Do you, by any chance, have a composer listed in your tags? (Or possibly a conductor) You can see these under “Credits” in Yate.
That will also supersede the album artist I believe.
It used to be that if you clicked on just the album art itself (in the old 2.3) that when you did cmd+I to open the tag editor, you could change the album artist. Not sure why this feature is missing from 3.5.
Is this an isolated incident… meaning JUST this album, or does Audirvana do the same with EVERY album?
Sometimes I have had an album that for one reason or the other was encoded funky or something and just had strange behavior.
A lot of times, I would take the album, use software to convert it to the exact same file type and edit the tags on the new copy and everything would be just fine.
For ripping, and splitting cue files I use XLD (free on Mac) - also is a great CD Burner
Also works great for converting… but for most of my file converting (especially in larger batches) I use MAX (also free on Mac)
For tagging, I use Yate.
And for any artwork files that come NOT in jpg format I use XNconvert (Free on Mac) to change from whatever they are to jpg.
