It is impossible to find things in my huge collection of classical albums. historically, I started labeling my albums with the composer as artist (since there was no composer tag). And they are labeled LastName, FirstName.
Then, my album titles are not necessarily the same as the actual album title, since I like to list the pieces on the album rather than some meaningless album title. I also put the performers in the Album Title.
- While Roon indexes by LastName, it only displays Artists, Composers as First Last. This makes it really hard to find things since one must ignore the first name and skip to the second field (which is at a variable point depending on the length of the first name).
- Roon ignores what I put in for Artist, and lists all performers rather than my Artists (Composers). And it is listed FirstName LastName. The extra artists make it impossible to find things.
- If instead, I search by Composer, what I want is a list of the albums (with my titles) in alphabetical order. Instead I seem to get a list of pieces, or even movements. I always want whole albums!
The discography shows albums that have little to do with the composer. I get essentially the same display when searching by Artist.
- Why can’t I get a simple non-graphic interface??? It is sooo much easier using BlueOS:
The Roon interface is truly unusable.
