I have loaded in the majority of my music in the last 5 months with only a few issues. The biggest one however is the way Roon has organized my Classical composer selections. It leaves out and or ignores the composer tags for many selections. So if I have 10 recordings of pieces recorded by Bach, I’m only showed 4 or 5 when I search by composer no matter what I do. How can I fix this? Thanks
Which program are you using to tag your files?
and is the composer consistently entered?
Roon will resolve what you typed in best if it is the full name as Roon would have it (eg ‘Johann Sebastian Bach’ rather than ‘Bach’)
Thanks for the suggestions. Here’s some screen shots that might help me explain. The first 3 shots show a recording I have ripped that is clearly a Bach composition. Then there are screen shots of the composer page and those same recordings are not included in his works. Why is that?
Your screenshots are showing that the works are being performed by Bach, which is clearly wrong. Roon is probably picking this up from an Artist ID3 tag in your file metadata. Rather than use Roon’s editor to try and correct this, it would be better to use dBpoweramp to directly edit the file metadata. Roon should then correct itself.
I’ve just looked up the Carlo Curley album on Qobuz - and as you can see, Bach is not listed as a performer…
Again, thank you for all your help. I’m not sure how you are seeing that Bach is the “performer”. The shot I put up looks like the album title is “Bach: Great Organ Works” then underneath, like Qobuz, it says “Carlo Curley” as the performer. Right? Am I missing something or not seeing things correctly?
I think I see what you’re saying. It says “all tracks performed by Bach”. Is this what I need to change in the meta data? But, I still need it to show up under Bach as the composer. How do I do that? Thanks again for everything
Roon is showing that “all tracks performed by Bach” because I suspect that your ripped album has Bach listed as a performer in the files’ metadata. I.e. the track Artist or the Album Artist lists both Carlo Curley and Johan Sebastian Bach.
Here’s an example of the dBpoweramp tag editor looking at a track on one of my albums:
