Metadata recovery - Analyzing audio files


I have an issue: analyzing audio files % keeps resetting, or I don’t know exactly the behavior: whenever it gets to 100%, I get the message: Resume analysis (X tracks with no MusicBrainz ID (like below)

Is this a bug?

Edit: I did several restarts, and the picture above shows 200 tracks now, and keeps rising.

So, nobody?

Also, what is the exact meaning of those 2 toggle options? I kind of understand, but I’m not 100% sure.

Have you read the description found in the Metadata Recovery information window?

Yep, did you read my first post?


This is clear, is the 2nd option with the recovered track ID. The first option is not 100% clear: does it refer to that recovered track ID from the 2nd option? What I mean is: Retrieve metadata missing… does gather that track ID from MusicBrainz (+ other metadata), and Save recovered track ID… saves that track ID from before? If so, how Audirvana behaves if I toggle only the 2nd option without the first one?

Also, my initial problem was that I tried every combination of those 2 toggles, but the result is the same: whenever that % finishes, the number of tracks with missing data are exactly the same, which is close to my total number of tracks.

I assume that’s because there is no MusicBrainzID for that track or maybe there is something else wrong with those (even though I manually edited my files with MusicBrainz Picard, but there are a few which doesn’t exist there at all).

Hi @TheSpidyFlash,

If you only have the second option enabled, only the ID is saved but nothing missing metadata gathered from Musicbrainz will be displayed in Audirvāna Studio.
