I upgraded to dB's latest software (Version 17) and it couldn't read the first 2 discs I was ripping for my music server, and they weren't obscure discs.
It looks like it dumped AppleMusic as a metadata provider (or vise versa).
The ripping processes has also slowed down.
My advise is don't waste your money on the downgrade from v.16 to v.17
The developer(sthingy) is focused on Apple software for now.
dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.3 is solid and works great. The developer is saying this will be the last release of version 14. Beta testing for version 15 will come around christmas.
I ran the converter very easily, but it seems rather peculiar that a 25.767 kb flac file was converted into a 3.706 kb mp4a (AAC) file.
Did I lose some quality?
Both formats are supposed to be lossless, but the difference in size indicates that they do not have the same amount of information.
"Swiss Army Knife"
I have to say that I totally agree with the above poster very useful and easy to get to grips with:)
The trial version is even long enough to rips all your music cds...
