Copying Custom Credits from one album to another?

The addition of custom credits is fantastic, but it requires a lot of work, that I am happy to do…once. The problem is I have many albums in multiple versions, ie: Original Release, Digital Remaster, DSD etc etc…

So is there any way to copy ALL of the custom credits I have added form one album to another instead of having to re-enter them all for each copy of the album?

I don’t think there is at the moment. Want me to move this to Feature Requests?

Yes that would be great thank you.

Perhaps a MERGE Custom Credits too could work…

Tracks within albums as well please. I’ve just finished editing a compilation album and kept discovering, too late, that some tracks had credits in common. A copy and paste function?

I will not re-enter, would be great to have this functionality.

Would it not be easier to capture the metadata in a text file and then use metaflac to embed the tags into the underlying files independent of Roon?

I did this for an album I recently purchased which had little in the way of metadata and saved it to a text file. Importing it into the underlying files was as simple as issuing:

metaflac --preserve-modtime --import-tags-from=personnel.txt *.flac

In any event, it’s a simple workaround whilst such functionality doesn’t exist in Roon.
