Description of Issue

Happy new year !

I performed a clean installation of Roon 1.8(884). After the database was created, Roon crashes every time I perform a search from the Mac OS application or the iPhone app. I am attaching the logs for your investigation using a WeTransfer link. ( WeTransfer - Send Large Files & Share Photos Online - Up to 2GB Free )

Looking forward for your input since the product is not usable with out the search functionality !

Thank you,


Hi @Konstantinos_Zagalik,

We’re sorry to hear that you were having issues after the update and apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

Since there’s been a delay in responding to your your issue, can you please update us on your current status? Are you still experiencing crashing on your Mac devices?

We’ll be watching for your reply and get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks!

Hi Jamie,

Since ther was no reply I had to debug it myself…

After a painfull process, I have managed to isolate the folder causing the crash and remove it from roon.

Evrything is back to normal now.

However I would suggest that you check the log files and investigate the root cause in order to identify the issue and fix it for the future releases.


Hey @Konstantinos_Zagalik,

Will do, I’m glad to hear that things are working for you now! Please feel free to reach out if you ever have any other questions or issues. Happy listening :headphones:
