Aurender Music Servers have the ability move Tidal and QoBuz streaming content to your local library. I tested this with 5 QoBuz albums, and it works. The Add to Library feature needs to be done on each album (see below). In other words, as per Aurender, "the "Add to Library" works as a tool to help you curate a vast personalized music library AND it helps blur the line between local content and streaming content".
Aurender provides the "select multiple" button to select up to 10 albums at a time and then use "add to my library" to add them all to your personal Aurender music library in one large batch. I am unable to determine how this works. I found the "add to library tab" but do not know how to select the 10 albums to move. Has anyone done this? If yes, please explain how to select the 10 albums.
The "Add to Library" feature does NOT download music files to your Aurender storage. Instead, it downloads LINKS to those files, which are added to your library like bookmarks or directories to the streaming content.
Obviously, this may be a little tedious at first to add all your favorites to your library, but once you have done that, you can just get in the habit of using the "add to my library" function moving forward as you acquire new favorites. Once content is added to your library, you can browse by all the standard filters that are available for browsing your local library. This means all my stored albums and streaming content will be in the correct sort sequence. This is a big plus for me.
To be honest, I am on the fence and cannot decide if I should or should not do this. I do not know if I want my local library and streaming content combined together. I agree that this feature does solve my album sorting issue. I am thinking about it since it is interesting.
Is anyone using the Aurender add to library feature? How do you like your main library combined with your streaming content? Any recommendations?
