How to import soundtracks?

I use “Max” on my Mac to import flacs to to Roon. However when I import soundtracks to roon they get all split into different artists. Any hints?

Good question.

The first thing to check is that all files are in a folder together. Then, you’ll want to check the file tags to make sure all the files have:

  • Consistent sensible track and media numbers, meaning tracks 1-17, and disc 1 of 2 (or 1 of 4, or whatever)
  • The same Album tag
  • The same Album Artist tag (if it’s a compilation with more than one artist, this should be Various Artists)

If you find a compilation that’s not grouping properly, make the needed changes in your tags, and then rescan the files if the changes don’t get picked up automatically.
