Additional fields for classical music collection

The pre-defined music collection type does not have all the fields needed for classical music. Classic CDs often have music pieces from different composers. This is represented on musicbrainz with a composer field per track.

e.g. https://musicbrainz.org/release/8cb88f0 … daa7950081

Is it possible to have a composer field per track within gcstar and automatically fill it from musicbrainz?

PS: love gcstar - it's great smile

Re: Additional fields for classical music collection

An "artists" field was added for each track (on the Test and Gtk3 branches of the Gitlab repo.

Downloading such information is possible from Discogs. Unfortunately the API used for MusicBrainz doesn't currently provide this information.



Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
