Re: Max Shuts Down When trying to convert shn folder

Reviving a very old thread to say: Hmmm, I was just converting from SHN to FLAC, and I get consistent crashes when I try to convert more than one SHN file consecutively -- even with the workaround I mentioned several years ago (!), i.e. setting the encoder to only work on 1 file at once. Would a cra...

Re: why does this all seem so complicated and difficult?

I'm guessing that you may not have used the program Script Editor to save the document you created? Try copying and pasting the script into a new Script Editor document, and save it under a more distinctive name (mine's called "iTunes metadata to Max"). Your script should start with the line: tell a...

Re: why does this all seem so complicated and difficult?

bnation, have you tried the Applescript that copies metadata from iTunes to Max? It really does work very well.

Re: Join Files - Does It Work?

I would really like to see this feature implemented, as it can be a huge timesaver in certain instances.

Also, based on his mention of a momentarily flashing message, I'm wondering if the OP is seeing the same nasty bug that I've been encountering?

Re: Max giving me an error...

Still having sporadic problems with this one -- any word, one way or the other? I've got a batch of files today that I'd like to transcode and conjoin, and I've tried SHN > WAV, SHN > AIFF, WAV > AIFF, but I've gotten the same error in every instance. EDIT: Well, I just read that the join function d...

Any word on this one? The trac ticket (from last June) is here.

Re: How to make file names -> title ?

D'oh! My apologies for overlooking that -- thanks for pointing it out. It certainly sounds like that should do the trick -- once you've got an MP3 with the right filename, it's easy enough to generate a title tag.

Re: How to make file names -> title ?

Hmm, I'm having the same problem. Using Tag will work for incoming filetypes like FLAC that support metadata, but not for those that don't. It sounds like there's no way to tell Max to use the incoming filename as the default title/filename for the converted file, and this is a real problem. For exa...

Re: Max Shuts Down When trying to convert shn folder

I'm having the same issue as the original poster, but there appears to be a very easy workaround: in the prefs, just set the maximum # of encoders to 1. Problem solved, so far (knock on wood). I'm guessing that'll give the OP what he needs, since it sounds like he was manually adding one file at a t...

Re: Feature request: limiting the speed of the CDROM drive

Bobson, give Discrotate a try. Someone on the Cog forums was kind enough to point it out, and though it didn't solve all my ripping issues (unfortunately), it did slow my CDROM drive down exactly as advertised.

Re: bug with omitted sound when splitting from ape/cue

What's the best way for me to acquire a build with this bug fixed? I just got bitten by it, though I'm not too dismayed because prior to today I didn't even know that Max supported cue sheets (oops!). Still, I'd like to not lose the ends of my transcoded songs, so...

Re: Pull tags from a .txt file

There's an Applescript that can do this in iTunes:

http://dougscripts.com/itunes/itinfo/importfromtext.php

I've used it, and it worked nicely. With the appropriate changes, could this work in Max and/or Tag?

Re: Max giving me an error...

I'm getting a similar error with Max 0.8.1 when I try to convert WAV files to MP3 via the "Convert files..." menu option. I've tried to do this several times now, and on every occasion I get the result: An error occurred while converting the file x.wav: *** [NSCFDictionary lastPathComponent): select...
