  1. I need to buy a new turntable, nothing to expensive but I would like a decent turntable. I have an amp with phono preamp so I dont need the turntable to have a built in preamp, I dont need usb or bluetooth. However I play alot of 12" E.Ps as well as albums so I do need a simple 33/45 rpm switch, also I dont mind manually putting the tone arm down but I do need autoreturn when the record finishes, this is because my wife also play records whilst doing things in other rooms and often she just totally forgets about the record when it has finisihed. I really like the look of the Pro-Je

  11. Its not any kind of standard, just a decent free tag editor. Your example/tutorial is very readable and thorough - but to me it just highlights the problem with manual tag editing, its time consuming and error prone. Generally it would better to use autotagger for this kind of work but you say this was a problem with an evaluation Cd , and online databases are incomplete so maybe that is not a possibility. Adding to the list of Mac taggers are our own SongKong and Jaikoz. Note that SongKong provide manual editing for free, and Jaikoz allows access to all functions but just limits

  13. Hi One and a Half Firstly, thanks for taking the time to take a look at Jaikoz. You are correct it would have made more sense to label the records starting from one rather than zero, unfortunately this decision was made back in 2007 and whilst it is planned to set to one that planned change always seems to get usurped by other developments. But it is simply the record number rather than the track number, the track number is a separate editable field. Now if you load some songs into Jaikoz it will show the existing metadata so if the Track No field is empty that simply means that these so

    Why Roon?

    You do have to add the add credits either at recording or release level in MusicBrainz, you cannot add to groups of tracks but apart from that timesaver I don't quite see how MusicBrainz prevents you adding the data you want to add, how the data is actually displayed either by MusicBrainz or Roon may not be quite as you like it but the information can be added to MusicBrainz.
  15. Its worth noting that even if you have the metadata in the Wav file dbPoweramp may only convert the standard basic metadata correctly. Custom metadata such as stored in an ID3 TXXX field will be converted as is which may be incorrect. For example the standard MusicBrainz identifiers are different for ID to Flac so if you convert to Flac you'll have the field converter but it now have the wrong field name. e.g. a MusicBrainz enabled application will expect the ArtistId to be stored as MusicBrainz Artist Id (within a TXXX field) for Wav for Mp3 but as MUSICBRAINZ_ARTISTID for Flac or
