Re: Max produces duplicates en masse

Q1: 01 - Black Night.flac (from Deep Purple in Japan CD2 "The Encores") Q2: (s there more than one file with that name or metadata in the source?) I'm not completely certain what you are lookin for here. Max produces duplicates of ALL files in a vast number of folders residing in a folder I have nam...

Re: Max produces duplicates en masse

It'd be nice to get an answer to what's happening here. I will forward all details you might need. This aint the first time this happens I'd say it has been frequent. The folders are liitered with duplicates all with the mentioned naming scheme.

Max produces duplicates en masse

I have converted FLACs into ALACs and I get loads of duplicates only the duplicate with the ending 1.m4a. Most irritating and tricky to sort out since there in fact are file-names with that ending (esp in classic music), but try to find them among 3K files...

Re: Editing a tag format

This is another example of what I have pointed out in a previous post. I struggled long and hard to change the script in "output file naming" to have my files ending up like they are labeled in the original flac-files (I'm converting flacs to alacs for ipod use) for ex "01 - Eminem - Loose yourself"...

can't load folders

Max 0.8. I want to convert flac to alac. On an earlier occasion I could load a batch of folders (folder:artist/flac:track-title) but now I can't do this anymore; Open-button is dimmed and wont be accessible unless I select the files (flacs) themselves. I have tried deleting pref-file, restart etc bu...

UI quirks

I have not used Tag (or Max for that sake) very much but I'd thought I'd share some opinions on the UI. And I think I'd better do it before my initial impressions become corrupted. 1) Main wIndow has no red "shut window"-button. Annoying. To shut it you have to quit app. 2) Too many actions in both ...

Re: Dazed & Confused about Apple Lossless

more searching after a nights rest and I have it sorted out, for ex: http://sbooth.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1015
(The 2 mpeg 4 alternatives are a bit confusing, maybe some xtra work here would eliminate dumb qs like mine?)

Dazed & Confused about Apple Lossless

I'v searched hi & lo to sort things out about ALAC and get going to convert and replicate my large flac archive (thoroughly tagged for use with my Slimserver) to ALAC to conveniently have a duplicate archive suited to tank up my ipods. But among Max output options I see no "ALAC" or "Apple Lossless"...
