    UGGGH Digital Downloads of LIVE IN Series

    I just need to vent a little.....
    I guess its not the end of the world becuase I own all of and prefer the physical CD copies of John Digweed's Live In Series. But recently I decided it would be a good idea to also buy some of the digital mp3 versions on Amazon. I had some gift cards etc and like to play long sets off of a USB drive. I also knew there was some issue with missing tracks on Last Night at Output on Apple music.
    But now I am realize almost all of the Live In digital versions are missing a couple or more tracks...HOW FUCKING ANNOYING IS THAT!!!!!???????
    I mean why the hell chop the man's sets all to hell, I hate that shit. Now I know I have one more reason to buy physical media over digital versions. I have a huge library of downloaded live sets from here on [ms] that are perfectly good recordings and not missing tracks, however when it comes to a commerical release they fuck you on it! Glad I own the physical copies but really would have liked to have that back up of having a digital copy but its not even the same thing. Anyways, just pissed off and don't like them pulling that shit on an artist's work. Screws us all over.

    Why don’t you just rip the CDs?

      Ive ripped all my cds but they never play off of a USB drive without putting a gap in between tracks, so its not continuous like listening to the actual cd. Mostly ripped to be able to make a copy and archive.


      I really just was pissed off that on digital copies they leave tracks out of the mix and its chopped up. The only true way to get the actual full release is to buy the physical copies, which are hard to come by or are expensive, if you dont get them at release time.

        You should have ripped them using iTunes (or whatever it is called now) There is a join tracks function when you insert the cd.

          Somebody from MS told me about this a LONG time ago, but this program works well for extracting files in FLAC format from your cds without any gaps whatsoever....maybe give it a shot. https://www.exactaudiocopy.de/
          called exact audio copy

            ^EAC is the way to go, you don't need to configure it to rip cds without errors but if you have the time it can be made to extract audio in secure mode, all it takes is a little learning curve.

            PS: you download flac from here https://xiph.org/flac/download.html

              Excellent, this changes things. Thank you, Im going to give EAC a try. Can it also rip to WAV file?



              update....
              Dumb question, I see it rips to WAV.
