I use discogs styles as my genres and generally this works great but I do end up with inconsistencies such as hip hop, hip-hop, drum n bass, drum & bass etc
As there is no whitelist of genres that I can use I'm trying to set up a word replacer to local correct genres after tagging from Discogs. I have the following set up in Preferences:
Manipulators Tab/Word Replacer Sub-Tab
Custom replacer set up as "Genre Replace" (no quotes) containing...
From To Hip Hop Hip-Hop
Drum n Bass Drum & Bass
and various others...
Local Correct Tab/Automatch Sub-Tab
"Do local correct on songs that already have a musicbrainz id" - Checked
Local Correct Tab/Autoformat Sub-Tab/Genre
"Enable Replacement" - Checked
"Replace words by another word" - Genre Replace
Save and exit preferences.
I then run Actions/Local Correct/Correct Genres and..... nothing changes. I think I'm doing everything correctly but I'm lost as to what I'm missing. Any ideas?
Also not to muddy the waters but I have a second issue. I have my genres set to discogs style and my grouping set to discogs genres which works fine on the automated tasks. However if I select an album and run it through "match to one discogs option" it pulls through one of the discogs genres e.g. rock, electronic as well as the discogs styles as the genres.
As long as it's user configurable I would love a whitelist/greylist for genres.
Edit - Having read your link to the Songkong implementation that looks perfect. Especially if it's essentially a text file or a csv.
On the subject of genres, some version of releases on discogs don't have any genre/style wheres others do. Say LP has it and CD doesn't. Is there any way to get Jaikoz to check other versions of the release if no genre/style is found on the one that it's matched to?
