Unrecognized albums

is it possible to send you the list of unrecognized albums which may help update your db?? @support

Albums unrecognized in your database are not necessarily unrecognized by Roon. For example: I digitized my cd version of Gershwin’s opera Porgy and Bess this afternoon. Conductor: Simon Rattle. Roon automatically identified the album as being performed by Linda Thompson (a folk singer, not an opera conductor). Made a joke about it here. One quick identification action and there was a second, correct album in Roon’s database.

You should write here about any problems you might have with identification.

Those are albums I have tried over and over to identifiy and could not find a match.

I have around 1050 albums. At initial setup about 80 were unidentified, however after a few hours of effort I hve about 35 albums that are unidentified

Are these relatively rare / unknown albums? If not, it would help if you could include their allmusic.com placeholders. This will speed up the process to update the metadata in the databases of Roon’s partners. I have around 14k albums, of which around 10 % (mainly classical) still is unidentified. Hopefully, Roon 1.3 will improve upon this :slight_smile:

Are you sure you’re looking well enough? Admittedly, sometimes it can be a challenge to find albums in Roon, but I have a few of the ones you mention and sometimes you have to be a bit creative in your search. As I said earlier, I hope (and expect) this will be improved upon in Roon 1.3 – especially with classical music!

[EDIT] P.S. Not trying to patronize you, just trying to help :slight_smile:

no no ididnt get it wrong its ok

ı find similar albums however the regarding dietrich fischer-diskeau… it is impossible to find the correct version … track numbers and titles don’t match sometimes the disknumber doesn’t match

btw the mentioned ones are sacd rips and most of the listed albums above are sacd rips and and the rest are mostly digital downloads

and sorry for the lis tit is a mess… and 1 or 2 albums have been listed incorrectly they are in fact identified but somehow they appeared in this export list

In fact 30 out of 1050 ( maybe more than 110 if you take box sets into account) is really a good result,

And by the time most of the above will be covered iam sure

however I am disappointed to see that the bee gees and the beatles are in the unidentified list

the rest is mostly compilations (various artsits)

Are you checking all the versions of the album when you identify?

Roon can display a number of different versions. You can see them under the album artwork.

This album has 4.

Cheers, Greg

What @Greg said. For instance, The Beatles “1” has 3 versions in the Roon database, and the 2nd of these 3 versions has 11 different editions, the 4th of which is called “1+”. Could this be the edition you have?

In my version total track count is 31 and Track 1 is Intro you should be dancing and track 2 is alone
However on roon versions those 2 tracks are presented as 1 single track maybe as a medley. The video version matches those 2 tracks however number of tracks is 34 on the video release

Use the video version, since you seem to have a DVD rip and use the 32 song version. Make sure the songs match.

This will give you Roon metadata.

Cheers, Greg
