Include Performers in the list of Artists


I would like to see Performers in the list of Artists.

Definition: A Performer is an Artist on a track (appears as a Primary artist on the list of Credits for the track). A performer is distinct from the album’s Primary Artist.

I can see two ways of achieving this:

  1. Modifying the Focus >> Inspector >> Album count and allowing the minimum field to be zero (right now 1 is the minimum value)

  2. Adding a Focus >> Inspector >> Include performers option

The second option is more straightforward, but it would need localisation, so it may be more complex to go live.
The first option is more (kind of) hidden, but it offers a quick and easy solution.

Including Performers is useful for tag junkies (like me :slightly_smiling_face:) and also allows me to export them and easily control missing MB/ROVI keys // duplicates // mistyping and -ultimately- MusicBrainz bio updates to make.

Thank you. Fell free to ask if you have any questions.

And I think having some kind of access to all artists known to the library would be quite useful.

Yes, indeed, it’s the same feature.
