Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Accuraterip: Pressing offset

I need help by the interpretation:
Code: [Select]
Track 1: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 12, Pressing Offset -12 [ARv2 CRC E32B721C]
from "Verify album with Accuraterip"
What does Pressing Offset -12 mean?

Pressings, for AccurateRip's purposes, are where a batch of identical audio CDs is created by the pressing plant, then another batch is created, usually at a later date, with the same data but a different offset. The offset is due to variations in the way the master discs are replicated for the pressing machinery. Apart from this offset, discs across pressings are identical; the audio data on them is exactly the same.
There is a different pressing in the database and the offset in samples.
The full line is telling you your rip matches a different pressing when the given offset is mathematically applied.
