Bridging through iTUNES also, does NOT work.
BEATPORT AIFF METADATA SUPPORT! PLEASE!
BEATPORT: Now offering AIFF lossless audio format, metadata and cover art all in one file
Posted on September 21, 2011
“What is AIFF?
AIFF stands for Audio Interchange File Format. Basically, an AIFF file has all the convenience of an MP3, containing metadata and cover art, with the audio quality of an uncompressed “lossless” format like WAV.
In fact, AIFF is the same uncompressed, lossless, PCM ( Pulse Code Modulation) format as a WAV, but includes support for data “chunks” such as ID3 metadata and cover art. There are several data chunks supported by AIFF and Beatport is providing all available metadata as ID3v2.4 tags which can be read by most popular software applications.”
Just tried a few downloads and the metadata does NOT work in Rekordbox.
Um.... All my tracks recently have been .AIFF format ever since i had beattagger to exchange Wav beatport files to .aiff.
I have no issues on Rekordbox using .aiff format files from beatport specifically.
i use the lateast RB version with the Latest CDJ firmewares.
I Bridge it through Itunes as well
The data beatport is supplying is:
- Cover Art
- Track Name (Mix Name)
- Release Year
- Track Order (Sequence)
As of right now, none of these transfer into Rekordbox on import.
They all transfer into iTunes (except key, cause there's no key column)
Only the title and artist transfer over when using "Bridge" in Rekordbox.
I'm not saying the AIFF file don't work. They're fine, but all of this tagging can be done by Rekorbox for sure, and** I wouldn't even have to input key anymore.**
Import. Done. Everything there. No more hours spent tagging and writing in information. PLEASE!
Color and comments is all I would have to do. Just imagine, I could actually start spinning 15 minutes after I downloaded my tracks! omg heaven.
<sigh> Do we really need 15 threads covering the same thing? It's coming! V1.6 will have AIFF support.
