Artists For Individual Tracks Don't Appear

Question

I can't see a way to have the artist for each track show in Label Creator for compilations. The artists display in the Music Disc Creator grid. I didn't give the compilation an artist entry, since there's no single one to assign. Is there a way to have them show before or after the track title? Thanks.

Make the artist name part of the music name. :rolleyes:

 

I don't believe that there is any other way. Search the EMC 8 forum because I think that question has been asked before.

Thanks for replying, Steve. I had searched for a thread on this before posting, and searched again now, but couldn't find a discussion. Maybe it's a hard search to construct to narrow down to a reasonable number of results.

 

But from your answer, I guess that adding artist to a track title isn't an option in the Roxio 8 Label Creator. I'll probably go back to Nero for creating the labels, since it works even if I've burned the project in Roxio. The drawback is that the entire CD has to be imported into Nero to get the label information. But it's done properly in Nero: Artist - Title, then the track time right justified in a column, not run into the title as in Roxio.

 

The reason I use Roxio at all is that the metadata import is easier for individual tracks where the entire CD wasn't imported, it's easier to edit, and generally more complete. Why they do such a good job of acquiring the data, and then not let you use it in an obvious way, is beyond me.

 

Do you know if later versions of Roxio Label Creator handle this better?
