I have a recording of the Mikado, in which my local files are tagged with good titles for the tracks, but Roon has used its metadata instead – in this case, with terrible results. So all the tracks are labeled, e.g., “Song and Chorus,” instead of the name of the song. I want Roon to show the track titles stored in the file tags.
Here is what I’ve done that does not work:
Display the album
Select all tracks
From the “…” menu at top, "click “Edit” then “Metadata Preference”
For “Title”, click “Prefer File”
I must be missing something, as this has no effect at all. Help, please!
Ordinarily, I find multi-part structure useful. But here, two things combined to make it problematic. (1) Roon simply grouped the entire album under a work, The Mikado, which is already the title of the CD, so multi-part added nothing; and (2) the parts titles were about as uninformative as they can be.
Again, thanks for showing me the way to work around this.
