The main window of CUERipper has many settings which can be adjusted as needed:

CUERipper_settings (click image to enlarge, click back button in browser to return)

Contents

(1) Optical drive selection {drop-down list}

Select the optical drive where the CD is inserted.

(2) Metadata selection {drop-down list}

Select the best match from the list. The source of the metadata is indicated by an icon representing freedb, MusicBrainz, Discogs or CUERipper's local database of manually entered info (same icon as CTDB). This area doubles as an optical drive status window when no disc is found.

(3) Meta / Tracks {button}

Click the Meta button to switch to the Meta window. Click the Tracks button to switch to the Tracks window.

(4) Tracks window

Click on track title to quick-edit the title. Click in a column left or right of the track title to bring up an alternate track-edit window to edit the title or artist for the track (the comment field currently isn't working). Click Tracks button to return to Tracks window.

(5) Meta window

Click on a line if you need to edit contents. If Comment is blank, CUERipper will insert version info.

(6) Reload {button}

Reloads program data (same as F5 refresh).

(7) V/A (freeDB only) {button}

Button is DISABLED unless freeDB entry track names are in track artist / title format, then the button parses track artist and title for each track.

(8) Codepage (freeDB only) {button}

Button is DISABLED unless freeDB entries are suspected of being non-unicode, then the button translates them to the local codepage. This rarely happens, and never if your local codepage is latin 1.

(9) freeDB submit {button}

Submit disc to freeDB.

(10) Output path {drop-down list}

Click to edit or select the output path template.

(11) Audio output type {drop-down list}

Select lossy or lossless audio output. Uncompressed WAV is included under lossless audio output.

(12) Extraction type {drop-down list}

Select image (one big audio file) or tracks (an audio file for each track).

(13) Audio file format {drop-down list}

Select file format. List dependent on the (11) Audio output type setting.

(14) Encoder {drop-down list}

Select encoder (if more than one choice is available). List dependent on the (13) Audio file format setting. (See also CUETools FLAC encoders comparison)

(15) Read offset {spinner}

CUERipper should detect read offset correction setting for you. Changing this setting is not recommended.

(16) Test & Copy {checkbox}

Tests all tracks prior to extraction. Test CRC will be added to the extraction log.

(17) Encoder mode {slider}

Slide to the desired mode or compression level. Slider values dependent on the (14) Encoder setting. For lossless codecs this doesn't affect quality, higher modes normally produce smaller files, but extraction can be slower. For lossy codecs higher modes normally produce larger files with better audio quality.

(18) Extraction method {slider}

Slide to the desired mode.

Burst mode = Reads section once. If the drive reports C2 errors, then error correction begins and up to 15 more read retries are done. No CTDB submission will be made because some errors may not have been reported via C2 ("insufficient quality").
Secure mode = Reads section once, then one retry. If results differ or the drive reports C2 errors, then error correction begins and up to 30 more full or partial read retries are done for that section. (See also: (25) Error Correction Progress bar)
Paranoid mode = Reads section once, then two retries. If results differ or the drive reports C2 errors then error correction begins and up to 61 more full or partial read retries are done for that section. (See also: (25) Error Correction Progress bar)

(20) Task messages

(21) MusicBrainz submit {button}

(24) Read progress {bar graph}

(25) Error Correction Progress {bar graph}

Note re: drive feature detection

Some drive features are automatically detected by CUERipper:

  • read offset correction
  • gap detection method
  • support for C2 error reporting

Of these, only read offset correction can be changed by the user.
