ROON
Roon's original priority was match against it's meta data source to get all that extra rich meta data. That was priority number 1, and user tagging was an afterthought. Over the last couple years Roon has been reworking things to allow more user specific tagging as they find many users are meticulously tagging their music. I assume some major changes needed to be made to the local database to accommodate this.

It's getting better.

I don't think that there are "many" users that are particular about their tagging, on the Roon forum, probably the best place for Will to discuss this, there are very few people who hold a strong view on local tagging. As the whole initial premise of Roon was to increase the automatic meta data and linking process surely if one is really worried about personal tagging then Roon is not the software of choice.

I think initially that was true, Roon didn't add much for well tagged collections.  Now though, with their great remotes, roon endpoints, HQ player integration, squeezebox & sonos integration and eventual remote sync and playback, Roon offers something for even the most meticulous taggers.


Go Roon!!!

The fact that Roon offers the ability to properly tag and organize album info is a huge benefit that far exceeds (IMO) what simple file tagging can allow and does so in a scalable fashion.   I hope that they continue to improve our ability to manage our own music databases using their software beyond what file tags and their metatags can provide.   The infrastructure is in place.  It's just a matter of improving the tools to manage it.   I do have great confidence in where Roon is going.

Again than you for your assistance/comments on tagging in Roon.  I also logged my issues on Roon site, which I found a bit daunting to navigate, and thus I was a bit sceptical about whether I would get a reply as well as the timeliness of any reply.  I also logged a request here knowing how helpful people on this site are.  However, my scepticism about Roon was unwarranted, not only did I get a reply but a considerable extension of my trial period so that I will be able to also trial the new software that apparently is about to be released.  A definite plus from me for both Devialet Chat and Roon customer service.  Wink
