Decomposed Encoding of Meta Information

Hello, I've just noticed that Rip seems (in contrast to Max) use the decomposed form of unicode for the FLAC metatags. That seem to confuse some tools, for example metaflac comment[0]: TITLE=Konig der Narren should be "König". Is this by design? I don't know if the spec gives information on how to h...

Re: Settings for optimal CD archiving?

Thanks for your answers. May I dare to make a feature/change request. After each track ripped it's being indicated if it was successful and accurate in the corresponding line. Additionally there is a message after the entire rip saying it was successful. Both disappear after a couple of seconds. Sin...

Settings for optimal CD archiving?

Hello, I used to rip and archive my CDs to FLAC with Max but since Rip's concept promises more accurate results I plan to switch. Some questions: 1) To have pregaps handled correctly I need to use 'Detect Pregaps' prior to each ripping process? Is there way to have it done automatically? 2) Rip gene...

Change Genre of all titles of album

Hello,

I try to change the genre of all titles of an album (as I always set the genre on a per album base). How can I do that? I didn't find an option to do that.

Thanks,

Problem ripping first track of one CD

Hello, I'm trying to rip The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band but Max does not seem to like to first (title) track. I select all tracks and press Encode. All tracks are listed in the encoder window with the first track frozen at 0% and a constant estimated time. The CD drive keeps spi...

id3: Frame for CD set

Hello, this question is a bit offtopic since it has nothing to do with Max. I hope you forgive me. As you may have guessed from my previous posting I convert all my CDs to FLAC for archiving and from FLAC to MP3 for listening. For the flac -> mp3 conversion I have my own small python script making u...

Re: Best way to archive CDs

Thanks for your posting!

When I've started archiving I've embedded no cue sheet. What are the negative effects of a missing cue sheet?

Best way to archive CDs

Hello,

I'm currently in the process of ripping all my CDs as FLAC for archiving. What are the optimal settings for Max for this purpose? Currently I use FLAC with standard settings and create a CUE sheet. I'm using the cdparanoia ripper.

Anything to improve?

Thanks,

Florian

Disable replacement of slash

Hello,
Max replaces a / to _ (example AC/DC becomes AC_DC). Can I disable this somehow?

Thanks,

Optimal settings for FLAC

Hello, I want to archive my CD collection using FLAC. Are there any optimal recommended settings? I'm using the latest unstable Max version on Leopard. Since FLAC is loseless I don't think there are any settings that effect quality. What is about the reserved space (default = 8192 byte) for metadata...
