Albums all doubled in the UI

Every album shows up twice.

I’ve tried everything. Rebuilding database. Adding/removing path. etc.

Any ideas?

Hello @cameron,

Can you send me a copy of the “Debug Info”? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>General>Debug Info

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message

Can you take a look at the metadata of the tracks in the duplicates albums? Do you see a difference between the file paths?

Where would it show the file paths? It does not show them in the metadata panel.

The paths are different. One of the two has a location (Music/flac) that I removed a long time ago from Audirvana.

You can try what i wrote here:

I was able to find a solution:

  1. After trying to follow the above advice (and realizing that it wasn’t getting the results that I wanted, because I had heavily customized meta-data), I realized that the “stuck” info was coming from an older version of Audirvana, called Audirvana Plus.
  2. I opened the older Audirvana Plus, noted that it was indeed the culprit (pointing to the old directory), and so I closed everything, deleted the older app, and emptied the recycle bin. (In some other experiments that I did, Audirvana was still tracking files even if they had been deleted, thus my extra care to purge the bin.)
  3. I re-opened Audirvana (the newer version), and the problem was still there, but now I knew that I had gotten rid of “the sticky bit”, so I added the wrong path to the configuration, then I removed that wrong path from the configuration, and – voila! – everything was fixed for the first time in six months!

My experience is that this happens if you move one album from a path to another one with Audirvana closed. The solution is to delete the Audirvana database (I use a Mac and it is in the hidden Library, no idea where it is in Windows) and to rebuild the database. If the database is only removed from Audirvana settings, the problem however remains, the database file hascto be found and removed
