Disorganized albums

Hello all. For some reason I cannot figure out why my imported music albums are disorganized. I have a number of classical albums in a single folder on my iMac ( Catalina ) desktop. When I import them into Audirvana 3.5.37 they are not organized according to the settings I have put in the Sort Criteria settings. I chose Composer for all settings however the albums are not arranged that way. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Here’s a screenshot and debugging info:

Hello @avta,

Can you check the metadata of those files to see if you have the correct metadata for Composer? Can you also make a screenshot of your sorting criteria in Audirvana settings?

Thanks Damien. How would I check the metadata?

To do this, you can use the track details panel (Icon label :label: after selecting a track).

Seems like that would be a lot of work. I have about 50 albums. I was going to try Piccard if I can figure out how to use it.
Guy

I ran Picard although not sure I got it right. Then changed sorting to Titles from Composer and that seems to have helped. Thanks again Damien.
Guy
