I found an old post from 2018 stating Roon deliberately remove the stuff in brackets from track titles.
Truncating this information is a really bad solution, as you can no longer search for and identify specific tracks. Can this be looked at?
Hi, yes Tidal is the source. All my settings are default. I tried changing the import settings for track’s title to prefer file but didn’t do anything. Assume these settings are for your local library, not streaming services?
Right now this extra information from TIDAL does not display in Roon. We are investigating how to improve things in the future, but at this time we can’t provide any timeframes for when this might happen.
When you listen a lot to electronic music, like I do, so many tracks are remixed by other artist. It is kind of unbelievable we do not have an option to enable the info in the brackets. Too many times I’m looking at an EP where the track name is displayed 3 times identically, and easily more: without the remix information I can only guess which version is playing???
Just make it an option to enable it and to search on it. Those bracket are very widely used in song titles, especially music made in the last 3 decades. If some people do not like it, all the power to them, and give the option to disable like it currently is.
The logic to not completely display track title name does not make any sense.
