    Re: Beginner question on dynamic naming

    there is no "album level" metadata. All metadata is contained within each track (artist, album, album artist, etc.). If you've set the artist tag to "Various Artists" then that's what will show up...

    Re: Need Suggestions on Music Data Tag Reader

    In my opinion, the only concern is proper backups (which you seem to be doing) and making sure files are not corrupted (which is easy to do). If tags get edited inadvertently, that's no big deal, as...

    Try this. (reverse all the back slashes). And this assumes you aways have ALBUM ARTIST SORT filled in on every track.

    Re: Need Suggestions on Music Data Tag Reader

    hard to say. The file would be re-written, but the question is whether the program re-writing the file changes the file modification date. Many do, some do not. mp3tag has a setting (to tell it...

    that has nothing to do with the naming string. Folder.jpg wont be there unless you ripped a CD and it creates the artwork.

    no, doesn't matter in dbpoweramp. Just don't tick "use C2" in the ripper settings. Most of my drives don't use C2. The beauty of dbpoweramp secure ripping and AccurateRip, is that this really...

    Re: Need Suggestions on Music Data Tag Reader

    Maybe too simple for what you want to do, but if I was trying to find tracks in my library that were missing metadata (tag fields), I'd simply open my 120,000 tracks into mp3tag. Then, I'd click on...

    No, the TEST CONVERSION or VERIFY INTEGRITY has nothing to do with confirming "sound quality" or whether any tags are missing. These functions simply determine that the digital file is not corrupt...

    The box set string I gave you is super simple. It only deals with MULTIDISK CDs, and doesn't put them in an ARTIST or ALBUM artist folder. It simply puts all those disks in a folder called "Box Sets"...

    Re: Beginner question on dynamic naming

    I put something in the album tag field for anything other than the original CD. For example:

    ALBUM: Revolver
    ALBUM: Revolver (2009 Stereo)
    ALBUM: Revolver (2009 Mono)

    So my initial album...

    I have no idea about the static. dbpoweramp conversions, adding RG tags, etc. should not add any static to the tracks. Have you listened to the tracks on different players? Maybe your player is...

    Re: Beginner question on dynamic naming

    My naming string also puts multidisk albums into separate subfolders. I also like the ability to have different "cover.jpg" files into each folder, so each disk can have different album art.

    John, this box naming string should be a separate naming string. And then be sure to save the profile in which you are using the string under a different ripping profile. In fact go ahead and...

    Re: ReplayGain (Track gain) for dummies (ME!!!)

    1. If a track has a RG value of -6.2db, then it would have a 95.2db loudness. So to get it to a target volume of 89db, you need to reduce the volume by 6.2db. Roughly speaking, that's what the RG...

    If you want to make all the tracks have approximately the same loudness, I woudn't use a fixed Replay Gain value (-6.6 or -7.5). Instead, I would run all the tracks through ReplayGain and have it...

    If your metadata info is correct as you report it, then this is an Audivarna issue, not a ripping or naming issue.
