    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...

    Re: CD driver not on completely flat surface

    As one who struggled with Latin, then Spanish in High School (Hey, that's why I become an Inguneer!) (To this day, I remember only about a dozen words in Spanish, I can count to six.)I have always...
  3. 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: Metadata not found

    When that happens you should open the "manual metadata Review page (click on the red symbol of a paper tag at the top of the window) and see what was provided. Actually before that click on the...

    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...
  7. Re: Ripping Mission Accomplished (mostly) - Thanks to Spoon and Illustrate

    So many of us went down the same path. Back some years ago I bought an Ipod to listen to, commuting on the train when I was getting sick of listening to peoples' inane cellphone conversations. ...

    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...

    Re: Question about Re-Rip Process

    Hi,

    As Gary stated, the custom settings are accessed by all the multiple instances of dBpoweramp. There is a catch, if you have several profiles stored with let us say one as secure ripping and...

    Re: Question about Re-Rip Process

    If the result was an accurate rip, no matter how many frames were re-ripped, the end result is that the checksum was identical to the results other(s) got ripping the same track. The probability of...

    Re: Techniques to cope with bronzing?

    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...
  12. Re: Ability to Trim and Add specific number of samples in dBpoweramp

    Look at the DSP Codec "Add Silence". Looks to do what you want if set up the way you need.
  13. Re: ReplayGain LUFS Target Volume in CD Ripper, is not the same as in Batch Converter

  14. Re: ReplayGain LUFS Target Volume in CD Ripper, is not the same as in Batch Converter

    Why did you choose -23? Unless you are going to apply the resulting tags to change the actual LUFS levels of the stored files and then use the flies in professional digital audio equipment at a TV...
  15. First Ultra Secure pass doesn't change speed

  16. Re: With latest Windows Insider Preview CD Ripper has stopped working. Any ideas...

    That's why it is often better to let software updates "age" a bit. Software is kind of like cheese or wine. It tastes better after it has a chance to age.

    And there is some chance for beta...

    I used to use the multi-encoder, to FLAC and m4a, the m4a for portable devices. I now just rip to FLAC. Then I use TuneFusion to semi-automatically make the m4a's (I still run it manually not...

    Re: dBpa Converter forcing FLAC level 5

    Why do you want to change the compression level? FLAC is a lossless encoding, like Zip. No matter what level of compression you use, the playback is identical, the same as if it was a WAV file.

    Re: Stuck on Re-Rip in Rip Status

    If there are that many bad frames, something is wrong. That's like every frame on the track. Either the CD is really defective, or the drive offset was never set, or something. Kill the rip and try...

    Sticky: Re: CD Drive Accuracy 2019

    In order to use an internal drive externally, you may well need a SATA (or IDE if it is a really old drive) to USB converter and a power supply that will power the drive. The converters I purchased...

    Re: Offset's and Confidence

    The pressing offset is a manufacturing thing. When a CD sells a lot of copies or is re-released, a new master is made to "press" the CDs. There are likely to be minor differences in exactly where...
  25. Re: Some of my FLAC files wont play or can not be moved to another storage location.
