So I know from previous topics that Roon wants it experience to be as non-technical and as musical as possible. Nonetheless, my experience is that
CLASSICAL - 3 parameters minimum: Composer, Work, Performer(s)
NON-CLASSICAL - 2 parameters minimum: Work, Performer(s)
Type Beethoven (good). Add Symphony No. 9 (nothing available).
It seems you can only search by 1 parameter. Not good if you have 500 Beethoven recordings. And even if you do that, it displays far from everything in my library.
- If you type Beethoven Sum#9 in Wikipedia, it will find Beethoven Symphony #9 in D minor, Op.125. Roon could have that capability. But the non-finding of works by Beethoven (this is just an example) does not seem to be caused by errors.
- I have tagged every album in my library (308,000 tracks) with MP3tag (currently on PC, V.3.11). Is this a problem? I do not use the tag ALBUM ARTIST (owing to its often arbitrary nature in Classical) but always fill ARTIST, with comma separator for multiple artists.
- Roon has stated in the past an aversion to a file folder display search method (which always seemed a good method to me, since the linguistic evidence is that inverted tree structure with labelling is a primary cognitive organization method for homo sapiens). So how about an ADVANCED SEARCH option giving the above 3 categories and any other (version, label, whatever) you might care to add.
