    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    For me purely personal preference, instead of going into a folder named Various Artists, it goes into one named Compilations, nothing else is changed. I altered it when I was mucking around with...

    I should have said some of us paupers! :)

    The fact that you use UAPP, I would take as read that the app is very good.

    As you've found out there are very few standards for supported tags on some software and players, which partially...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    Hi Supernaut,

    A quick follow up to some of your questions and an explanation as to why I use Sort tags.

    Back 40 years ago my LP collection was growing and it was taking longer to find a...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I started using Artist - Beatles, The and quickly decided I simply didn't like either Beatles, The or Beatles.

    The band name is The Beatles.

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I believe this is a very deliberate choice. There are folders A, B, C so Album Artist - Beatles, The / Bowie, David both go into the B folder, but the filename and Artist metadata read The Beatles /...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    Hi Supernaut,

    I totally agree with everything that Gary says above, but do use sort tags and some of the Genre tags that he no longer uses as they benefit me and my family.

    Mp3tag uses the upper case ARTIST SORT, even if you have used Artist Sort from dBpoweramp.

    Congratulations on completing ripping your collection and maintaining those stats - very interesting. I haven't kept an accurate record of the odd error whilst ripping my CDs, but would be surprised...
  11. Re: Sometimes the CD turns out all accurate despite some spots/smudges

    It is worth cleaning them first as the ripping time may be reduced and occasionally smudges will cause errors.
  12. Re: Track artists not showing properly in Cambridge Audio's StreamMagic app for Andro

    Unfortunately there are no real standards for which tags should be supported and it is very common for otherwise extremely competent players to be limited by the software and apps.

    Couldn't agree more Gary, and as a language lazy Brit I regularly find non-native English speakers' command of the language (Dat Ei is definitely included :thumbup::thumbup:) truly humbling.

    Re: Minor Cosmetic Bug With 17.1

    On the main page the box for Year is too small for the full date so the last digit, in this case the 3 from 2009 11 03 cannot be displayed unless you shift the date left. You then lose the first...

    Agree with Gary that there is no one right way of doing this.

    Re: Initial Caps on file names after ripping

    Yes you can set it up to work when you rip (encode) your CDs.

    Add ID Tag Processing - Manipulation - Capitalization. Then you have a choice of:

    All Lowercase
    All Uppercase
    Capitalize First...

    Re: Using EQ vs Gain

    As Gary has mentioned, ReplayGain only writes only a tag, leaving the file bit perfect - this is the one many of us use. I highly recommend you keep a bit perfect master file and backup - especially...

    Re: Tune Fusion with Carplay and file types

    I used batch converter to move FLAC files to USB sticks, embedding the art at a maximum of 600 x 600 KB and 250 file size. This works very well on my Pioneer car unit except for the track order...

    To display on the Pioneer, try embedding the cover art with a maximum pixel size 600 x 600 KB and maximum file size of 250.

    After experimenting, these are what I needed to do to get art to display...

    Thanks Spoon, pleased to see this in R17 Beta where it has already saved some time.

    Are there any plans to add this functionality to R16?

    Interesting to know Gary. All seems good with the Squeezebox Touch, but I probably had later firmware before trying level 8.
