    Mac OS Music App: Library jumps to last artist after any edit?

    Hi all! Every single time I make any edits to my Music Library, such as rating a song, deleting a song, editing any metadata — my library immediately jumps all the way to the bottom. As if I took the curser and dragged it all the way down, or searched for the last artist in my library. Happens...

    Music App in Monterey is horrible.

    MacOS Music app isn't the best app, ain't it. For example navigating playlists and sorting between tabs (Album, BPM, Genre etc.) is terrible. Searches do not show the correct results, importing tracks always skip a song or three. Very annoying. A large ALAC library, (almost) never caused any...

    Problem with Music app loading

    I have a M1 MBP running Big Sur 11.6. I have a music library of 31 GB, resident on the local HDD. Thinks have been 'OK' (though I consider iTunes to have been a seriously-flawed program in 2001 which got more flawed with each iteration, and the Music app has maintained that devolution). But I...

    Music App Lossless Issue

    Has anyone noticed that the Lossless icon disappears after moving between lossless tracks or albums? I'm sure it's also reverting to lossy playback. Rebooting the Music app fixes it but it does't las long before it happens again.

    Universal Apple Music - Any way to Organize Albums?

    What's the best way to organize albums in Apple Music? For instance, can I have an album for "New Wave", or whatever, and drag individual albums to that folder -- without having it atomized into a playlist?

    iTunes/Music App cutting of songs that have been recently added

    Hi all, I am new here and hope this is the right place. So the iTunes/Music app has been working very wonky in the past and I think a lot of people have had very weird problems with it in the past. This is the last straw for me because I have tried a lot of things to figure out why this is...
