I may be wrong, but at least it’s the case on my side, when you search for a given word, only tracks containing that word in the title are found.
In other words, searching for 'beethoven" will not provide you with all tracks from that composer, but only those that contains “Beethoven” in the title.
This is what you see in your case with “Lane 8”.
It’s the way the search algorithm have been made. When you search an artist, search result could display tracks result that are close to the artist but not the artist itself.
You then need to click on the artist to see all of the tracks you have from him.
However if you search for a specific track name, it will be displayed in the search results.
I have no idea, search is a function I rarely use… But my searches show up all references to the searched name, again though, my filing is very simple, which is why I suggested that if you have a lot of metadata, that maybe some isn’t included…
Do the tracks not shown have Beethoven in the metadata (artist, album artist, performer or composer etc.)? Or not at all?
I am asking because it could be that Audirvana only searches in certain specific metadata fields (artist, title etc.) and not others (ie composer). This is, of course, just a guess but could be a plausible explanation.
Maybe you could compare the metadata from a found track with the metadata of a not found track and see where Beethoven is in both?
Good to know. Maybe it is another field (I was just guessing in my previous post). The only way to find out is comparing metadata fields in found tracks with those in not found tracks. Because there must be a logical explanation for this.
Thank you for your answer, but on my first example with imagine dragons, Audirvana doesn’t even display a single song in the search when I have 31 files of this band… For Lane 8 it displays 4 while I have more than sixty songs. It looks like everything is random. Why some tracks are displayed and others not at all? Why does Audirvana shows remixes and not the sounds closest to the artist as you say?
I mean it’s not even useful to add a “tracks” field for the search, if the software can only shows 4 tracks out of a total of 60
It’s frustrating that you can’t choose how the search works on a software of this price where a free software like musicbee allows it…
Roon has the same problem, it is impossible for me to display all the music I own of an artist when I type his name in the search.
