    Re: Not converting "album artist" correctly

    You know what, scratch that. You've been more than helpful over a weekend.

    I think it's reasonable to assume that the fault lies with Tag Editor & it's creating an "ALBUMARTIST2" field as well as...

    Re: Not converting "album artist" correctly

    Okay, thanks.

    I've run those files through "Tag Editor" in order to make the "Album Artist" column say "LIBRARY".

    This means that Tag Editor is doing something different, because it's kept the...

    Re: Not converting "album artist" correctly

    Yeah, I can't. FLAC files are not a native file format on a Mac. Fortunately, I have plenty of apps that can handle them, play them & convert them but when I right click on one I don't get the "edit...

    Re: Not converting "album artist" correctly

    I have looked at the tags on a bunch of other albums & I can at least confirm that the "ALBUMARTIST2" filed does not appear on AIFF files that I've ripped myself from a CD using dBpa. This appears to...

    Not that I know of. The only place I can see "DSP" mentioned is in the ripping window. Where can I check to make sure I'm correctly answering your question, as there are no preferences or options in...

    Re: Not converting "album artist" correctly

    The "album artist" would be a cover-all to help things sort the way I like them in iTunes. I would use "Prince" for example, so that all the albums by Prince, Prince & The Revolution, Prince & The...

    Hi all.

    So, having used dBpa's batch converter for months without issue, suddenly I'm finding the following...

    Initial Caps on file names after ripping

    Hi all.

    I keep forgetting to go into the album details before I rip it & select "capitalise tags".

    Is there an automated way to do this after the album is ripped?

    Re: A little help converting FLAC files, please.

    Actually, it's just this one Yes bootleg. And when I downloaded it from a separate source, it had the same silences at the beginning & ends of all the tracks. Then, when I tried to edit the tracks,...

    Re: A little help converting FLAC files, please.

    Okay, so xACT converted the files to AIFF & they still play back with gaps in iTunes, which pretty much settles it.

    Looks like it's a proper editing job over the weekend, to remove the gaps &...

    Re: A little help converting FLAC files, please.

    Well, FLAC files aren't native to the Mac, so it's a little tricky to find something that'll play them.

    I can play them on my VLC player & no, they don't play back gapless, but I don't really...

    I have a 4 disc Yes bootleg that's come to me as FLAC files.

  22. Why does batch converter no longer remember the previous location?

    I always rip to the same folder & batch converter used to always open with the folders already opened to that location.
