Have had tested firstly the function to import MP3 Folder from USB Stick without using Engine Prime Software. At first:
Yes it works.
Is it good on how it works or how it is implemented ?
When you stick your unanalyzed MP3 Stick … you get message, that there is no Database. So far so good. Ok. Prime4 create a new database … works.
Than, you get navigated to normal Folder view … OK with that. Now you have to load every track 1 time to get analyzed … Also okay.
But you have than to go to create crate … Create and Name a crate. When created, you have to go to search icon
There you will find all your analyzed mp3´s …
Klick all MP3´s you want to insert in that Crate … Hold your selected MP3´s and push them into your crate.
I think we have to improve that a bit.
Why we cant have the EDIT Crate in Folder view, where it makes much more sence. Also a function to convert that folder directly to a Crate or Playlist by holding the folder ?
It works - but it is not nice, how it is implemented at the moment.
Yes - I can use Engine Prime for that. But as a standalone device, we should also note, how we can use it in standalone without a PC or Notebook.
Also nice would be a Delete / Rename / Cut&Paste and such OS related things. It´s no critic. It´s only in a users view … how it could be done easier …
Love my Prime4
