Subcode pre-emphasis on CDs 2020-07-31 03:09:48 The excellent wiki has this to say about pre-emphasis on CDs.QuoteA pre-emphasis flag for each track is normally stored in the subcode along with the audio data. It's also supposed to be stored in the table of contents (TOC), but many CDs have TOCs that say there's no pre-emphasis when in fact the subcode says there is. There are also some CDs which people believe were mastered with pre-emphasis, but which have no pre-emphasis flags set at all. My understanding is that a CD player will still apply pre-emphasis to a CD that has subcode pre-emphasis flags, but doesn't have TOC pre-emphasis flags.Is there any software which can detect subcode pre-emphasis flags? I know EAC only detects it if it's in the TOC. I've been doing some Googling and I find different posts about dBPowerAmp. So posts say it will do it. Others say it will not.And before you ask, yes I have old CDs pressed in Japan for US sales that I want to make sure I rip properly.
