    Re: New user - question re profiles

    I find that certain make drives are better than others with specific issues. I have some SH-224 (Samsung and others) that routinely read somewhat scratched discs much better than others, no or few...
  2. Re: Software for playing flac filds with wsindows 64-bit

    I use Foobar, but not usually with Asset, although I have on occasion.

    Foobar has a bit of a setup learning/configuration curve, but other than that issue, works well.

    I've run into an issue...

    Re: Custom Naming

    Semicolons to separate in dBpa, but if you edit your tags using mp3tag, it uses the double backslash. Different codecs use different ways of dealing with multiple value entries (if they deal with it...

    Re: Custom Naming

    If your database and codec support multiple genres well, consider tagging with both Rock and Punk (or whatever. That way if you want rock, including the punk, filter for rock. If you want only punk...

    Re: Custom Naming

    Well, I cut down on the number of genres I use, but more recently have been using multiple genres in some cases. They work well in FLAC. Three cases, African music, tagged now as African, but also...

    Re: Older version of DBPoweramp

    Gary and Atulgarg:

    I'm suspicious the issue isn't reading the CDs but is obtaining the tag data, due to the discontinuance, changes in the old tag metadata sources. Typically, he may see the...

    Re: Asset on QNAP stops working after a time. (Solved)

    My fairly old (8 years or so) QNAP pretty much comes to a halt when using the QNAP backup app to back up the drives to an external USB drive. It takes forever to save files from dBpoweramp, or for...

    Re: Custom Naming

    I've saved my naming strings and other settings as a text file, so I have them in the event I need to reinstall. Very useful when I switch to a newer computer.

    Re: Custom Naming

    For a better understanding of the string editing language used here to make the filenames, look in the dBpoweramp help file for custom naming. If you've installed the software on your C drive and...

    Not clear from your description, you are using a SATA to USB adapter? It is possible some won't work properly, although I've used several different models over the years without difficulty. I can't...

    Re: How do I edit ID tags?

    If your player uses tags, not file and directory names (like most) to select the tracks to play, you don't have to bother to change the file or directory names. It makes no difference what they are,...
  17. Re: Questions About Adding and Removing ReplayGain from Song Files

    Yes basically. However if the replay gain settings are messed up, no reason to clear the tags, just run the replay gain DSP in batch converter (once you solve your access problem) again, it will...
  18. Re: Questions About Adding and Removing ReplayGain from Song Files

    Make sure you are opening the batch converter, not the music converter. There should be a list of all your mapped drives/directories by drive letter (and a few other locations.) Before each one...

    Re: Rip & Write ReplayGain

    From previous posts answered by Spoon, I recall the replay gain apply DSP applies the replay gains already in the tags, not new ones. Therefore you'd run the convert twice, first to create the tags,...

  23. Re: Variations in mastering? CD ripping a flawed process?

    The issues would appear to be in the digital players. I've never experimented with recording the output when you push "play". If you don't want some form of clicks, the player would need to fade in...
