    Re: Editing before ripping

    What revision of dBpa are you using? This feature and how it works with the date and genre were updated a revision or two ago. But I proceed as I described above all the time, with all the tags,...

    Re: Editing before ripping

    When you highlight a track (or a group of tracks) the fields at the top change the values of only the highlighted tracks, not all. Exceptions are album stuff like album artist or album title. But...

    Re: Rip & Write ReplayGain

    From previous posts answered by Spoon, I recall the replay gain apply DSP applies the replay gains already in the tags, not new ones. Therefore you'd run the convert twice, first to create the tags,...

    Re: Genre tagging support

    I've been ripping a lot of "popular" (as opposed to my usual Caribbean) music recently. I've noticed in some cases it appears that someone, probably someone from the record company, loads the...
  5. Re: Variations in mastering? CD ripping a flawed process?

    The issues would appear to be in the digital players. I've never experimented with recording the output when you push "play". If you don't want some form of clicks, the player would need to fade in...

    Re: Question

    Yes, you can copy metadata from one rip to another. Put enough basic metadata with the new recording so you can find the files afterwards. Then open two instances of Windows Explorer, one of the...

    Re: Discogs Release ID

    Not sure whether this question is for me or for fidtheforce? I'm using Mcaffee. If I go to the actual Discogs page with the artwork, I have no problem dragging a copy of it to dBpoweramp. It just...

    Re: External Multi Ripper Ideas & Help

    For a few hundred CDs, no need for a Nimbie. I recently acquired what now appears to be about 2000 pop CDs (for free) from a radio station that was about to dump them. I've been spasmodically...

    Re: External Multi Ripper Ideas & Help

    Well, how large is your collection? That would probably influence your collection. If you only have a few hundred CDs, it will probably take you longer to get your Nimbie working than it will just...
  10. Re: Success! Finally ripped my whole CD collection! Here's my story (w/ stats). . .

    Wow, congratulations. First, you keep statistics better than I. I know how many folders there are, and how many files. Windows Explorer tells me that, but I have quite a few files that weren't...

    Re: Looking for the best cd-drive for my needs

    You don't really need an (expensive) enclosure. Just get a sata to USB adapter that comes with a power supply. The drive is already in its own box. Plug the cables in, you are good to go.

    I...

    Re: Discogs Release ID

    I also continue to have the issue that the Discogs album art doesn't get copied to my dBpoweramp album data when I successfully use the manual metadata search feature.

    Also, a "feature request",...
  13. Re: Sometimes the CD turns out all accurate despite some spots/smudges

    Actually, what is far more likely if you are ripping is that you are getting accuraterip data for the wrong CD. This is particularly true for CDs with one or few tracks, as you may have already...

    Sticky: Re: CD Drive Accuracy 2019

    No, the built in internal laptop drives are, in most cases no better than the external ones. The good drives, in my experience, are the "internal" 5 1/4 full height desktop drives. Use them with a...

  17. Re: Mass Removing Leading and Trailing Whitespaces From a Tag Field

    Excuse me for getting away from the OP's issue, but a couple of comments on using the EBU R128 standard for volume normalization. While it works fairly well with a lot of material, be aware you are...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    To repeat from a post I made on this forum four years ago, one reason you see "non-HDCD" HDCD encoded CDs is that some recording engineers and producers like the "sound" of the encoder/analog to...

    Re: Support of Gracenote DB

    Well, they may well be found because you may have submitted the data to CDDB/Gracenote using winamp back when you ripped them. I have the same situation. Other than that, I found back then that...
  21. Re: Ripping Mission Accomplished (mostly) - Thanks to Spoon and Illustrate

    Re: Support of Gracenote DB

    If you really want access to Gracenote, does Winamp still access it? It did when I ripped much of my library to m4a using it 10 years or so ago (big mistakes, first many bad rips, second sometimes I...

    Certainly, looking for a used copy is probably your best bet. But you shouldn't be afraid of rerips, as long as you listen to the results afterwards. I recently acquired (for free) a box of a lot...
