    "Rip as One" and alternative metadata sources

    I am interested in ripping a large collection of non-commercial discs using dBpoweramp and two acronova Nimbies. They are hour-long recordings that are segmented for previewing purposes, but I am interested in having the recording ripped to a single file.

    Further, I have a tab-delimited text file of metadata to construct file names and directories. This metadata should be applied as a stack of CDs is ripped sequentially.

    1. Can "Rip as One" be incorporated as part of the Batch Ripper functionality? From what I can tell from the forum, it cannot. I would like to avoid slowing down throughput by trying to script concatenation of files after ripping the individual tracks.

    2. Is it be possible to read metadata from a source other than an online database? I see here you suggest tagging the file headers with a script, but I would like them to be named and mapped to the correct directory based on the values of my text document. I already have a separate script for embedding BWF headers.

    Many thanks in advance for your help. I realize these functions are already part of the MFDigital Ripstation suite.

    1. It cannot
    2. We have no provision for this.

    once files are ripped, mp3tag can import tag data from a CVS or excel file into the file tags. One can "map" things so that the tag fields end up properly assigned from the data file. I often use this for tagging live shows where I only have a text file or spreadsheet with track info. Note that mp3 will handle mp3, flac, and other codecs. You can get it here.

    If you look in the beta section of this forum, there is the Cue image format codec, that can be set to rip the disc as one file.

    Re: "Rip as One" and alternative metadata sources

    Many thanks for your helpful replies. I am approaching a solution for renaming sequentially ripped files. I would like to know if there is a way to create a tag that will display the letter name of the drive the disc was ripped from. My current naming schema looks like this:

    [tag]BatchID[]_[date]\_[tag]BatchDiscNumber[]_[date]_[time]

    I am running two drives, and my collection has no metadata. It would be helpful if I could add a tag in the file name that would give the drive letter from which the disc was ripped so that I can rename the files from a sequential inventory list with a script post-ripping. Is creating such a tag possible? I am open to other solutions as well.

    The source drive letter is not available to naming.

    You can set each ripper with a different path...
