Edition of Properties before ripping CD [#15680]

Post by gamb2009 » Fri May 10, 2019 8:04 am

There is a MM4 missing feature in MM5 when you rip a CD: the edition of Properties of the tracks before the track files are created.

I mean, when you insert a CD in your PC and MM5 searches freedB and gathers succesfully the basic information, there is always the opportunity to select all tracks, right-click over them to select "Properties" from the pop-up menu, and fill in all extra information (common to all the selected tracks) like "Genre", "Composer", etc., or even, make any required corrections to the freedB gathered data.

Then, you can start your rip. But then, you find that all that editing is completely missed and did not arrive to the newly created track files. I am talkin about flac files, that certainly can hold the data in its tags. Is MM5 that does the ripping with just the freedB data, exclusively.

This feature, to edit Properties before ripping, was available before, in MM4.

It would be very nice to have it back.

Thanks!

Hi,
Can you please confirm that same thing Happen If you scan CD into MM5 Library, then edit properties and only then you do a RIP?

I haven't tested myself yet, but added to my TODO list as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=15680 and going to look into it shortly.

Yes, Peke. That is excatly the issue. After MM5 has scanned the CD and you edit the properties, and then you do the Rip, the only property that is registered in the newly created track files is "Genre". For instance, if in the editing process (before the rip starts) you add "Composer", "Artist", "Director", etc., these fields become empty after the ripping.
