Hello Roon fans,
Recently I purchased a NUC and USB drive and installed ROCK. (Previously, my Roon server and library was on my NAS) First I restored my backup to the ROCK/NUC. Then I copied my entire library to the USB drive.
Roon did (like expected) immediately rescan the entire library.
I have many self-compiled compilation albums.
For example, I have all the Top 40 singles per year in a folder For example:
Various Artists\Top 40\1968\CD1
Various Artists\Top 40\1968\CD2
Various Artists\Top 40\1969\CD1
Various Artists\Top 40\1969\CD2
I also have a Dance Classics collection (official editions) that Roon normally recognizes.
I saved it as follows:
Various Artists\Dance Classics\Dance Classics Vol.1\CD1
Various Artists\Dance Classics\Dance Classics Vol.1\CD2
Various Artists\Dance Classics\Dance Classics Vol.2\CD1
And so I have even a lot more compilation collections (official and no official editions)
After scanning it has become a big mess.
Everything is mixed up, but also songs from “normal” albums recognized by Roon are randomly put with compilation albums.
As a result, the official releases / albums are no longer complete.
In my tags, everything is stored as follows:
TRACK NR, ARTIST, TITLE, ALBUM, SORT ALBUM, YEAR, DISC#, ALBUM ARTIST (which is always Various artists in case of the compilations)
I use Tag&Rename as a tag editor which has always worked well.
Does anyone have a solution so that the files are sorted normally again?
Otherwise it will cost me months to sort…
I hope anyone can help…
Thanks in advance!
