Reduce % of artist songs in Smartlist
« on: May 23, 2015, 09:35:41 am »

Hi,
I am using a lot of smartlists. In my Progressive Rock-smartlist, I have too much of Pink Floyd. How can I reduce this?
I am already using two functions: 1) Last played is not in the last 14 days, and 2) Remove Duplicates of Name. But this of course doesn´t weigh the number of Pink Floyd songs in relation to other artists in my Smartlist.

I would like to add something like "Reduce number of songs of "Pink Floyd" in the Smartlist by 15%.

Any idea someone?
Thx

Using the "mix" modifier might be what you want.  Read some details here:

Scroll down just a bit more to find "mix" with some examples.

Yep. ~mix can do that.  You can limit by percentage on any field.  It is an including limiter though (you include 20% Pink Floyd, of the total), not reduce by some percentage.
