I believe this is recent. Possibly since the last build (952?)
My Mac Mini Core runs OK when playing music. If I do anything with albums (search, edit, etc) the memory usage on the mini goes over 100% and Roon slows down considerably. The memory use on the player (
Clicking on an album can take a good minute for a response.
If I exit Roon and restart all is well again until I start any album activity.
Here is a screen shot of the core shortly after starting roon
Initially, the album activity I do (focus, tag, identify, search) will be very fast response and the core CPU % will come back down to 10-20%. But if I continue to work in that area, eventually the core will stay over 100% and the response for anything in Roon is too slow and I have to restart Roon on the core.
The music player is never affected and music plays on sometimes even if the Roon screen is frozen.
Maybe unrelated but I also have issues with focus…some areas aren’t showing up
Although I don’t have this issue as I’m still on way previous versions of both Roon and MacOS, I have wondered if this was a Rosetta issue but, at least on my M1 MacBook Pro, which serves as my controller, there is no option to force Roon to use Rosetta unlike some other software I use. So bang goes that theory.
