Hi guys,

Serious issue with new update and I hope we can find a fix fast. This record has to go out tomorrow (please help!)

Project is completely mastered and ALL metadata is entered correctly from top to bottom in Project Window. When I burn a disc, or produce CD protocol sheet, it states myself as the Artist which is incorrect. I went back to the Song file file and updated the metadata there, then clicked update Mastering file, which was completed. But still, my name is printing out as the Artist.

For the hell of it, I went back to the Start page and edited my personal info so that it stated the Artist's name, did a fake song file, sent it to a project, then ran off a copy of the CD protocol and then the artist name appeared correctly.

But I don't have time to go back and re start the project, since the ISRC's were already purchased to match the exact track times, fades, etc.

Another little bug I noticed: In the project window, I bounced my track with all the plugins... then accidentally bounced it again and it brought the signal to zero. I hit 'undo bounce', and nothing happened - I lost the track completely. I tried restoring to previous versions with no luck. This is why on the attached pic, there is no artist name included on track 1 as I had to import from a previously burned master copy.

Any help would be great, because I cannot send this out with my name attached as the artist... hopefully you can see the visual when you open the attached picture. Thanks!

See the attached image that shows how to expand the track panel to edit the artist name for each track directly. Those names are not inherited from the album artist name.
