Hm, well thanks for doing some research into this. One further question: I rip all my cd's with Max into AIFF format which i then convert to 320 AAC within iTunes. Should these AAC files perform gapless playback correctly since they were converted within iTunes?

Max & new iTunes gapless abilities

So now that the new iPod can handle gapless playback, I was just wondering if tracks ripped from Max are compatible with the feature. I know many people who had tracks ripped from very old versions of iTunes had to re-reip in order to take advantage of the gapless feature (which has kind of rendered...

sorry still kinda confused...in that post you said: "The quality settings have no effect for Apple Lossless. The ability to adjust quality at all is probably an artifact of my inexperience with Core Audio and trying to treat all the codecs the same way. (Versus a specialized interface for each one.)...

Quality settings?

Do the quality settings preference (Maximum, Medium, etc) for 320 AAC files mean anything? Does having it on Maximum actually mean anything as to compared to Medium?

External CD-Drive--problem?

Hey am planning to use Max to rip all my CD's to lossless format--before I get started I should say that I am using an external CD/DVD reader/writer--this shouldn't be a problem, right?

Just to clarify, I did in fact end up converting all my ALAC's made with Max to iTunes ALAC's. Seems to work perfectly with the best of both worlds, the cdparanoia ripping capability of Max and the iPod functionality of the iTunes conversions...

You know, I think your idea of converting the ALAC file made from Max within iTunes might have done the trick. I haven't tested playing it on my iPod (nor did I the Max files, I simply read that they would cause trouble) but when you convert them within iTunes, the "Unknown" classification under the...

Final word on Apple Lossless / AIFF Question

Hey there, just discovered this program so thanks to all that have contributed to it. From reading the discussions here it seems that there is some error in the way this program converts to the Apple Lossless mode (i.e. crashing the ipod, files containing audio glitches, etc). Is this true in all ca...
