I think that users would benefit from my cooperation with Mr. Spoon, and if he decides to work together on CTDB and add CTDB support to dbPoweramp that would be great. But databases should be separate, because they are too different to depend on each other.

In ideal world CTDB shouldn't depend on AR at all
I'd like to help populating the database:I have a few thousand CDs ripped (with dBpoweramp), stored as one-.flac-per-track, one-folder-per-disc. Is there a command line way to script "submit to CTDB" based on folder without running AR verification on each track, which would take a couple of weeks on my hardware?
A utility to scan my library and submitt to CTDB would be nice.

As much as I would like to help the database I don't plan to manually go through thousands of albums. If I am missing a way to do this w/ CT please let me know.
Looks like CTDB could now be more fully integrated by an outside developer as spoon has opened the DSP architecture:http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=85243
Maybe the output path (for the log) was too long - the default template places it somewhere like C:\Documents and settings\username\My Music\.... which can easily get too long. I'll think how to handle this case better, maybe by abbreviating artist/album names to something shorter when generating a path.

Gregory, can CueTools read the CD TOC tags used by dbpoweramp? Many CDs I have are not recognized as being in the AccurateRip DB when they are. Likely, because there are no CUE files. However, the songs are tagged with the CD TOC tag and that should be enough to recognize the disc in the AR DB.
Gregory, are you indicating your intention to work on/develop a DSP to bring CTDB to dBpoweramp or your willingness to help a developer do so.
Gregory, there have been recent discussion regarding consistent errors from drives, rippers, or discs. What information does CTDB store about the source of its data? Is the submitting drive and/or ripper stored? What about the source (previously ripped, vs cd ripper, etc...)
Do you have to rip the disc using CueTools Ripper for a disc to be submitted or is disc submitted when using verify in CueTools?
I am not sure if CDTOC contains sufficient information, but the ACCURATERIPDISCID tag should?
Gregory, another question for you. How does CTDB identify unique discs? Pressings of the same data with different offsets are, basically the same discs. But what if a disc is remastered but has the same number of tracks with same tracks lengths, but different audio because its remastered?
