  1. I have a library consisting of 800 albums split between flac and aiff. I’d like to be able to put these in iTunes so that I can use a Mac as portable device/ backup/secondary server. Anyway I’ve used xld to convert flac files to aiff and transfer to iTunes, but haven’t been able to get the original aiff files over. Is there a setting in xld, that allows me to transfer only the original aiff files over? In retrospective simplest would be to have xld replace the existing flac files in the original folder with the converted files, then copy and paste, but I was loathe to get rid of
  2. Does somebody know how it works? I've set the drive speed control (preferences>CD rip>Drive speed control) to 'Limit to 4x' (instead of automatic) but the ripping is done by approximately 10 to 12 x. I thought I limited the cd ripping process to 4x though. It doesn't matter if I set the ripper mode to CD Paranoia or XLD secure ripper.

  4. Kirk, previously, I checked out the “The complete guide to using iTunes with lossless audio.” When I started reading your articles over five years ago. I experimented and ripped some CDs to Apple Lossless with a variety of apps. Sometime I would create a 320 version, or rip to lossless with these apps and also iTunes. I haven’t noticed that much difference between the various programs, but I “believe” that some louder. While I have stuck with XLD among those apps, I have been using iTunes almost exclusively for the last year. Is it better to rip to Apple Lossless using iTunes — I probabl
  5. i have engaged in a rip journey to transform the cd piles in wav files on a synology media server DSP214play now, the whole ripping and tagging process it is not exactly a breeze, it looks more more like a trial & error process or a steeplechase race... whilst consulting the fifth edition (2015) of robert harley's audio guide i read with amazement on p 220 'the downside of wav is that they have no provision for embedded metadata ... you could create a large music library as wav files on an nas drive ... only to discover that the metadata disappears when your drive is connected to
  6. I was ripping some of my CDs on my old macbook using XLD. I found that task quite boring and since the optical drive in my old laptop died and my new MacBook Pro doesn't have one I have not done any ripping recently. Presently I am mostly downloading or streaming and listening to my CDs via my CD transport which sounds better than any ripping I did. I like the simple physical act of getting up and searching for a CD instead of being on my computer but ripping has the advantage that one can use these files on different devices like my DAP (AK120) or my SD-trans 384(restricted to WAV) or a futur
  7. I've been happily using XLD for a couple of years. Starting a few days ago, it gives the message "error has occurred in the encoder" for every track I try, whether from a CD, or a file of another format. Luckily I'd just finished virtually all of my CDs...but not quite all. I'm usually resourceful enough with the google for problem-solving, but I don't see anything out there that's useful, or any kind of xld users forum. Anyone else having problems?
  8. Im trying to rip a official soundtrack cd to flac and have set the file naming in preferences to %A - %y - %T [%f]/%n - %t which produces the flac files in the wrong order (the cd details are not available on freedb.freedb.org and I am having to enter the details manually. When I try %A - %T (%y) [%f]/%n - %a - %t I get three different folder. Please could you let me know what naming format I should use to get the tracks in the correct order and in one file.

  10. Hello all - recently traded my Marantz SA8004 for an HD Dac1 and decided that I wouldn't buy a new CD player in that I have all of 2 SACD's and can rip the rest of my CD's to my hard drive to play through Audirvana. I've just started doing that using XLD and while it's outputting what appear to be flawless folders - all tracks present and in the proper order - when I import them into Audirvana they are missing tracks or are mislabeled in a strange way. For instance, ripped the XRCD of Quiet Kenny the other day. All tracks were perfect in the folder but when imported the first track was mi
  11. Hi All: As I have a huge job ahead of me (many thousands) I've got a Nimbie autoloader and XLD to do the job. I have a nice sized NAS and have yet to conclude if I can rip directly to it or if there is a major benefit to ripping to an internal disk and then moving the files. That said, I've posted what I have for XLD settings so far and would greatly appreciate advice from those who are more knowledgable and have done this prior: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gc79gydprn1fqf3/pbu13k6mA-/XLD
  12. Hi audiophiles! I've some concerns about decompressed and lossless conversions using XLD, MAX and some other software. So for example I have some hi-res FLAC audio files. If I convert them to AIFF, they will add in size as expected. But if after I will compress these new AIFF files back to FLAC the new output files will be significantly smaller than original ones. And if you'll continue this routine the decrease in size of original files also will occur. Depend on software you're using (I've tried XLD and MAX as a mac user, but I know that some win software exhibits same properties) the
  13. Hi guys, I just acquired a macbook pro and have ordered a 1tb external hard drive. I hope to rip my sizable CD collection in Apple Lossless and play through iTunes (possibly getting audiophile plug-ins in future). I am wondering which ripping software is best? iTunes is most convenient but I want accurate rips(I don't want to rip again), so should I use a program like XLD? I don't have access to a windows machine or I'd just rip with dbPoweramp.
  14. hi, I have a huge collection of cds and complete albums on flac 1. Im a mac user and I really like itunes for play and organice my music... 2. I want rip all my cds 3. I want play my flacs on itunes, but itunes dont play flac so... I thinking convert all to AIFF, I mean rip all my cds on AIFF and convert all the FLACs on AIFF why AIFF? well I think is the whole full thing... uncompress and maybe more standard format than ALAC, and AIFF keep tags. but so... my questions: 1. is a really good idea convert all to AIFF? I read around that apple plan a new format or so
  15. I have new, recently discovered (introduced?) problem. I used XLD successfully to rip my CDs into FLAC. My file name happens to be %A/%T/%n - %t but this doesn't really matter. What I noticed recently that XLD introduced two redundant layers in the generated directory structure. See attached On another Mac (and on my Mac last year) it works fine. I tried to install/re-install, no good. This is MacOS 10.14 (but it didn't work on Yosemite either. All help (guesses, tips) much appreciated!
  16. I've got several HD albums, of varying lossless quality. I'm using an iMac (2013, i7) with Audirvana Plus and an external DAC. My iPods are the iPod Classic, 4th Gen iPod Touch, 6th Gen iPod nano, iPad Air, and iPhone 5S. I've converted all my higher quality Apple Lossless files to 24/48 and 24/44.1 Apple Lossless (depending upon the original sample rate) using XLD. Questions: 1. Will all the iPods play those bit rates @ 24bit depth? 2. Am I correct in assuming that the highest quality files that will play on iPods is 24/44.1 & 24/48? The 4th Gen Touch will probably
  17. Does anyone have any ideas on whether XLD can be used with other databases than freeDB or musicbrainz? And if so, how to do it? I have over 3000 classical CD's to rip and the lack of proper and consistent metadata for classical music is a challenge.. The Kaleidescape system really seems to be doing a pretty good job and uses the All Music Guide, but I have no idea if it is possible to integrate AMG-based data with XLD for ripping. I have searched high and low on the forums for answers but could not find any. If I missed something please let me know. Thanks!
  18. Hi Based on what I have found on this site, I have adjusted the settings of the software I am running on my Macbook Pro 13' model summer 2012. I am planning on using XLD to rip CD's and playback via Bit Perfect / iTunes. For now, all music will be stored on the local hard drive of my Macbook. I am using an optical toslink/SPDIF connection between my MacBook and my BelCanto DAC (C5i). I am looking for feedback on the settings I made in XLD and what settings I should change in iTunes, although I guess that the iTunes settings do not really matter anymore since I am using Bit Perfect.
  19. Hi, I have some questions. I apologize if this has already been addressed and also I'm sorry for all of the info but I want to be thorough. Objective: Rip CD collection in highest quality possible to lossless format (as yet undefined). Factors: ~ I'm on a Mac and from what I've read XLD is the best option for accurate rips. ~ I want to be able to tag my files with Artist, Track name, etc. and want compatibility with iTunes without plugins or workarounds, so FLAC is not an option for me. ~ My music is mostly electronic and hip hop (not sure if this makes a difference when choosing
  20. As part of my conversion and upgrade of computer audio, I'm re-ripping my CD collection. I inherited a formidable classical collection, which definitely complicates the process. It's remarkable how inconsistent the metadata is, even within the same multi-disc sets. Unfortunately my methodology has evolved as I've ripped, as I've uncovered nuances of inconsistency, even after studying advice and case studies on CA, so I've already lost consistency in my process, but the main thing is to get the music "in there," then fine tune it later. The wonderful thing is that all that classical music
  21. It's a royal pain to rip and decode/uncompress/convert DTS-HD on a Mac, especially with BD+ discs. Right now, my solution is: 1. MakeMKV to backup the disc. 2. MakeMKV to make an MKV of the desired program from the backup, converting DTS-HD to FLAC. 3. MKVtools to extract the FLAC stream from the MKV file. 4. DVD Audio Extractor to extract a FLAC file plus cue from the desired program using the backup. 5. Replace DVDAE FLAC file with MKVtools FLAC file, renaming if necessary. For what it's worth, the stable version of Cog—0.07 (r635), the only computer software I use for playing F
  22. I'm converting a DSD 64 album download. I'm using XLD and even though I've set the gain adjustment to 6dB, the resultant files are much lower in volume than the originals. I'm using Roon to play back the tracks. Even in Roon the dynamic range graph for the converted tracks is much smaller. When I analyze the converted tracks using Xivero's MusicScope program the loudness measures 6dB less than the original tracks. Is there an XLD plugin I'm missing? Is there a setting I should be using? Whether the conversion is a 8:1 decimation or a converted to a 88 or 176 sample rate (
