I've personally never worried about SBE & don't know that I'd notice a CD plagued by it. 1/75th of a second? I say meh :)

Used xact 2.0 for the first time the other day to rip flac24->mp3 for someone at work. Freaking awesome stuff Scott!

Blasphemy! And blasphemy again! Time to turn in your lossless audio badge and gun, sir. :P

Yeah, but I mean who really has the time to try and explain lossless audio & all things not-iTunes to a marketing person? :P

Awesome. David said you were like The Wolf in Pulp Fiction. Shows up just in time with tons of gear, does a pro job, and disappears into the night! :-)

it all depends on your player.  some players make an audible click between tracks if they're not cut on sector boundaries.  you'd notice that...

True that.  Both my work computer and the stereo in my truck make the audible click if I somehow miss and sbe.  I use the "snap to" function in Audacity now, though, so no sbe problem any longer either way.  Still always check for sbe just out of habit.

Yeah yeah yeah. . . I'm building an intel Hackintosh, so I'll get to enjoy 2.0 soon enough.  :'(

Oh, you WOULD notice if you heard one.

I always thought it depended more on the burning software. I've never once noticed an SBE with orangebook CD's burned in Toast.

Toast automatically fixes errors when burning and has for years.  but it'll also pad the last track with zeros

Ok, that makes perfect sense. Then you just have to watch out for the SBE at each disc change of a ripped fileset burnt with toast. That would be the only place it would be noticeable. Point being, it's easy enough to use xACT to do the job on the whole fileset at once;D

I just noticed 2 things (xACT 2.06):

1. When encoding to FLAC and with the "Delete original files" box checked, the files are actually deleted completely from the hard drive. In previous versions the files would just be moved to the Trash Bin. Is it possible to change this back so it just moves the files to the Trash Bin?

2. It says "Delete original files after decode" on both the decode and encode tabs.

I kind of like that feature myself

Fair enough. I can understand why. I was just used to the old way and the built in "idiot proofing"....I guess I just need to be more careful!

Just going from memory here, but I think that was a really old version that just moved files to the trash.  I had a bunch of people complain that they thought files were being deleted when they were just in the trash.  They bitched at me saying I was killing their hard drive space.  So I changed it to delete the files.
