Hi Peke, as far as I know the tags ARTISTSORT, ALBUMARTISTSORT, COMPOSERSORT, ... are common tag fields and very useful in maintaining big libraries. To fill them in I have to use 'mp3tag'. I moved my library to a Synology-NAS where 'minim server' is running for UPnP/DLNA connectivity, also supporting these tags.
Checking the forum for ARTISTSORT showed some thausend entries from 2010 to now, most of them putting it on the wishlist.
Could it be so difficult integrating these tags into MM and treating them the same way as the original tags ARTIST and so on?
For years I'm still a fan of MM which I still use to maintain my music, but would rather like to find John McLauglin under McLauglin, John and J.S. Bach under Bach, J.S.
Also the problems with multiple values in ARTIST or ALBUMARTIST are already solved.
Kind regards, Peter
