Is it possible to edit the list of roles in the artist tag? I miss some (Producer or Engineer).

Also, in the new instruments list, if you need one that is not in the list, it's not automatically added to the list when you type it. I.e. There is no "organ" instrument (yes, there are several options, but not simply "organ"), and it is necessary to write it each time.
And there are many that I'm sure I will never use, but that will show up when you're typing, which makes it slow to choose the right one.

By the way, when you add an artist and go to the role column, the artist's name is automatically added as a role, and you need to erase it before adding the instrument, which also slows down the process. Is this the normal behavior?

that wasnt intentional and will be fixed

for the next v3.1 update, the instruments can be edited in Configuration.xml at the end in the <Instruments>...</Instruments> element
and for the first opening of the dialog, MB will add in any values that are already used from files in the library

i would recommend you put Producer and Engineer under the Involved Persons tag. Entering them in the artist splitter will mark them in MB as performers
