Adding Title, Artis, Album, Etc. With Online Database

Question

How do I do this? I am ripping my vinyl collection to my hard drive. I have recorded the audio, and marked the tracks. I click on "edit audio tags". I would rather not enter all the information for each of the tracks manually. But when I click the MusicID button all I get is "No Match". This is for a Rolling Stones album so I find it hard to believe it is not in the online data base. How can I get the information for the album (song title, artist, album, etc) to fill in automatically???

 

thanks in advance

So you do see the application go out to the database; right?

 

The data base works better if you can give it a hint. In your case, you can add the artist as Rolling stones and the name of the album since you know that. If you select all the music files, then you only have to enter that once for each of those. The rest should fill in from the database.

 

Remember that some one has to upload that information to the data base in order for it to work; perhaps everyone else was lazy?

thank you for the replies. cdanteek, i am ripping vinyl not discs. maybe i shouldn't use use the word ripping. i do not see that option in the "digitize lps and tapes" feature.

 

sknis, yes, i see it checking for unidentified tracks. it comes back with nothing even after album, and artist are filled in. if the data base does not have a rolling stones album, i'm sure it will be useless for the rest of the vinyl i am recording. oh well.

 

thanks again

Then you aren't running a bought retail version of Roxio Creator 2010!

 

Where did your Roxio software come from, what version, and name is it called?

i have a bought version of 2009. nothing illegal going on. does 2009 have the feature you're speaking of? seems like i updated to 2010. that doesn't cost anything, correct? maybe somewhere along the way i downloaded a demo version of 2010. however, it doesn't say demo or anything like that upon starting. shrug. also, do you recommend checking the "maximize" box when exporting the wav files? is that the same as normalize?

1. 2009 should have the feature.

 

2. Wrong upgrading from C2009 to C2010 costs $.

 

3. No legal demo version of C2010 available.

 

Post a screen shot from the application your using.

Wasn't there a problem with 2009 not being able to access Gracenotes?

 

My memory is failing me on that one? ;)

 

Does the CDDB database aplly to LPs?

 

Remember they keeping selling us all the old music and movies on new media! :)

Mine too!:P I'll search around and get back to you on it.

 

If I remember correctly, the issue was with "autofill from disc". The work around was to use a different application to do the label.

 

The OP is reaching the data base but not finding matches. If the OP is reaching the database but not finding the information, then that is a different matter. In Creator 2011 there is an option to do an extended search; I don't know if that was in earlier version.

 

In looking at the Gracenotes site, it seems to indicate that it works with CD music. If that Stones album has not been put into the database for any reason or not been released onto a CD, then I don't think it will work.

 

MusicID-featured Identification Technologies:

CD Identification: Using the CDs unique Table of Content (TOC), MusicID can identify CDs released around the world. Even with multiple pressings and release dates, patented fuzzy matching enables accurate recognition.

 

Stream Identification:

Using an audio waveform fingerprint technology, MusicID can identify music with short audio samples anywhere in the song.

 

Digital File Identification:

MusicID can identify individual songs or albums in a user's collection regardless of source, format, or tag information. Utilizing a multi-step process which combines stream identification with textual information analysis from the file's embedded tags, file name, directory path, and other related files in the user's collection, individual or groups of songs can be matched to albums.

 

All of the Lps I captured have been very old (60's and earlier) so Inever did try to use it for those.

to clarify, i am ripping them right now, and will be for the next 100 records. i dont understand how this applies to what i'm asking.

 

Ripping is copying the music from a CD or DVD. The database works with that because the CD information is in the data base.

 

Capturing is when you get the music from a turntable (analog signal) and converting it for use on a computer (digital signal). The data base does not have the information from the LP manufacturer.

 

Did you read the indented text in my earlier post?

 

That is just to make sure we are clear on what you are trying to do.

 

What I have done with LP is to Google for them on-line and copy and paste the names of the cuts in the proper place. It works surprisingly well. You would have already put in the artist and the name of the album as shown above.

 

This is not a Roxio issue, it is a function of the database.

With the Stones, maximize ! :lol: Seriously if you recorded the LP at the same level there is no need for this. If you are later going to create a CD mix with Stones and other, you can chose to do it or not.

 

Some music needs to be played softer than others without having to readjust your player.
