    Hello all & happy new year..! :D

    I love iTunes and my iPod, but I have run into a wall. I want to make a smart playlist, that does the following:

    o Artists should be: Roxette and Infernal (two artists)
    o Ratings should be Above 3 stars (4 and 5 stars), but ONLY withing those two artists!

    I can't do that.. I tried:

    Match: all
    Artist -> is -> Roxette
    Artist -> is -> Infernal
    Rating -> is greater than -> (3 stars)

    Not possible, because the two artists are conflicting, because of the Match 'all'. If I then change the Match to 'any', it includes ALL artists that has 4 stars or above..

    :(

    You'd think this could be done, but I can't see how.. Any ideas??

    Some simple AND/OR would be nice indeed.
    Right now you can use 2 playlists to get what you want.

    1. (any)
    where you pick the artists

    2. (all)
    playlist = playlist created above
    rating = 3+

    Could you not first make a playlist that contains everything by the two artists and then make a smart playlist based on the song ratings?

    Oh, damn.. Yes, of course! Works nicely. A little weird you have to have 2 playlists to get it done. But it works, that's the main thing.

    Thanks a lot!

    Why not put those 2 playlists in a folder. Then, if you highlight the folder you'll see all songs contained in either of the two playlists.

    Nice idea, but then it shows all tracks by those two artists.
