I have about 100 albums in one particular file format (ALAC) and want to change them to FLAC, converting using dbpoweramp. The files are in a watched folder on a NAS in [artist]-[album]- structure.
Once I convert, how can I update my roon albums? Not sure what the right process is without starting all over with a new library.
Of minor concern: will I lose (i suppose I will) any custom tagging I’ve done?
Thanks for any advice,
EVerytime I’ve changed format on an album, Roon has treated it as a new album and I have had to redo all the meta-data.
I advise you to follow the steps below:
- Close Roon
- Remove ALAC albums from the watched folder
- Convert ALAC to FLAC
- Move FLAC albums back to your watched folder
- Launch Roon
- Wait while Roon re-scan the watched folder.
Answering your question - yes, you will lose all edits you’ve done to these albums.
Thanks…perfect…exactly what I needed and worked like a charm.
