I limit my genres by:
- Turning off “Use genres from Roon’s metadata database”
- Turning on “Use genres extracted from file tags”
- Removing Style tags from all files
- Ensuring only my limited set of genres are used in files
This generally works very well, but for a very small number of albums (<5%?), additional genres still appear.
Does anyone have any idea where in the metadata these might be hiding?
Thanks in advance for any guidance
The answer turned out to be embarrassing. I usually only do genres via file metadata, but in the case of a small number of albums, I must have set genres within roon without remembering.
The depths of my dumb!
Oh, I didn’t even think about that. I also change metadata externally and would not remember which specific albums I changed in Roon either. Glad you figured it out!
Now if I can just remember to not accidentally delete “.” my music collection
Post edit note: it wouldn’t allow me to use the star symbol. I was trying to say delete star.star
