    AccurateRip... with clicks & pops?

    I just ripped a CD to FLAC, all tracks list as Accurate.

    When I listen (via Foobar2000 or VLC), I hear lots of little clicks and other artifacts. I then played the corresponding CD from the same...

    Re: Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    Brother, I share your OCD!

    (In fact, I suspect that most folks who find themselves here do too! ;)

    But I'm not going to buy new CDs for the ones that don't pass as Accurate. So, imho, when a...

    Re: Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    But if it is inaccurate in bother cases, why would somebody prefer an "inaccurate click" over an "inaccurate interpolation" -- it seems like if there's going to be an error, it may as well be subtle...

    Re: C2 off, "Secure" -- C2 on, "Insecure"

    A related follow-up question -- your intructions indicate different settings depending on whether the cd drive "supports C2 error pointers well" -- how can I know whether my drive supports C2 error...

    Re: Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    Thanks -- but if Interpolate hides the pops isn't that better than not hiding them?

    Also, with C2 on, I seem to get many"Insecure" tracks that otherwise show up as "Secure" with C2 off.

    C2 off, "Secure" -- C2 on, "Insecure"

    I'm having trouble understanding how to configure db to get optimally accurate rips, and also trouble understanding what the "rip status" (following a rip) means.

    For example, my drive seems to...

    Re: Album art (folder.jpg)

    Ah, I now see that in db I can choose 250x250, 200x200, 150x150, 120x120, and 75x75 -- via Meta > Settings > AMG

    (and, presumably, that actually means 250x{up to 250}, etc.)

    Re: Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    Sorry, two more settings:

    1) sample offset is +667 -- should I "reset to zero"?

    2) should I check "read into lead-in or lead-out"?

    thanks. :blush:

    Re: Album art (folder.jpg)

    Thanks -- this seems a bit odd to me.

    On the AMG site, the images are 200 wide, whereas via db I can only get 150 or 250, is that right?

    The issue is that some are missing, but it's a bit...

    Re: Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    Sorry to keep asking the same question, but what does a check next to Secure mean, vs. a plus? And what do all the numbers mean? (I just want to be sure I know how to read it when I'm ripping)

    Re: Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    But what if the second does the same?

    And some CDs won't be in Accurate -- when I see Secure with a check, that doesn't mean that I can trust it to be a solidly good rip?

    Also, I guess I don't...

    Album art (folder.jpg)

    Hi all, two questions about the folder.jpg files...

    1) they don't all seem to have the exact same pixel size -- all so far have been 150 wide, but the height varies (up to 150, but sometimes...

    Rip status -- Accurate, Secure, etc.

    Hi all, is there a good place to read up on what all the different "rip status" values mean?

    I've been trying some test rips, with varying results.

    For example, sometimes I get all Accurate,...
  14. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    Thanks -- I mostly expect to play FLACs via player apps (most likely VLC, with Foobar2000 coming in second) -- do you happen to know which tags those apps prefer with FLAC?

    When you say that some...
  15. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    Is one type "more compatible" than the other? For example, will player apps look for both kinds of tags for FLAC files?

    Likewise, if I want to later transcode the FLACs to MP3s, will that work...
  16. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    3 months from purchase to activate AMG, and then one year from purchase that AMG will work, yes?

    If that's right, one more (my apologies, as I thought that was the last)...

    I'll be ripping to...

    If I download your reference trial today, use it for a week, and decide to purchase a copy...

    I then have 3 months to activate AMG, or I have to change...
  18. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    Sorry, one more question (last, I hope!)...

    I read on the forum that if I need to reinstall, I lose AMG support, is that right? Do you have a page up that explains this?

    thanks, -Scott
  19. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    I'm sorry, I find this a bit confusing!

    Isn't 'powerpack' the lower priced version and 'reference' the higher priced version?

    If so, what does it mean if I get r12 reference and upgrade it to...
  20. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    Thanks -- if I get reference now, does that qualify me for dMC r13 when it becomes available?
  21. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    Sorry if I seem to be asking the same question, but I'm not sure that it has been answered -- if I get reference, do I get unlimited/non-expiring MP3 encoding?

    thanks, -Scott
  22. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    But if the reference trial lasts 3 weeks, then the AMG trial is effectively 3 weeks, no?

    In any case, ther reference purchase includes unlimited/non-expiring MP3 encoding, right? The only limited...
  23. Re: Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    To be sure I understand -- are you saying that the reference trial is 3 weeks for AMG and MP3? And if I purchase it, it's AMG for 1 year, and MP3 forever?
  24. Metadata options? MP3 encoding with 'reference'?

    Hi all,

    I gather db comes with a "one month trial" for AMG lookups (including db's 'reference' version) and that, beyond the first month, it then costs $5/year for AMG access, is that right?

  25. Re: The "Big Rip" -- what's the "smart" way to go?

    Hey Ney,

    What makes you think VLC would transcode FLAC to LAME?

    Also, I think you said earlier that you had Winamp working with M3Us of FLACs -- but that didn't seem to work for me if the FLACs...
