Just been playing around with the above. Anyone using slimserver should check this out for ripping. Still in beta, but it is very stable and functional. The only feature I am personally waiting for is a multi-encoder (encode simultaneously to two codecs).

Key benefits for slimserver users:
Retrieves album art at point of ripping and names it "folder.jpg" (how cool is that !)
You can specify "album artist" tag when ripping,... great for compilations.
Makes great use of dual core processors.

Go to

and download from the Beta section.

I did a quick check of the new version, as I'd tried the old version a while back and this claims to have been a near-re-write.

It's incorrectly encoding its ID3v2.3 tags and thus may play incorrectly on MP3 players. Specifically, where an ID3v2.3 APIC frame is encoded (cover art embedded within the file) it does not take steps to apply the unsynchronisation scheme (ID3v2.3 section 5, whose use is indicated by bit 7 of the ID3v2 tag flags, described in section 3.1). Without such unsynchronisation playback may result in static, blips or other undesired artifacts at the start of the track at best, and for players which cannot cope with malformed MP3 frames may result in crashes or other undesireable behaviour.

The TCOM (composers) frame value is incorrectly formed. It is using CR (byte 13) to indicate delimited frames. The correct separator is a '/' character (section 4.2.1, frame 'TCOM').

I'm sure this is an issue for some, but for my personal setup, I haven't run into any tagging difficulties.

I guess usual caveat's apply.... but all works fine for my personal setup. (SB3 and Creative ZVM)

I use DBPowerAmp for my ripping and I really like it. Have used all the R12 releases and they have been stable since early alpha. My music is ripped to Flac.

I like extra control of tagging so tend to re-tag after ripping with MP3tag
