'OR'ing filters on a Smart List
« on: May 07, 2022, 05:48:54 PM »
I find myself wanting to extract all the songs in a pair of relative major/minor keys (G and Em, in this case) so I can contemplate mashup opportunities from my existing songs.

There may be a better way to do this than Smart List, but I don't see an ability to search by key on the Songs interface, so this is where I landed.

If I make a Smart List with two filters (key eq 'G', key eq 'Em'), the two parameters appear to be AND'ed together. Since no song has both, I get no results.

I can make two smart lists, one for G and one for Em, but that's not great. I'd prefer a switch on the filters of a Smart List that specifies the logical operator to apply on them (OR or AND).

Is there an easier way to do this that I'm missing?

There is an AND/OR switch on the smart list edit page. This is shown in the fifth screen shot in this tutorial:
