That's correct!
Buying a Philips HDD120/00 made it make sense to copy my Cd's back onto my laptop
and what better program to manage the mp3 files but foobar2000!

I just want to say that I am a very happy user of your config. 

Of course, I had to make some changes to the code to suit my own tagging needs and It's been working very well. You can see a screenshot here (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/images/a/a6/TrackinfoPanel.PNG).

Hey

1st post - please indulge me.

Been using Azrael for a couple months now (great work Neksus) and like everyone I have tweaked a bit to suit my needs but I have been unable to figure out one thing -

I'd like the Artist column (which shows Album, Album Artist, Genre etc) to repeat the same behaviours at track 101-104 and 201-204 etc

To clarify further - I *think* neksus uses "$select($min(5,%tracknumber%)" to control what appears in the Artist column, but I'd like exactly the same information repeated @ 101, 201 etc.

I use 1xx and 2xx to indicate CD2/CD3 on my Rio Karma (reduces the number of repeated album names. If you have a Karma you'll probably understand this). I'd like to have foobar recognise those tracknumbers just as it would tracks 1-4 normally.

Thanks all for any help you can provide.

What came into my mind is to replace %tracknumber% with $right($num(%tracknumber%,3),2) .

well, for me, if there is an album has the %album artist% tag (and whatever it's containing), it means it's a various artists album (otherwise we would use the standard %artist% tag).
i personnaly use "various artists" for standard va albums or the artist name for electro mixes and such (eg carl cox, jeff mills ...).

edit: forgot to thank you for the update

Try to extract it in the different directory, and you'll get a zip file. Then extract it.

In the Vaious part of globals change %album artist% for %track artist%
Code: [Select]
// Various
$if($or(%various%,%va%,$and(%track artist%,$greater($len($trim(%album artist%)),0)),%performer%),is_various=1,
$if($stricmp($substr(%_directoryname%,0,5),'VA - '),is_various=1,
$if($stricmp($substr($directory(%_path%,2),0,5),'VA - '),is_various=1,
$if($strstr($upper(%_directoryname%),'VARIOUS ARTISTS'),is_various=1,
$if($strstr($upper($directory(%_path%,2)),'VARIOUS ARTISTS'),is_various=1,
$if($stricmp($substr(%_directoryname%,0,$len2($get(Various-Artists_indicator))),
$get(Various-Artists_indicator)),is_various=1,
$if($stricmp($substr($directory(%_path%,2),0,$len2($get(Various-Artists_indicator))),
$get(Various-Artists_indicator)),is_various=1,$if($strcmp(1,$get(dalbum)),
$if($stricmp(%_directoryname%,%album%),is_various=1)))))))))


Maybe more things need to be change due new remapping in tag but it works me

Seems like the directory contains "single" so they're assumed as single tracks.

Hi Neksus:

I did a little modifications in your config...I hope that it does not bother to you 

The changes.

Albums with %album artist% are displayed like various

Added [CD%disc%] in album

Leght and time elapsed in title column (more dinamic for long titles and lenghts)

Bonus, artist various and lenght take the colour of selectedtext or playingtext

Added $puts(album,XXXXXX) in color_scheme and $set_global(album,$get(album)) in Settings global color to make possible change album and artist text colour in Artist column (I suppose you forget added it because is present in previous releases...)

And a minimalist colour_scheme in black,white and grey

Here is a screenshot:

Added $puts(album,XXXXXX) in color_scheme and $set_global(album,$get(album)) in Settings global color to make possible change album and artist text colour in Artist column (I suppose you forget added it because is present in previous releases...)

Nope I removed that color on purpose!

The color schemes from 10 to 19 are not working.
ColumnsUI just displays white background with black text.

And finaly the Album Artist tag is integrated.

But as always a great config! My favourite since beginning!
Keep up the good work!

First, the praise: I absolutely love this scheme and I've never really used anything else with Columns UI since I found your first FCS back near the inception of the whole FCS trading craze.

Second, I don't know if you're taking suggestions, but there's two modifications I've made to your scheme that I liked having.  I have a directory for singles just like I'm guessing you do, so extrapolating single tracks based on the directory structure isn't a bad idea . . . except I run into a significant problem when the album name has 'single' in it!  So I changed the condition to be that 'single' was in the directory structure and not in the album name.  Worked well for me.

Secondly, I make a distinction in my tagging scheme that others may not make.  Both 'album artist' and 'various' imply a various artist CD, but I try to make them mutually exclusive with 'album artist' taking precedence if they both exist.  For me, 'album artist' means one person did most of the CD or featured most prevalently in it, but there were contributing artists of note.  'Various' means that the whole CD is just a grab bag.

So what I do when listing the titles from an 'is_various' album is I check if the 'artist' field is equivalent to the 'album artist' field and if it is, I don't display it.  Since the album artist is already displayed as the disc owner, and any time there is an additional/different artist they're displayed, I feel there's no ambiguity and it removes the redundancy of the artist name appearing 10 times and only not appearing 3/4.

Just a couple thoughts!  Keep up the good work, you're awesome

Sounds reasonable enough, but I don't use the album artist tag at all!
And if a cd contains more then one artist it is a various in my eyes!
Can you give me an example of a cd which has 3/4 of the songs by one artist and the 1/4 of various artists?

Yeah I think so. I think it could be related to sorting. As you see on the screens the song is listed as VA but is sorted wrong. Hope you understand what I mean

And if a cd contains more then one artist it is a various in my eyes!
Can you give me an example of a cd which has 3/4 of the songs by one artist and the 1/4 of various artists?


Basically, a various album to me is a compilation, with a different big name for each track.  The situation where I use album artist is where a CD might have a few tracks with duets with other well-known artists, or a guest track, or something.  I want the supporting artist/s included in an additional artist tag, but when I do my automatic sorting by albums I need to sort by the album artist, the person who's actually in charge of the work.

This occurs a lot in soundtracks.  For instance, in the soundtrack from Flubber, there are 18 tracks.  17 are done by Danny Elfman, and the 18th track is done by KC & The Sunshine Band.  Now I want KC to get their credit (for whatever that's worth), but it's really, really clear that Danny Elfman is the album artist.  Just because KC did one track does not make it a various artist album.

In a lot of soundtracks (where I use album artist the most), there will be one person who did the vast majority of the work and then a notable for 1-4 tracks or so.  But also I'll give an artist tag to big names who feature in something, so that I can find those tracks if I want to.  For example when Ray Charles features in Billy Joel's Baby Grand.  The album still belongs to Billy, but Ray is certainly an artist to note on the track.  So I want to acknowledge the support of other artists either in feature roles or in a few included tracks as in soundtracks, but the album belongs to one person.

Does that make sense?  It might be peculiar to the way I treat album artist, but to me the reason to use 'album artist'='artist name' intead of 'various'=1 is because the album is predominately one artist and you want to have a way to recognize which person that is.  Otherwise, 'various'=1 is much more economical.

Well I would just add the guest artist name to the end of the title with feat. 'name' or something like that!
Actually I normally don't have any reference to guest artists.
Because I really don't care about them!

In the other case (soundtrack) I can see you point.
The question is if you are the only one using the tags like that or not!

I have a question regarding a formatting.

Im using the latest azreal and its great, the only thing that i would like to do is to 'force' an album mode for designated %album% values where those files dont have a %tacknumber% value.

for instance I have over 300 Essential Mixes.  in aevery one the %album%=Essential Mix.  they all have different %artist% values and dont have any tracknumbers.  I would like for all the files with this album value to go into Album mode, with BBC Radio 1, or Various Artists as the artist, and Essential Mix in the album. 

Is there a way to force album mode, kind of the opposite to force single mode with out having to auto tracknumber all the files.

I have tried everything i can comprehend (which unfortuneately isnt much at this point) and havent had any luck.

Well since my album mode is built on tracknumbering I would say no!
You could try to code some sort of auto/guessing/hacking thingy when the album is Essential Mixes!
But I don't think I'm going for it!

Thanks for this awnser 
But I'm using foobar 0.9 beta 5 & ui_columns-0.1.3-pa12...
In fact, I installed foobar 0.9 after deleting foobar2000 & his folder in application data". Then, I put "msvcp71.dll" &"msvcr71.dll" in foobar main folder, and "foo_ui_columns.dll" in components folder.
I ran this program, then i choosed columns ui as interface module.
In the options of ui_columns, I imported the modified file of azrael.fcs, then I clicked on "saveall" button but nothing changed !!
But if i'm using a non-modified version of azrael.fcs, it works perfectly...
Any idea ?

Thanks, I like the default color scheme, but is the currently playing track supposed to have a "0" added to the number when you select another song? Play a song, click another song without playing it and the currently playing one has a zero added to both its list and track number. Seems strange to me, not sure if its a bug in 5.7 RC2

I just managed to fix it myself but your solution is probably cleaner (problem seemed to be the usage of %singletrack% at various places instead of using %is_single%). 

One last thing: The end lines (at the end of a playlist) have little spaces where the left and right border colums of the tracknumber column are when the last track of the playlist is a single track (if the last track is part of an album it looks OK).

Thanks for your patience!

edit:
I just realized that the last and first track of a playlist are supposed to have a line. While the last track now always has a correct line, the first doesn't have any at all if it is a single track (works correctly with the first track being an album track).

To the best of my knowledge yes that is possible! But you need to code some sorting string to do that!

I updated to your latest version and now I have some problems again. See here (http://beingalink.de/temp/azrael.png).

Singletracks with tracknumber 1 or 2 (don't know if also others) get that line drawn and the last track in a playlist doesn't have a complete line below (also in album mode).

Again: singletrack if no album_gain and singletrack if no album tag is activated

Otherwise nice theme additions!

Try clicking the big button labled "Playlist view display settings" on the "Playlist View" tab of the ColumnsUI config. At the bottom of the box that pops up you should see an entry called "Selected item frame colour." Click it.

I think you can handle it from there.

I use foobar 0.9 beta 8, with columns_ui and the newest release of Azrael.

My directory structure is Artist\Album\Tracknumber Title, and my files are all tagged appropriately (I'm still figuring out how I'm going to do various artists). I've got quite a few "albums" of various unreleased/live stuff from artists, and they normally didn't have Tracknumber tags, for obvious reasons. However, I would still prefer them to be displayed as an "album". Could there be an option in Azrael for this, or alternatively, what should I change to enable this?

Well the album mode of Azrael is based on tracknumbering,
so doing a "Auto track number" on the albums will do the trick and make them look like albums!

Also for various artists you can add the tag "various=1" this will make them so as various artist albums!

Very good looking theme, thanks!

But I have one question:
Is there any way to make albums appear as albums without retagging them?
The reason is I have a lot of scene mp3-releases, and unfortunately most groups just don't bother tagging the tracks correctly... And to be allowed to share my music I musn't retag the files...

Do you know about ReplayGain?
It automatically adjusts the volume so that you don't need to. It's really useful. That red T shows up because some of your songs haven't been ReplayGained.

Else, if you don't care about ReplayGain, you can remove the colomn by going to:Foobar2000 > Preferenes > Display > Columns UI > Playlist view. Then click the tab "Columns". Look down the left side and find "Title". Then look right in the display tab. Scroll to the bottom and find a section about ReplayGain and delete it.

He gave you bad advice.  Please put back the code you deleted.  All you have to do to get rid of that "T" is go to foobar2000|Preferences|Display|Columns UI|Playlist view, select the Globals tab, and where it says:

Code: [Select]
//Show ReplayGain info in title column
//0 = No, 1 = Yes

The string for 5.7 and the screenshot on the website don't really match. I actually prefer the one in the website.

Have a look

Website » http://neksus.wincustomize.com/photos.aspx?a=1&p=4&view=full (http://neksus.wincustomize.com/photos.aspx?a=1&p=4&view=full)
Here » http://img149.imageshack.us/my.php?image=fb2kazrael3um.png (http://img149.imageshack.us/my.php?image=fb2kazrael3um.png)

Look at the album info (date and genre) and at the tracks numbers. Unfortunately I don't know how to change the strings.

Thank you very much!

@chilln _1ce
Glad to hear you figured it out

@ciki
Albumlist is a plugin for columns_ui also available on Musicmusic's website, there's also a help page there  Also try looking in the Columns UI thread in this forum.

@Xenion
Please provide a screenshot otherwise it is hard to imagine what the problem is

@Rash
Well, design changes have happende since the Purple screenshot was taken,
purple was one of the first colorschemes. It is possible to download old versions of Azrael where you can try to figure out what to work with. I'm affraid design changes normally are permanent on my part sry

Hello!

I downloaded Azrael and I also have the latest version of Columns_UI (0.1.3 pre-alpha 17v6) and foobar 0.9, but when I import the latest Azrael I get the whole playlist to be black. 

It worked great with foobar 0.8.3 and older versions of Azrael, but not the newest. Has anyone else had this experience and what should I do to solve this? I really love the Azrael config otherwise.

@neksus:

can this code be updated using the new .9 variables for playcounts?

.9 has Playback Statistics (http://foobar2000.org/components/foo_playcount.zip) which
Quote
Collects statistics about tracks from your Media Library being played. Statistics can be displayed using %last_played% and %play_count%, or using a context menu command.

If you could update playcount column code using the new variables, that would be awesome.

hey neksus
i love your config
i was wondering if you can change something though
i have a few va albums that are 2 discs ie main dir va-blah blah, sub dir disc1,disc2
and when that happens the artist column no longer display "Various Artists" instead it displays the first track's artist.  is there anyway to change that?

i would also like to ask how i can add the codec information on the in the artist column track 3. as of right now it's
track 1 showing artist tab(10) genre
track 2 showing album tab(10) year

i would like
track 3 to show the codec information

best option would be to let ppl pick where they want their info tho
but i'm sure that's a lot of extra coding ;p

you help would be much appreicated 8)

Just change the following line in Globals -> Variables:

Code: [Select]
// Various
$if($or(%various%,%va%,$and(%album artist%,$greater($len($trim(%album artist%)),0)),%performer%),is_various=1,


That it looks like this:

Code: [Select]
// Various
$if($or(%various%,%va%,$and($meta(album artist),$greater($len($trim($meta(album artist))),0)),%performer%),is_various=1,



As you can see %album artist% is exchanged to meta(album artist). So if %album artist% is not set, it will not return %artist%

You can also try this (http://rapidshare.de/files/18934557/azrael-ram.fcs.html) fcs. It's Azrael, but slightly changed by me.

I would also appreciate some guidance on this. I cannot figure out what to change in the artist column...

^^ Im wondering about that too..

also I have this for my foobar2000 0.8.3 config, I modded some colors from the now defunct Dark & Evil scheme:
(http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/392/foobar200083bo4.th.png) (http://img20.imageshack.us/my.php?image=foobar200083bo4.png)

How can I change the abum/artist/date/genre info column so they stay one color even when highlighted? I've kinda gotten used to my old config and I'd like to port it over to the 0.9.x versions. However, I can't seem to find the option to change it. I've been messing around for hours trying to figure out what to tweak. The only thing I've managed to tweak right is the tracknumbers column...

Anyway, thanks for the awesome foo style

I have a playlist for singles but is it possible not to display the album abbreviated name next to the artist in this mode? And.. is it possible to change the playlist name from -s- to something else and still display the playlist in Singles mode?

Playlist Dropdown (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=44703)

I want there to be a black border at the bottom of the Album!

If there are no single tracks it is nearly working, then I have a black border at the bottom of all fields except the white Artist&Album field (where Spandau Ballet is written)!

Yes I mean a normal mp3-tag, and it needs to be added to the lasttrack of an album.

Anyone got a solution?


First, you will need to have the tag "TOTALTRACKS" in your files, which holds the number of tracks on the disc. This will be added by default if you use the "auto track number" tool in the file properties. Then add this to the global variables where the lasttrack variable is defined (look for "// Lasttrack"):

$if($strcmp(%tracknumber%,[%totaltracks%]),$set_global(lasttrack,1))
