Sujet How To Force VDJ To Respect BPM & Key Tags ?
I scan my music using Mixed In Key [MIK],
updating the specific ID3 tags (BPM, Key, Energy),
before moving them to a specific folder structure
and only then, I load the songs into VDJ.

I find that VDJ recognises the songs,
and in my browser view, I can see song name, title, BPM, key .. .etc.
but I do NOT see the length of the song.

So, to see the song length, I have to choose "Analyze BPM",
but when I do this, sometimes VDJ will 'over-write' the SearchDB
with VDJ's key interpretation, and I 'lose' the MIK information.

VDJ does not write it into the song ID3 tag, but only the SearchDB.
When I "Reload Tags by Batch", it still does not update the SearchDB
with the MIK information from the ID3 tags.

So, I am looking for a way, to update length of song only,
in SearchDB, but not BPM or Key information.

Is this possible ?

it already was set to "Yes",
but VDJ over-rides the ID3 tag,
if/when it Analyzes the song
and then over-writes the BPM in the SearchDB

A lot of times, the browser view does not show the length of the song,
and I have to 'analyze' the song, but doing this, means over-writing the SearchDB BPM information

Unless you have setTagsAuto set and the key in the tag is actually overwriten, useKeyFromTag will keep using the key from the tag, regardless what the analyzer found.

setTagsAuto = NO
useKeyFromTag = YES

i still have VDJ over-writing key information in the Search DB,
in spite of the song having its Key written to its ID3 tag.

A nasty example just happened now,
ie. song has its keys already written in its ID3 tag.
When moving this song into AutoMix,
VDJ automatically scans the song
and then displayed a different key in the AutoMix column.
