Mac Daddy,

How does COG handle gaps between songs? 

flawlessly - you dont think i would recommend a proggie that didnt handle the gaps, did you? (actually to hear the guy who codes foobar, they are not gaps, but improperly written software that doesnt play the tracks back to back without an outside crossfade, which is what alot of them do - applying dsp to the tunes by default)

no problem with shn, either...

What I've gleaned from the Tera Station specs is that is can be run with and without redundancy - sounds like at least three different modes.

According to the Buffalo Tech website, the TeraStation supports four modes:



Standard (no RAID) and spanning (RAID 0) will not provide redundancy, mirroring (RAID 1) and Parity Mode (RAID 5) both provide redundancy.

Just a thought for some folks not wanting to mess around with RAID, or wanting to save some money:  pick up multiple discs and do your own automated (non-real time) redundancy handling.  See this thread for more info.

beware the terastation....read buffalos BBB rating and how they won't respond to customers who have crashed hard drives, oh, and they use harddrives with proprietary firmware/programming so if one goes down you have to wait on them before you can restore your array.

bad bad bad

if your not looking to build a unit outright ReadyNAS builds the machines that the terastation should be.

peace, chris

Mac Daddy,

Cog is perfect.  Not only is it gapless, but I can store and sort my playlists in Finder, which is much more user (and eyeball) friendly than searching inside an app.  You also saved me a lot of encoding time.

+T (now that I can)

As far as the RAID stuff goes, I found this drive at mac mall.  $1600 for the 1.6 TB  version.  Does anybody have any experience?  Here's a link:

I won't be buying anything for two more weeks, so I want to hear as much as I can.

Thanks,

Joe

The 750 GB drives are out...  Kinda shakes things up. 

My 24/96 is catching up with me in a big way and I need to Do Something Soon to improve my off-site backups, etc.

  • Install an app like Argentum's Backup ($25) to automate duplicating the data from drive X to drive Y on some fixed schedule (weekly, daily, hourly, whatever suits your purposes)
  • I like Argentum's Backup because it's cheap and has the option to store data in non-proprietary formats (unlike many s/w backup apps)

Note:  I cannot recommend Argentum Backup any longer due to a fatal flaw.  See reasonable redundancy thread for details, including my temporary workaround using a batch file.
