Re: Max's Comparison Ripper options

I have filed a feature request, thank you.

Where is the source code for Rip? I may be myopic, but I can't find it.

Re: Max's Comparison Ripper options

I understand the move towards Rip -- I've used it for straight FLAC ripping and it's excellent. However... :) 1) Will there ever be an iTunes compatibility mode (that names files in the way iTunes does)? If I'm ripping a multi-disc set, I don't want to always have to change the file output specifier...

Re: Get iTunes MetaData Script and Compilations

I have the same problem. I have my output directory set to something other than iTunes Library. I have the "iTunes compatibility mode" checkbox selected. If the iTunes metadata script is run, my output directory is always Music/My Music Dir/Compilation. Does this happen on the first disc or only on...

Re: Sorting behavior for multi-disc collection (Solved)

Answered my own question: just add the disc column to the display and sort by disc. The tracks are then sorted within the disc.

Hope this helps someone with the same question.

Sorting behavior for multi-disc collection

I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but I'm wondering about the sorting in Play for multi-disc collections. I have a collection where the metadata for each track includes the number of disc within the total number of discs. When I open the library window and sort by track, the tracks are sorted b...

Re: iTunes and OGG files

That does do it. I also got to look at the source a lot, which gave me a small glimpse into the fun and wackiness that is Objective-C (I'm a former C programmer who now lives full time in Java land).

Thanks again for the help and for creating Max in the first place.

Re: iTunes and OGG files

I'd forgotten how this was implemented- Ogg Vorbis is marked as non-compatible with iTunes, so Max won't attempt to add the files. If this is something you are interested in I can give you a tiny modification to the source that would let this work. That would make my life a lot easier :) -- all of ...

Re: iTunes and OGG files

Thanks for the reply. I am indeed using the XiphQT component to play ogg files in iTunes. Is the AppleScript that controls the metadata external to Max? Perhaps I could test it within the script editor? One more thing -- when I produced MP3 files with Max, they were automatically added to the iTunes...

iTunes and OGG files

Here's my question, and I hope it hasn't been asked: I'm using iTunes 8, and I've been using Max to rip Ogg Vorbis files. I have "Add output files to iTunes Library" checked in preferences. However, nothing gets imported to the iTunes library. I figured this was because of iTunes 8. However, here's ...
