When adding a release or a single recording to MusicBrainz, it is recommended to submit AcousticBrainz analyzes for all of the added material too. This How-To explains this process as part of the (usual) workflow:

  • At first, the release or recording is (manually) added in MusicBrainz.
  • After that, the relevant files (recordings) are tagged with picard.
  • Last but not least, the AcousticBrainz analyzes are submitted.

This step is the last step, because all files need to have a MBIDs to be able to get analyzed for AcousticBrainz. MBIDs are automatically added when the files are tagged with Picard (that's why this has to be done before). In the following there are two ways described, how to analyze and submit those analyzes to AcousticBrainz.

AcousticBrainz Analyze (GUI, only for Windows)

For this, AcousticBrainz-GUI is needed. Open acousticbrainz-gui.exe and select the folder with the files (should be the same folder) and click "Analyze...".

Now wait until the process is finished:

Note Note: This may take a while, so make sure to have a stable internet connection and preferably don't do anything else during this time on your computer.

Other than this, you have to do nothing, because the program automatically submits the analyzes to the AcousticBrainz server when you are connected to the internet.

AcousticBrainz Analyze (Command line, Linux)

For this, an AcousticBrainz Client for Linux is needed.

Download the client according to your OS-Type and extract it. Now open the extracted folder and create a folder named whatever you like, in this example it is "Music". Put all files you want to analyze in this new created folder.

Open the (abzsubmit) folder in the terminal and use the following command to analyze and submit all the files in the "Music" folder: ./abzsubmit Music

Now wait until the process is finished.


After that, you basically completed the whole process of adding a release/recording.
