I’m trying to run a shuffle for a specific artist but roon only shuffle the one album I have in my library for this artist, which is not what I’m trying to do. I do not want to add all the artist album to be able to shuffle its albums.
Yep, I have that in my post for Albums and there is a section for artists.
However, even with it turned on I do not have the option to shuffle from the Giant Sand artist page.
I only have “play now” and “Start Radio”.
As a test I added one album to my library and then I had the shuffle option.
But then it shuffles only the tracks from albums that are in the library, as the OP noted. Therefore, you have to have at least one album of the artist in the library to begin with, else the Shuffle option does still not show:
Yeah… but my goal isn’t to shuffle a single album because I added it to my library first. It’s to shuffle an artist on roon.
It makes no sense to add albums to your own content to shuffle an artist. There is no way to shuffle an artist in roon, then. Which, for me, makes no sense for a music player. The goal is to be able to discover new sound and albums, not to stick to your own content…
Yeah, I got that already further up Just explaining to bearFNF why he has no Shuffle option for Giant Sand even after enabling the option in Settings. He probably simply does not have any Giant Sand album in the library.
I know that doesn’t solve your problem, it just confirms what you already suspected, that Shuffle in the Play menu for an artist only works for albums in your library
