    Wrong artist name in Songs.xml after Rip

    I just ripped Allen/Lande, "The Revenge", and it imported correctly: <Song> <FilePath>Music\Allen_Lande - [2007] The Revenge\Allen_Lande - [2007] The Revenge.flac</FilePath> <MusicFolder>Music</MusicFolder> <Artist>Russell Allen &amp; Jørn Lande</Artist> <Title>The Revenge</Title> <Album>The Revenge</Album> <Date>2007</Date> <Composer /> <AlbumArtist>Allen/Lande</AlbumArtist> <TrackNumber>1</TrackNumber> <TotalTracks>12</TotalTracks> <DiscNumber>1</DiscNumber> <TotalDiscs>1</TotalDiscs> <Length>3510930000</Length> <StartPosition>0</StartPosition> <EndPosition>351093</EndPosition> <StarRating>0</StarRating> <PlayCount>0</PlayCount> <LastPlayed>0001-01-01T00:00:00-05:00</LastPlayed> <FirstPlayed>0001-01-01T00:00:00-05:00</FirstPlayed> <Added>2019-02-22T21:19:52.8873963-05:00</Added> <Missing>false</Missing> <LastUpdatedFromFile>0001-01-01T00:00:00-05:00</LastUpdatedFromFile> </Song>

    Wrong artist name in Songs.xml after Rip

    Ok... I see that you cannot change the file path or file name to be a '/', but changing the <AlbumArtist> fixes the artwork and naming problems: <AlbumArtist>Allen/Lande</AlbumArtist>
  4. @Jason Carr The one i bought from Amazon is; Rioddas External CD Drive, USB 3.0 Portable CD/DVD +/-RW Drive Slim DVD/CD ROM Rewriter Burner Compatible with Laptop Desktop PC Windows Linux OS Apple Mac(Black) it works great using other popular CD ripping software. Even ones using the same back end as yours (exact audio copy. EAC). I did determine that my old drive is faulty which is why I bought this one. if you got any idea as to what the problem is that would be cool. Thanks Jason.
  5. I ripped Allen/Lande, "The Battle". I checked with MusicBrainz and they correctly have the CD artist listed as Allen/Lande (also Allen-Lande). I also checked fanart.tv and they have art for Allen/Lande. The songs.XML lists it as <FilePath>Music\Allen ú Lande - [2005] The Battle\Allen ú Lande - [2005] The Battle.flac</FilePath> Due to the wrong character in the XML, the title comes up incorrectly in Music Box Alpha and does not find the appropriate artwork from fanart.tv.

    Stuttering Over Time

    I've had some stuttering too, on 0.17. Happened on a newly ripped CD. It would stutter every few minutes, but FLAC was fine and I could rewind and replay without stutter. I'm on a pretty high-end machine, so I wonder if it could be related to hard drive performance. I will have to try and move music over to my SSD and retry.

    Collection Viewing Suggestions

    Thank you A-Noid, most of that was already planned, but there are a couple of good ideas in there that I hadn't considered. Adding them to my list.

    Crash after ripping CD

    Thank you A-Noid, I'm guessing you're correct. I'll get that fixed.
  9. Sadly no, but I will look into it. What are the make and models of both of your drives?

    Collection Viewing Suggestions

    I like where you're heading. Just a few suggestions... 1. When I sort all songs by Album, I would think that the songs on each album would be ordered by track #. 2. When you are playing songs and view the album, I would like to see the current track highlighted in the album. Sometimes it works, but when you select Collection\Albums after looking at other things, you'll lose the highlight. 3. When you view the Queue, you can't see the track # of the song that is going to play. Be nice with a lot of songs to show the track # as a column. 4. I would like to see the current playing track in the Queue, highlighted and say playing. 5. Probably already asked for, but Jukebox, Shuffle, Play Lists 6. Can't modify your Queue, delete tracks / albums after adding to the Queue. You can play an album, but only by selecting a song on the album, which kills your play list. Right-click add to Queue? 7. Add drop & drop support to add images to artist or album. 8. Can only get multiple albums in the play list by hitting the play button at the top of the screen. Difficult to setup to play say 4 albums or a handful of songs. 9. Can you add the ability to see the rip accuracy if you have the log file? I see that I can open the log and get to the rip status, but it would be nice to see it, if I want to decide to re-rip a CD. 10. When you insert the CD after previously ripping it, it would be nice to indicate that the CD is already ripped and give the accuracy after right clicking on the CD icon at the top right.

    Multiple files for Artist Art

    In this same vein, it would make sense to have multiple image files for albums too. I just ripped my Led Zepplin box set (4 cds), and each CD has different artwork. Alll 4 CDs are using the same artwork in Music Box Alpha for CD #1.

    Multiple files for Artist Art

    Yes, it would be nice if you could have an option to rotate through or randomly display the different images.
  14. @Jason Carr Hello. I just hooked up a new external drive to my PC and I can not rip any CD's. I am now getting THIS error when attempting to do so.

    Crash after ripping CD

    FYI - Music Box Alpha crashed on me after ripping my first CD. I suspect that it was because I had not created / set a music folder. After adding the music folder and reripping the CD, it worked. Running Demo Version 0.17 1. Installed Music Box Alpha 2. Inserted a CD 3. Started RIp 4. Rip at 99% 5. Software went *Poof* A-Noid

  17. Yeah, Exact Audio Copy is really the only other product (other than CUETools) that provides accurate rips. It's been a while since I've used it; the only problem with it is less support for proper FLAC CD images (though they may have added better support for that recently). Regardless, I haven't attempted it yet but I still think I can make some headway on that issue with CUETools.
  18. FWIW @Jason Carr, I started to look into free CD Ripping programs that support AccurateRip and lossy and lossless compression and came across Exact Audio Copy (EAC). Although it's free for personal use, they do have a commercial SDK. The nice thing is that it works with my internal CD/DVD drive that I had issues with CUETools.

    Albums Not Separating

    Thank you @CutTheRug. I'll take a look.

    The CUE is actually embedded in the FLAC file, so the FLAC file will do just fine. Thanks!
  21. No problem @Ded2Me. Keep in mind that I am aware that CUETools has some compatibility issues with some drives, and I *do* plan on looking at it.
  22. I will stand corrected. It seems that my drive is acting strangely. I will buy a external to see if I have better results. This is so odd. Anyway, Thank you Jason.
  23. Jason. I am all about supporting your work. I love Launchbox and I am a lifetime license holder. (Disclaimer, I did win this in a contest but planned on buying the software anyway) I usually use CDex (https://cdex.mu/) to rip my discs. But your software is an all in one suite that I think MANY people are asking for. (Artwork, polaylists etc...) It has always worked great for me (I admit I am not a FLAC guy, but I enjoy my high bitrate mp3s) I would like to go FLAC eventually. And I think your software can eventually provide this. Why would this software (CDex) work without a hitch on my drive that does not work well with your software? I realize this software is in alpha stage, but there is NOTHING wrong with my drive. It works perfectly. I don't see how spending 30-40 bucks on an external drive is going to solve my issue when I have working equipment. Thanks for all your hard work. Hopefully you can get this sorted out eventually. I will not be asking for a refund because I believe in your talents and abilities. Like I said, You make great stuff. I will be watching closely to see if this bug gets resolved.

    Albums Not Separating

    Having a minor issue where multiple versions of the same album do not separate. In this particular case I have both an FLAC and MP3 version of the album. Here's how it looks in MBA and WMP. You can see that WMP separates Drab Majesty's album "The Demonstration" possibly based on file type, or maybe because I have them in separate folders. Not sure exactly why but it does it somehow.

    Sure thing. Just the flac? Don't need the cue?

    Wow, that's odd. Can you upload the FLAC file here via PM so I can test with it? I'll delete it as soon as I'm done for legal reasons, but I'll need the file in order to debug this. Thanks @Kneeba.

    Incorrect Times

    I've just started ripping my CD collection and have ran into a small snag. I've ripped the album 2112 by Rush. Now the first track on that album if you aren't familiar is about 20 minutes long, but it's broken down into smaller "pieces" all in the one track. But when I play it in Music Box Alpha, I only get the last portion of 2:14 instead of the full 20 minutes. Is there possibly some changes I need to make to the cue file? When I play the flac in Windows Media Player it all plays fine.
  28. I see; that makes sense. I'll see if I can tweak those column sizes.
