  1. Okay, I see what happened with the ELO CD. MBA made changes to the flac file's Title and Track Tags. With each title I changed it changed those fields. While MBA was running, it appeared to be fine, but since the album is a single file, only the last change applied, which was track 8's title and track number. However, the cueshet wasn't changed, which is where track titles are stored. I suspect the behaviour for editing this type of album will have to be looked at. The CUESHEET field is a requirement for this type of rip to work right, so checking for its presence should be doable. Yay Alpha testing!
  2. Hey @Jason Carr, just thought I'd put these thoughts down while they're still fresh. Metadata editing seems to work, but throws up some errors now and then. It said in the error box that those get sent automatically, so likely you're seeing them already. Editing a song's metadata while another song is playing causes an odd edge case. If the song ends and moves onto the next song, the song list will switch away from the album you're trying to edit. I'm getting Unexpected Files Found in the Temporary directory errors often. Checked the MBA folder and I'm seeing that it's held onto two complete albums, even tough it had already copied those off to the Music folder. Not sure why those are in the MBA root. Deleted them manually and the error went away. One album failed to get identified by Musicbrainz, it was Face the Music by ELO. I know Musicbrainz has it, though. It's possible it didn't find the specific pressing I have. I had to add the metadata in manually before ripping it. Afterwards, MBA was able to grab the album cover for it, but the song titles I needed to fill in myself. Some way of telling MBA "This one is close enough" would be a nice addition. Which brings up another issue with that newly ripped ELO album. After ripping and editing its metadata to fill in the song names, it looked like all was good, but when I closed and reopened MBA all the song titles I'd just added were gone. Righty, that's all I've got for now. Have a great weekend, man!
  3. Apart from creating new views, playback isn't all that different, though you'd have to store the track and time position by default. There's also the .m4b format, which is an aac file with embedded chapter data. Then there's DAISY, which is a whole other kettle of fish. I'd kind of like audiobook support, too, at some point. Right now I use Audiobookedfor that, which is fine, but it's a bit buggy at times.

    Making THemes?

    Well then, I'll give it a try. How's the next release shaping up, anyway?

    Making THemes?

    I notice that MBA has a theme selector, but there's only the default one there. Do you have any documentation on how to build themes? I'd like to give it a go.
  6. Replying to this one again because I ran into another one. This time, no matter how many times I try I can't get past this step.

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. @Jason CarrI hate to jump in, but while what you said is true in most cases, other CDs have hidden tracks before the first track and not as part of the last track. Sometimes they even do weird things and hide the track in the middle of the disc. It's hard to spot these, but the only way that I know of is to look at the starting sectors. If Track 1 doesn't start at 0, you know there's something before it. Same goes if the gap between one track and the next's starting and ending sectors is a big one. Hope that makes sense. @DreanI'm curious to see if this is the case here. Could you open up the log file that MBA makes and paste the TOC section for those two discs? It might not help Jason, but now I'm really curious.
  15. Yeah. Eventually you have to give up, but one or two retries would help. If I can get you more verbose info, let me know how.
