more Log thoughts...

Been doing some Max ripping today - must say I just love this app!
But I'm still frustrated by the limited Log output.
I ripped a CD with Max that was yielding errors when ripped with xACT.
Although the Max LOG shows the rip and encode were 'completed' there is nothing addressing if any problems were encountered.
Perhaps it would be possible to simply add an additional line to the current Log output that would address whether or not any errors were detected during the rip process.

Something as simple as:
Rip Started for Track XYZ
Rip Completed for Track XYZ
***No Errors Encountered for Track XYZ. (Errors Encountered for Track XYZ)
or ala xACT:
***Track XYZ recorded successfully (Track XYZ recorded with minor problems)
or:
***Rip Completed (100%) Track XYZ (Rip Completed (<100%) Track XYZ)
Encode Started for Track XYZ
Encode completed for Track XYZ

I know the LOG issue is not high on the priority list - but hopefully this suggestion will at least keep the issue alive.
Max is such a pleasure to use - I'd really like to be able to use it exclusively.

While it won't be until v9 this "issue" is being addressed.

http://trac.sbooth.org/Max/ticket/22

I feel relatively confident the result will be what we want. I am holding off ripping everything until then. Well, there have been a few I have done everything with Max but just as many I have still used xACT for the rip. But it is oh so sweet to use Max for the remainder of the tasks (usually at least to ALAC but often also to FLAC, if not AAC and MP3, too - all in one glorious fell swoop!).

Outstanding news!
Thanks for the update, Fuga.
And Big Thanks to you, Stephen! :D

This makes me super excited about version 0.9 and the new project sbooth is working on, whatever it's mysterious self may be...

I hope his new project doesn't prevent this log file update...

I too am holding out on a few rips until the new version is out ;)
