Waveform in play bar gone

For the last month, all the new music I’ve put into my watched folder have only had a straight line playbar and not the waveform. My older albums that were imported still show the waveform. Is there a setting I’ve missed or is something else going on.

Did you turn analysis off? That would do it

I certainly did. What is the difference betwwen Fast and Normal? Just CPU time. Is the process just a once through analysis and then analysis upon import of new items?

Yeah, it’s basically how nice we are to your CPU.

IMO, set it to fast and let it run overnight so your collection gets fully analyzed. Then you can set it back to normal for future imports if you want.

Yup, once through.
