I let Roon do its stuff importing my library , it took a while BUT …
Rock & Pop etc were all fine but Classical well…Virtually all my box sets were split disc by disc .
I know the reason , I use a copy of the library on my External HDD as a source on my Cambridge CXN on USB which simply reads the file structure. To make this more visible virtually all my box sets have annotated CD folders. Ie a box set has 10 discs, CD1 … CD10. In my case CD1 - Piano Sonatas Op 2, additional text to indicate the disc contents
The additional text beyond CD1 etc I assume is seen by Roon as a new Album hence it splits them.
I have found the Merge Album function which works but I am looking at HOURS of work to straighten out my Boxes , I have quite a few. Not to mention splits in composition names .
Some works are split into 2 different name groups eg Goldberg Variations. I have yet to find a way to merge these.
Is there any shortcut to doing this. I have no desire to “un annotate” my folders as I will still on occasions run direct from HDD (we suffer many electrical storms in summer in South Africa, to save electronics we shut down virtually everything and run essentials on a UPS)
At this stage my library is so disjointed that I cannot sensibly use it , I am still using my existing JRiver Library.
I really want Roon to work but at the moment it looks like serious hard work ahead which was not the original intent
