  2. Yeah, it might. I'll take a look.

  4. Interesting. Must be a glitch with CUERipper, I guess.

    CD Rip Errors

    Currently, the log just shows that there were errors, but not where in the track they were. It's possible that CueTools may have a more verbose logging level, though.

    -1 Read Errors

    Yeah, this happened right near the end of the disc, though. Usually the retry number is positive, but in this case it was stuck at -1. Didn't affect the output, as I said, but I think it might've happened like that because the progress was jumping between 99 and 100% and going back and forth between those percentages.
  7. I'm guessing maybe the log file would report where the errors occur? I think it does.
  8. That is a great idea, though it's more of a suggestion for CUETools/CUERipper than MBA. It's also possible that CUETools has something like that built-in already, but I'm not aware of it.
  9. Hehehe, no worries. Feedback is always good. I'll add that to my list.
  10. Gotcha. Those retries are normal, and are usually just because it's having trouble reading the disc, for whatever reason. But the retries are how it manages to get perfect reads off of discs that it struggles to read, so that looks like it's working as expected.
  11. I managed to catch this one while I was ripping in the 4th CD of The King of Fighters soundtrack. It did end up finishing and confirming as perfect despite the retries. Seems like it was able to get everything it needed.
  12. Just tried to rip this album. https://beta.musicbrainz.org/release/0d7a5e7f-744d-4e8e-8df1-0ad4a6a75e02 The artist field is Japanese. It appears in MBA as ????. Heh, yeah, I know, you're going to get sick of me.

    CD Rip Errors

    I was just thinking about this as I ran into a few CD's the ripped successfully but had errors. If you have the information on where those errors occurred, would it be possible to surface that after the rip gets done as timestamps in the affected tracks? Sometimes, even if a rip doesn't validate as accurate, the errors aren't audible, so it'd be nice to be able to know where they happened and hear if they matter or not.

  15. got it figured out, had to go into properties/details to edit the meta data. currently ripping my 900+ punk rock cd collection to "MBA".... going on day 4...starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel i think. thank you for all of your work with music box alpha and launchbox!! I have been importing ROMs for weeks
  16. Can we get artists logos like in launchbox? Thanks.
  17. Thank you scabab. Editing song metadata is definitely coming soon, as well as song/album counts.
  18. Hi scabab, did you rip the music from the CD or just put it in the folder? It's probably because the file tags (song names, artist, etc.) aren't correct or are not filled out.
  19. i have added a bunch of music, but when i added my bad religion discography none of it shows up anywhere but in the songs list... help? i need all artwork and atrists listed as i am buil;ding a jukebox type project

  21. First off, I LOVE MUSIC BOX ALPHA!!! Thank you.. I would love to be able to edit song meta data, (or easier if it already exists) i added my old bands from when i was young and i am left with blank song names. Also, a song/album count with hours/days/months of music playback display keep up the amazing work. i will post my music box project when finished.
  22. OK thanks for the feedback.
  23. I will be adding support for folder.jpg files, but currently it only reads the artwork from the file tags. For now, the best option would be to use a program like Mp3tag to batch-add the folder.jpg files to the file tags.
  24. My entire music collection already has high quality album art stored inside the album folder as folder.jpg How can I get Music Box Alpha to use those?
  25. Happy to help. You said you had another CD that did the same thing. Here's a place where you can find cuesheets. https://www.regeert.nl/cuesheet/ You should be able to find an appropriate cuesheet there that has the right number of tracks.
  26. That worked. I did have to remove my music folder and re-add it. @DarynThank you.
  27. From what I can tell by testing a CD I have with a Track 0, CueRipper sticks to what the TOC says and only rips that, which is really what you'd want to do anyway. So by the look of it, MBA did what it's supposed to and ripped what it should have. I think the discrepancy coming from the CUETools DB which is giving back metadata that has the hidden track visible. Maybe there should be a check to see if the number of tracks ripped matches up with the number in the cuesheet? A time check, maybe? I'm just spitballing. As to how you can fix this on your own, there is a way to do it, but Jason is right, it's a lot of fiddling about. Still, if you want to do it, here's how. This is the easiest way, it's possible to do this in other ways, but this is the most straightforward. First, head to https://foobar2000.com and download this player. Foobar2000 is a great player, but it is literally the polar opposite of MBA. While MBA is all about ease of use, this is a power tool. Install and launch foobar and then go to File > Open and point it to the flacfile that MBA created. It'll appear in the UI and start playing. Hold the Shift key and Right Click on the file. Then go to Utilities and pick Edit cuesheet. You'll see all the track info there. You'll have to remove the block for Track 1, the hidden track, then renumber the rest, shifting them down one. If you do this, it'll work, but your corrected track 1 will start 18 seconds in. Here's a 12 track cuesheet for this album. Don't cut and paste that into foobar's editor, instead, just use this as a guide for setting up the track times. PERFORMER "AFI" TITLE "Decemberunderground (2006)" FILE "AFI - Decemberunderground (2006).mp3" MP3 TRACK 01 AUDIO TITLE "Prelude 12/21" INDEX 01 00:00:00 TRACK 02 AUDIO TITLE "Kill Caustic" INDEX 01 01:37:23 TRACK 03 AUDIO TITLE "Miss Murder" INDEX 01 04:17:42 TRACK 04 AUDIO TITLE "Summer Shudder" INDEX 01 07:47:28 TRACK 05 AUDIO TITLE "The Interview" INDEX 01 10:56:55 TRACK 06 AUDIO TITLE "Love Like Winter" INDEX 01 15:17:36 TRACK 07 AUDIO TITLE "Affliction" INDEX 01 18:06:64 TRACK 08 AUDIO TITLE "The Missing Frame" INDEX 01 21:46:11 TRACK 09 AUDIO TITLE "Kiss and Control" INDEX 01 26:27:01 TRACK 10 AUDIO TITLE "The Killing Lights" INDEX 01 30:45:17 TRACK 11 AUDIO TITLE "37mm" INDEX 01 34:50:29 TRACK 12 AUDIO TITLE "Endlessly, She Said" INDEX 01 38:47:06 I hope that helps. @Jason Carrapologies for being obsessive.
