Summary0002915: 'Sort by' field for Artist / Album Artist / Album
DescriptionA number of users have asked for a Sort by field that would allow them to define a custom means of sorting the Artist, Album Artist and Album field.

Whether this is more critical for Artist or Album Artist is unclear, especially considering that Artist can have > 1 attribute.

Presumably this would be saved to a tag (e.g. ARTISTSORT, ALBUMARTISTSORT, TSOP... see: )

This requirement can also be lessened via support for more custom fields which users can use for this purpose. Consequently, setting this as low priority for now (on the assumption that we will add more custom fields).

It is also related to 0013031 - it seems, no support of sort fields can cause functionality problems for some Sony players.
Note, these field are used also in MP4/M4A format:
(iTunes tags Sort Name - sonm, Sort Artist - soar, Sort Album Artist - soaa, Sort Album - soal, Sort Composer - soco, Sort Show - sosn)

Rusty, we probably could add this in MM5.1 in order to support all the standards. While this field is probably useless for most users, it might be useful in some specific cases.
