Here’s another bug/undesirable behavior introduced in 1.7… Any single files I have are being auto categorized into an album for the artist called “Audio”. I may not be describing this correctly so I’ll illustrate here.
I have three Amon Tobin flac files all released as singles (without a parent album). Here’s how they appear in Roon:
This issue is due to Roon not having enough information to go on. You can organize your media into folders (so that instead of pulling from Audio folder it will pull from the correctly named folder) or you can add file tags to your media.
But this is a change in behavior and an undesirable one at that. What is the thinking behind changing this behavior versus the way it behaved previously? I am now forced to find all of the single audio files in my master audio folder and add them to folders using the “album“ name Or automatically retag them. A daunting task when considering I have roughly 6 TB of audio data managed by rune. Why not just change the code to automatically make the album name equal the track name when the track has no album name… As it did prior to the 1.7 update?
If I make it up on my soapbox for a moment… I am in the software business specifically custom software development. I know all too well that pain that users feel when a behavior is changed for a (at best) unknown purpose. Can you please explain why this was changed?
