How can I exclude particular album(s) from autoplaylist
Greetings HA and Foobar2000 community.

I started using Foobar2000 a few days ago and am loving it so far, but I have one issue that I can't seem to figure out regarding autoplaylists.

What I'm trying to accomplish is the following: a “Best of” autoplaylist containing my top rated tracks from a particular artist, while excluding albums by that artist containing Remasters in the album name (to prevent duplicaates, alt. versions, etc). I can get query results for all the top rated tracks from the particular artist with the following query in Library → Search:

Code: [Select]
artist IS Led Zeppelin AND %rating% GREATER 3


My problem happens when I want to exclude particular albums that have Remasters in the album title from the results of the above query. It seems to me the NOT operator is what I should use but I must not be putting it in the correct place. Could someone please advise on the proper query formatting to accomplish what I'm trying to do?

Hi,

try this:

Code: [Select]
artist IS Led Zeppelin AND %rating% GREATER 3 AND NOT %album% HAS "Remasters"

I'm not use search option, but i think that you need to use something like: (artist IS Led Zeppelin AND %rating% GREATER 3) AND (NOT (album IS Remaster))
Good Luck!

Edit: Bollerkoop CODE is good, and better! Use that

Thank you so much. Both options did exactly what I needed. Now I'm all set.
