I'll use the other app that I mentioned (iD3 Editor) to combine the track numbers of a multi disc album.

Instead of two sets of tracks, 1-whatever for disc 1, and 1-whatever for disc 2 etc. It will be one group of 1-whatever the combined number of tracks for ALL discs

Was hoping to automate this process, but oh well, you can't have everything.
Thanks or the speedy reply. I'll give it a try, but unfortunately, I'll have to use a separate tool to combine the tracks for multi disc albums.

Hi Paul,

No. What I mean is that when including a multi disc album in iTunes, it is shown once for each disc (complete with album art).

I would like to change that if at all possible with SongKong.

For example, when I use the Mac app iD3 Editor to edit a multi disc album it does as I suggested for SongKong, it will take the 10 songs from disc one of the 2 disc album and number them 1-10 THEN number songs 1-10 on disc 2 as 11-20. Then when I add all 20 songs to iTunes, only one album art picture is displayed with all 20 songs within.

Personally, when listening to my music collection (say for example Pink Floyd - The Wall) I don't see the value of having to listen to one disc, then select (or add the second to a playlist) then select and play disc 2.

I think that it's fine that the metadata shows that it's part of a multi disc album, but I don't need to see duplicate cover art for the same album within iTunes.

I hope that I'm explaining this well.

BTW, since you're involved with MusicBrainz, how should I handle albums that I know the metadata is correct but MusicBrainz cannot find a match?


I've ripped many albums that had multiple CDs. I however, would prefer to combine them as one album. Not as Album CD 1, Album CD 2.

For example, if there are 10 songs on the first disc, they are labeled 1-10, and then on the next disc, if there are 10 songs they are labeled 1-10 also, and so on.

What I do, is manually change the track number of the songs on the second disc (to 11-20 in this example), and combine them into a single album.

Is there for SongKong to do this automagically?

Thank you
