Is there a simple way to have ROON sort by Folders ?
ROON is a fantastic program and works flawlessly with my PS Audio DSD DAC. Smooth and fast and above all never lost connection or fail to respond and all the other connection stuff that can send you hell.

Found the answer to my question by contacting ROON.
Here is copy:





Hi Terry,

Thanks for trying Roon and providing feedback! We really appreciate it.

One of the big reasons we started Roon was because we were sick of music applications that present our precious music collections as spreadsheets of text. If you're a music fan like us, you remember the joy you felt not just listening to the music you added to your collection, but also the joy of reading the liner notes, seeing who wrote your favorite cuts and who played guitar on them, and exploring your collection for under-appreciated albums you bought years ago and forgot about.

This is the experience we tried to recreate with Roon. An experience that does more than just playing to your speakers, but one that makes your music collection come alive as you browse it. One of the ways we do that is by going out and licensing lots of data, that tells us exactly when that track was recorded, who played bass, and who else covered it. The metadata is handled by our cloud servers, and updated in your collection automatically.

We understand that some potential customers want a list of files, but at the end of the day that's not something we're interested in doing for the reasons above. We've created loads of other features to help you quickly navigate your collection -- You can filter through your collection just by typing in the album browser, you can use Tags, Focus, and Bookmarks to navigate quickly as well. All that said, we did recently build a way for you to find file paths in Roon which you can read about here: https://kb.roonlabs.com/FAQ:How_can_I_f ... by_path%3F

There's been a massive discussion on our forums about file browsing and why it's not relevant in Roon, and how to use the other tools we've built. You can check it out here and feel free to weigh in: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/browse ... e/8728/266


Best,
Kevin Pierson
Roon La

Thanks for following up with us on this! It's always helpful to know the outcome even if someone locally couldn't be of help.
