    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I know several people use the alphabetical folders (subfolders for A, B, etc.). I don't, even though I have a good size library (as of today, 115,659 tracks, 8,245 Albums). Frankly, I'm rarely...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I have a top level "Music" folder. Then underneath I have two folders: FLAC and LOSSY. Within each of those two folders I have folder for ARTIST (or ALBUM ARTIST), then underneath that I have a...

    Re: prevent AccurateRip submission

    I wouldn't worry about it. Nobody else's will match to these bad rips.

    Re: Can't read SHM-SACD to rip to DSD64

    I would actually say NONE whatsoever. (unless you have some sort of very specialized DAC that only works well with upconverted files.....but this is very unlikely).

    I easily transfer my music, including FLAC files if I want, to my iPhone and iPad using TuneFusion (a dbpa companion product) and running foobar2000 mobile on my iPhone and iPad. iTunes not needed at...

    I've seen other people posting on not seeing the album art in their Mac file browser. Sorry, I don't use Macs and this is definitely some sort of subtle Mac issue, likely caused by some of the Mac...

    Yep, that's very important for me (as that tells dbpa what folder to put that album in, and also includes the track artist name in the file name for those "compilation" CDs.

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    The reason I use "Compilations" vs "Various Artists". I *think* this got me on that path, but it's been a long time, so the details are blurry. I use a Squeezebox Players/LMS Server ecosystem for...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    Another vote for foobar2000 as a player on your PC. I've never heard of the player you're using, but foobar2000 is pretty popular and infinitely flexible. I use it myself for my PC player. I also...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    Agree. I wouldn't want "Beatles, The" in the artist or album artist tag. But I would think the "Beatles, The" is just used in sort tag and not in artist or album artist tag, where the player display...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    Yep, I understand using "Beatles, The" as a sort name and use of that sort name in creating an artist folder (so "Beatles, The" shows up under "B" folders when sorting or browsing by folder). It's...

    Your choice. I'd do the opposite as default. Nothing would bother me more than seeing the artist reported in my player display as "Beatles" rather than "The Beatles" or "Doors" rather than "The...

    Seems odd. I'd use "Beatles, The" for both Artist Sort and AlbumArtist Sort.

    Re: cdripper not reading cdplayer.ini

    Re: Can I do this?

    Yes, in your Convert step to FLAC, use the "Delete Source File" DSP. This will delete the original file after the conversion.
