Many thanks, Social Dancer,

Easy when you know how. I was fixated with trying to change the titles in File Explorer, didn't think of Studio.-

Edited in-situ, refreshed and all is fine.

Many many thanks again, sorry about ghastly tunes but people want to sing this stuff!

Kindest regards
Martin

Here's a bit of Aussie nostalgia.

Way back on Xmas Eve 1974, the "top end" of Australia was hit by a cyclone, the force of which had never before been experienced. Here's the Wiki link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Tracy.

Fifteen years later, I was the engineer at an FM radio station, PBA-FM in South Australia. Enid Wylie, whose son had piloted one of the rescue aircraft, wrote a script about the whole experience, and I decided to produce a radio play from the script. None of the actors are professionals, but all were, in some way, touched by the cyclone, including Enid's daughter.

Peter Goers, theatre critic, wrote at the time, "Tracy Was No Lady is superbly produced by James Roberts and Steve Napier and the sound effects convey the full horror of the big blow. The play makes you feel as if you were there and then makes you glad that you weren't."

From the production point of view, it was before digital editing, so everything was mixed through three Otari open reel tape decks into an RME desk, and editing was by cutting and splicing the "son" version of the master tapes. There was no library of sound effects, so all effects you hear were recorded "live" on a Tascam portable tape recorder, using actual sounds, such as car doors opening, closing, windows smashing etc, just like the Foley sound deck in movies.

The station moved studios several times and I believe that the original master tapes have been lost. However, I stumbled across a cassette copy of the play in my mother's belongings. It was recorded by my mother on her "three-in-one" stereo at the time in 1989. This is "off-air" from the original FM broadcast, so some of the studio quality would have been lost in the broadcast chain, and no doubt by the conversion to cassette. All I have done is convert the cassette to an m4a format file (thus introducing another lossy iteration of the original).

If you have a spare 35 minutes, have a listen to this story, produced in a different era, with, by today's standards, primitive equipment. I might be biased, because I was there, but I don't think it turned out too shabby for the time.

Oh yeah. I voiced the "narrator".

Ots doesn't use the Windows filename internally, except of course to find the file on the PC.
The album title is a field within the Ots file and may have been wrongly identified during the conversion process.
The title is easily changed with Ots Studio and can be simply done from within Otsav by double clicking the item to open the Item Information window then selecting Edit in Ots Studio.  Save the changes and close Studio then finally select Refresh From File to copy the changes into the oml database.

Within Studio, the album title should be a chunk inside the Global section, top left.

Hi, not sure where to put this query.

Using Ots Studio to convert CDs to .ots files I am getting strange results for the album titles.  For example, I was changing a Karaoke file "Cheesy Party Album" to .ots format and it appears to have converted OK, but when I use the term "Cheesy", for example, to search in OtsAV the title cannot be found.

However, if I search by a single track for example "Hey Baby" I can find the correct file.  If I hover the cursor over the title I see the album is saved as "ZM-VS-CP-020" I have added a screenshot to show the file definitions.

In file explorer I cannot find any way to modify this result.  Very inconvenient to have to search on "ZM-VS-CP-020" to find a particular track.

Although this is a (Cheesy) Karaoke specific case I have found this problem on a number of other albums, any ideas how I can get OtsAV to search on the original .ots file name?

Note, that the correct title can be seen in the screen shot.

Many thanks
Martin
