don't care about the Album or Album Artist fields just hide them. Album Artist will be filled in when Artist and Album are known and Album Artist is empty. This is how MediaMonkey deals with knowing what files belong to an Album. I presume you could give all a space as value so nothing visib...

disable autostart when I plug iphone5

I don't always want to run MM whenever I plug in my iphone5 to charge from the PC. Is it possible to stop MM from popping up every time I plug up my iphone5?

Re: Disable autofill Album Artist

yes 100% of the time is 100% wrong because I want the field to be blank. I don't care about Album names, it get in the way of my collection. I deal exclusively with single never bought an album in my life time, and I been since the 12 inch single.

Re: for DJs show BPM tenth hundredth resolution [#3032]

I guess this request (show decimal in the BPM field) was permanently trashed since it been 7 years and counting?

Disable autofill Album Artist

How do I disable MM autofilling the Album-Artist field? MM writes to the field automatically placing the Artist name in the Artist-Album field. I'm constantly wiping the Album-Artist field since 100% of the time it is guessing incorrectly.

Re: Erase comment field text, then it reappears [#1502]

Do you have the MM option to store v1 & v2 tag or just one version. MM probably showing you whats in boths fields. Version 1 is put at the file end, Version 2 is put at the beginning. Kid3 will show you V1 & V2 fields separately so you can delete what ever version's field. V1 is character limited, V...
