I didn't realize the settings were on the defaults until I had ripped 3 CDs. Here are the results:
16 tracks, all with "Accurately ripped (confidence 2)" and a CUETools DB status of "(5/5) Accurately ripped"
30 tracks, all with "Accurately ripped (confidence 5)" or "Accurately ripped (confidence 4)" and CUETools DB statuses ranging from "(25/25) Accurately ripped" to "(23/25) Accurately ripped"
30 tracks, all with "Accurately ripped (confidence 15)" or "Accurately ripped (confidence 14)" and CUETools DB statuses ranging from "(29/29) Accurately ripped" to "(28/29) Accurately ripped"
Since the AccurateRip CRC codes match and since the CUETools DB status is "Accurately ripped", is it safe to assume that the rips were perfect? That all of the audio files were perfect?
So the CUETools DB comparison confirms that the gaps were accurate, right?
Would you recommend doing a second rip using secure mode? Would there be any advantage in doing a secure rip for these CDs?
A secure rip with secure gap detection would generate the exact same audio files and cue sheets, right?
If 'burst" is just as good as "secure" unless the CD is heavily scratched, is it better to set the ripping mode to "burst"?
