Album Publishing file name fields

Postby archive » Wed Jun 24, 2015 22:51

Can we have more options from the CD/SACD tab General Info section appear as usable file name fields during Album Publishing? I'd love to see (at least):

Disc Title
Master ID Code
Ref Code

This would really help with the automatic generation of logical file names when an album has multiple versions. Thanks!

Well, <DiskTitle> is already there...

Regarding Master ID Code or Ref. Code, <DiskNum> looked promising for a second, until I realized that it refers to multi-CD sets - Disk 1, Disk 2, etc. The problem with this is that I don't see where you can enter the disk number in the CD/SACD Tab, unless its generation is based on the number of Disks listed in the lower left section's "CD Album" column.

Also, it would still be nice if Apple Lossless could be one of the supported output formats - it is open source, last I checked...

Not really, it's actually a misnomer in it's current form, as it refers to the CD-Text Album Title. I would like to see the Disc Title field from the very top of the General Info area, such that if one had a CD Album named "MASTERv2-June252015", you could create a title string something like this:

<DISCPERFORMER>_<AlbumTitle>_<DiscTitle>_<SampRate><WordLength>

and get:

Understood. Perhaps this is yet another instance of the kludgy nature of Album Publishing being grafted awkwardly on top of Disk creation. It really should be its own thing, in its own Tab - of course with the option to share information between Tags and CD Text.

However, the information found in this forum discussion - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11276#p35104 - might give you some ideas for a possible workaround until such time...

I think it should still be integrated and that the Disc publishing concept should die. DP is just a special form of AP, where less than 99 tracks is the restriction. We should have a basic named markers concept defining the clips and then be able to "publish" based on those named marker definitions and the output format, dither, SRC etc.

Named markers should default the name to the filename of the first clip in the named marker region.

The ninety-nine tracks limitation is not as great an issue, in my opinion, as is the limitation to Marker placement to the CD Frame scale (75 per second). Hopefully a future implementation of AP will be able to work with a finer (sample based) degree of timing accuracy.
