Tag Synchronization?

Tag Synchronization?
« on: May 18, 2020, 09:42:49 PM »
Could someone please explain how to use Tag Synchronization?

I have been using MP3Tag to cleanup a lot of tags. Missing tags, "Unknown Artist", wrong fields, etc. Once I corrected all the ones I wanted I did a Tag sync. It counted through all the songs and did not display any errors, however when I went back to RadioDJ the tracks did not have the tags changed. If I edit each track manually I can "read ID3 Tags" and then save them track by track. Is there a step I'm missing?

Are you running Tags to database?

Here's what I have done so far.

Load a subfolder in MP3Tag. Then I correct Artists and Titles tags and save. Then try sync tags with "From TAGS to Database", using settings shown (see screen shot attached). The progress bar goes across and count goes up to the total then stops with no errors. Then I check in Track Manager and tags are not changed. I can go into each file and manually read ID3 and then save, but that would be quite a slow process. As this is on a network, close all copies of RadioDJ, then reload, still no change.

RadioDJ v2.0.0.6

Also slightly off topic, can I use a program such as MP3Gain to normalize the level of all songs without having to re-import?
