Hi! If you're like me and you have different values in the "Artist" and "Album artist" fields as a result of compilations, collaborations, differing artist names etc..., you've probably been a tad irritated by the bracketed artist names that appear next to each song where the values differ. After a decent amount of tinkering, I've found a solution, albeit one that might
not be for everybody.
So, the first thing to do is to move the artist name underneath the track. Go to main panel -> customize panel -> "show settings" next to "directly under the selected album" -> select "Artist" as the field displayed beneath "title". Next, download the "Adobe Blank" font, a TTF version is fairly easy to find for free. When that's downloaded, change the font of the artist field to Adobe Blank at the smallest size possible. The artist field should now be entirely invisible!
In my library, Jesu
's artist is Justin Broadrick while its album artist is Jesu. With this fix, the artist field is reduced to little more than an empty space underneath each track. Some people could find this fix a bit irritating, but I believe it to be a massive improvement. Hope this helps to anybody that has this same issue!
