View Full Version : PerfectTUNES AccurateRip: Different behaviour for wave and FLAC?

Hello,

I have bought dBpoweramp (Music Converter & CD Ripper) and use it daily to rip CD's and I always verify them with dBpoweramp's AccurateRip functionality.
Until today, I have always ripped them as wave files. Now, I would like to change my whole music to the FLAC format. Before I converted my files, I have checked them with PerfectTUNES AccurateRip and it told me that all files were accurated ripped (no miracle). Now, after I converted these files to FLAC, I have used PerfectTUNES AccurateRip once again, but now, suddenly PerfectTUNES AccurateRip tells me that some of the albums can not be found in the AccurateRip database, even though I used the FLAC reference encoder including also its verify function to ensure the encoding went properly.

Why did that happen?
Does PerfectTUNES AccurateRip not work properly?
Are there different databases for wave and FLAC files?

This is an important question for me, before I buy PerfectTUNES AccurateRip, I have to be sure that I can rely on it to a hundret percent.

Thank you very much.

Make sure you have the wave and flac files seperated and that perfecttunes is not indexing both, as it can combine the wave and flac files together and create a strange album with twice as many tracks.

Thank you very much for your answer.

This is not the case; the only non FLAC files in the folders are the cover pictures. I have deleted them and this did not solve the problem.

First try PerfectTUNES beta r1.5 (in the beta section of this forum), it had improvements to AccurateRip.

there is a details button, click it and post the results for an album please.

I have uninstalled PerfectTUNES 1, downloaded and installed PerfectTUNES Beta 1.5, clicked on "Clear Database Cache", deleted the folder and added it again and let PerfectTUNES check it again from the beginning. Unfortunately, the result is the same.
Export for an album (consisting of two CD's) which hasn't been found:

What I haven't said yet is that the new encoded FLAC files do not have any ID3 tags, but these shouldn't be important for AccurateRip, or? Apart from that, the compression rate I used for FLAC was 8 if that plays a role.

Thank you.

I added the ID3 tags and now it displays "Cannot Check: Incomplete Album - 15 Tracks"

Okay, I have separated the files into two folders how they actually were on the CD's and it worked out:

However, this was not neccessary when I used wave files.

I will see whether I also get the other albums to work when I add ID3 tags and spearate if neccessary.

I will let you know if there is still a problem.

Thanks again.

Did the wave files have ID Tags?

Sandorian

Yes, I added them with MediaMonkey.
However, adding ID3 tags to the FLAC files did not help.
I had to create two separate folders and split the files between these folders how they actually were on the CD (see my last post "CD1" and "CD2" folder).
This was not neccessary for the wave files. They do have ID3 tags, like the FLAC files, but they are all inside one folder (see the post before the post before my last post).

There must be some difference, such as the album name is different for each of the 2 discs (on wave) or there is Disc 1/2 Disc 2/2 tag set.
