I have Roon on an iMac 2019 3,6 GHz 8-Core i9 with 32GB RAM, and it takes me 19-20 seconds to start my Core. In my opinion, that’s frustratingly slow. How long does it take you? What kind of Roon Core do you use? (Everything else in Roon works really fast.)
6k albums/61k tracks (all locally stored)
Qobuz for exloring/discovering music (no Qobuz albums in my library)
Hard to compare that with another user. I have 22k albums and 216k tracks in my library on the fastest Mac ever made. All I know is it was instantly loading my library and all albums for an artist. Now I get loading UI on focus, albums page, re-opening iOS app after it’s been idle for a few minutes. Performance blows and it’s not me!
Same here. Core startup takes 19 seconds now (MacBook Pro 13’’ 2020). Used to be a lot faster. Apart from this, Roon works as fast as always. No other “speed problems” here. I got 9k/100k tracks in my library. I use both Tidal and Qobuz.
Core startup has become significantly slower (on both my Windows PC and my two Macs), but I can live with that because the search function and the loading of albums etc. are still as fast as before the update.
