Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Black Sabbath: "Black Sabbath" was released in 1970.
The 2019 repackaging of the 2016 reissue series of the 2012 remaster of the 1970 album is still Black Sabbath: "Black Sabbath" from 1970.

Sorting that after all the other Black Sabbath: "Black Sabbath"? Through a secondary tag.
It already is though:


There's no way to get that kind of granular information on a release though.
This is what you get for an individual release: https://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/release/?limit=100&query=reid:4cdc74f0-c13e-4019-9907-0fdf54f22205

Now some of those releases might have multiple release events & dates for different countries, but typically a remaster's reissue would get a different release group, and there's nothing tying it to a different one. We also can't split out by individual release events because some releases will have 100 release events (one for each country the album was available in), all with basically identical information. Not super helpful.

Basically I'd like the option to use the year part of the ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE to populate the field obtained by %date%. This date seems to be the date of the first ever release. Currently it is populated with the date of the selected release.
I see, so you want to ignore the selected release date and always use the ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE (in 4 or 8 digit format).

Just in case you weren't aware you can cut/copy the text from Orig. Release date and paste it in the Date text field and it will do what you want right now. I think it's a smart option though because lots of people don't need the release date.

General - (fb2k) / Is foobar converting with command line possible ?
Last post by Skie -
I wonder if it is possible to achieve some effect in foobar with command line.

I have folder with two files: MUSIC.FLAC and MUSIC.CUE.
Music .flac is one large file containing songs in flac format. After manually dragging the CUE file to Foob, they are all visible.
I want to convert one large MUSIC.FLAC file to separate FLAC files, on a 1 file 1 song basis. Manually it is a simple matter (drag the CUE into the foobar, select all files and CONVERT/flac). I wonder if it is possible to do the same with commandline (as part of the batch script).

You're welcome. Out of curiosity, was total <500 euro?
With necessary adapter cables on top (RCA to 6,3mm jack), it ended on 312 euro.
Nice. I was a bit surprised at the 3 original small monitors proposed given what I thought they would/should cost. Good to know you can still get a reasonable bargain within EU, 300 euro is near exact what you would pay here.
Hopefully you like them, there's plenty adjustability in highs, lows, etc.
And of course if you use computer/Foobar, very easy to apply more EQ.
They do well in blind tests, but of course sighted and/or in the hands of the incompetent, all bets are off.

Crashes.
I didn't get it. I wrote the code ...
Next time I'll try to be more attentive.
Without the code can not help.

Is there any way to access properties from other panels (read only) without on_notify callbacks?
i.e. if you know the window name (something set on the script which doesn't change), instead of forcing other script's authors to add some code for script interaction, you could simply get the properties from its panel and work with that.

For ex. my map script has a selection mode which should match the selection mode of WilB's Biography script if you use them together. I can warn about it with a popup, ask the author to expose that property with NotifyOthers() or offer a modified version by myself... but being able to read properties from any panel would solve that issue, while still rendering NotifyOthers useful for other use cases and be much cleaner.

It would greatly expand and simplify script interoperability for sure.

Are you meaning sort first by ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE and then regular date? In normal use when searching for an artist/album the original release date is always going to be the same and just sorting on that would result in all releases for the same album essentially being random.
