I know it may seem a bit “Rain man” to many of you, but the best way for me to catalogue all my early 90’s techno/hardcore/jungle is by catalogue number (which you used to get on the records).
without a record box and sleeve to look at I find it the easiest way (after 1999 forget it) but there is no catalogue number for obvious reasons in Metadata. I tried experimenting a bit with where I could put it that would list clearly on Engine Prime and I could sort by Cat # order. Haven’t found a field that would always be free…
Most of my stuff is Beatport or track and artist in the filename. I don’t want to go and add to each filename it will takes years… any shortcuts anyone can think of? No biggy I will keep on trucking!!
Suggestions off the cuff would be greatly appriciated x
