    dBpoweramp Batch Ripper

    Illustrate has made a decision to enter the automated / commercial CD Ripping business in a big way, we are to offer automated (batch ripping) free for all Reference users. Normally automated ripping programs can cost $$$$, Illustrates aggressive pricing will ensure market domination.

    Final Functionality

    An end-to-end solution will be offered, from automated uploading of ripped audio tracks to iPods and other digital players, to HTML and printed catalogues, album cover art, quad core CPU systems are fully utilized, encode to multi-formats at the same time. Meta data will be supplied from an intelligent system of 4 of the top providers.

    For the first time in this field a secure ripper is available for use (full C2 error support), also making use of the popular AccurateRip rip verification system, final users will see from the report if a file was ripped verified 100% without error.

    Re: dBpoweramp Batch Ripper

    Update to Alpha 5

    On the drive configuration page now a test button

    On the configuration page shows loading methods next to drives

    Added a configuration debug switch

    A 3rd line in defaulcmds.txt that is passed to the load.exe, etc, but is not seen by the user.

    Return of debug and error info from loaders (see the test for the filenamaes sent, written text in files has to be unicode)

    3 new loader switches (see documentation for loaders)

    After a load batch ripper will wait upto 30 seconds for the CD to initialize in the drive (before issuing a reject if --rejectifnodisc, or another load attempt)

    Re: dBpoweramp Batch Ripper

    Loader CLI Switches:

    (for those who wish to create their own loaders)

    Loaders are contained in the folder \dBpoweramp\BatchRipper\Loaders\[Loader Name]\

    Pre-Batch\Pre-Batch.exe Called once at beginning of batch rip
    Load\Load.exe Called for each load
    Reject\Reject.exe Called if CD needs to be rejected (cannot read, is data cd...), NB Unload would not be called
    UnLoad\UnLoad.exe Called to unload a cd normally
    Post-Batch\Post-Batch.exe Called once at the end of the batch

    Addition files in Loaders\[Loader Name]\[Method] folder:

    DefaultCmdLine.txt (saved as ascii)

    Line 1: first run default command line
    Line 2: help line displayed under command line
    Line 3: hidden command line (not show to user) which is always added to CLI

    NB if DefaultCmdLine.txt is not present, then user is not able to change or add command line


    Passed to loaders (all lower case):

    --drive="X" cd drive letter passed
    --logfile="X:\filename.tmp" requests any debugging details be written by loader to this temp file, should be saved as Unicode plain text
    --passerrorsback="x:\filename1.tmp" requests any errors from loader to this temp file, should be saved as Unicode plain text, if contains [cancel batch] (all lower case) then batch rip is ended

    --watchdog="120000" (for batch ripper: will end task the loader command if not finished after X milisecond time)
    --rejectifnodisc (for batch ripper: used on a load.exe if the load fails tells batch ripper to issue a reject, incase an unreadable cd was loaded)

    [and additional user typed, default or hidden command line]

    Re: dBpoweramp Batch Ripper

    Update to Alpha 6

    Split the loaders out into seperate installs.

    The drive configuration screen still assumes the escape key should be processed as an unconfigure drive command

    for debug, shows the process ID from loaders

    option to offer to change spindle is now drive specific!

    batch notes no longer limiting at 32KB

    Minicubis (and varieties) Pioneer DVR-111D usb unmounting fixed

    MFDigital

    I have just spoken to MFDigital, they have said:

    "We wish to only partner with single company, MFDigital do not want dBpoweramp to support MF Digital loaders"

    Now I am not their customer, but if I was I would complain, either that or purchase different robotic loaders.

    Re: dBpoweramp Batch Ripper

    As a test of the program I hooked up 6 cd drives, over x100 combined ripping speed:



    Now all the drives except the AOpen were limiting on the USB bus (the asus was firewire).

    Re: dBpoweramp Batch Ripper

    Update to Alpha 7

    if ripper disapears during batch, was not detected when new cd inserted

    shows the individual drive rip speed for each line (drive)

    quicker at quitting the loader thread (on end batch rip)

    hscroll on notes window

    bug fix: starting ripping on multi drives at same time could crash AMG

    PID on log, on same line as running

    works with latest R13 Music Converter and Multi-Encoder, can now recieve the multi filesnames used

    AMG Access limited to 400 lookups with existing dBpoweramp AMG License (for non-commercial)
