Support the new Metadata tags!
There are a few tags that I really really miss from Traktor.
There are 76 different types of tags between Traktor, Rekordbox, iTunes (Apple Music.app to weirdos) and Lexicon. So we don't need all of them.
But here are some I especially miss:
Energy, Danceability , Popularity, Happiness.
Energy is a tag that Mixed In Key started with, the other 3 are ones Lexicon generates.
It's nice if it's visually presented, as in the example above, from Lexicon.
To use for whatever metadata Traktor isn't supporting yet.
Is it mp3 or lossless?
A lot of us used this tag from iTunes to set multiple tags per track.
Multi-tag ("Tags" or "User Tags")
This is a whole other request. But a good song is never too often sung, as they say in my language. This is what it looks like in practice (from Lexicon):
skip a feature like this, and you cede a part of Traktor to 3rd party apps.
It shouldn't be to hard to do in terms of data, but it does pose design problems. But it's the future. anyway.
Not essential, but it'd be a fascinating metric, especially in a DJ app. Tracks you audition but don't mix in.
You rarely have the release date, but lots of apps can scrape original year of release, and it helps if you play any type of non-current music.
Not asking for garbage tags that DJs don't use....
Movements, lyricist names, all that. Keeping the list fairly tidy is good design, although I'm not gonna protest hard against whatever tags others want and I don't.
I'm just specifying that this isn't a request for all tags in the larger id4 spec (or spec drafts or whatever), as such. I wouldn't mind it, but I'm not asking for it.
... but not objecting to other tags either....
I might add to this, if interesting things pop into the comments. And as above, an omission is not an objection.
... Except Album Rating.
iTunes users know what I'm talking about. I will picket the NI building in Berlin.
Thats it. Thanks!
PS: Here's the comparison chart of tags that these four programs offer. It was hastily done, so it's not science. And it does not make for a great meme. I know there are duplicates. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
