Something odd about track count

Postby jazzfan » Tue Feb 06, 2018 10:05 pm

I just recently noticed something odd about how Muso displays the track count for an album. Let me try to explain.

When Muso is in album browser as well as on an album page there is a track count for the each album given which will either give the total track count, as in "17 tracks", or it will say "14 tracks (out of 207)". Since I was curious as to why this was happening I did a little research and noticed that it the case of the later the track count display is working as follows:

using the example of "14 tracks (out of 207)"

the first number, 14, is the total number of tracks in the album folder

the second number, 207, is the actual track number of the last track in the album folder.

Since I like to put all the tracks from multi-disc albums into the same folder I number the tracks as follows - all tracks from the first disc are 101, 102, 103, etc and the tracks from the second disc are 201, 202, etc. and so forth for each disc.

Please note that this behavior does not have any adverse effects but can be just a little confusing unless one understands what is going on. Just saying.

Yes it takes the track numbers exactly as input. Why don't you use the disk number field rather than including the disk number in the track number?

If LMS treats multi-disc sets numbered using the disc number field the same as it does when including the disc number in the track then that would be a good idea. However in my case the horses have already left the barn and everything works fine so no to change at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestion. I may give that numbering method a test.
