Editing Headings En Masse?

Postby DJ DannyG » Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:58 am

Is there a way to edit multiple songs headings together (or indeed any heading - comments/genre etc?)

i.e. if I downloaded "100 Best Soul Songs" is there a way of changing the 'Genre' on all of them to say 'Soul', rather than going into each song individually??

Thank you for any advice...

You can do it outside Mixxx, with a separate software, like https://quodlibet.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html.
Then you reload the tags in Mixxx.

Too bad quodlibet doesn't have a "Comments" header that Mixxx can read, and vice versa.

There is the MP* tag 'comments' which can be displayed and edited in Mixxx and a dedicated mp3 tag editor.

Quodlibet can edit all MP3 tag and Mixxx can read them. I do it for many years.

To dispaly the comment column, you have to go to Preferences/List of title/Visible column/Others. Here you add comment, in order to see it.

On tracks, if tag comment not present in the track, you can add it (one by one or for all tracks) with Right-Click and editing tags.

I agree that it is not totaly user friendly, but the search capability of Quodlibet is incredible in order to manage a music librairy.
