Auto Tagging Genre field while ripping!

Post by maxxzaxx » Mon May 11, 2020 8:50 am

Hi Developers, I wish to have an auto meta tagging function whereby when ripping (say SACD ISOs) the GENRE is filled in automatically. Musicbrainz does it on their standalone tagger and hoping this can be included in the EX CD Audio Converter!

Hoping for a quick response.

Thanks and Regards,

Marc

I tested it and the Genre is read from GD3 and WMP/Gracenote databases. For some reason it is not implemented in MusicBrainz query. I added this to the LIST (of things to do).

Hi, I have checked out and here is what I found...
1. I tried tagging with GD3 manually and the GENRE field is filled in in the EZ CD interface.
2. I tried ripping the same with GD3 pushed to top in the options and unchecked MusicBrainz, Discog and Freedb. The output files (flacs) after conversion does not have the GENRE tag filled.

What I am wishing is that the meta tags are automatically filled in while BATCH RIPPING the SACDs!
Hoping for a quick reply.

Thanks and regards,
Marc.

I've added retrieving Genre from MusicBrainz and Discogs databases for the next update. Genre-metadata is now retrieved from all databases.
