Playback only mode!

I have a M1 Mac Mini running Monterey, 16GB RAM. While scanning my large library Roon goes to 100-200% CPU!

And audio is choppy when playing from local hard drive.

Why can’t Roon have a play only mode, where it disables all extraneous activity like scanning…? Can’t be difficult to do. Sometimes, all one wants to do is listen!

Audirvana for example has a feature where it even offers to stop Spotlight indexing on the Mac.

Do you mean that your library is being scanned/indexed? There are settings for this…

You can drag-drop your music folder onto the Spotlight > Privacy box to stop macOS indexing it.
