Provide a "Sort by Artist Last Name" setting like Roon


I’ve never really understood why I have to wrap my mind around why most music software players sort artists by first name. Maybe Apple iPod did this initially and everyone followed suit. Roon finally provided a sort option in their 1.5 version.

Last time I looked, physical record stores still put Bruce Springsteen under ‘S’, not ‘B’.

Sorry for the rant, but I’m an old curmudgeon who is now using Lightning DS and I don’t want to spend the money on Roon. Why should an old dog learn new tricks when a few lines of software code could make them happy :slight_smile:

And no, I don’t buy vinyl or CDs anymore. I buy FLAC for music I want to own. I own an Auralic Mini.


Which is fundamentally wrong! :wink:
All artist names are trademarks, including any blanks, therefore they are not divided into first and given names. IMHO of course! :smiley:
