Re: Order of tracks not maintained when dragging

Do your FLAC folders (most of them?) have M3U files? Load those into Decibel. Unless this is what you meant by not using playlists?

Re: temp files when doing file conversions

Not sure if these files are the same as what I originally asked about. In relation to another issue I had cause to play with output directories and noticed in Max>Preferences>Output damned if there isn't a choice for Temp Files. I have merely created a MaxScratch directory on a non SSD volume.

Re: ALAC > AAC

Mystery solved. Sorta. It's something to do with this one batch of files. As I had used this workflow so many times over the years I never thought it might be the files. I was simply embarking on a routine I do periodically: switch out the AAC files on my iPhone and so grab a bunch of my ALAC I play...

Re: ALAC > AAC

Thanks, Matt, but please re-read my original post. I have done exactly the same thing tens of thousands of times: same external drive, same file naming. Now having said that I did just do a test with a track on my boot drive and output directory also on boot volume. And, yep, it worked. <insert bang...

ALAC > AAC

I've used Max for transcoding thousands of times. Today I'm getting the following error: The call to ExtAudioFileSetProperty failed. Searching shows over the years others have gotten it in a variety of situations with no help. This is the first time to use Max since updating to 10.9.2. It does not h...

Re: temp files when doing file conversions

Certainly not worth it at the time. Now? In my case, no. As I said, I just moved to the mini. But as more and more folks move to SSDs, and as other applications try and fail to do what Max does, I see Max's viability to continue strong as ever so there might be others who will need this functionalit...

Re: temp files when doing file conversions

Thanks, Stephen. I can remote into the new Mac mini in the other room when I'm feeling exceptionally lazy. All the files are on networked drives anyway. So there's no pressing need, but I do wonder. I have used programs in the past that let the user pick a "scratch disc/location". Is this the same t...

temp files when doing file conversions

I make great use of Max for taking FLAC files and transcoding to ALAC and AAC (all files on external drives). I have blissfully done so (as in 'ignorance is bliss') for so many years. But now I have a wondering, the answer may be buried somewhere in this Max forums' 5604 posts and if so please accep...

Re: Still using Max, still happy

For what it might be worth, Max and CDs are fine here: MacBook Pro ('early 2011') OS X 10.9.1.

As useful as Max is, ripping is no longer it's forte. Have you tried XLD for ripping?

I concur. I have tried others in the hope of finding a better workflow but nothing is as rock solid.
