Thread: Manual metadata pull from Discogs does not take artist names on compilations

    Manual metadata pull from Discogs does not take artist names on compilations

    Hi,

    I'm using R17. When I do a manual metadata lookup by Discogs URL for a CD that has artist names by track, those artists are not pulled in. Rather the album artist (e.g. "Various") gets applied to every track instead. Basically ripping any compilation or soundtrack where I want to load the Discogs data requires me to type them all in by hand.

    Example: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Reel...elease/6105871

    When loading in CD Ripper, every track has the artist name "Various" rather than the actual artists as shown for each track in Discogs.

    Is there an option I need to change, or is it something that may be updated in a future release?

    Thanks!

    I noticed this recently. I wanted to use the Manual Metadata Search, but it keeps filling in the Discogs version, which as you said has Various for all of the Artists.

    I want to use a link for the specific CD, but as it auto-fills on the Manual search, I can't get the version I want in.

    This has been fixed (Various) for R17.1, I update the beta soon.

    I just tested it and it works great now. Thank you for the quick fix!

    I have unticked all data providers. I copied this link from Discogs https://www.discogs.com/Various-Top-...elease/2587734

    but it still has Various as the Artist, not the Artists it does on the release page.

    Any ideas please anyone?

    It works for me, all tracks have their own artist, this was fixed in R17.1

    You need the full release of R17, not the beta version, it was released.
