    ComposerSort field not cleared between tracks

    The "ComposerSort" field is not cleared between fields. When a track does not have a new ComposerSort value, the value from the previous track (or last track that had a ComposerSort value) carries over.

    dbpoweramp R17.0, PerfectMeta and all metadata providers enabled.

    What do you mean between fields?

    For example, if Track 1 has the fields

    Composer: John Fogerty
    ComposerSort: Fogerty, John

    Track 2 does not have a composer field

    Composer: <not present>
    ComposerSort: Fogerty, John

    Windows or Mac?

    So track 2 did not have a composer, but it looks like it has composer sort from track 1?

    Windows 10 64-bit, dbpoweramp R17.0

    Yes, I noticed it happening because the composer tag was empty, and there was a composersort tag with an value from the previous track in the output file. I'm checking old rips if it happened before, but I don't recall noticing it.

    I'm finding it in compilations, with composers changing or not present in different tracks.

    I've been doing more testing, and the ComposerSort metadata copied to later tracks only happens with GD3 metadata provider.

    I'm don't see the problem of ComposerSort copied to later tracks with metadata from the other metadata providers (GD3 disabled), with or without composer tags.

    I can't tell if its a problem with GD3's original metadata.

    For a disc which does this, can you screenshot the Manual Metadata Review page please? with the checkbox 'View Track-Artists' checked please.
