Are there better free deglitch software out there?
I say, we need a 'CD player' extraction mode--a mode that can run at at least 1x on any track, however damaged, and concentrate on 'error hiding' using on-the-fly available information rather than trying to get that impossible 'perfect rip'.
Why is it that Burst mode is regarded as better than Fast mode? (IIRC)
Well, when a file sounded obviously glitched to me, deglitch agreed, with over 3000 glitches detected... but they're still there after deglitch 'corrected' them. I guess I shouldn't be expecting too much... but the real mystery is that this track played flawlessly to my ears on a discman... :blink: I guess after-the-fact correction is simply missing some data that could have been used to correct the file during extraction... would 'Use C2 error information for error correction' be the thing?
So I suppose the CD-ROM drive's error correction is already kicking in when you set it to read in burst mode?
Do you know how to set the reading speed of the CD-ROM lower in win xp? (edit: or indeed, windows anything? I thought I knew how to set it in win9x but I just tried... and is this dependent on the drive whether you can do this or not?)
More importantly, do you think that would help with the error concealment quality?I remember reading something to the effect that a Plextor set at 4x has much better error correction AND concealment (not sure about the concealment part) than the same drive set at max. speed. Also read in the same article that one drive can have worse error correction but better error concealment than another drive, etc.
