Music Collector (Windows)

19.3: Many more fields now sync with the CLZ Cloud (inc. Back Cover)!

October 18th, 2019

With all the big comic and game related releases going on, it has been a few months since the last Music Collector update. But we didn’t forget you! In the background, we have been “secretly” working on a big update, which is available now as version 19.3!

Here’s what’s new:

  • Many more fields now sync with the CLZ Cloud / Music Connect:
    • Classical music fields, like Conductor, Orchestra, Composers
    • Recording specific fields, like Studio, Date, Live, Sound
    • Extras
    • AND the Back Cover image!
  • The Location field has been moved to the bottom of the Edit Screen
  • Collection Status field is now a dropdown menu

Many fields added to the sync

We’ve added many fields to the sync with CLZ Cloud:

  • Conductor
  • Orchestra
  • Composer (multiple composers supported now, including their sortnames)
  • Studio
  • Recording Date
  • Live: Yes/No
  • Sound: Mono/Stereo/Hi-Res Stereo/Multi-channel
  • Extras
  • Back Cover image!

IMPORTANT: after the update a FULL sync to cloud is required!

Please note that after updating your software to version 19.3, Music Collector needs to Sync to CLZ Cloud all albums that contains information in one or more of the above new sync fields. This is necessary to upload your data for the above new cloud sync fields.

We are aware this can take a long time, especially for large collections, but there really is no way around this, sorry.

What about the CLZ Music mobile app?

We’ll be adding the new fields (except back cover for now) to the CLZ Music mobile app as soon as possible.

Back Covers

With this big update for Music Collector we’re adding custom back covers to the sync!

We introduced a new checkbox “Custom Image” in the Edit screen for back covers of album entries.
This checkbox will be automatically checked when you replace the Core image, e.g. by using Find Cover Online, by dragging and dropping or by using the Browse button to add a local image.

Once this Custom Image box is checked, that cover will automatically sync to and from the CLZ Cloud.

Once a cover is marked as custom, it will always stay marked as custom, so that even if you clear your cloud and sync everything again, they will re-upload automatically.

Modifications to the edit screen

  • The Location field has been moved to the bottom of the Edit Screen
  • Collection Status field is now a dropdown menu
