Re: Artwork with troubles!

Agreed. I suspect Amazon changed something here.

Best Practice for Cover Art?

Hi All: I tried to search for answers to this question, but my search terms are apparently too common. Anyone have any suggestions for best practices for cover art? I have had, at best, mixed results with embedded art. I tried cover.tiff, cover.jpg, AlbumName.tiff, AlbumName.jpg, and each seems to f...

Re: Max and Lion are just not working for me

I am not sure I would go that far. Max is perfectly fine for ripping to FLAC. I don't use it that away, but I just tried it very quickly, and it didn't take significantly longer to rip to FLAC than to AIFF. I am not posting to diss XLD, but I have never been happy with it. It does offer that ability...

Re: Best settings/preferences for highest quaity

Resuscitating this old thread. I would love to get some input on this as well. I had set my AIFF to 24-bit BigEndian, which, dozens of discs later, appears to have been a big mistake. Ironically, the tracks all play in iTunes just fine, but won't play through my PerfectWave DAC/Bridge. So, forgettin...

Re: Lion

I know I am late to this thread, but I am an Appleseed tester, running Lion 10.7.2 right now, and Max 0.9.1, with no problems other than some of the typical ones related to MusicBrainz interface.

Re: Many CDs failing with Rip - fine with Max

I've recently embarked on a project to re-rip all of my 940-strong CD collection. Having used Max before, I came across Rip and felt that I should use it instead as it seems to be the preferred ripper these days. <SNIP> As someone who has begun using Max in earnest to re-rip several thousand discs,...

Re: Multi-CD sets only match CD1

First post. Appreciate the work. I am also re-ripping my entire collection using Max, and of course, I ran into the MusicBrainz Disc 2 problem as well. I had previously used iTunes, starting out ALAC, and then AIFF. I have found that Max makes better (read "truly bit perfect") rips, and it makes a d...
