Hello,

I just downloaded Snakeoil for the first time tonight. Wow excellent work! I wish I had discovered this earlier. However It seems that only 1 server can run at a time. I like to run Roonserver at the same time as Hqplayer because they can integrate together so Roon is the GUI, and HQP is the DSP engine. Would it be possible to allow this to happen? 

Thanks in advance!

Hmm. Didn't know it can do that... In a way yes you can, but you have to do this from the command line. Select Roon, and SSH to the server, and enable the server for HQPlayer. Then reboot the computer and then both will be running.

In the next beta (or release) - I'd add an option to start both.

Just so I can save some time.. Can you briefly described how Roon and HQPlayer works?

Do you run both of them in a GUI? or one of them is a background process?

You can just add Hqplayer as an networked audio device in the Roon audio setup. All you need to do is have both open on the same computer, or on the same network. 

More info here:

When you run Roonserver, you just control from Roon running as a remote on a network connected device. Then for Hqplayer, you can just use VNC like you do already. You basically find the settings you like best in HQplayer, then just use Roon for everything after that.
