It’s unbelievable how crappy this software is and continues to be no matter what is done. Roon radio has zero ability to play anything remotely similar by genre or last song. A monkey could pick something closer. It’s not even the cost that bugs me. I just hate having something so broken it’s unusable as advertised. I hope they get bought by someone who understands how to write and QA software.
I run it for hours and it stays within a reasonable distance of the initial track, while bringing up tracks that I did not know. But recommender systems vary a lot in their skill depending on how “dense” the region of similarity space is that they are started from.
I agree with Chris Roon Radio seems to pick tracks that have no bearing to what I was listening to. worse if its classical. Why doesn’t Roon Radio play songs from the combination of the last 10 tracks you played?
