Hi @George_Akimov1, very sorry for the issues you’re having here. Part of the audio analysis process consults with our back-end servers and we’re currently experiencing a minor outage which is impacting some users. We’re working on it and it should be back to normal soon.

You may want to temporarily disable audio analysis in Roon’s settings so that this doesn’t have an impact on your normal usage.


Thanks, I suspected something like this. Is there a monitoring page somewhere to check the current status of your different background services?

No but its been asked for many times.

A post was split to a new topic: Audio analysis file count growing

Thanks for explaining. Even during slow track analysis I was able to use my system for playing music without problems.
I only noticed it while adding new audio files with mqa. Normally Roon indicates the mqa details in under a minute after adding. After that didn’t happen i realized the slow track analysis as root cause

We made some changes to our back-end process that deals with audio analysis and are currently tracking some unexpected strangeness (highly technical term). This appears to be slowing down the analysis process. We’re investigating and hope to have a solution in place in the coming days.
