Noticed that the Album Artist category just throws anything that lacks an Album Artist tag into an "Unknown" folder... It would be really helpful for Poweramp to just automatically read over the Artist tag if no Album Artist tag is present, like many other players do. This way, it would be easy to just use the Album Artist category without having to flip back and forth between it and the normal Artist category. After all, for albums that only have one artist name, it would be rather tedious to go through and add Album Artist tags for every single one.
I'm new to Poweramp, just downloaded the free trial and am trying to decide whether or not to purchase the full version. I did a quick search of the forum and didn't see information about this but forgive me if it's already been discussed. I'm looking to categorize my library by "Album Artist" as this is how I have things sorted out the way I like on my PC. In my PC software (MusicBee for reference) I have it set up so it is categorized by "album artist" but if there is no album artist tag, it will default to the "artist" tag. This is common on a lot of the music I have burned a years ago and the album artist would be the same as artist so I have not changed it. With the default settings in Poweramp, it looks like if "Album Artist" does not exist it will just go to an "Unknown Artist" grouping even if "Artist" exists. I've looked through the settings but haven't found anything. Is it possible to categorize by "album artist" but fall back on "artist" if it does not exist?
