Weird sorting/tag problem
#13
Prefering alias name given when artist is given as an album artist is a possibility, although you still get different alias names between albums too.  Perhaps weighted use instead? Another approach would be to gather all the alias names and let the user pick/edit the one they want to use, although that could be quite involved to implement nicely and manual editing is only viable for small libraries, big ones want intelligent automation. Libraries grow organically, new music being added over time without a rescan of the older stuff, so having an artist name change after it was created could also create issues e.g. naming of folder for local art.

I would like the library content to be invariant to the order in which music files are scanned, I have managed to make it much better than it was when I arrived but it isn't perfect. The more clever the process gets the harder it can be for a user to see where the results came from, perhaps it is complex enough? One could always say it is down to consistent tagging,  Musicbrainz giving alias names within a file not withstanding.
