Hello Martin,
thanks for this info.
A solution will only be available for version MMA 2.1.0.
Must be patient.

Greetings, Erwin

@martin.bohac ???
I think MMA uses NUMMERIC type variables to represent the contents of Disc# and Track#.
Yes,
the number encodes both the track number and the disc number. For multi-disc sets, this number will be 1xxx for tracks on the first disc, 2xxx for tracks on the second disc, etc.
for MMA the issue is tracked as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=10783

Such changes in Disk/Track # will most likely not be added till MMA 2.0 gets out. I was talking about corrections in MM5. Sorry if I misunderstood something. I even added https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=17707 to better handle LPs and prepare things for MMA sync.

Hello Peke,

Your statement: "I was more thinking about" - NO COMMENT.
By the way: I use MMA-free Beta and synchronize with a USB cable.
(Filename MMW and MMA: Title - Artist - AlbumName.ext)

Please, put on a second song from the same album in MMW: Disc# B and Track#2
Sync and show the screenshot of the album on the phone under MMA.

Best regards

Hello Peke,

sorry, but my experiences do not correspond to your description:

are letters and/or special characters in the fields Disc# or Track#,
a VINYL-ALBUM is not listed correctly in MMA under view "Album".
MMA can only generate a correct album-title-sequence from NUMBERS. I've tested it multiple times.

Correct entry of a VINYL-ALBUM in MMW:
VINYL ALBUM side A = Disc# 1 Track# 1,2,3 ...
VINYL ALBUM side B = Disc# 2 Track# 1,2,3 ...
...
Presentation afterwards in MMA:
101
102
103
201
202
203
...
What solution do you have?
Best regards

Hi Peke. Thanks. Any ideas on how I can achieve the same? Best. Ian

Hi,
I just checked and all of my LPs have A,B,C,D in Disk and 1,2,... and both in MM and in MMA they show normally.

Issue with track numbers (alpha-numeric in MMW become numeric duplicated when transferring to MMA).

Hello.

Did this one ever get fixed?

viewtopic.php?t=92567&sid=16336e240a0eb ... 72b231a099

I am busily digitising old vinyl LPs into MMW. Then "auto-tagging from web". This typically results, within MMW, in track numbers (for a double album) in the format A1, A2 . . . B1, B2 . . C1, C2 . . .D1, etc. Where A, B, C and D are the 'sides' of the two records. And 1, 2, 3 are the tracks on each side.

When I synch with MMA, this subtlety is completely lost and I end up with 4 lots of 'track 1', 4 of 'track 2' and so on (one from each side - A, B, C, D). This is a nuisance, as each LP will then *not* play the tracks in the right order, when played back in MMA.

Of course, I *can* go into each album in MMW and manually change this, so that the track numbering just goes, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 . . .N. But . . .a, that's a pain in the neck, and b. it seems a shame to lose valid information about which 'side' of the vinyl album is associated.

All thoughts and clues welcomed.
The versions I am using are MMW - 4.1.31.1919 and MMA - 1.4.2.0945

Cheers

Nodder

Feature Request (letters in track# field)

by Brilhasti » Thu Nov 29, 2018 11:00 am

I have thousands of files from old vinyl labels. They are labelled A, A1, B etc. MMA doesn't allow this in the track# field, MMW does. Please change the track# for MMA so it is like the one in MMW and can handle letters etc. It would also be nice if the track# displayed leading zeroes. If I have a track in MMW listed as 01, after syncing it gets displayed as 1.

Oh well Foobar does it perfectly so looks like I'll move to that.

Rather annoying as I've been a Gold member for 7 years and purchased the MMA Pro but if it can't handle letters in tracks, it's useless to me.

Re: Issue with track numbers after sync

Hugely disappointing. I have over 7000 files, whole labels with vinyl track numbers. A, B etc. Why can't the app simply display the track# like the windows version?

Image

I also never use disc numbers so why is that forced on us?

Re: Issue with track numbers after sync

by Lowlander » Tue Nov 27, 2018 11:18 am

I doubt it. It uses Disc# > Track# for sorting. I assume MMA only does the standard Track#.

Re: Issue with track numbers after sync

by Brilhasti » Tue Nov 27, 2018 8:38 am

Any more help with this? Is there no way for the track# field to display letters as it does in MMW? A1, B2 etc?
