    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    That's exactly the way I was doing it before. I primarily listen through my portable music player (although this may change in the future), and it doesn't recognise each individual artist when...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I'm really glad I asked about these settings, as I almost didn't. After saying I couldn't ever see myself using the [Custom] field, something came to mind that might actually make things simpler for...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I imagine you must also be able to change the name of the field from [Custom] to whatever you want it to be, and possibly create multiple custom fields, e.g., [Copyright], [Organization],...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    While we're on the subject, how does the [Custom] field work? It looks like something I'll never need to use and may as well be left unchecked.

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    Thanks for the advice, I didn't even know that was possible! As the tags will stay the same for the vast majority of my CDs, I'll probably just stick to unchecking the unwanted tags in settings and...

    Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    I know this really comes down to personal preference, but how do people prefer to deal with the unnecessary (unwanted) metadata that often appears when ripping? What I mean is, do you permanently...

    Re: Set-Up for Ripping

    Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd ask this question here. Is there a way to reset the metadata fields to default, or does anyone know what the default settings are?

    Thanks, garym. It all makes much more sense now!



    Thanks, mville. I don’t think it does, but interesting to know anyway!

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    So there isn’t really anything special about the data on an HDCD disc, the HDCD coding just allows the data to be upsampled from 16 bit to 20/24 bit (which isn’t possible with standard CDs). Is this...

    Re: Hdcd dsp

    Hello Garym. So far I have only enabled the HDCD DSP when I've been ripping discs which I know are HDCD encoded. That is, I deselect the HDCD DSP function when I'm ripping regular CDs, which make up...

    Well, I tried but it didn't work. Like you say, my software either lumped all the words together so I got something like "Rock Punk Anarcho-Punk" as one genre, or it just displayed the first word;...

    I only thought about including styles as a way to make choosing a genre easier. For example, is an album Heavy Metal or Thrash Metal? In this case I can just choose the genre as rock and put both...

    Re: Custom Naming

    I would like to keep genres as simple as possible. At the moment my list looks something like this:


    Blues
    Christmas
    Classical
    Country
    Electronic
    Folk
    Jazz

    I've been thinking about doing the same thing! Like you say, on a soundtrack where all the tracks are by the same artist, I would probably save that under the artist's name and not OST. As for...

    That's great advice, thank you. I also like to add as little as possible, but I think having [MFSL] or [DCC] in the album title actually looks quite good! I hadn't even thought about the MFSL covers...

    Do you have OST as the album artist for all soundtracks? That actually makes a lot of sense, especially if the soundtrack is a compilation.
