Two nights ago, importing Tidal albums into my collection was painfully slow. I understand that multi disc sets can take some time to import, but these were all single disc albums. Roon even prompted with the standard error message that the import was taking unusually long.
Last night, ripped CD albums imported into my collection possessed seemingly some, though possibly incomplete metadata matches. But the real sticking point was absolutely no Roon artwork matches. All of my ripped CD albums have embedded artwork at up to 800 pix resolution. Roon frequently upgrades that artwork. However, none of the artwork has been replaced on any of the recently imported CDs, which are almost all mainstream releases. Under the Album Editor -> Edit Fields -> Album Artwork menu, the Roon icon shows “No image.”
Could any of this be related to the AMG metadata shutdown? I experienced a similar issue with dBpoweramp two days ago, as AMG finally disappeared as a metadata source. Nearly all of my CD albums have been ripped with dBpoweramp Reference R15 with AMG as the primary metadata source.
