It’s about “workflow”. I don’t know of another music focused ecosystem that has included a file management workflow. It’s always been left to the user to figure out their own workflow. If you look at other industries that software supports a very rich workflow of import, work, backup, DB management, restore, etc. But not in this industry. Roon could lead here.
I’d like to see direct Qobuz purchase import but why stop there. Why not connect to all the DL stores and do direct import? Then the store becomes one of my restore points.
I’d like to see a one-button back-up, sync, restore of all storage/music folders. Point at my NAS, point at a cloud storage provider (AWS, Azure, Google, Roon’s own, etc.).
I’d like to see DB versioning so I can pick a restore point other than “current”.
There are a lot of “workflow” things I’d like to see. Roon needs to decide if they want to dictate that flow or leave it up to the individual user. For a lot of users, designing and using such a workflow just won’t happen. It’s complicated. But those users would happily welcome something embedded in the ecosystem.
