Batch Converter: lists file sizes for symbolic linked files

Naming, if using [origdrive][origpath][origfilename] then filename not touched (previously a filename 'abc .flac' would change to 'abc.flac' and not overwrite existing
New Naming value [multitag], if had multiple album artists and want the whole list in the filename then can use [multitag]album artist[] and it would return Artist1; Artist2

Replaygain: advanced page option to set the maximum gain value, previously a very quiet track would not have track gain or album gain written

CD Ripper

Graphic overlap improvements
Smarter handling of metadata if read from CDText, UPC and ISRC when blending with PerfectMETA

m4a FDK updated to 2.0.1
Ogg Vorbis updated to (Ogg v1.3.4 Vorbis V1.3.6)
m4a decoder: works with symbolic linked files
DSD Tag writer, saves in Unicode
ID3v2 tags TBPM now mapped to BPM

Bug Fixes

Scripting was not working
If the option to use a specific temporary folder was used, it was possible for temporary files to be saved not in this folder (in %tmp%) which could fail when later in encoding process
Flac was detailed as '1.3.3 beta' when in fact it was 1.3.3
Music Converter when finishing would leave old 'Writing ID Tags' message under the cpu encoder line
Multi-encoder was not working correctly always with dynamic naming for music converter
CD Ripper can rip direct to .dsf files, if the option to write to temp ._ files is on
If installed 32 bit dBpoweramp in 64 bit Windows, then would not allow edit id tags
CD Ripper track listed could still show composer if removed from manual metadata review page
Manual Discogs release lookup could fail
Naming [REPLACE] and [SPLIT] now use <comma_> rather than , to signify comma to replace or split on, this allows empty strings to be set for replace, to replace space with nothing: [replace] ,,[artist][]
Flac and m4a tagging can write tags where is no track number, but only a track count
Batch Converter 'reset' button would crash program
Pre-emphasis was not always working
DSP Move Destination File On Error not working correctly with default naming (missing drive)

Using this has proved to me conclusivelythat mp3 is the best of all for music and king. Running high bitrate enodings through Magic Audio Cleaning Lab proved 100% that aac is noisier codec and produces more artifacts than acoustically tweaked mp3. Converting CD's to aac always produced hiss, clicking etc using any CD ripper or audio converting tool as a control check. With dBpoweramp mp3 comes out perfectly. Best to use 192kbps and above! Love that format still!

I use dbPowerAmp as the converter since it is the best
I convert to mp3 (Lame Averate Bit Rate 40)
You might be able to further deduce the bit rate by going to aa format
I canít see why you would want to concatenate the chapters. It serves no purpose but adds another process to your audio and extra work for you. Why put it inside a m4a or mp4 container? That again serves no purpose and limits what you can play it on.

You canít continue to process lossy files without effecting their quality. If you are lucky, you only suffer a loss of fidelity, if not you can produce artifacts. Most will render your audio unusable since they are very loud and can hurt your ears and or blow out your speakers. For that reason I convert to mp3 since most devices play them.

For instance, I cut a ape file into tracks. They sounded perfect. Then I converted them to mp3s. The audios were riddled with horrible artifacts. Then I tried converting the ape file to an mp3 file then cut that into tracks and the audio was fine. The thing is, had I kept the ape tracks and deleted the original one I would never have been able to reduce the bit rate. You canít always hear if you have ruined an audio file until you try to peocess it again. I suggect doing as little as possible to any audio file.

It's actually really great!

The CD ripper is accurate, it has a great and fast encoder, and has a great TAG editor.

Worth your dollars.


Review by iohanntachy on Oct 29, 2015 Version: R15.3 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 10/10




Although R15 is 64bits native, the codecs are not (all of them) working for both 32/64bits. From all the supplementary codecs (that are not included in the installation pack) I'm most impressed by the mp3 Helix codec (about 4x faster than Lame), and unfortunately this one is not supported by x64 systems... Maybe Spoon (Da Man) will work around this issue; till than I suggest you stick to R14.4.

I purchased this several months ago and am very happy with it. Some of tools like the converter or cd burner can be found elsewhere but where this really shines is the CD ripper. There is nothing as secure other than Exact Audio Copy and still this is much faster. If you have a modern dvd/cd drive like most people the tool might not seem to be as useful. I can rip most CDs with freac or foobar2000 just fine but I find this is faster and I just feel better knowing that it's an exact copy even if I'm getting exact copies with other tools. For me there are no problems with the audio no matter what I encode it in unless there is a problem with the disc itself. The cd data lookup is also better than any program out there.

One thing I noticed is on their website they act like they are a small company with several people. I think this is pretty common way of trying to sell your product online. I don't have any proof really other than a hunch but I suspect it's probably a one man operation. That's fine it's a great product and I certainly got and getting my moneys worth with it.
