Which metadata management software?


Recommended Posts

EAC for ripping.

dbpoweramp for converting and evaluation of replaygain values.

MP3TAG for all (other) metadata.


@ted_b: I record my SACDs using a modified Pioneer DV-989AVi player (see audiopraise.com) and capturing a 24bit/88kHz SPDIF signal via Lynx AES16 and Samplitude 11.

No I haven't modded the Cary. I just leave the xlr output plugged into an Alesis Masterlink and record 24/96. It will get the hi rez stuff onto the computer for convenience, and really sounds pretty good, but I still have to spin SACD's for critical listening.


Does Mp3tag work with AIFF? It doesn't list that file type on their website.

or WAVPack with it, then convert to AIFF (although lately I am going WAV instead of AIFF for sonic reasons,. but metadata support is of course problematic. I have posts in other threads about remedying that, though).


In what way is the Masterlink grabbing your SACD data without a mod? My interpretation is that it's not, it's grabbing the redbook layer and then even upconverting to 24/96. Not hirez, and no offense but that's not anywhere near SACD recording/ripping. Am I missing something?
