Is there a way to see any errors in the JSON syntax? I've been trying to figure out how to prioritize soundfonts and SFZs but I'm having issues doing that at the moment, and I can't seem to find any errors in the console.

Sounds like it's resetting to the beginning of the file, instead of the beginning of the current subsong's serial number. (Subsongs in Ogg streams are handled as appended streams, differentiated by their unique serial numbers.)

There is or isn't a lossy warning when converting from DTS. If DTS is in a WAV file, it depends on the container calling it "lossless", as it is encoded in PCM. If it's a .dts file, it will only have no warning if it is DTS HD MA, which is lossless.
Opus / Re: Opus 1.3.1

Why can't they just document how to build it?
The appveyor (rightmost build passing) on the development page kinda is that, just not really what some imagine. To build opus-tools you need to also build the libraries for Flac, LibOgg, Opus, LibOpusEnc, Opusfile, and OpenSSL (1.0.2-stable). You'll also need perl and nasm for the OpenSSL libraries (it eventually also uses nmake on the command line) and to copy some of the code from other repositories into multiple other repositories' include folder (like ogg\ogg.h in LibOgg). It's a fun little adventure.

Thanks a lot to both for the script. I was looking for something like this months ago. I think it would be a good idea to have one in the uploads section.

@wcs13  I don't know about indentation, but you can at least split the single line script using the extended search option. For example, usually a position  where a new line makes sense in a titleformatting expression is between a closed bracket and a dollar sign (there might be other options I can't think of right now).

So, for example, you can replace:
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]

It might not be the most sensible way to split lines, but it will make it more readable and than you can adjust it.

In case I wasn't clear: I'm talking about notepad++

I made some quick test and I found these two replacements to be very useful to split lines in a reasonable way:

Code: [Select]
replace with:
Code: [Select]


Code: [Select]
replace with:
Code: [Select]
CD Hardware/Software / Re: Ripping when Murphy strikes: is this a viable solution?
Last post by smz -
Well, @DVDdoug, you almost had me with that!  :D

As I said in the OP the CDs are in a really bad shape (both of them, but particularly my original one, a little bit less so the second one I bought on Amazon). With that I mean that at times (frequently on the original) I can easily hear a lot of "tshik-tshik-tshiks". I also took my old Revox B126 out of the attic and tried with it, but, helas, it is even worse with it (btw, it's on sale if anyone is interested...).

Of course that doesn't takes anything away from Stravinsky's music or Dutoit's performance, but every "tshik" is a reminder that I'm an idiot for not having backed-up the CD before the darn ink did his nasty work on the precious substrate.

Beside there is the dark obsessive side of myself that can't tolerate a single bit out of place, but that's another story, and I must admit you're much wiser than I am about that...

And of course there is also the "challenging" aspect of trying to fix the problem (and put order back in the Universe??  ::)), which is another good reason for trying (I'm right now learning how to read .wav files in Python, and it's interesting...)

I have a CD which I really like but for some reasons I always forgot to rip in lossless format
Does that mean you have a "perfectly good" lossy copy?  ;)

I don't think you mentioned if you were getting audible errors in burst mode?

And, you didn't mention if the CD plays OK.   If it plays without audible defects, you can make an "analog" recording.

If you can't hear the defects, my advice is to try not to worry about it and enjoy the music!    I have a few CDs that had ripping errors or AccurateRip errors but as long as they sound OK, or if I was able to make a "repair" with an audio editor, or download an MP3, etc.,  I have literally forgotten which CDs were "bad".   In a few cases, I've burned a new CD which is not digitally-perfect but it sounds OK and it can be played or ripped without (further) errors.   If I open a jewel case and find a burned CD that's a reminder that there was a problem with the original but it doesn't detract from my enjoyment of listening.

Most of my CDs were ripped before I had AccuateRip (before AccuratRip existed, I think) an I've NEVER had an audible error when EAC says "no errors", even when I had AccurateRip and it indicated a mismatch.   And sometimes EAC will report a "possible error" but I can't hear a defect.

AccurateRip is a GREAT tool but CDs and music are for listening enjoyment!   ;)
