    Harmonising online library tags with own library

    Having had Qobuz for a while now, I've stopped buying CDs, but I have never got to a satisfactory position with combining the libraries.

    I like to have my music shown as "Roy Cocker" but sorted lastname, firstname, so in that case under "C". I have achieved this by using the artistsort and albumsort tags on my own library, and it's been fine.

    For Qobuz, up until recently I have been able to use "new music", but now that is out of control. There are so many albums in my Qobuz lists that it's all over the place.

    What are people doing about this? Do I just have to give up on sorting by last name? Is there a way to create a "dummy" artist with no album, what tells the server where to sort it?

    What I would like is a simple file, like a CSV file, that I could edit and that would have "artist name" and "file under". So I would have "Joe Cocker,Cocker Joe" etc. Possible?

    Unfortunately Qobuz has no concept of artist sort. Joe Cocker is Joe Cocker and that’s it.

    That said I don’t think any of the Online Music streaming services are any different so don’t blame Qobuz per se.
