A few of the CDs found in the downloads section (and elsewhere) are particularly stubborn when it comes to exploring them

L-CDP-12 Solo Brass: Awave gives out a "Bad cluster number" error for a single waveform - found elsewhere but annoying. CDXtract works fine (but AWave is infinitely better)

LA Composer vol. 3 is almost completely broken: AWave doesn't detect it as a Roland S-7xx CD and neither does the official Fantom-X converter. CDXtract can open it but it doesn't recognize it as a Roland CD either and the file/folder structure looks (?) broken. I've tried 3 different sources and they all lead to the same results. A partial workaround is to export everything in .gig format and re-import it with AWave (but most brass samples have a very annoying hiss, probably since you can't manually select the de-emphasis filter in CDXtract if it doesn't recognize the CD as a Roland one)

Edit: Chickensys detects it as an EMU disk. Of course it's as useless as ever.

    Oh yeah it works there now, I didn't use awave because it doesn't really have any useful formats for what I'm trying to do right now (though at this point I might as well get to work and Frankenstein an XS/XF version of this library)

    Wasn't in my plans but might as well

    I did try to convert the version from archive.org to something more usable like GIGA (played by g-player or by exs24) but that went horribly wrong

  • N (Guest) Notxeraser:
    G-player under logic (at least 2.0) is buggy as all hell

    If it works for you, I guess it's fine. It really did not look to me like there was anything wrong with the ISO, after the track mode change.

    Oh no the iso is fine, thanks for that

    If the archive.org version is the one I think it is, it's exactly the same as the rutracker one.

  • N (Guest) Notxeraser:
    Guess it was just a very sloppy conversion job to get it to fit on an AKAI CD

  • A (Guest) anon:
    And it looks like it's also the same as the magesy one, too.

    it's half the size

    Seems to have less programs too

    I don't know, I have three or four versions I got from different places.

  • N (Guest) Notxeraser:
    The archive.org one should be a little over 200mb
    Quote Link
  • A (Guest) anon:
    You are right that the archive.org one was smaller. It also was an ISO, and not a bin+cue.
    Quote Link
  • A (Guest) anon:
    Yup.
    Quote Link
  • N (Guest) Notxeraser:
    Yeah forgot to mention it was an iso
    Quote Link
  • A (Guest) anon:
    Anyway, the AKAI stuff itself does not look particularly wrong. If anything, I guess something went wrong when ripping it; but it's really strange that it would result in a cue file with the wrong track type.

    What's Mode 2 used for anyway? Never gave it a single thought
    Quote Link
  • N (Guest) Notxeraser:
    with that said I haven't burned a CD in well over a decade

  • N (Guest) Notxeraser:
    I think the last time I did it was to burn a copy of SSBB to a DL DVD for some reason

  • A (Guest) anon:
    I'm not sure. I think it's something to do with CD-XA.

  • A (Guest) anon:
    Essentially, mixing CD-ROM and CD-DA tracks in a single CD.

  • A (Guest) anon:
    Not sure what mode 2 would have to do with skipping the first 8 bytes, however.
