How to update album art for songs in VOX Cloud


#1

The artwork for several albums did not come across while moving my music collection to VOX Cloud. Is there a way to update the artwork (or tags) for songs already uploaded to VOX Cloud - without needing to repeat the upload?

Thanks

Hi there - cover art is hit and miss in Vox. Generally it depends on what file types you are importing.

To make sure the correct artwork displays I put a jpeg into each album folder and it uploads with the album, displaying directly.

There is no other way to change artwork within VOX currently - you have to add the artwork and re-upload.

Thanks for your posts!

Unfortunately, that is true…we are working hard to finish and release a beta version cross-platform app that should cover our users` demands for VOX Cloud management tools.

P.S.
Almost all members of the VOX Team are waiting for those tools to become available too! Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Waiting in high anticipation too! :smile:

Personally, I enjoy the process of tagging my flac files with metadata using an editor like Picard for macOS. Just a suggestion… but if VOX is having trouble developing a method that allows users to edit their meta + artwork for tracks already uploaded to VOX Cloud, would it not be easier to setup a feature that can auto-fetch basic meta (title - album - year - artwork)?

You could have an option to turn metadata fetching On/Off so a user can choose. Perhaps you could even use Last.FM as a source database since you already use their Scrobbler. A lot of amazing iOS media player apps (like Infuse Pro or even Plex) do this. Personally, my favorite database is (the one used for Picard) MusicBrainz because it can even scan a tracks based on their AcousticID, recognizing what a song sounds like.

And of course you could provide users with the required file naming format if they want the database to recognize their music. I think MusicBrainz recommends a minimum of: “Artist - Title”

In the mean time, if anyone is interested in a quick tagging method for all of their music (Flac/mp3/etc). Picard for Mac is a great FREE tool. I’ve been using it all week, and have already tagged over 100 albums in my free time.

My only note: if you are into a lot of underground artists or have music that is not commonly available on places like iTunes or Spotify… I would recommend creating a free account for MusicBrainz database. This will allow you to quickly create or edit releases, so you can add a track list, art and basic info. Alternately you can also just add this custom meta directly to your tracks if you think you won’t need to access it again.
