    If you search the artist or album name, UPC etc and tick "Search this thread only" you will find the exact post.

    See my example in this post......

    Making this a thread with thousands of comments is an exceedingly poor substitute for a database. Why not create an actual database? Anyone here experienced with database management? Let's do this right.

    Hopefully someone here with the skills and time can reach out to the owner of the dr.loudness site and help out with the running. It really is such a valuable resource for checking different pressings/releases.

    If someone is prepared to do that it would be great, in the meantime however, this is all we've got so it seems a shame not to continue, providing members input the information correctly as set out above there is no reason why it shouldn't work.

    I actually bought the DR plugin thing for Mac, and of course it doesn't run on my computer (maybe it's been updated too much to run on my aging Mac Mini that I use as a media player/server). Are there any other Mac alternatives here, in case the DR database ever opens back up for submissions?

    I had just suggested the other day (not having been aware of this thread at the time) over in the thread discussing the DR Loudness database's recent lockdown, that entries here on the Music Corner could be more accurately searchable if a standard keyword (perhaps chosen by poll consensus, or by the Gorts ) accompanied any artist /title entry. That way anyone searching specifically for a DR analysis of a particular album could locate the relevant posts without having to sift through hundreds of non-relevant posts containing the artist and/or album title.

    I agree an actual database would be safer here on SHF where only members can edit. But in the meantine, we can also make a thread-based option nearly as easy to search

    I think it's critical that song titles are included in anything uploaded. That way if, for example, I was looking for the best source for the Everly's recording of On The Wings of a Nightingale, I would merely have to search for that song rather than wade through every Everly reference and cross reference it with discographical sources to find it.

    To be truly and easily searchable it sure would help if something like "DR Value" was added to each and every entry by those posting. I struggle enough when it comes to getting the search results to do what I want, I'd likely miss anything here unless I can get very specific in search terms.

    The search function on this website is a bit difficult, but if this thread takes off, you can copy/paste this into Google, then type what you're looking for, and it will pull up results in this specific thread if there are any.
    Code:
    site:forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/dynamic-range-lets-create-our-own-reference-library.748772 
    So if I wanted to find @c-eling's Propaganda upload, I'd paste that above code into Google and then type "Propaganda" after it, and it would come right up. Unfortunately, you'd basically need to know that it was posted in the thread, or else 99% of what you look for will get no results. But this should make it easier to search, just to find out if a certain artist has been uploaded or not.

    I think most are usually posted in threads of the album in question, when mastering's are discussed. Pretty much how I look for them.
    The Database is just way easier :laugh:

    These are DR logs for a bunch of pre-1990 Elvis Costello CDs. I'm copying this from another thread (click this link for the thread, Discogs links, and comparisons in a later post). All necessary information is included in the header of each entry – catalog number, matrix numbers, etc. My Discogs liniks didn't copy over, but they are in the linked post.

    I have edited my opening post to include the following information that shows how easy it is to find the information you are looking for, providing that is, you use the search funtion the correct way!

    In order to make things easier for everyone, here are some important instructions on how best to use the search funtion......

    1. Click on the search box within this thread.
    2. I entered the UPC code 090204990559 for the album "Albert King - Live Wire Blues Power" into the search box, alternatively you could also just as easily enter the Artist Name or Album Title, either way the search result would be the same......
    3. I ticked the box to "Search This Thread Only"
    4. Click "Search"

    Here is a screen shot of the result that came up, if you then click on the link it takes you directly to the post for that album.......

    Now lets search for an Elvis Costello album as set out in this post from this very page.......

    1. Click on the search box within this thread.
    2. I entered the words "Elvis Costello Girls Girls Girls" into the search box
    3. I ticked the box to "Search This Thread Only"
    4. Click "Search"

    Here is an image of the result the search feature came up with.....

    SH Image.jpg

    The reason for the two different results is due to me having previously quoted the post I was searching for.

    The trouble is that this forum's search requires the exact keywords, while the Google search is looser. For instance, if I wanted to find the version of My Aim Is True that I posted via the UPC, I'd have a bad time, because the printed one omits the first and last number – it's just 11 characters, 07464350372. Searching this thread for that will yield no results (er, well, now it will, but not the original post). But doing this via Google using the template I posted earlier will bring it up.

    Then again, I'm probably the only person that cares enough about EAN versus UPC, and check digits and all that, to actually type more than what's printed on the artwork, so I doubt this will affect anything besides my Elvis post. :laugh: I also failed to copy the template in the first post, which I should have done, but I figured all the info was already there – no, the template exists for a reason, as it's easier to read and search for. I'll be using it in the future.
