Here is another example - Sviatoslav Richter’s Complete DECCA, PHILIPS & DG RECORDINGS (EDIT: this is actually a box set - there is a seperate topic on boxsets) https://www.deccaclassics.com/fr/cat/4786778
Each record has a title, which is lost when I merge them together.
There does not seem to be a way to edit a disc, once it has been merged within a set.
I actually was not aware of the DISCSUBTITLE or SETSUBTITLE tags. It would be great if Roon could just display that tag above the track list. Even better, having the option to display the discs in one screen, grouped by disc title, and not in seperate tabs.
Here is an example of how I have it set up in Tonal. notice the label under the disc number…
I really would like to see this option too.
It would serve different scenario’s, like Box-sets and possibly series.
This way it would be also easier to categorize special, deluxe releases. As an example the new Beatles (White Album) release. You would be able to “name” it as folllow:
disc 1& 2: 2018 MIx
disc 3: Esher demo
disc4 to 6: Demo’s & Outtakes
That way it is easier to select what you want to hear.
I agree with all of the above, have requested this 3 years ago (and have mentioned it a number of times since) and remain very keen on improvements to box set handling and the ability to group albums in similar ways:
I saw some of those and have been surprised this wasn’t addressed over the years.
I am following the advice of having no expectations of Roon improvement and adopting to what is available. Any improvements are then pleasant surprises.
I have been putting pictures of the box backs and pages into rooon and viewing the pictures for info on what is contained in the box.
It would be nice to either edit or add the release review for these new Super Deluxe boxes. White album ultimate has an AMG release review. The same old original album review is not a good use of the text space in Roon.
Another reason I find myself adding pictures of text to Roon
I haven’t seen this posted elsewhere (if so, sorry) but a crappy workaround for Disc titles is to use the Location tag for all tracks in that disc. The title gets a “All tracks performed” prepended to the title but it does work in a pinch.
@Elling_Jacobsen yes, I’ve seen that sentiment expressed numerous times throughout these forums. Many users have been crying out for a few relatively small, simple and essential changes (simple to my mind, but I’m not a programmer!) to the Roon interface and capability for years, with no apparent acknowledgement from the Roon team. This is obviously disappointing to long-term subscribers (myself included). There have of course been some good updates and I understand that the Roon team has to prioritise their developments, though we’re talking years now where these requests have been reiterated repeatedly by a large number of Roon users.
Depends what you mean. It will perhaps not happen automatically via scraping, but it should be possible to have this metadata which the user can populate. The metadata tag for it already exists after all.
Is there any roadmap to introducing this? This is probably my single biggest issue with Roon right now and I used it daily.
For example, the David Bowie CD box sets have 11 discs. I can’t remember off the top of my head each time which disc is which…so I have to go retrieve the box and actually look because all I can see in Roon is ‘disc 1, disc 2’. Ok, first world problems - but it is a usability issue.
Roon - is a feature improvement here really challenging to implement?
