    Question Re: Ripping Level Question (help?)

    Hi,

    At the moment, my 'Rip Method' is set to 'Burst'; but there are two other options. Is it OK as it is, please?

    (Please see screenshot.)

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Hi Oggy,

    Thanks, I will have a look for the 'ID Tag Processing DSP' - I have not seen it before.

    There is something called: "Smart Capitalized Tags". Do you not use this feature, please?

    (Please see screenshot.)

    Cheers,

    1 - Is the 'CRC' alpha-numeric code related to the check-sum, or is this completely different?

    2 - Are the numbers (69~70) after 'accurate' related to how many online results (found) AccurateRip has cross-referenced the (my) rip against?

    3 - Do you fill in anything in the 'Comment' field (I have left this verbatim empty).

    4 - If the ORIGINAL (LP) recording session was 1968, and the date showing for the (remastered) CD version is (in this case) '2002', then do you change this date back to that of the original recording (ie. 1968)?


    Many thanks in advance for any kind assistance offered here.

    Paul
    1) Basically, yes.

    2) Yes

    3) Occasionally. Usually the Remaster year, if there is more than one, because of 4)

    4) I would use 1968, in your example. This is because I'm trying to replicate how I would display LPs. Use whatever works best for you.

    You can choose between Smart Capitalize Tags, Capitalize All, or neither. I use Capitalize All, not Smart. Try it and see what you prefer, the main thing is to be consistent.

    Cheers Oggy,

    I will use the next check-box down then. It looks like it checks for any errors.

    Luckily I have only ripped three CDs so I can just re-do them again.

    Great,

    I will check it out in the morning. Will probably go along with what you have.

    Can all these settings be saved as a PROFILE, please?

    You may want to consider using 2 date tags. One populated with original release/recording date and one populated with the CD release date. FYI, I use Year to hold the original release/recording date and Release Date to hold the CD release date. Your choice of what the date tags contain, may be dependant on the server/player software you use.

    Hi mville,

    Thanks man.

    Do you actually type (include) the word 'remastered' alongside the year, please?

    Cheers,

    Paul

    No, I add 'Remaster' to the Album tag. An example would be:
    Album = Songs In The Key Of Life (2000 Remaster)
    Year = 1976-09-28
    Release Date = 2000-05-08

    Gotcha.

    Brilliant!

    Cheers.

    That is a neat solution for Year and Release Date.

    If I have just the one version of the CD, like the above mentioned, Songs In The Key Of Life (Note the use of Capitalize All!), I have:
    Album = Songs In The Key Of Life
    Comments = 2000 Remaster

    These are the sort of choices people make to personalise their library, and why you have different Metadata from different providers.

    Genre is an interesting choice for this album. too!

    The use of & or And probably needs some thought, to keep things consistent.

    PerfectTUNES, is a great program for tidying up tags. I try to get it right first time, BUT!

    The Rolling Stones
    Rolling Stones

    Is probably the Artist name with the least consistency throughout their releases!

    I wish I had written down a list of my "rules" for tagging, to help be consistent, but where my memory failed me, ID Tags and Mp3tag, do get some use!

    If you haven't already, I recommend setting a limited on your Album Art.

    I use:

    Maximum Pixel Size 1000 X 1000

    Maximum File Size 300KB

    This prevents the occasional massive file size from occurring, and keeps my files compatible with Sonos, which I believe doesn't display art above 320KB. I don't use Sonos, but it is good to keep your files as compatible, with as many players as possible.

    Regards,

    Oggy

    Hi Oggy,

    Judging by how excellent 'dBpa' is, I think I will purchase 'Perfect Tunes' also.

    Do you prefer '&' or 'and', and when changing it, do you change it in absolutely every single instance (eg. in Artist, Song, and Album names), please?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    UPDATE: just made purchase!

    Oggy,

    I have used your kind suggestion of writing 'Remaster - 2002' - in the 'comment' field; and '1968' as the actual album date (ie. original session).

    Oh, I set myself up for that! At least it wasn't The Rolling Stones / Rolling Stones!

    Simple answer. Who cares? Be consistent, and there is always PerfectTUNES, to resolve any discrepancies.

    I tend to tag as I remember my vinyl collection.

    Most Simon & Garfunkel albums use the &, so I use it on all Simon & Garfunkel.
    I've never seen any Siouxie And The Banshees, not use And, so...

    Most Rock 'n' Roll, use &

    Be consistent, and seriously, who really cares. I nearly always go with what it says on the back of the CD case. I have had a CD, when the back disagreed with the disc which disagreed with the booklet.

    I try and use the one that seems most obvious to me, so I'll do the same, next time.

    I'd much rather listen to music, I am now, than study the sleeve, but once you get used to ripping, you can correct a few obvious errors; they tend to be conveniently in red, in a minute.

    ABBA

    a-ha

    blink-182

    Your choice!!
