Track titles are sometimes split up. Retagging them, re-identifying, or editing them (within Roon) doesn’t help. For example, from the Complete Columbia Recordings 1955-1961 by Miles Davis & John Coltrane, Straigth, No Chaser becomes:
@Bluebeat Hi Marc, I’m testing a fix at the moment which I hope will be good to go soon. The main problem is that this kind of change can have unintended consequences, so I need to do enough due diligence to make sure that it’s okay; it’s a bit like battling a hydra: solve one problem and another one rears it’s head!
Please note though that this will not fix the “Masada Guitars” track grouping, which is displaying precisely as our metadata provider intended, i.e. as a multi-part work. For this, you can use the new editing functionality that was added in the latest Roon 1.3 release. I’ve added some instructions to Michel Timmerman’s thread here.
This fix is now completed and has been rolled out to the Roon Metadata Service. If your metadata are coming solely from the metadata service (which I think is the case for the Complete Columbia Recordings 1955-1961), then the fixed metadata will make their into your library within a week.
Haven’t been around for a while, but thanks for fixing this.
I don’t agree with the metadata provider, looking at the booklet that comes with cd and the site of Tzadik (record label) Masada Guitars isn’t intended as a multi-part work. It’s an interpretation of the metadata provider as far as I’m concerned.
Thanks for the workaround, though. However I think this should be simpler to fix: if Roon just uses on every level the metadata provided with the files, it should be ok. I guess that’s not how Roon is intended to work, being the intricate metadata machine it is…
Marc, down the line, there may be options (e.g. user voting) to change this kind of thing, but equally, an option to view a particular composition in “flat” form is also a possibility. Please note though that neither of these are “imminent”.
Here’s another one that needs a fix, John Coltrane’s Coltrane Plays The Blues. Three tracktitles are split up, do appear as three separate tracks, but simultaneously as parts (?) of a track… Look at Mr. Day, Mr. Syms and Mr. Knight.
