Hi, I have large flac library (3000+ CD's), folder structure audio/artist- album/single flacs, and I'm using the Music Folder View to choose what to play, because the music isn't tagged correctly now... Is there any way to skip to an letter on controller when choosing music?

The faster you spin the 'wheel' the quicker you move through the alphabet.

This won't help--The OP says he's using Music Folder because the music is not tagged properly.

If the filenames are reasonably consistent, won't SC have tried to 'Guess Tags' and therefore made some available?

You could organize your folders into sub-directories as I do. I have A-Z folders with Artist directories underneath and Albums beneath those containing individual tracks.

Example:

[B] > [Bjork] > [1987 - Homogenic] > [1 - Hunter.flac]

It may take a little work to set up but shouldn't be too hard. I find it's fairly quick to navigate this way on the Controller. In any case, it should hold you over until you can get through the herculean task of tagging all those files :o)
