Setting albums to list by year

Hi, after playing with the sort criteria I have not been able to get my albums to list by year oldest to most recent, instead no matter what I do it always list the albums alphabetically. Mind you I only want the albums to list yearly within the category such as (Fleetwood Mac, Soundtracks, etc…) I still want the global album list to be alphabetical. Does Audirvana for windows have this capability?

Hello @Qi55, you can do this by going in Audirvnaa settings>Sort Criteria, you’ll have the sorting criteria for Album here

I have went to the library settings many times and set it to year ascending and descending and it has done nothing. All albums within each artist are still alphabetical.

When you are trying to sort your column, are you in a playlist or in the library?

In library album view, sorting albums by artist, then Year works… then if i click Pink Floyd, all albums are alphabetical order, we want by year There too :grinning:

Same on the remote for albums of an artist, please :grinning:

I am in the library. Not the main album screen, but for like if I click on Elton John, once in the Elton John only showing his albums they are in alphabetical, but I prefer the albums to display by year. On the main library screen showing all artists that I prefer alphabetical.

I have this problem too. In the library I click into an Artist, then in the Artist view the albums are in alphabetical order, when I’ve (tried) to specify in the settings to have them listed by Year. When I say “tried” I mean that in settings under “Local library Albums” there are three sort criteria:
“Album Artists” (ascending)
“Year” (ascending)
“Album Title” (ascending)
I’m using version 3.5.12, which is the latest at date of writing this.

I have the exact same problem, and same sort criteria as Booker. Would be great to solve this to allow Year sorting in Album view.

I precise, Audirvana version 3.5.35.

[edit] sorry, not Album view, but Artist View!

Still not solved in the last update.

I’m having the same problem. when I go into an artist, all albums are alphabetical. Sort settings don’t work (this aren’t intended for albums inside artists). Please fix this. This is the MAIN reason why I’m considering buying Audirvana to move from Foobar. If this is not solved, I won’t get back to this software as it is useless for me if I can’t see my albums sorted the way I want. Also there has to be an option to see multiple versions of the same album (for remasters, 5.1 mixes, etc)

Hard to believe this is still an issue, I could swear it used to work properly, but now it’s always alphabetical within an Artist.

Shouldn’t you just set Local library Albums to:

  1. Album Artists > Ascending
  2. Year > Ascending

This is how all my vinyl and CDs are sorted, why can’t it be done here?

Looks like it hasn’t changed in the latest version 3.5.39, still sorts albums within an artist alphabetically.

@Damien3 / @AudioHTIT

I confirm, still Alphabetical sorting within Artist view, even with good settings in the pref. pane to sort by Album Artist/Years/Album Title for instance.

Please, that shouldn’t be an issue too complicated to address.

3.5.40, still not solved unfortunately.

Last dev’s reply regarding this issue, end of February 2020 — Should I understand this annoying bug will never get a fix?

An answer would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello @pierrechapuis, you need to understand that some issue need a fix because they concern a lot of people and can be hard to fix. For your case we need to change the order of the album in the artist view and it’s not an urgent task, this is why we will change it but you need to understand that it’s not our priority for the moment.

Hello Damien,

I thank you for your fast reply. Of course I understand that this bug is not the top priority as it affects (perhaps) just a few customers.

However I was more worried because this bug was reported many month ago from now, and with no new from you since.

Anyway, I’m glad to hear this bug is still on your To Do list, and hope you’ll be able to solve it easily in the next weeks (or months). And if you need more infos regarding this bug, feel free to ask!

Just a suggestion maybe: that would be awesome if a road map — to let the community knowing what comes next — and a changelog could be displayed somewhere in the forum or on your main website in Support section.
(But maybe this document already exists somewhere?)

We understand priorities, thanks for letting us know it’s on “the list”!

i don’t understand…

Should not be too complicated adding a line of code for artist, it is already there, when you scroll your library in album view, they can be sorted by date… but clicking an artist is by A to Z, same on remote.

@Damien3, de la rigueur partout !
