  1. Re: 2nd attempt at ripping a CD got fast Accurate rip after 1st try had frames to re-

    yes, all is ok with those rips that got AR matches. Happens occasionally with me as well. Sometimes I wipe the CD after ejecting and starting over, but sometime very small things can be an issue and...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    But to be clear, dbpa did NOT decode the SACD to 24 bit. dbpa did not extract the SACD layer. It decoded the regular CD layer (that is also contained on the SACD physical disk) to HDCD. This "CD...

    Re: Year Before Album

    there is no best option. any FLAC compression is perfectly OK. I'd use either 8 or 5.

    Re: Year Before Album

    In my personal opinion, this option is silly. But at least those that believe WAV files sound better than FLAC (of course they never do this in a real double blind test) can use FLAC and get the...

    Re: Year Before Album

    @schmidj, Thanks. Very informative as usual!
  8. Re: Mass Removing Leading and Trailing Whitespaces From a Tag Field

    I can't recall whether the app supports loving. It does support rating. But I don't use either function. Also, keep in mind that replaygain/soundcheck, etc. is not perfect. It works very well for...
  9. Re: Mass Removing Leading and Trailing Whitespaces From a Tag Field

    leading white space sounded odd, but then I checked some of my mp3 files. The iTunNorm field also has a leading white space. And these iTunNorm values weren't created by dbpa. They were created by...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    no clue what happened there. I don't use HDCD DSP, even on my HDCDs (because I want a bit perfect rip, and ripping via the DSP you no longer have a bit perfect rip). I could later convert my rips to...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    Unlikely as one would have to have an old sony playstation with correct firmware to even try to do it. The makers of SACD disks do NOT want them ripped.

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    Depends on how you define success. All you did was rip a 16/44.1 file to 24bit. That's basically meaningless (just a larger size file containing the same audio info).
  14. Re: Mass Removing Leading and Trailing Whitespaces From a Tag Field

    That's it: Soundcheck. I use foobar2000 MOBILE app on my iphone/ipad as a player (it can use the RG tags). Then I can load up files (even FLAC files) on these devises using TuneFusion (another...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    SACD is not the same as HDCD. Some (most?) SACD CDs have a redbook (16/44.1) layer that can be ripped just like a CD, but you're not ripping the SACD layer. The HDCD DSP has nothing to do with...
  16. Re: Batch transcoding maintaining same file structure

    When the music converter popup box opens up, where you tell it the format you want to convert to, there is an "Output To" box in that popup screen, and you enter the naming info there.
  17. Re: Mass Removing Leading and Trailing Whitespaces From a Tag Field

    those settings are good. Mine is set at maximum of 25db as well. That must be the default. Keep in mind that iTunes and iPhones/iPads don't use the replaygain track or album tags in playback. But...
  18. Re: Mass Removing Leading and Trailing Whitespaces From a Tag Field

    Where are you seeing a setting for "Maximum Gain" in the ReplayGain settings? There is no need to "manipulate" replaygain. Simply use the ReplayGain DSP in ripping or converting, and set it to add...

    Re: Flac uncompressed question

    thanks for the explanation. You'd really have to know what your DAC is doing, otherwise you're doing multiple conversions of the same file.

    Re: Flac uncompressed question

    Why would you want to convert a 16/44.1 ripped file to 24/96? You can't magically change a redbook CD into a high-res file. And why to 16/48? I have a hard time understanding what you are trying to...
  23. Re: dBpoweramp sound distortion on ripped track but not with 'Windows Media Player'?

    If you get distortion in one player but not another, playing the same file, the problem can't be in the file itself. It is something in playback settings of the player.

    Re: inaccurate but secure (track *9)

    Nothing to worry about. The fact that it had to rerip some frames is OK because it eventually became "secure" (matching your ripper re-tries). Even if "inaccurate" result (rather than secure) it...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    why are you using HDCD DSP *and* the bit depth change. If it is a HDCD cd, the HDCD DSP will change the bit depth. So why both? No reason to change the bit depth of a regular 16/44.1 CD.
