I am using Jriver 21 for a while and now discovered the nice features of roon, which I became member of.
I would urgently need some features of Jriver and could do so by using their audio engine in between roon and the DAC.
Is there a way to do this?
For the curious; one of the features of jriver is transpositon of tonal height without chaning speed. So I can convert all music based on 440 Hz a transparent with the original 436 Hz Mozart used.
Another feature is the DSP room equalizer built in jriver, which I did not try yet.
Would be happy to add this features to roon!
In Jriver, select options
select DSP Studio
select speed and (Tonhöhe in German, sorry)
change slider to -0,02 (this means 2% deeper)
this changes sound of “Kammerton a” from 440 Hz to 432 Hz approximately (its clearly hearable)
I’d also encourage you to listen to each alternative setting. Ultimately it’s your ears that are the best determinant of the sound that is best for you.
Edit: I’ve shifted this into Software Max as it may benefit from more general discussion amongst users and not require further attention from a dev. Feel free to open a new thread in Support if there is any continuing issue where you would like a developer’s assistance.
When I tried this, I was unable to get it to work. I could select JRiver as an output option for Roon, but when I started a song, both JRiver and Roon would indicate that the song was playing, but wouldn’t move past 0:00. Both Roon & JRiver function separately with no issues.
I’m at work now, but I’m looking forward to giving it another try. Does anyone have any idea what might have caused that behavior?
I have been trying this chain for awhile when I sign up Roon few months ago. My purpose was to use the convolution feature in Jriver. Even when I got it working, it’s highly unstable then with MC20. I gave up and purchase AcourateConvolver. And to my surprise, it sounds much better with greater transparency even though I’m using the exact same filters in with Jriver. And the additional candy is that AC works with Jplay. My chain is now Roon - AcourateConvolver - Jplay - DAC. Can’t be more happy with the performance of this combo.
After you have install AcourateConvoler, you will see AcourateConvoler [ASIO] in Roon Audio setup. You just have to choose that option and Roon will stream into it. Please remember that you gotta launch AcourateConvolver before Roon.
Do note that AcourateConvolver needs filters with cpv format. So you need to create them with Acourate Pro under Menu Room.
