Re: Problem Converting 24bit FLAC files

I just ran into this same problem, trying to convert a few FLAC files. I even tried the 'unstable' version off the site. I forget the build number bout the 'about this app' calls itself 0.9.2.
Do you want me to just send you one of these FLACs that is causing problems?

;-)

Hows it coming? Did you use my mockup? If so, can I get a credit line somewhere deep in an about box? :-P I haven't used Max at all lately so I haven't been keeping track of things. Hopefully I'll have more CDs to rip soon, and hopefully I'll be using a nice new version of Max to do it with.

I don't know which files it was choking on, thats part of the problem. It didn't tell me, it just said A file had a bad name and stopped. And as far as all those characters go, my files are named automatically based on the track soooo not much I can do about it. Other than manually sorting through 3...

File Name Trouble with Windows

So I had ripped about 260 CDs for someone using Max. I loaded up all the AACs onto a hard drive and plugged it into the windows PC. Then I tried to drag all the music into iTunes. It kept getting about 2/3 of the way, and then it would get some error about a file name being too long or containing in...

I stopped using paranoia because it was having issues with enhanced CDs a while back. It would lock up trying to rip the data track as audio. But that is fixed and so if its faster and gives better quality, and also you are saying its more reliable, well then that settles that.

I used to use the basic ripper because i rip batches of hundreds of CDs and I need speed. After reading this post I figured I've give Paranoia a try, if its going to give my clients better audio and not add significant time to the ripping. Well, most of this client's CDs are TRASHED and CD paranoia ...

CPU Usage

I've been noticing that Max isn't maxing out either of my CPUs. Its doing about 90% CPU. How come? This is when doing encoding but no ripping, so all the files are on disk. It can't possibly be a hard drive bottleneck. Whats holding it back? I'd love to get a 10% performance boost in my encoding.

Little more: CDDB doubles would still come off this main window in sheets asking you to pick. Ideally the sheet would be bigger than it is now, to show more data to help make your choice. Also these sheets should stop or slow down ripping and encoding processes already in progress. And when there we...

iTunes 6 + Photoshop = The solution to this problem. Wanting Max to have a "1 Window" interface doesn't mean one window for everything, it means one window per.... function. In other words, one window for cd ripping/encoding, and one window for file converting. Here is my mock up. Its not a .nib, it...

Crash Recovery

OK I've been thinking about it, I have a few ideas how to make the app recoverable from crashes. This all came about from me today when my Max crashed. At the time I had 7 CDs being ripped 11 GB of already encoded music, and 448 songs/25GB of music in the encoder queued up to be encoded. When rippin...

Since Max individual CD windows stay open until the CD is done being encoded, even after the CD is automatically ejected, i often have 50-100 of these windows open at a time.

Yeah, I do CD ripping as a business, thats why I use Max. Its the ONLY application that will let you rip/encode more than one CD at a time.

Finder CD Naming?

Is it possible for Max to rename the CD on the desktop like iTunes does? That would be great because what often happens is when I have 7 CDs in, one won't want to work, but they all have names like Audio CD n, so I can never tell which is which.

I just built whatever the newest is as of the date of this posting. First thing I notice is, why does it ask me to choose my formats for encoding every time I insert a CD, even though I set those settings in the app's prefs? Otherwise it seems smoother than 0.6.1. It doesn't tie itself up nearly as ...
