Yup, I am aware names are spelt and organized variously in the auto online databases. That is not a problem for me, as I retype the names in one acceptable format so that things are collected coherently. I further retype album names in my own kind of shorthand to bring stuff together in a consistent sequence.
Example, Sonatas for piano [CD 1] and Complete Piano sonatas Vol. 1: I will retype both as Piano Sonatas CD 1
Furthermore I have recordings of the same work by different performers (not artistes) which I encode in the Album Folder Header to bring items together
Violin Partitas HS CD 1
Violin Partitas HS CD 2
Violin Partitas CT CD 1
Violin Partitas CT CD 2
Where HS = Henryk Szeryng and CT Christian Tetzlaff
Further orchestra and conductor, I usually choose either the orchestra or conductor whichever is more significant to me with regard to a particular recording LPO = London Philharmonic and CA= Claudio Abbado, sometimes both and include that in the so-called album name for the folder.
I don't like albums with works mixed form different composers and usually break those down into separate album folders for each composer. This mostly occurs for vocal works and I do have a composer called VOCAL in my system with the album name initially the vocal perfomer's name.
The biggest renaming headache is when for example I download all the Sonatas of Beethoven in FLAC format directly from my supplier instead of purchasing individual CDs. This done to avoid postage and customs duty and VAT. The tracks of individual albums are each numbered form 1 to 10, etc. So I get Track 1, Sonata 1, Movement 1, then Track I might get Track 2 as Sonatas 2, movement 1, instead of movement 2 of Sonata 1, etc. In this case I have to put individual Sonatas into separate folders, myself, that is editing the musical soup. I musical soup is also caused by the fact in Microsoft Track number 10 will come before Track 1, and I have to go and add in the zeros before the single digit numbers in order to ensure the correct order of play.
All this sounds complicated but it doesn't actually take very long.
I use Creative Player software to do manage the ripping as it was the software that came with the player I was using at the time I started ripping stuff and it does allow me to change say composer and album name and Asks apply to all tracks, that means I don't type the info for each track. Before this I used minidisc players and believe that was an altogether bigger headache. Each one had to have its own sticky label written by hand and copied in a slow process from CD to minidisc on my Sony HiFi set up
Now what was several thousand CDs weighing a ton in boxes stored in my library is now on about 20 x 32GB micro Secure Digital Cards
and backed up on at least 3 different brand name portable mini HDs. Oi, now we have 64 maybe 264 GB micro SDs? I will have to get some.
Why 3 different brand name HDs because one very astute Computer techie once suggested backing up on two different brand models meant they were unlikely to fail at the same time so I would always have one good copy. I keep the original CDs even though they do deteriorate overtime as maybe if all the electronic stuff were wiped in an EMP war I would still have the hard copies so to speak (joke)
And the most tedious of all is scanning the little CD booklets individually. A few companies provide them online but most still in this digital age do not and in fact sell digital recordings online and still cannot even supply the PDF format of their booklets. (Lazy short changers)
