Identify badly ripped tracks after the fact


Recommended Posts

So I have been working through my CD collection to rip my collection to FLAC for my new streaming setup running Roon ROCK and and NAS. I am using dbpoweramp so I can see when the software needs to re-rip a track because of issues. My question is, is there a way to identify the quality of a track rip after I have closed out a specific rip report and moved on to other discs? I had a handful of issues like this but I did not think to document or keep notes on which tracks came up with the red X warning in dbpoweramp. These tracks still ripped though. Is there a way to identify suspect tracks after the fact?

Does it really matter if a track has a single or a couple of masked errors on playback if it sounds O.K. without loud clicks or other obvious artifacts ? These minor errors are not going to affect how it sounds overall.  " Bit perfect" is highly overrated .
Besides which they are going to sound a little different anyway, depending on which S/W player you use, and the hardware you use to play them.

 IF you do need to re-rip a CD, first ensure that the disc is squeaky clean with no dust or fingermarks, and there are no pinholes when looking at it with a bright light behind it,  as the error was likely to be caused by the disc itself, not the ripping program or player.

 

How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.

This app from the developer of dbpoweramp appears to check ripped CDs against the AccuraterRip database:
