Problem with metadata

Content you’re reporting an issue with

This is an LP I inherited from my grandfather. You can find it on DiscoGS at this link: Arcangelo Corelli – Arcangelo Corelli (1967, Vinyl) - Discogs

Have you made any edits to this content in Roon?

No edit, but I edited the file’s metadata using MP3Tag before importing it in Roon.

Is this content from local files, TIDAL, or Qobuz?

It is a local file (ripped LP)

Description of the issue

Problem 1

I added the tag “Composer=Arcangelo Corelli” to all the tracks in the album. The tag is imported, however it creates a new composer instead of linking to the existing “Arcangelo Corelli” in Roon database.

Problem 2

I added performers tags in the form of (for example)

VIOLIN = name1

However, these tags are not credited. If I use “SOLOIST”, they are credited but not associated with the instrument (i.e. name1 and name2 will be both credited as soloist).

This is the “right” Corelli in your database:

I’ve tried to manually edit the metadata in Roon, but there is no way to add Composer, just Artist.

For Problem 1 is your post remove the equals sign and simply use Arcangelo Corelli.
