Can i show only albums that have no local copy


Is it possible to simply display all the albums in my library that do NOT have a local copy. i.e. qobuz only.

I’d like to see this so I can work out if I want to buy some of those albums.

Its an 80000 track library with a lot of manual work gone into the catalogue so I don’t want o do any destructive processes. I feel like Ive just missed a trick, some combo of inspector tags?

a Quick update: I can use focus to select the storage location “qobuz” and then inspector select “duplicates” but I cant then switch the duplicates fl;at to NOT duplicates like you can do with many other flags.

Many thanks

Using focus, select duplicates.

Select all. Add to a new tag, dups for example.

Clear. Now use the tag icon to select the dups tag - this can be inverted. Do so.

Now focus on qobuz.

Does that work?


Doesn’t it just work to select “storage location: local” and invert that? Seems to work for me (except that it includes albums that I have marked in Qobuz and locally on vinyl only, but that may not matter in this case)

Edit: well maybe not really


Thanks Brian, that does work. Its a bit fiddly, have to create the tag first (cant create tags in the context menu) and it took a while to remember you had to select one before being allowed to select all. But yes, fabulous. Have a a virtual pat on the back from me.

that doesnt seem to do it for me, still includes where qobuz is primary but other local copies exist. Brian below go me there though, thanks for your time
