1.) When I open it up I see the first 6 alphabetical listings, then have to scroll to the right to move through my entire library. Is there an easier way to scroll? (I came from iTunes which was much easier with 12 listings shown and vertical scrolling.)
2.) How do I access DSP functions? (Wonder if being a free trial, does affects access.)
It will be in there. What screen are you trying to scroll and what remote are you using.
Honestly, you need yo go through the kB a piece at a time. On my iPad Pro I just drag the line across or in Album view, I can use the keyboard as well. I can also search or use focus to distil exactly what Iam looking for…
Using a MacBook Air. See my description of the screen. What line do you drag across? What’s an album view? What do you mean by “can use the keyboard as well”? Search just zeros in on a single artist/album, in iTunes it shows the before and after listing which is much more to my liking. I’m frustrated enough to give up, don’t want to search kB to find arcane explanations.
That being the case, you may not find Roon your cup of tea. There’s nothing I would call documentation, though there are wiki pages and the knowledge base and this very helpful forum. After 5 months I still don’t understand how to use half the features.
Roon is not like iTunes and operates on a different level. It’s about enriched metadata and using the search tools, tags, favourites and focus to find what you want quickly. It takes time to adjust but then you realise how easy it is to find things you listen to all the time you never look back. Scrolling on the desktop through artists or album view is via horizontal page scrolling not a long list to scroll up and down, how many items it displays per page is up to your screen resolution.
The icon in the lower right corner. For many people it will look like a speaker. Click it for enlightenment.
You can set your DSP functions from there.
Don’t know what you mean that it doesn’t show, but if you click on the little shiny light by the buzzy graph. on the bottom of the screen when a track is playing, you will see your signal path displayed.
Make sure that you both enable DSP as a whole and then enable the DSP sub-function you want to use.
BTW - A spirit of exploration is needed for discovery to occur. The trial lasts 30 days, no?
Yes, I couldn’t find anything either. That’s a major disappointment. Popular DSP software like REW or Dirac take you through a complete process of using a calibrated USB microphone to measure the speakers/room so you have a “given” problem to solve. Without this, applying DSP is just an exercise in subjective likes or wants.
