Welcome to Standards and Practices Day in the Tyrannosaurus Mouse.
Actually, today's issues involve putting Prague Spring music up on Bandcamp so that our friend Ed can have his "Best Of" album. This work is being done while other machines are rendering.
Ripping music from my own CD's is not quite as easy as I'd hoped. But now I'm using Exact Audio Copy. Nevermind the spammy ads on their website, it comes well recommended. And although it won't actually fix the little glitches I'm getting in the song "Real World", at least it'll tell me that Real World needs to be fixed (and since the glitches appear in different places each time I rip the song I can edit together an unglitched version.
I've been trying to figure out the best naming scheme for ripped songs. There is advice on the Internet about this:
Artist/Album/track* - tracktitle
if the album is multidisc (like Beatles white album), I like:
Artist/Album/Disc 1/track* - tracktitle
[and I replaygain the entire album (all discs) as an album so the album gain is the same for all the discs....e.g., a 3 disc grateful dead show which is a single concert
If album is compilation disc, I use:
Compilations/Album/track* - tracktitle
(with /disc 1, etc. after album for multidisc sets)
