XLD Requested Features List

Reply #100
Previous versions of XLD didn't, but would it be possible to copy over ALL tags when transcoding from one format to another? Even non-standard ones?

...Or at least the tags that iTunes can/will append to files it recognises (e.g. ALBUMSORTORDER, ITUNESCOMPILATION, etc.)

ozmosis82 I added your suggestion to the suggested features list which located in the 1st post of this thread.  Thank you for your suggestion.

I'll join the chorus of people hoping for 10.1 to be removed.  It just seems to add confusion with no tangible benefits.

I suggested to tmkk that if he was worried about removing the old CD Paranoia III 10.1 engine and how it would effect XLD's current user base, that he could place an older version of XLD that did not contain the new CD Paranoia III 10.2 engine on Rarewares appeasing the small portion of the users that might be interested in having access to the old CD Paranoia III 10.1 engine.

Thank YOU for taking it into consideration!

Another suggestion would be to have XLD remember the metadata that is entered for a CD (either manually, or when obtained from freedb), so that users don't have to re-enter the information if they insert the disc again.

...VERY frustrating when XLD hangs on a track (due to a scratch or what-have-you) and no amount of clicking on the "Cancel" button stops the ripping process, because I then have to quit and restart XLD... AND re-enter all my metadata.

EDIT:

Oh! And %y for Year, %g for Genre, and %something for Disc Number when specifying an output filename format!

New of version of XLD. 

Version 20080919:

    * Removed all options regarding cache
    * Now the default setting is the "strongest" one in the previous version (the same as cdparanoia 10.2 default). I'll remove the old engine if there is no problem with this version. Integrated drive offset database into application
      You can select the offset correction value for your drive if it is registered in the database.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem inaccurate rips some that some users have experienced.

I've been testing it. Very fast, very consistent.

A good one button "cancel" option that will get out of the endless hang situation, Also just to easily cancel a rip you just started with some wrong settings.
My external drive also disappears in the hang situations, and needs to be disconnected or restarted to show up again - if that can be fixed.

The auto-offset function is great. Only seems to recognize my internal drive though. External drives are pretty important for good ripping with Macs.


Is this version the one with the talked about better integration of 10.2, or just an intermediate step?

In the release notes: Now the default setting is the "strongest" one in the previous version (the same as cdparanoia 10.2 default). I'll remove the old engine if there is no problem with this version.
CD Paranoia 10.2  read ahead value is set to a default 550 sectors while 10.1 default read ahead value is set 150 sectors.

Moderation: Removed quote from previous post, what's the point???  Removed TOS #9 Reference!

It's a much better integration of 10.2, yes it is. Much faster 10.2 ripping speed too. Try it out. There's nothing intermediary about it. It's quite impressive.

Several people have have been confused by the use of the word "suggested" in the AR offset correction value list:

Code: [Select]
List of suggested offset correction values
        #  | Absolute | Relative | Confidence
    ------------------------------------------
        1  |    919   |    871   |     10


That is confusing many people into believing that AR is "suggesting" that changes are required. Several people have written to me asking me why the log is "suggesting" they change the offsets.

I think it would be much less confusing (and much more accurate) if the log were reworded to read as 'List of alternate offset correction values'.

CD Paranoia 10.2  read ahead value is set to a default 550 sectors while 10.1 default read ahead value is set 150 sectors.  This was not adequate for 10.2 according kjoerup posted at  Pedro's forum.


XLD/cdparanoia 10.2 is actually now set at a read ahead default of 1200. Your drive would have to cache more than 1200 sectors (more than 2750KB) worth of audio in order to begin experiencing potential caching problems. It's highly improbable there is such a drive in the market today.

Has anyone ever seen a drive that caches anywhere near that much audio? I think the biggest audio cache I've ever tested was about 1100KB.

This is the largest drive audio cache I have:

Code: [Select]
X Lossless Decoder version 20080919 (92.0)

XLD drive cache analysis logfile

Used drive : PIONEER DVD-RW  DVR-108 (revision 1.17)

Your drive seems to have a cache of 139 sectors (319 Kbytes).
The cache size is small enough for cdparanoia III 10.2 engine.

I believe that a default is fine.  But a range feature should be available for people who's drives that do not cache or have extremely small caches to increase the speed of the ripping process for these users.

@ knucklehead Thanks!

XLD drive offset detection also recognizes all 3 of my external Firewire 400 drives. I've had no problems with that at all.

And what is a drive that "does not cache"?

The "default" is the cdparanoia 10.2 spec. It was designed that way precisely so the user doesn't have to worry about cache anymore. 10.2 takes care of that on its own. You are still thinking of the way pre-10.2 cdparanoia and EAC work. 10.2 isn't like that. Unless some extraordinary super-sized audio cache is invented and marketed, 10.2 has effectively rendered the caching problem moot. There's nothing to adjust; a range feature would be useless -- and throttling cdparanoia isn't going to result in any speed gains. (But may result in other unforeseen problems.) Monty knew what he was doing when he designed 10.2. Trust it.

There's a thread on this here:

Not to bust your chops, but just how does EAC work???

Drives that do not cache do not need flushing.  Which drives don't cache?  Well, NEC makes a few...

Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

Feel free to bust my chops. I don't mind! 

There's caching and then there's "caching." No, I am not being fatuous.

What I meant is that the "caching" or "non-caching" status of a drive is a relative concept here, and said status is dependent upon, nay, defined by  the internal standards of the ripping program being used. For EAC's purposes, a drive that caches more than 64KB of audio is, in practical terms, a "caching" drive. For cdparanoia 9.8, a drive that caches under 300KB can pragmatically be considered to be "non-caching." And we can be talking about the very same drive. Let's say this hypothetical drive caches 120KB. So, is it a caching drive, then? Technically speaking, of course it is. It caches 120KB. Will the aforementioned programs both treat it as a "caching" drive? Not necessarily.

What I was getting at (and admittedly did not articulate well at all) was that it's not useful to apply one program's set of standards to another's. The 10.2 drive cache tolerances are quite different from the old cdparanoia standards, and that forces a rethink in how we need to look at this.

My main point, however, was that it wouldn't be constructive or beneficial to throttle the 10.2 read ahead value down to zero for, say, a truly non-caching NEC drive. Certainly throttling 10.2 down to the old cdparanoia 150 sector read ahead default value didn't work well at all. I imagine that the results would be even worse if you attempted to take it all the way down. And even if that did work, what would be gained from it? I don't think you'd see a significant ripping speed increase.

LG makes some too. I once bought the, pretty pricey at the time GSA-H10A, to try to get around the caching issue. Glad I was able to return it.
I'm also getting reacquainted with my NEC that I bought for the same reason. It's been sitting unused on a shelf for a couple of years for a good reason.



All my drives are showing up now with cache setting. Second program start did the trick.

By doing an invert and mix of the waveforms, it's not an audible error.
I can make that file available if it's of any use.



------ I now have about 30 perfect rips of Mmmbop --- I'm the luckiest guy in the world...

Edit - This error reminds me of a problem I had using Paranoia with the internal Matshita in my old G5 iMac.
Sort of a glitch/burp that occurs, seemingly randomly, right at the end of some tracks. It was dramatically audible in the G5 cases - pretty much just a noise/burp sound, but in one case I could clearly recognise some distorted vocal fragments from earlier in the rip. Some cache expulsion?
I'd like to check the previous problem rips I got of this CD to see if they fit glitch at the end of the track pattern, but it looks like I've deleted all those files.
This could just be a problem with paranoia and some Matshita drives.

Knucklehead, why are you not using test and copy?

I don't think you'd see a significant ripping speed increase.

If that's truly the case with cdparanoia then I agree with you that the read ahead should not be user-configurable.  It definitely isn't the case for EAC.  If the read ahead was adjustable in EAC, I believe there would be worthwhile speed increase for those with drives that cache more than 64kB but far less than 2MB.
Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

The log report is not incorrect. Forget about the AccurateRip result for a moment. No major errors were found on this track. Only if a read or skip error is found, it is reported as failed. Those are uncorrectable errors. The errors listed below that are minor errors that are usually corrected. This is how cdparanoia has always worked.

No major errors. Corrected minor errors; rip matched with AR. All systems go.

You can, however, choose the "Treat AccurateRip mismatch as an inconsistency in log" option.

I know from compiling different builds of cdparanoia III 9.8 -- each with a different read ahead value -- that you can safely play around with the read ahead values only within certain limits. Drop it too low, the rip results became inconsistent; the speed gain was not what I would call significant either. Take it too high above the read ahead default.... Well, I managed to completely destroy a drive by taking it up far more than is sensible. I just wanted to see what it would do. (Let's just say that I wouldn't recommend doing it!)

I'm not going to pretend to understand precisely why cdparanoia gets wonky when the read ahead values are altered to be far below and/or above its intended default spec, but I did learn that those tolerances are the way they are for a reason. It's a good idea to respect them. A user-configurable read ahead control would do more harm than good.

I see the problem here. In secure test before copy mode, one of the rips is a burst rip; the other is using cdparanoia. This happened before with an earlier XLD version. tmkk needs to fix this again.

Wouldn't this tend to confuse most users a bit more than the existence of the "use old CDParanoia engine" checkbox?

If it's an uncorrectable error, why has the disk ripped every time on this drive without Paranoia with perfect AR matches?

Thanks. I was wondering how the test + copy mode worked. And why the speed difference in the second rip.
