    Re: Forcing a flac re-encode

    By far the easiest way (if you have foobar 2000) is to select all the files and right-click Utilities and then Optimize file layout.

    You can even save more space by using Optimize file layout +...

    Re: Question re dBpoweramp setup

    If you have been using the same drive for EAC successfully, then I would say it is likely to be a scratched or damaged CD, as that is too many frames to attempt to re-rip under normal circumstances....
  3. Re: 2 Questions about CD Ripper - De-emphasis ticked option and Cross-pressing verif.

    That is strange. Does your drive not support C2, as I see it disabled in the log?

    My understanding is you would not get these multiple passes if C2 is enabled as errors would be identified via the...

    Re: Configuring AccurateRip question

    Yes that is the confidence rating, where 200 is the highest / max reported number. However, even a confidence rating of 1 or 2 is fine and you will find on those more obscure CDs and pressings. Are...

    Re: Configuring AccurateRip question

    It sounds like AccurateRip is all setup correctly. Just rip a CD from your collection and if AccurateRip reports success on all the tracks you are good to go. I believe an offset of +6 is very common...

    Re: CD ripper changing size of album art

    Use Mp3tag if you want to store the original high quality album art untouched - simple drag-and-drop operation.

    Re: External CD/DVD Drive 2021

    External drives are fine and them not being as good as internal drives is a bit of a misnomer. Clearly early CD ripping tools were designed to work on traditional IDE / SCSI interfaces and buses, but...
  8. Re: 2 Questions about CD Ripper - De-emphasis ticked option and Cross-pressing verif.

    OK so on a quick look I found two logs that exhibit the same behaviour you describe on tracks 1 and 3.

    Re: Cover art change

    I would download and use Mp3tag. Drag the folder containing the music files for the one CD into Mp3tag and then on the left of the screen is a box for album art. Highlight all the tracks and then...
  10. Re: 2 Questions about CD Ripper - De-emphasis ticked option and Cross-pressing verif.

    Yes, I do not have a pre-emphasis CD to check, but it is worth adding the Track Technical column in CD Ripper and you will see this information pre-rip. Regardless, the log file will still contain...
  11. Re: 2 Questions about CD Ripper - De-emphasis ticked option and Cross-pressing verif.

    I asked this a while back and the log file will reflect any de-emphasis - see quote from Spoon below.



    The log file will also reflect HDCD - take a look at the extract below from a recent CD I...

    Benefit Of Hindsight (Maybe)

    I starting re-ripping my whole collection again since February 2020 and I am still going. Previous rips were done using .WMA Lossless in Windows Media Player over the last decade.

    Re: AccurateRip database update

    I have checked some more logs (recent) and found CDs I ripped that have gone from a confidence of 1 to 2 so that's good.

    However, some have remained the same which is what prompted my original...

    Re: AccurateRip database update

    Just wondering does the update take a very long time given the size of the database?

    I am asking as I have submitted a number of entries in the last few months and was using the PerfectTunes...
  15. Re: Questions about dBpoweramp - How to get stuff same fashion as EAC?

    That is correct. A while back I compared production of a .CUE file with a few CDs with dBpoweramp vs. EAC and the results were quite different with the EAC .CUE containing more information and being...
  16. Re: Questions about dBpoweramp - How to get stuff same fashion as EAC?

    If you want them, I would still use EAC for generating non-compliant .CUE files. This will enable an exact replica of the original CD to be burnt if needed. dBpoweramp will not produce the equivalent...

    X AR (6) Y Secure

    Given this happened on every single track...

    Encoding Settings Tag Application Name

    Hi.

    On new rips I produce, the Encoder Settings tag is missing the application name.

    So I am getting:

    Re: Uncompressed Wave, Log shows different

    You might be able to edit a setting or export settings from the registery to elimate the MP3 bit.

    Mp3tag is the best option for this kind of work. I found almost all the answers I needed on scripting and shortcuts in the forum through posts by DevletD and dano.

  22. Re: How to add "Label" and "Copyright" field at the top of the CD Ripper UI

    You can add additional fields very quickly with PerfectTUNES or Mp3tag. I use the latter for almost all tagging purposes due to macros and other automation.

    Personally, I see CD Ripper as 'just'...

    Album Artist is the most important one for most players in my opinion.

    For example, if your listening to a soundtrack, I would want Album Artist as 'Various', and then then use the Artist tag to...
  24. Re: Feature Request: Pause between ripping tracks

    You could select to just rip one or two tracks at a time. In cases like this though, I prefer seek out another copy of the CD, or try a different drive.

    Re: Year/Date Tagging philosophies

    Personally, I would use just the year only as this will be more than sufficient - you will find it tricky to get an accurate day / month for more obscure releases and date formats differ a lot.
