Select default Release County and Medium

Is there any way to get Lidarr to default to a specific release for albums? I'm slowly importing my library, and it seems I'm spending a lot of time selecting the album versions to get the correct country of release, and a more useful medium. For example it picks Japan an awful lot, even though the number of available tracks makes the US version the obvious choice (12 tracks vs 10). Or it picks the Vinyl version which screws up the track order and labels it with A and B instead of the CD version.

Like, if I could tell it to default to US CD release and that be the default, it would solve like 90% of my matching issues.

This would be awesome, I am running into the same issue; to the point, that I stopped using Lidarr to actually manage my music, but to ONLY get new music.

Release preferences including country and media. I tend to have a bias towards collecting the earliest version, or a deluxe or remastered edition. At minimum, it would be useful to include the release year in the edit album release.

+1 for this. Now I actually look into it, I'm finding that basically all my albums have selected the wrong release. Just the ability to say "default to CD" and "default to United Kingdom" would probably solve 90% of the issues.

is this a thing?

Not sure if this ever got traction, or if the devs ever saw it...but this is something that is keeping me from allowing Lidarr to actually manage my music. I hate getting Vinyl rips, and would much prefer to just get a US CD release.
