That could be. One of the changes that RAAT brought was that Roon asks the DAC directly what it can handle and just goes with the DAC’s response. Previously, Roon would test the DAC to see what it could handle and then proceed. I am not sure what happens if Roon does not get an answer back from the DAC, I assume that it defaults to some basic setting. @mike might be able to speak directly about it.
I can see this potentially being an issue with all those DACs sitting behind various USB isolators/reclockers, etc.
Why on earth did you guys decide to release it just before the latest Katzenjammer album “The Gearbox Sessions” was made available for download? I’m now having to wait for Roon to rescan the whole library before I can listen properly to it.
Thank goodness I can still import it to Sooloos.
Apart from that, great job Roon! Most impressive is it doesn’t appear to me that you’ve had much sleep since the launch.
I know this is a crazy request with all the good things happening with this new build. But, regarding the iPhone app. Do you think down the future a ways you would incorporate streaming to the app like JRemote does? I know that a tall order but I love the JRemote app and use it constantly away from home. Now with the new Roon iPhone app, I’ll be using that at home frequently. I’m happy as is, just food for thought in the future. Thanks for all the great work developers!
Came home and did a quick precautionary backup, followed by an update of RoonServer on OSX, Roon on OSX, then got the message above and downloaded an iPhone (5S) version! No sign of the iPad version yet…
The OSX versions feel faster… much faster, and I’m noticing some nice UI tweaks. It remembered my zone setup perfectly (I only had one!).
You’ve also cleared one of the things that drove me slightly (and inexplicably) crazy - the ‘you haven’t played anything yet’ history warning. Its no more. Gone. Vanished. History opens in a snap! Thank you! I forgot to put it on my 1.2 wish list so its like a bonus present.
The iPhone app is a real treat. Yes, at first glance things are a touch small on the 5S, and the different menu order threw me, but small details. To be able to control things from the phone will be a massive enhancement in our household - taking our remotes from a single dedicated iPad, to three devices. This is really quite significant, especially once we set more than one room up.
Lack of Pi image means I’ll have to save that project for another time, but its exciting to know its there.
Sorry to the few people that have had some issues, but I still think we should let the team turn off their phones, shut down their emails, and head off for a nice long rest. Well, maybe not too long
Great update guys! Lots of nice looking features in this build.
None of my top 3 made it in to this one, but I’m now hoping for the next build. I have a simple “listening room” setup without multiple zones etc, so my top 3 are all related to the actual interface, metadata editing, album art, album grouping etc.
I saw that improved box set handling was mentioned, but I see no further details about this. What are the changes made here?
Edit: and I have just spent 15 seconds with the iPhone remote…looks excellent!
Edit 2: I think I’ve just worked out what the box set improvement is; it’s on the editing side, not on the interface side. Just easier to edit tracks in multiple-disc sets.
Simultaneous is a bit ambiguous here as it could refer to either of two things:
You can send different music (audio streams) to the MacMini zone (now a Core RAAT zone) and any AirPlay zone at the same time. Just select each zone in turn by clicking on the zone icon (between the Signal Path light and volume control on the footer bar), choose the music for that zone and play it.
Zones of different types (RAAT, Squeezebox, AirPlay, Meridian) can’t be grouped. There are fundamental differences in the way each of those types of zone implement audio streaming. Maybe one day @brian will figure out how it can be done (it’s not simple) but that is not this day.
Hmmm, the you haven’t played anything yet dialogue box is still driving me mad here even after updating everything.
Looks like some nice improvements with this build but my system has been reduced to a crawl for about 3 hours. It’s constantly indexing small numbers of tracks, finishing, then finding more. It’ll run through the night so hopefully by tomorrow I should be returned to a usable responsiveness.
