In version 1.1 of Roon for the Mac, it was possible to set Roon to output to “System Output” then use the Mac’s Audio Midi Setup app to assign the stereo output of Roon to any of the channels of an audio device that supports more than 2 channels (e.g. a multi-channel USB audio interface).
With version 1.3 (I think also 1.2) that is not possible anymore. Roon always outputs its stereo audio to Channel 1 and 2 of the audio device and it is not possible to route that output to other channels of the device. This causes version 1.3 of Room to be completely useless for my particular set-up.
I understand that this problem may be too particular to deserve getting priority attention by the programmers at Roon Labs and I am happy to use v 1.1 of Roon while waiting and hoping that it would be addressed in a future version. However, I need to use the iPad Roon Remote app to control Roon on my headless Mac and the latest version of that app does not run with v 1.1 of Roon Core. The app insists that you upgrade the core before it can run.
I do not have a copy anymore of the old Roon Remote iPad app that runs with Roon core 1.1. If I do, I could upload it to the iPad (ignore the App Store alerts to upgrade it) and use it with Roon 1.1. That would solve my problem until, hopefully, the channel assignment problem is solved in a future version of Roon.
I tried hard to find that older version of Roon Remote iPad app to no avail. Does anyone know where I could get it?
