Hi John. I don’t know the size of your library but 1.3 re analyses your audio This process is not quick and is very dependent on the CPU and the I/O between the core and the music storage. I would check if this is the issue by going into setting and turning off Audio Analysis and seeing if everything begins to get faster. If so, then I would run the audio analysis during times you are not going to use the system; for example, overnight.
Thanks for your suggestion. My library is not small. It contains 96 thousand tracks. But I find RoonServer reads or adds files into Roon database at a very slow rate since Roon 1.3. The addition of the music files into Library takes a long time and no success. It didn’t happen before Roon 1.3. I would like to have Roon team to investigate what’s the possibility of that cause.
After I change to use a windows laptop as a Roon Remote control, the reading speed of the Roon Core seems back to normal. Don’t know what’s the cause, but the result is very satisfying. Enjoy a lot of the new Roon 1.3. Thanks, Roon team.
