What content will Roon crossfade? When will Roon not crossfade?

Roon will crossfade content when:
  1. Both tracks are the same sample rate and bit depth
  2. Your Core has enough time to calculate the crossfade
Roon needs some time to calculate the crossfade, so if you have a 5-second crossfade set, you may not hear a fade if you seek right near the end of the track. Also note that crossfade works better when your collection has been fully analyzed, as Roon detects silence at the start and end of your tracks, and will only fade to actual audio content once your files have been analyzed.

Finally, note that in order to crossfade DSD content, it will be automatically converted to PCM.
