Need help on how to add singles into CATraxx

Post by Dexter » Mon Nov 28, 2016 2:25 pm

Hi!

Very happy that CATraax is still working on Windows 10! (Even though we may be forced to "move on" one day, I'm sticking with CATraxx. Frankly, I'm confused by Collectorz...)

Up until now, I have never bothered cataloging my 45s & other singles - and I think I'm doing something wrong.

Do you catalog your singles in with everything else (Vinyl, CDs, etc.)? I can't see why one wouldn't but thought I would ask.

Here is what I am doing:

Title = A Side of single
Format = 7"
I fill in "Library" information and anything else I want then go to the Tracks tab.
There I click Edit Media, check "2 Sides" and manually enter the titles & times for Side A & Side B
Problem is: I can't enter specific track info this way.

How do you handle 45s? Could you share your steps or any tips?

Thanks!

Hi Dexter,
Welcome to the forum!

I do it pretty much the way you describe. Though I am confused about your comment
Problem is: I can't enter specific track info this way.
Can you elaborate?

I think this screen is where my problem lies. Perhaps I've been adding CDs via the CDDB search function for so long, I've forgotten how to add something manually.

Hi Doug,

Nice to be back! I think that this screen shows the problem. I haven't done manual entry into CATraxx a long time....I'm probably doing it incorrectly.

And you've tried double click on the track title to open the track form?

Right - they wouldn't open. (Sorry for the double-post.)

But - I think I fixed it - now they open up in Track windows! I just need to figure out how & adjust my procedure. I think the different "Add" buttons are what's confusing me. (Like I said, it's been a while....)
There's the red Add at the top (Ctrl+N) ..... the Ctrl+B Add in the Track dropdown menu ..... then Add Media & Add Track at the bottom.
