Default Any software that can create a playlist for every artist in the library?

<hr style="color: rgb(209, 209, 225);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> It just takes too long to do it manually in Media Monkey.

Basically if i have one or more albums by the same artist, i want to make a playlist of all the tracks.

My Zen doesnt seem to be able to play all the albums by one artist, so i am forced to make playlists instead...GRRR

Thanks in advance...

Matt

I've never actually used this feature myself, but WMP11 has the ability to create auto-playlists based on any of a number of criteria, including Artist info. Might be worth a try.

why not just browse by artists and hit play on the artist you want? that seems like a quicker way to get the same effect.

It would play all the artists songs in alphabetical order, not each album in correct track order, but you can easily do that by using the "Add to Selected" option.

Browse by artist and hit "play". While listening, go to Menu -> Play Mode -> Shuffle.

That's how I do it on my Zen Touch anyway.
