I am trying out Jplay with my Melco
System at the suggestion of my supplier - I really like a lot of what it does (it is surprisingly like Roon in many ways)
In most ways it seems to handle Classical music much better than Roon or Linn or Linn Kazoo - that is except in terms of composer!!! It is OK for most composers when there is only one with that surname - say Brahms - but for Bach there is a real problem. There is a limited option as to how it handles metadata - when ‘splitting tags’ using commas - you just get one Bach (under Bach) and that happens to be JS Bach (or is perhaps all??)………. CPE Bach is actually to be found under CPE and not Bach at all etc
If you cancel commas as the splitting tag and use semi colons it at first seems better as there is a composer caller Bach JS, and a composer Bach CPE. ………. But if they both appear on the same Disc then the composer becomes Bach JS, Bach CPE as though that is a different composer than the 2 individually!!
As I like the interface I would like to find a way of sorting this but at the moment I am stuck as to how I might start (and I don’t want to do a lot of work and then find those changes won’t work with Linn or Linn Kazoo if I need to go back to them (or Roon for that matter).
It would be really helpful if you might suggest a way forward especially if it is not too complicated!
