How to choose which version of an album is hidden in manageable bites

I’m ignoring all the “what is your setup stuff” as I’m asking for help in using the software, not bug-fixing or new functions. I use both a PC and an iPhone / iPad as controller.

So I’m discovering that the version of an album that Roon picks to display is not necessarily the one I prefer. For example, it picked the 2009 Mono version of Rubber Soul rather than the more recent stereo re-release. So this leads me to ask:

  1. Can i pick a single album and then show the duplicates of just that album or alternatively

  2. show only all hidden albums?

I have a lot of duplicate mp3 versions of a lot of albums [old iTunes stuff] so in general this feature is very helpful and works well. I’m just wondering if I can tune my library without dealing with all 1000+ simultaneously.

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


Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)


Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

Hello @William_Coney, yes you can! To set a preferred version of an album, find the album in Roon and go to the “Versions” tab as shown below.

Clicking on the vertical ellipses to the right of your preferred version should give you the option to make that album version the primary version.
