Importing Last.fm likes into Roon

Hello fellow Roon users. I recently signed up for Roon and as part of importing my library I would like to “import” all my last.fm likes into Roon. Moreover, I’d like to have bi-directional syncing.

It came to mind I could use the JS API but after looking into it for a while, it seems that there’s no way to “like” a song using the API.

Am I missing something? Is there no way to programatically like a song on my Roon library?

I’ve tried the following things:

  • search for a Roon “Library” API that’d allow me to Like, couldn’t find any
  • use the Browse API, submit a Search, and try to “Like” using the action_list
  • try Soundiiz, managed to sync my last.fm likes with TIDAL, but can’t seem to heart those songs when accessing the playlist from within Roon.

This is indeed not provided by the API.

Another use case for this: adding a “like”/“add to library” button to a Roon remote.

@support is there any workaround here?

So this is convoluted.

Use Soundiiz.

Export last.fm into Tidal/Apple Musc (iTunes) (verify they match, PITA)

Integrate Tidal/Apple Music into Roon, make a playlist of the Loves

Select all in Roon and “Love” Them.

Hi @Jose_Albornoz,

For Last.fm, Roon only does scrobbling at the present time. If you want, you can look into Bill’s suggestion of using Soundiiz, but do note that if you use Soundiiz to import the tracks, they would likely be imported as TIDAL favorited tracks (not local library tracks). See this following thread for further info in this regard:

I just followed your steps and it only shows 1000 loved tracks in soundiiz but I have 4500 loved tracks on last.fm. There must be a 1000 track limit with soundiiz, unfortunately.

Are you a paid subscriber to Soundiiz?

Yes, premium account.

Can you split the loves into 4 1000 track playlists?
