Regular Expression support in artist filter

Recommended Posts

I would really like to see support for regular expressions in the filter for artists. It would be great to filter out artists according to more exact premises.

The main reason is that I have a lot of loud music with growling and some classical stuff, and sometimes I want to add all my metal to a playlist and exclude the classical ones.

To add the artists manually is just to much work ( ok so I am lazy ) when you have a lot of music.

If implementing a regular expression library is too hard, maybe you can implement a negative filter?

 

Thanks for an otherwise great product.

You dont need regular expressions for that, just name your tags properly. Genre  for exmaple.

There is a lot of work to do that if you have a lot of music.

Implementing regular expressions or a lite version thereof is a one time thing and would save time for people. It's not like it's a hard thing to put in.

 

Why not help people with features instead of telling them how they should do things?

Possibly because getting new features added can be a rather long-term solution, and people are trying to offer you ideas which might work for you right now.

No buddy is telling you what to do? Simple programs out there to batch procces mp3's. I have a rather large collection and can Genre 

thousands at once with a simple click using the likes of Abander TagControl.
