    How can I get "All Artists" to display artists only?

    Hello,
    I have had this problem for a while but I cannot seem to figure out how to set up LMS.
    all I want is that every artist in my collection is displayed under "Artist" or "All Artists" or whatever might be in the menu. This must also include artists that are not album artists but must exclude composers or conductors etc.

    I have installed the "configure music menus"-plugin.

    What is the difference between "Gruppe" and "Band"?
    What is the difference between "Kuenstler" and "Interpret"?
    Why can't "Gruppen" be "Interpreten"?
    Why can't "Band" be "Album Artist"?
    This is utterly confusing.

    "Album Artists" artist are shown if you have at least on album of an artist. Madonna for example. If you also have a single track of that artist on a compilation, it will be listed here also (IF you have at least on album of that artist.)

    "All Artists" will show all artist you have. If you have one track in a compilation from artist x but no album of that artist, he will be found here but not in "Album Artists", whereas Madonna will be in Album Artists AND All Artists.

    Bad translation, bad choice of words, because of bad translation, should be, yes.

    Gruppe: "Kompilationsalben als Gruppe auflisten" -> "Compilations gruppieren"
    Band: Orchester
    Künstler: general term that is used here for composer, conductor, band, and artist.
    Interpreten: Whatever you chose for "Künstler"
    Band should be in Album Artists, according to your screenshot, though.

    But from what I've read, you want:

    Use two separate lists for Album Artists and All Artists
    treat TPE2 MP3 tag as Album Artist

    Don't know what "configure music menus" does. I don't think you need it for what you want to accomplish.

    Thank you for your reply.
    This is what I tried but under it returns all shrewd people (i.e. Composers etc.) too and I don't want this.

    This is why I thought I'd give this plugin a try...

    Oh, you're right. I never use "All Artists" because it's just too crowded.

    You could build your own menus with Multi Library and Custom Browse. You wouldn't even need Custom Scan.

    Thanks but isn't Custom Browse something you ll have to pay for? What Multi Library is I don't know...

    It was, but now it isn't. Multi Library lets you create libraries defined by tags. This can be achieved by other means, too, but I don't know if the native solutions would work with Custom Browse.
