    PerfectTUNES for Mac, R3.2 beta

    Current version: beta 6

    Download:
    https://www.dbpoweramp.com/beta/PT-R32b6.dmg

    Changes since R3.1:
    • Greatly improved keyboard accessibility of the whole application.
    • Various visual updates, made various tables/lists more consistent with Mac UI conventions, replaced in-table buttons with plus minus buttons next to the table.
    • Reworked DMG appearnce.
    • AccurateRip: Fixed search box being initially disabled until a change of view.


    Changes in beta 2:
    • Fixed regressions/glitches in ID Tags.


    Changes in beta 3:
    • Fixed more regressions/glitches in ID Tags.
    • Removed the toggle for WAV tagging character set. Unicode is always used. The old default value prevented Unicode text from being written.


    Changes in beta 4:
    • Apple Lossless decoding overflow fix.
    • Enabled decoding of WavPack files with DSD.


    Changes in beta 5:
    • Edit ID Tags: Removed cycling of edited fields by left/right cursors. Cycling with tab & shift+tab still works.


    Changes in beta 6:
    • Bumped beta timeout.
    • Improved matching of Artist vs Album Artist vs Composer in Recommendations.

    Feature Request

    From observation it would appear that inconsistencies, comparisons, and recommendations are constrained to each field type. Meaning if I had an artist and an album artist that were inconsistent it would not be flagged because they are in two different fields. Can you confirm my observation is correct and if so suggestion to allow the comparisons to span the fields that PerfectTUNES currently supports. My rationale is often artists can be found in Artists, Album Artists and Composers.

    Let me know if not clear and thanks for considering.

    Hi,

    I notice beta 5 stays "Expires 12/2022" which has now passed but seems to still work. FYI not sure of release cycle for 3.2 or beta 6.

    Kind regards

    Fixed timeout. Also implemented the suggestion to combine Artist / Album Artist / Composer, thanks for the idea.

    Thanks Peter.

    From a PerfectTUNES perspective with beta 5 (and before) I was "clean" in Artists, Album Artists, Composer etc when choosing recommended. With beta 6 and the new implementation found several inconsistencies that I figured existed but many times differences are hard to spot visually. My library is close to 120,000 files. So thank you for implementing the suggestion!

    Two items to add:

    1) I think there is a slight regression in beta 6 where the main window no longer remembers it size/location on screen. The sub windows still seem to remember their size/locations. I purged the config .plist and let it get re-created and didn't seem to make a difference. This is cosmetic only and no impact on operation.

    2) After cleaning up inconsistencies I needed to review some of them manually in an editor before accepting as the suggested value visually looked identical to the original value. In one case a name of a composer actually had an extra space after name and in artists/album artists it did not. You can't tell this looking at the results screen. My suggestion is to code the differences in the recommended value in a color so it clear what is the difference and using something to show that a space might exist if that is the difference.

    Thank you very much for continuing to evolve the application.

    Peter and Illustrate team,

    I am not sure if this is a regression with 3.2 betas in general or has always been this way and I had not noticed. In the Album covers view multiple albums are combined into one item even though they are different folders with different album names to distinguish. I am including screen shots of a Mile Davis album where you can see the two redbook versions in the accuracy test while in the album cover section three versions are combined into one view. Each album has a different cover representing that edition.

    For some reason can't seem to attach the images in the forum editor. Can email them upon request.
