Description of the issue

When I pull up a classical Composer in Roon, many albums in my library associated with that composer are not displayed. These include albums with music solely of that composer. A two part question…

  1. Can this be resolved by using a metadata Tag editor and simply entering the composer’s name in the Composer field? Often, but not always, the Composer field is empty on the affected albums.
  2. Assuming the above is possible, does Roon have a guideline on metadata tagging specifically for classical composers? Is “Bach” sufficient. I’m guessing not. Would “J.S. Bach” work, or should it be his full name, “Johann Sebastian Bach”?

FIXED. I added the composer’s name to the “Composer” field using a metadata tag editor and now I’m seeing all albums associated with that composer.
