I just created a Roon account today. I pointed the library to my NAS music library folder and it imported and to my Tidal account and it imported.
From the home page, if I click the link that says 525 Artists, I am taken to the list of artists. But… There are a lot of artists that I do not recognize - not in my music folder, not tagged as a favorite artist or album or song in Tidal. For example, Abba, A Tribe Called Quest, AC/DC are among the first 8 that appear - but none are music that I have files for, or have liked in Tidal.
So what up? I assume there is some setting that I checked on import? Or maybe it is because these artists are on a Tidal Playlist? I am good to delete the library and start over if that is the fix.
During setup Roon will ask if you want it to add genre collections from Tidal to your library. Genres based on your local library are selected by default and will be added unless unselected (this has been the subject of feedback to the devs; I had hoped it might have changed by now).
I played around a bit with deleting and decided to just delete the Roon library from Finder and start over. Importing just from Tidal and unchecking the categories still imports them. I tried closing the “no thanks” item as well as the add albums to my library.
Also, if I select and artist, or album and then click the edit menu, delete (and other choices are greyed-out.
Did you remove the Roon database completely? Or just the application?
The easiest way to get rid of the albums is to focus on the tag, and just delete the albums – that will remove them from your TIDAL library and from Roon. Unfortunately, the tag data is stored in the database so if you trashed that the albums are still going to be in your Tidal library, but the albums won’t be tagged in Roon anymore
Are you seeing anything in the Tags dropdown at the top of the Album browser?
Do you remember which Collections you added during the initial setup? If so, you should be able to retag the albums by adding the collection again from the Collections tab of Roon’s TIDAL screen. Then you can remove the albums by following the instructions at the link @andybob posted above.
Could you please make a funktion to stop populating my library with the Tidal essentials. I delete the unwanted albums in my collection, but new albums appear all the time. This os something you should be more clear on during installation, and someting one should be able to change/remove in settings!!
There is no function that keeps on adding new Tidal Essentials / Collections to the Roon library beyond the initial setup stage if that option was selected. However there is a function that Roon will add Tidal favorited album/tracks.
Next time is happens, could you double check that these unwanted albums are not marked as favorites in Tidal.
Posting some screen shots of examples would help as well.
Carl, actually I didn’t, sorry.
Does that mean that if I want to avoid Roon placing albums in my library I have to deselect them from my Tidal favourites??
There is no way to just tell Roon to only show my actual music folder and that’s it?
It seems a bit intricate…
Focus --> Inspector --> Format --> Tidal
Then tap again to switch the filter from include to exclude
Works but if I have Tidal favorites, I’d like to see them.
On the other hand Mary Bilge, Kayne West, and the rest of these corporate wonders are of no interest to me. They are not my favorites. How can I delete them? I have tried following other directions on the site, but none of those seem to work. -
Roon seems like a great idea, but now I remember why I haven’t used my membership since last year and am about to let it lapse for good.
Roon imports favourites from Tidal. Either you or another user on your account appear to have favourited those artists/albums in Tidal. You need to unfavourite them in Tidal to prevent them reappearing in Roon.
No way. I HATE Beyoncé, Jaz-Z, and all this other garbage that Tidal recommends. I am the only subscriber in my house who even knows Tidal exists. I like Tidal’s lossless music, but I won’t listen to any of the stuff thy want to shove down my throat. Now I set the focus to exclude all Tidal music and it’s still giving me Mary J. Bilge. I don’t want to hear her, I don’t care about her. Make her go away forever.
Since a few days I’ve started a 14 day trail of Roon. I also signed up for a tidal trail to see how the 2 work together.
NowI must be missing something here, but after setup my artists and albums are littered with trash. I mean,
2Pac, backstreet boys etc etc. Nothing even remotely resembling artist that i have on my NAS (mostly metal/ prog rock)
I used a totally new, never used tidal account, and answered no thanks when asked for tidal import.
This way Roon is not workable for me. Am i missing somethig or am i forced do stop using roon because of this?
I logout, cleaned the library ( i showed my 5000+ songs from a previous install…) and logged back in again,
the whole lot of tidal albums are still showing up.
But i do remember something. The very very first time I installed Roon I did select some genres in Tidal, not knowing what it would do, my guess was it was used for suggestions:)
Could it be that, eventough I uninstalled Roon alot of times, this setting is stored somewhere in your backend database?
Feels a bit like that, since reinstalling does not affect it what so ever.
