Re: Apple lossless to AIFF changes bit rate and no art

once again, thanks for the prompt response. The problem with using iTunes is it has no option for converting 24 bit lossles files to 24 bit AIFF files, If you choose converting to AIFF everything ends up at 16 bits. I've purchsed some 24/96 FLAC files from HDtracks and used MAX to convert them to 24...

Re: Apple lossless to AIFF changes bit rate and no art

thanks for the prompt response.

so you don't know of anything that will do what I want, which is take a mixed bag of Apple lossless files, some 16/44.1 and some 24/96 and batch convert them all to AIFF retaining the bit and sample rates and tags? :(

Apple lossless to AIFF changes bit rate and no art

I have most of my music encoded with Apple lossless on my Mac and most of that music is good old redbook 16/44.1. However, some is 24/96 that I either purchased or digitized from vinyl. So I see some 1.5 Tbyte drives today for $229 at Best Buy and figure, I'll just go back to AIFF just in case there...

Re: max converts flac to apple lossless then file disappears

They were 24/96 FLAC files from http://www.archive.org/details/radams20 ... sbd.flac24

There are 27 files and the first 4 wouldn't report the metadata when I tied to convert,

I deleted them and downloaded again and when I put the metadata in the second time it took

I guess that is it

I added data while in PLAY and now when I convert they show up, however, in the source directory, not the one I told it it to in output preferences. I also have 4 files that evidently have metadata because it shows up in PLAY but when I choose the same file in MAX to convert the metadata isn't there...

max converts flac to apple lossless then file disappears

I am using max 0.8b and leopard. I tell it to convert a 24/96 flac file to Apple Lossless, I can see that the file is being created in the specified directory, and then when it is done and closes the encoder, everything it created disappears.

I was wrong

I was wrong, it took a little over 5 days to re-encode all of my files.

I made a decision

Thanks to everyone for their input. I decided to convert the files with iTunes. I have a total of about 2000 CDs ripped, about half with Max and the rest with iTunes. They are mixed up in about 700 Gig across three 300 gig hard drives so it was very hard to just pick out which were done with Max and...

thanks for the info

Is "pathtotrack" just the path to the directory where the files exist, or does this command need to be run and include the file name for each and every track? With over 1000 CDs and probably 10,000 tracks I can't type in the command line for every track.

Thanks

this is a real kick in the kahoenies

I just tried to set up my home network the past few days to share my iTunes Apple Lossless files around my house and couldn't figure out why the songs wouldn't play. Now I find out why. :( Has anybody figured out how to do this without re-ripping the 1000 CDs I've already done other than using iTune...

It looks like nothing happened but if you look at the top of the screen you will see that the MAX menu is available.

Yes, it sometimes reverts back to encoding in mp3 and I have never chosen that option. It also unchecks the boxes to eject the disc and to add encoded files to the iTunes library.

WARNING ........MAX loses settings when it crashes

Every once in awhile Max will crash. It always does if I don't pay attention and insert a CD with a data or video file on it. This has been discussed previously. It also sometimes does it for no apparent reason. If I rip 40 or 50 CDs in a day it seems it always does it at least a couple of times. I ...

some discs lock up my Mac Mini

I have a number of discs that have a final track that MAX says is data. I assume it has some multimedia stuff or somthing that can be interpreted by a computer rather than a CD player. In any case when MAX encounters these tracks while ripping it locks up the Mini. I can't force it to quit MAX or my...
