I can do it but you can still find the album with the artist + album search:
Silence AND artist:silence

or with album + tracks:
"Silence" AND tracks:4


Oh! Strange thing...

I never thought in finding it that way, when using the artist + album search I was looking for "Pete Namlook", or when using the album + tracks search looking for 4 tracks.

Thank you very much for your help!


tracks:1 was a typo, I meant tracks:4

For some reason it needs the artist to be "Silence" when searching.

Even when you use the simple album search, Silence with 4 tracks is the first hit.
Maybe you didn't recognize it because it shows Silence as artist (the actual album artist) in the results.


Yep, I looked into that as soon as I read it and you were right; I was looking at the artist tag for the right one.

Thanks again for clarifying and your help :slight_smile:


error again <_<


You can download the updated standard script from here

or install the latest beta


Hello dano, does that mean your scripts will no longer work? If that's the case it's a shame because I wanted to embed the Musicbrainz ID related tags in my collection.


No, I just needed some free time for the other scripts.
But now I'm done.



Just updated mp3tag to the latest version and noticed the 2009 version I had of this script didn't work 100% anymore.

Just downloaded the latest version of this and it's working perfectly, other than the fact that in the search window where you choose which release you actually have, the artist column is blank showing no data.


Many thanks, love this script :slight_smile:


I've made an update..


It looks like MusicBrainz has changed their website, no longer do double disc compilations show as "Album Name (Disc x)" and all tracks are together under the release.

However, the current script doesn't write tags for the Disc numbers or restart the numbering of the tracks for disc 2. No idea if this is possible with the MusicBrainz API but it would be great if the script could do this in future.


Agreed I'm also getting this issue. Example album is here:

This script now shows that as 1 CD and numbers the tracks 1-26, instead of 1-13 & 1-13.


Yes they had some bigger changes. I'll check what I can do...


Any joy with this?


Bei mir ist beispielsweise
%artist% Vaughan, Stevie Ray
%albumartist% Vaughan, Stevie Ray
%artistsort% Stevie Ray Vaughan
bzw. %artistsortorder% Stevie Ray Vaughan

MUSICBRAINZ findet die "Name, Vorname"-Schreibweise nicht.
Ich müßte das Script so abändern, dass mit artistsort abgefragt wird.
Das Ergebnis darf dann kein artist und kein artistsort mehr enthalten.

Ich wollte das Script &MusicBrainz WS +ID#&4 Search by A&rtist (+ID Tags).src dahingehend abändern, aber meine Kenntnisse reichen dazu nicht aus. Kann mir jemand Hilfestellung geben?

Ich habe mit das mit 'output' und 'input' bisschen zu einfach vorgestellt!


%artistsortorder% ist geändert worden in %artistsort%


Im Skript die Zeile

so ändern:

Damit das Skript die zwei Felder leer läßt folgendes ganz am Ende eintragen:

set "artist"
set "artistsort"


Danke, hat funktioniert. Das hätte ich allein nicht geschafft!


@dano: Seit einiger Zeit erhalte ich bei der Benutzung der MusicBrainz-Scripts keine vollständige Anzeige mehr, beim Publisher steht jeweils und die linke Hälfte der Titelanzeige bleibt leer.

Ist das nur bei mir so?
Wenn nicht, kannst du bitte bei Gelegenheit mal reingucken! :book:
Danke für Deine Unterstützung!


Ich kann kein Problem feststellen.
Lad dir nochmal das Skript von hier und installiere es neu.
