Music Collector (Windows)

v20.1 Improved music file cataloging

February 26th, 2020

This one is for the music file catalogers among you! In this version 20.1, we have enhanced the music file cataloging features of Music Collector and added support for more file formats.

What’s new?

  • Better reading/writing of file tags:
    • Support for FLAC file tags (READ/WRITE) + covers and disc indexes.
    • Support for DSF file tags (READ ONLY).
    • Support for AIF file tags (READ ONLY).
    • Support for ID3v2 tags (READING) (ID3v3 was already supported).
    • If the tags for number of discs for your music files is off, the program will recognise the issue, and won’t create empty discs.
  • Better parsing of folders and file structure:
    • Improved album parsing based on folder structure (also looks at disc indexes or disc numbers in folder titles).
    • The program now tries to look for CD1/CD2 or Disc 1/Disc 2 folders and use that information accordingly.
    • New Parse Settings button that takes you to the Options screen to add “parse formats”.
    • Creating a new parse format: You can now click a parse item to add it.
  • Edit Screen: you can now browse and select multiple files in one go to add to the file links tab of an album.

Now recognises multiple file tags better and groups multi-disc albums better:

Now finds the cover inside FLAC files:

Fixed:

  • Submitting an album to Core could generate a wrong error.
