    Try specifying the full path for foo.m4a and enclose in quotes.

    Thanks, that worked (although no quotes required). I was confused because the conversion worked but the tagging didn't.

    For the record, all relative paths fail (./foo, ../../foo, etc.) Hopefully that will get fixed before release.

    I have a few questions left before this thing gets finished and released. But I'd rather ask one at a time.

    How is the FLAC/iTunes thing going? Is Apple persuaded?

    No. And my prediction is that Apple/itunes will NEVER use FLAC. Then again, as a long time iTunes user, I switched to Foobar2000 and never looked back..... itunes has become bloated program that is not audio-centric.

    Hi,

    Being just a Mac user I'm delighted to hear dBpoweramp is coming to OS X.

    Any idea when it will be realised out of beta?

    Thanks

    Another question. Is there a Foobar2000 for Macs?

    I am asking because iTunes sounds better than any of the other players I tried (with the exception of QuickTime). I want a player that can allow for:
    1) creation of 100+ playlists
    2) adjusting the playback volume (in case of overly loud or quiet tracks)
    3) distinguishing between music and podcasts
    4) superb sound reproduction.

    Not sure if you've tried VOX player yet, but it's pretty awesome for the mac. Not sure if it meets all your requirements though, but can play any file type basically.

    I did, and it sounds terrible. It does not even switch between tracks seamlessly (there are cracks when that happens). It cannot have more than one playlist (not imported from iTunes), and I cannot control the default playback volume.

    Seriously, the only thing I don't like about iTunes is that it doesn't play FLAC. And speaking of that terrible problem,
    http://xiph.org/flac/itunes.html

    Basically, if over 50% of all iTunes users send Apple this request, they will have to do it. Power in numbers!

    Just ripped Titan AE score CD (extremely rare limited edition thing) to ALAC, successfully. With a detailed log file.

    Problem.

    Instead of being ripped to the folder I created before (in Downloads), it got ripped to Documents, in a folder DBP created on its own, named

    [IVALUE]album artist,Graeme Revell,Graeme Revell[]


    The ripper and converter both work for me, but destination and folder naming are screwed up. The track naming works though. I put [track] [artist] - [title] and it worked. For example, a track name:
    11 Graeme Revell - The Weapons Specialist

    It seems that even with the latest version, the app refuses to work with certain CDs. It acknowledge by not asking for a CD anymore, but shows now track listing or anything as if the TOC had not been read. XLD reads these disks fine.

    Also it would be a nice feature if you could specify a discogs URL for filling in the metadata, in case the disc has not been entered to CDDB, Musicbrainz, etc.

    So far, I am very happy with what I see. The application looks very good and easy to use.

    Same issue here. In my first use, files were ripped under \user\ folder although I specified a different location.

    Cannot name my files with following pattern: [artist] -- [album] -- [title]

    I also noticed that there is no drop down for Genre?

    Year shows in the following format yyyy mm dd although set to only show yyyy.

    Hi,

    I found out about the beta for MacOS on the pono social web site. I'm running version 1.0 beta 6. It's nice to have something with the AccurateCD-type checking. I was particularly pleased when one track on one CD came up as "invalid" (or however it was marked), and after I cleaned off the CD and re-ripped it up came up as "accurate". That gives me a good feeling that it really is doing the job it's supposed to do.

    One minor bug: Slashes seem to be handled wrong, at least in the genre field. If the metadata for some album says that it is "Pop/Rock", and I rip the CD using dBpoweramp, and I then import it into iTunes, then the genre in iTunes shows up as "Pop\Rock". It looks like slashes are handled correctly in the Song-title field. I don't know about any other fields.

    It looks like "/" turns into "\" in some other fields too, such as group-name and composer.

    Also, if I click on the "Review Metadata" button and change some of the Song-title fields, they look as I want them to be in that "review" window. But after I click the "okay" button, my changes do not show up in the main CD-ripping window.
