  • I did not know about freedb.org. I've been converting vinyl and putting 01SongTitle1, 02SongTitle2 in the label track marks, and exporting to files based on those names. I did find that I couldn't type "z" in the label text though (??). So no songs with a "z" in them for me :-) (I've really just been using an "s" instead).

    I just did a search on freedb for the last record I converted, and didn't find it. I didn't even find the artist at first, 'cuz I was looking for "Pearl Harbour and the Explosions", and I accidentally typed "Perl"...go figure :-)

    Actually a lot of what I'm converting I'm not finding on freedb...maybe I should whip up some perl to submit data...

    • The "Search" on freedb.org is really bad, IMO. I usually have to click through some pages until I find the metadata I'm looking for.

      And I'm not sure if submitting data generated from vinyl will work, because the whole point of freedb and all this CD-autometadata-thingy is that they take a checksum of the CD and use it to look up the correct track listings (/me thinks...)
