Q: Why aren't cue sheets supported? I read they would be in r12!

A: Unfortunately, this feature did not make it into r12 or r13 but will be released as a DSP effect for r13 soon.

Q: Why aren't APL files supported?

A: This format uses cue sheets, so it cannot be implemented until cue sheets are supported. Again, this won't happen until the DSP effect for r13.

Q: Where is the "Delete Source File(s) After Conversion" option?

A: This is now a DSP effect. DSP effects can be downloaded here: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dbpoweramp-dsp.htm

Q: Where is the "Rip to RAM" feature?

A: If you have the PowerPack or Reference, this feature is enabled by default. It cannot be disabled.

Q: Why can't I submit corrections/additions to AMG or FreeDB?

A: This feature has returned in r12.2.

Q: Why can Batch Converter only put my files in one directory or in the original directory?
Q: Where is the "Keep Path on Convert" option for r12?

A: As you have noticed, the "Keep Path on Convert" option has been removed in dMC r12. It has been replaced by the Reference-only "Dynamic Naming" which allows for more powerful directory creation.
However, this means that PowerPack and free users only have two options: put the files in their original folder or put all files in one new directory.

Q: Where is the option to automatically rip a CD upon insert?

A: This option is no longer present in R12, it has been replaced by Batch Ripper.

Q: Why can't I add album art to multiple files at once?

A: You can, but not via the Edit Tag window, as long as you have the album art in the same folder as the music files and the album art is named "folder.jpg". Use the "[ID Tag Update]" utility in Codec Central, open the "Manipulation" tab, then click "Import album art from folder.jpg".
