Combine mix of FLAC and MP3 tracks into single album [low priority]

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

ROCK as VM on Synology NAS, Roon Version 1.8 (build 753)

Description Of Issue

I have an album where I was unable to re-rip the final track to FLAC. I have kept my original MP3 version of that track.


The tags on the FLAC and MP3 files are the same structure and convention, as well as the file naming convention.

However Roon recognises the MP3 as belonging to a separate copy of the Album, with just that track.
Re-identifying the original album does not list the MP3 file when matching the tracks. Fixing track grouping for the original album does not list the MP3, and fixing the track listing for the separate copy does not list the FLAC files.

Searching for the album name only returns the original album (missing the final track), but searching for the MP3 track and selecting the album takes you to the duplicate album with only that track.

How can I merge the MP3 track into the original album?

Hi Josh,

Check out this Merge Albums kb article.

Let me know if it helps.

Cheers, Greg
