Foobar 2000 and AIFF

Hi ...

 

Does anyone know - is there anyway to get Foobar 2000 to read AIFF tags? If not, does any other Windows playback software read AIFF tags?

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

All the latest versions of J.River MC14 do read AIFF with Tags and Album Art und do also read Wave Files with the broadcast extension so also Wave with Tags and Album Art and does also read FLAC with Tags and Album Art. Only ALAC is still in progress with J.River, so with ALAC, Foobar with the ALAC Plug-In will do a better job.

Eloise, and I couldn't find anything either :(

 

I have to say that I have the very same problem with Foobar's handling of wav files. I know tagging, as such, is out anyway, but it seems that any kind of library management is simply not there with uncompressed files.

 

I've just accepted that either I write something myself or put up with doing everything manually from the music folder. The latter option is comfortably within my skill set! ;)

Juergen ... thanks for the suggestion of J.River - my problem is the majority of my files ARE Apple Lossless not AIFF

 

BobH ... that was my conclusion following a root and a google.

 

Looks like I'm going to be sticking with iTunes - only casual use of Windows anyway so it's not a big problem.

it is you tinker from!

 

But please don't go away - I can feel the pull, the lure of the Macbook/iPad is strong in the ether! Man, I want one of those things - I may need all the aiff advice I can get! :)
