FollowMe: Difference between (VA)Compilations or plain Album

Unread post by Matt Zornig » 05 May 2018, 17:31


I'm thinking, about the "intelligence" of the FollowMe function in Madsonic?

This is my setting for albums

Now, in Real Life, there are 2 types of albums:

Various Artists or Compilations, which contain many tracks of mostly different artists. (Say

A "plain" Album, containing mostly songs of one artist or band.

So now I'm wondering about my setting for Albumtitle above.

while for (2) the value must be abviously low to not have songs from the same album in the playlist,

the value for (1) must be set to a much higher number, because otherwise FollowMe would skip a VA-compilation-album when a song of it is played once.

So I'm confused.

How does it work technicially?
Does it differentiate between (1) and (2) or will it skip a VA-complation, if a song of it is played once? :?
