Re: Possible to add multiple tags for a single field ?

A semi-colon - ; - is the standard delimiter in all fields in the MP3 system which MM uses.

From my amateur viewpoint, this looks like MM is getting the multi-value separator wrong?

How can I get MM and Picard to tag things the same way?
Why do you think MM is getting it wrong? MM uses a semi-colon to separate multiple values of a tag category in all (most?) tag fields.

Re: trouble importing playlist from Catalina music app

Also MM misleadingly reports 0 files imported when it actually does import a playlist (which is, after all, a file). You'll have to look through the list of imported playlists to see if it actually did get imported.

Re: MM4 Gold: simple questions

No, copyright protected files can't be converted by MediaMonkey. Aaargh! Damn iTunes! How do people get around this then? There are apps ($) that claim to convert M4P to a usable format; I had mixed success with their trial versions. Other people have used iTunes Match ($) to do this. The way that ...

Re: Recommendation

GoneMad recognizes MM playlists and ratings. And, as recent comments demonstrate, it produces a better audio output than MMA. Of course you will still need MMA to sync the files; I don't think there is any other app that will read the data from MMW. AS to what you might be missing with MMW, I'd sugg...

Re: Freedb finally dead?

Freedb look-ups still worked for me until this last night, so looks like the ride is over. How do I set up MM4 to look at musicbrainz or another db for CD info? A better choice is to use a better ripping program, such as dbpoweramp or exact audio copy (the latter is free). Both give you more option...

Re: M4P Files No Longer Play in Version 1896

After exploring several suggested approaches, the one I found that works most consistently and reliably is to use iTunes to burn a disc as a music disc, not as an MP3 disc (iTunes has to be involved to deal with the DRM). Then read that music disc into MM. MM will not always find the disc in freedb ...

Re: MM Android poor audio

Can I infer by your response that I shouldn't expect MM to incorporate decent sound quality at some point? If you look at what they have done with MM5 (or not done), I think you would conclude that moving the dial on audio quality is not high on their list of things to do. When programs like JRiver...

Re: MM Android poor audio

You can still use MMA to sync with your desktop. Poweramp will find the files you synced.

It's not cheap in any way, but roon will definitely play directly from your desktop hard drive on your ipad with roon installed on both machines.

Re: Where are the files

The Poweramp app on my Huawei M5 found the files to MMW had synced to it - and did so by simply scanning the M5. MMA reported that the very directory in which Poweramp found the files has no files. Do you need the paid version of MMA to use FLAC files?
