I have been using my own trunk build from svn since you put out the new ripper, and I have ripped ~10 CD's without any problems. I use the Comparison Ripper with 3 matches pr. sector and max. retries set to 20. Which work great for me. You're certainly on the right track to create a secure ripper fo...

Re: Converting MP3s to higher bit-rate?

Is it possible to convert a 64bps mp3 file to 128 bps and still have the file sound okay? Yes, its possible. But I dont see why you want to do this. :shock: 1. Additional loss in sound quality (the 128kbps file will sound worse than the 64kbps one). 2. Twice the filesize (especially when you consid...

Oh, I understand.
I thought the cdparanoia library could be used to correct read offset, just like the binary. But since it cant, perhaps you should use your time to improve your new ripper engine instead? :D

sbooth. I dont know how much work this is, but it dont sound too advanced.
Please consider adding a setting in "Max -> Preferences -> Ripper", where we manually enter a drive offset value. Which you then pass on to cdparanoia with the "--sample-offset" command.

Or at least comment on this! :wink:

I am with you on this one. :)
It would be great if Max allowed us to set the read offset value in the Preferences, and pass it to cdparanoia.

AccurateRip have a massive drive offset list, which might be useful:

Topic: Bug when ripping CDs with a data track.

The problem with ripping Mixed Mode CD's are discussed in this thread as well.
Seems like cdparanoia have problems ripping these CD's. So there might not be an easy workaround for this in Max.

I suggest you try another application to rip the troublesome track. Ex. cdda2wav, cdrdao or iTunes.
