Description of Issue

I’m running Roon without any dedicated Roon server hardware.

The app takes up a huge amount of resources, both in CPU & memory.

Can anything be done?

Perhaps if it was supporting a server I’d see it, but this seems like a very large amount of wasted resources.

Is there something like a Roon Lite?

No, Roon is a resource hungry application.

No, It was suggested before and Roon gave no interest is this.

It’s too bad. I’m tempted just to stop bc it dominates so much of my Mac resources.

What exactly is a „huge“/„very large“ amount?

Out of curiosity how much of your Mac’s resources is Roon using (RAM & CPU usage)?

And how many tracks are in your Roon library?

Also are you seeing this after Roon has completed its audio analysis of your music files (which is quite computational intensive)?
