Music Connect

New collection view : Vertical Cards!

July 7th, 2022

Recently introduced in the CLZ mobile apps and instantly very popular, so now available in all five Connect flavors too: the Card View.
(And… because Connect already had a view called “Card View”, we renamed the old view to “Horizontal Cards” and named the new one “Vertical Cards” here.)

Here’s how to switch to new “Vertical Cards” view: on the toolbar above your collection list, click the 2nd button from the left, called “Vertical Cards”.

Check out the screenshots below:

CLZ Music (Android)

April 4th, 2022

Fixed:

CLZ Music (Android)

v7.3: Back Cover images!

March 29th, 2022

Initially, when we created the mobile apps, we deliberately decided to leave out the back cover images, for performance, storage and bandwidth reasons. But with today’s fast internet speeds and fast devices with large storage.. it is time to change our minds!

Music Collector (Windows)

Fixed:

  • Various “Access Violation” errors fixed in the Link Albums screen

CLZ Music (Android)

v7.2: Progress Bars and Cancel buttons!

March 15th, 2022

In this update, no new features, just a nice improvement that makes existing functionality a bit better.

All actions in the app that can take a bit longer are now showing a nice progress bar!
This gives you some idea how long the action will take.
Also, the new Cancel button lets you stop actions, e.g. if you see it will take too long to do at this time.

The new progress bars are now shown when:

  • Adding multiple albums
  • Editing multiple albums
  • Removing multiple albums
  • Updating from Core


Music Collector (Windows)

v22.0.4: Various bug fixes

March 14th, 2022

Fixed:

  • Edit screen: Pick list popups for certain fields didn’t remember their sort order
  • Pre-fill wasn’t working after the “move to other collection status” popup


One of the most popular features we added to the Music Connect software in the past few years is the Pre-fill screen. You know, the screen that pops up when adding new albums from Core and lets you “pre-fill” some fields for the new additions, right there and then. Without having to go back and edit the entries afterwards. A big time-saver for most users.

The set of fields that is available on the Pre-fill screen has always been fixed, limited to Location, Owner, Purchase Date/Store/Price, Quantity and Tags.

However, after the release of this feature, we instantly started getting requests for more fields to be added to the Pre-fill screen. Which makes sense, I mean, if you always fill in a field that is not on the Pre-fill screen, you would have to “edit after adding” anyway, rendering the entire Pre-fill screen useless…

So today we are taking the Pre-fill feature to the next level by making the screen completely user-configurable. That is, to allow you to choose your own Pre-fill fields!

And while we were at it, we made some other related improvements. Here’s what’s new today:

  • User-configurable Pre-fill screen: choose your own fields
  • Pre-fill: new for Purchase Date: Fill with “Today”
  • The Pre-fill screen is now also used to set field defaults

Music Collector (Windows)

v22.0.3: Couple of bug fixes

March 3rd, 2022

Fixed:

  • Adding albums from music files or importing a file would cause albums to enter the database without a collection status
  • Fields in the Pre-fill screen could look bad on screens with high DPI
  • “Collection Status: Sold” was missing from various places
  • Setting an item to Collection Status: Sold could cause an access violation

Music Collector (Windows)

v22.0.2: Fixed a crash in Manage Pick Lists and a bug

February 24th, 2022

Fixed:

  • Crash when opening the Manage Pick Lists screen
  • Edit Album: Tracks were cleared when (re-)scanning a CD

v7.1: Improved Pre-fill screen: choose your own fields!

February 10th, 2022

One of the most popular features we added to the CLZ Music app in the past few years is the Pre-fill screen.

In today’s update we’re introducing new Add from Core settings screen, that lets you configure exactly which fields you want to download when adding new books.

While we are at it, we also tweaked the UI of the existing Update from Core settings and… we combined the two into ONE screens, with Add from Core / Update from Core tabs at top.
