Re: Birth / death dates in BC

Thanks Gordon. The very strange thing about Ovid is that there's reasonable certainty about his birth: 20th March 43BC, but his death in exile is much more obscure. By the time news eventually got back to Rome for anyone to record it, the best guess was that he'd died sometime in AD17, or maybe it w...

Birth / death dates in BC

Is there any way to fool CATraxx in to accepting the birth or death of someone as being in, for example, 43BC? I have a choral recording where a modern composer has set some of Ovid's poems to music. Obviously, I want to register Ovid's significant part in the final work, and I'd also like to record...

Re: Classical CATraxx

I tend to treat each conductor as an Artist in their own right. I don't consider them to be part of the line-up of the Orchestra. So each Track and Album has two Artists: [Orchestra] and [Conductor]. In fact, I've also added a conjunction to the Artist Role table, 'conducted by', to link these two A...

Re: Classical CATraxx

Excellent Azol!

I'd always hoped that this would be a developing 'stone soup' kind of approach to CATraxx for classical works.
Glad to see another item in the pot!

Re: Odd hyperlink behaviour

Oh dear, what have I discovered? Any 'incorrect' (i.e. wrongly titled) Album link in an Artist biography or notes tab takes me to an Album. But it's a different Album for each Artist, and one that has apparently no connection with that Artist. Examples: "Album.xsl?Title=No Name" entered in Claudio A...

Odd hyperlink behaviour

Can anyone shed light on this? I was adding some hyperlinks to the text in the Biography tab of an Artist. I had added several links here to other Artists, to some Albums, and to a Venue and I was in the process of testing each one by clicking on them. Everything worked as I'd hoped apart from one w...

Re: New members - Please make one post to at least say "Hello"

Ah-ha, found you! So this is where you've all been hiding!

Good to see so many of the old community have upped sticks and moved to this new settlement.
Now we can resurrect all the old arguments again, ("No, I forbid you to put a Composer in the Artist field..." etc)

Best wishes to all,

Ken
