In addition to that, does anyone know of a way to get the "Track" column in Facets to list only the songs located under the currently selected "Album" in the "Albums" column?
Facets is a library viewer. Add a playlist viewer to your configuration. Either the default or simplaylist would be a good place to start. You can add it solo or insert it into a tabbed playlist container and you are good to go with any many playlists as tabs as you want.
It looks like I'm still having a problem with Foobar not remembering where my music collection is designated. The folder remains in the designated path under Preferences, listed as "monitoring", however, Foobar isn't bringing up the collection. I did open an mp3 in Foobar not included in my collection, which seems to have started the problem.
Simplaylist doesn't really fit my needs, so I still need a good alternative to Facets. I want to have three panes, one listing Artists, the next listing Albums, and the last listing Tracks. I want it to look clean and simple, so I don't want the same Artist to be listed about a thousand times for every mp3 or album I have on file for them. One artist at a time, one album at a time, one track at a time. Facets would be perfect if it would just highlight whatever current track I was playing.
maybe you post a picture? don't get this the wrong way, but i suspect it's you, who has some trouble displaying the library, and not foobar
not possible, because - i guess - unfortunately foobar has a hardcoded distinction between playlists and the libraryfacets shows the libraryif you are playing music, the songs are sent to some playlist, the actual library is actually never played - beware, this is just one more guess
