Remix of tracks not indicated in titles

Why is it that when there are remixed versions of a song, Roon just displays the original track name?

If Roon does not “identify” the album, then the remix title is displayed for each track. But for albums which are identified by Roon, it just shows the un-remixed titles.

Here is an example. This is a remix album, but I don’t know who remixed each track.

Simply the AllMusic or MusicBrainz metadata source does not contain that information. Roon simply relay what it finds .

These metadata sources are what we pay for with Roon. They are often not 100% but nothing is !!

If you can find extra data you can edit them

We do have a plan to sort this out, but no timelines I’m afraid.

In this instance, as you have the data prior to Roon identifying the album, you could change the metadata preference for ‘Track’s title’ to ‘Prefer file’.

Yes, this solves the problem!

A very small gripe to otherwise amazing product

Bummer. This really makes me rethink my intention to switch from Squeezebox/Logitech Media Server to Roon. I’m not looking forward to edit all my hundreds of CD singles again in Roon to show my meticulously added tags from my local files/library. :cry:
I was under the impression that Roon should make life easier, not add more tagging problems…

If you’ve already added the data to your files you can probably set Roon to read/use that data as I described above.

I’ve changed the default settings for “track title” import, but that doesn’t help with TIDAL tracks, unfortunately.

No, this sadly only works with local tracks… and I rarely buy music anymore so this is still a big issue, and I’m constantly editing tracks in Roon still. :frowning:
