Number of Tracks in Library
1944 of 2061 albums identified
I could not find the # of tracks listed. Assuming 10 tracks/album about 20K tracks.
Description of Issue
Classical albums are not being cataloged correctly. This is my Beethoven albums on the ext SSD
I would like to show you what is in my library and what shows up in ‘Beethoven’ either artist or composer, in Roon but I apparently don’t know how to copy a screen capture and pin it.
Suffice it to say only half of what is on the ssd is being listed in Roon.
This is happening in all my classical composers, not just Beethoven.
Pretty sure this is a new problem. I noticed it when I went to do some listening to music on a new DAC. I use Beethoven’s 9th as a test when evaluating dac’s and ttheir different filters. This time none of his symphonies showed up under either artist or composer.
Roon seems to have changed how it categorizes classical music. And it’s broken. Please fix.
The first screenshot is the albums on the usb attached ssd I have in my Beethoven folder. There are other Beethoven tracks on compilation classical albums. Some of those albums show up on the second screenshot, but most of his symphonies on the ssd do not appear on Beethoven’s artist or composer page. The 12 albums you see are all that show up under overview on both his artist and composer pages.
Mozart, Bach, etc. show the same problem. Many of the symphonies they composed are missing, but albums that may have a piece by the composer do show up. And a few odd things show up. Like in Bach Jethro Tull Aqualung and living in the Past albums are listed.
In the meantime, I would like to try re-scanning my entire library to see if that would fix the problem.
I know how to re-scan an individual album, but I cannot find how to re-scan the entire library and start from scratch. ‘Search’ has no instructions on how to do a total re-scan.
Could you point me to instructions for doing this.
Thanks a whole lot for following up on your initial post — sorry we’ve missed on this thread for so long… we’d love to help out.
For the album you’re referring to in this example (Beethoven Symphony No.9 - Hi-Rez -SACD) that does not show up under Beethoven’s artist or composer page, does it show up in Roon if you use the search function or if you simply find it under My Albums?
I was hoping to hear something from you by now. Am I the only person this is happening to? Is there a fix? Is this a system wide ROON problem that you are working on? Or are you just blowing me off?
Can you please post a screenshot of the album page for one of the Beethoven albums that isn’t showing up on your Beethoven composer page? Then, please tell us if you are preferring your file tags, or Roon’s, for that album. Thanks!
Thank you for the screenshot, those are helpful and much appreciated. Check the metadata for this album to see if Beethoven is incorrectly cited as Primary Artist, in addition to Composer. If so, remove Beethoven as Primary Artist and the album will show up under his Composer view. Thanks!
