I want to thank spoon for not only having the idea of a database, but then actually acting on it and implementing it. I hope AccurateRip sticks around the life of the CD, plus 75 years. tongue.gif

Lossless downloads already exist, but the benefit is really minimal. MP3 (and even AAC) support is ubiquitous today, and will likely be for a long time, the need to transcode to other formats is negligible. Also, see my point above, audio formats hardly matter.


I have no objection to the truth of what you say from an audibility standpoint. I just think if you see no significant benefit to lossless music in the first place, surely AccurateRip is of even less value since its purpose isn't really to catch big, audible defects like skips, most often it's some small number of samples that have gone wrong. Seems to me the logical end of that line of thinking is that you might as well skip dBpowerAMP or EAC and setting them up properly and rip CDs that are in good condition with Windows Media Player.

I was not saying that secure ripping software is pointless, I was rather suggesting that most people tend to obsess about minor problems, which don't really matter most of the time, if at all.

I know what you mean, I'm just saying isn't that mostly AccurateRip's purpose? No offense, of course; I use it and am quite happy to. But I've ripped many tracks and gotten the message that one wasn't accurate with no audible defects. Purchases from the iTunes store may have no audible defects but I don't think that defeats the purpose of buying lossless files instead or wanting for them to be offered. But I forgot, Engelsstaub was also talking about 24/96 and such, so I take it you were addressing that more than CD quality lossless.

And congratulations on 666 posts. laugh.gif

Someone mentioned an ARv3 above - is one actually coming?


Yes, with some potentially AMAZING improvements:

It seems it will compete with CTDB (though I will still like to see CTDB available within dbpoweramp to both submit and correct, and making CTDB track based may encourage spoon...)

If it does repair (as proposed) it solves a major problem.
