@extracampine : So as you see this is a really subjective thing, also from the metadata providers view, I talked about that here already
and also asked @mike about how they will handle that but had no answer until now. As he answered several other questions he might just have overread it, there’s a lot going on in the forum the last days…
It’s just the question how one wants to handle that from his own preference I think, while there is a good argument for having it under the DJs catalogue then many mix CDs are left where the mixing DJ is not known that then have to have Album Artist ‘Various Artists’. I prefer to have this consistent acrross the board. Hopefully we can have a solution for both ‘versions’. A toggle switch would be great.
But here again, for now it seems Roon just take what they get from the metadata provider… Which is at least correct at first sight
Another problem with this is that there is inconsistency in Roon’s tagging of this. Some DJ compilations are listed under the DJ name on Roon’s database, and others are listed under Various Artists. What can we do about that?
