@Musicophile Audirvana has always written ReplayGain data to files: should still be all it does 😬

Here's what somebody else found (from the Audirvana community forum):

 

"I ran a diff on the backup of my library against the copy Audirvana Studio was running against. This found it had, so far, updated just over 5,000 files (in about 20 hours). And on inspecting and of those changed files directly, and with a non-Audirvana metadata editors, clearly shows the addition of the MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID tag."

This is clever, but sadly it doesn't really work for me on my 15" MacBook as the pop-out window covers other information.

the "Do Not Dare Touching My Files" is among the longest standing, and never listened to, requests for Audirvana 🙄

My files already have that field populated -- nothing to do with Studio.

 

Mine don't.

 

Only the ones that show updated in the last 20 hours or so.  All of those touched have the "MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID" added.

The result of the analysis is to append a MusicBrainz ID to the file so additional metadata MusicBrainz has can be shown when you look at the album - *without* overwriting any of your own metadata or other file information.

 

I can easily understand @Musicophile's reluctance to have additional information cluttering the carefully curated metadata for his 100k+ tracks, a good chunk of them classical.

 

For my own part, I would like to see whether this would be recognized as a difference by my backup program and result in new uploads of those files. I haven't tested yet. (If so, I wonder if there's a way to tell various backup apps to ignore these changes?)

It will.

 

If you're lucky, and your backup solution is smart enough, it may only backup the changed blocks rather than the entire file, but it'll be backing up something for every touched file.  File backup systems generally aren't built to be conditional on what has changed, beyond block-level change-detection and deduplication.

Would you happen to know if there are ways to ignore this particular change in rclone and Chronosync, the two backup apps I use most often? Otherwise I can ask on forums or customer support.

Not "out of the box".

 

It might be possible to use the "External Script" rule-type in Chronosync's inclusion/exclusion rules (Rules | Advanced) to do it, but there would be limitations.  Mostly because your custom script can't see the existing backed-up file to do a comparison against.  Which means all you could do is, for example, say "exclude if this tag is present", rather than "exclude if this tag was newly added", and even then it's fiddly and involved to do.

I'm just running my regular backup with CCC. And every single file that Studio modified is being backed up.

Because I don't have the number of files you do, I'm not concerned about local backup. If a TB of my files are backed up to the cloud, that means an extra charge from my ISP, unless I hold off to the end of a month so about half goes in one month and about half in the next.
