I was wondering if Roon might be the solution to our music library issues at the college radio station I work at. We’ve recently imported over 70,000 CDs (over 800,00 tracks) using iTunes for the importing, but obviously we’re not going to use iTunes to access something this size. Can Roon handle this?
Also, assuming we can set this up for use in a couple of studios, we’re curious if there’s a way to make sure users can’t change or delete music but still have the ability to add notes, such as indicating tracks that are/aren’t suitable for airplay.
Finally, I noticed in one of the sections that special characters (like # or $) will cause problems. Unfortunately, there are a bunch of bands who apparently thought using those characters (and more) in their titles (and even band names) was a cool idea. I have no clue how I can go through nearly a million titles to ensure none will have this problem. Is there a workaround? We currently have the entire library on a Windows drive which seems to have no issues with weird characters in folder or file names. We also have a good amount of foreign characters as well.
It would be great if Roon were the answer to our quest as it seems to work really well with the samples we’ve used so far. Any advice would be most appreciated.
