I only just discovered--possibly it's new--that one (possibly more) of the Windows rippers has the ability to compare your rips with other people's over the network. The idea seems to be that if your rip doesn't agree with what several others have you probably need to clean your CD or find a less damaged copy.
It sounds like an interesting idea--although in practice I suppose whether it's that important is another matter. But I just wondered if a similar feature might make its way into Max in time if there's a public API for that.

database are used by EAC and dbpoweramp.
But its sadly limited to MS Windows only, and hence not possible to use in Max.
Edit: Stephen. Would the perl script mentioned here be usable?

Thanks for the link to the earlier discussion, KR. Somehow I'd missed that first time round.

I'll have to dust off my perl skills and take a look- thanks for the links.

You're most welcome!
It would be great if Max got access to the AccurateRip database.
Max would probably need drive offset capability as well though.

Stephen. This "might" be good news...
ARCue, the multiplatform AccurateRip checksum script, have just been ported from Perl to C++. Maybe that makes it easier to integrate AccurateRip into Max?

Thanks for this- I'll take a look.
Strangely, I was reviewing the perl script the day before yesterday and it seemed to me at the time that the file had to be ripped as a WAV for the script to work.
