Add a sort by Album - Artist - Track No

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to request for a simple sort option.

I just wanted my music to play continuously like an album while on a playlist. A way that an album should play like.
From Album > artist > track no. (not by title).

 

There is currently no way to do this. I like my music to play from track number rather than from the title alphabetically. Thanks

You know that you can change the order of the songs in the list options ? Track# is an available order.

I saw that option but that's not it. When they are on a playlist, different albums from different artist goes sorted by track number.
For Example, 2 albums from different artist will sort like this:

1. track 1 - album1
2. track 1 - album2
3. track 2 - album1

4. track 2 - album2

5. track 3 - album1

6. track 3 - album2

 

which i'm after is

 

1. track 1 - album1
2. track 2 - album1
3. track 3 - album1

4. track 1 - album2

5. track 2 - album2

6. track 3 - album2

As you can see in my attached image. If I sorted by Artist/Album, it get sorted by Title. And if I sorted by Track No., all song will get sorted only by track no.

Playlists are just a flat file of pointers to songs, they have no concept of albums or artists. However if you add an album to a playlist, the individual songs will get added using the sort-order that the source album (or artist, or whatever) was set to.

The only way to do it would be to add to that re-sort options list, which permanently changes the physical order of the items in the list. Or do it manually of course, but it's a bit of a faff dragging multiple items around a long list.

The other way to do it would be via an external app, such as New Playlist Manager in the app store.

Technically there's no reason lots of things can't be added :) it's just a question of how Max prioritises his time. In the meantime, you might find New Playlist Manager does the job for you without needing to manually edit your list files.
