Sorry, but I hate FB more than politics.  ;)

 

So good ol' RSS it is!  ;)

So... I had always had tracking problems with BitPerfect. Often, the first eight seconds of a track would play, then repeat over and over. It also had issues moving from track to track. Happened on both my 2009 MacBook Pro at home and my 2011 MacBook Pro at work.

 

Happily, this latest release seems to have fixed both issues. I love the fact that BitPerfect runs so quietly in the background -- set it and forget it -- and now that I'm no longer having playback issues I expect it to become my preferred iTunes playback add-on.

I never had these tracking problems but I rememebr having had some kind of problems in the past which made me switch to one of the other players I had.

Not sure what the problems were anymore, I probably mentioned them somewhere in this thread.

But the latest few versions of BitPerfect have solved them in any case.

As I said, really nice app, takes care of what I need and let's me use iTunes which is what I want.

 

Give it a review on the app store if you like it so more people that aren't on this forum can benefit from it as well. It didn't have any reviews yet so I posted one. I really think this app is worth it and for what it costs a lot of people can try it out.

My 09 MBA died last night, looking at a $500 repair...will buy a new one instead when my financial aid kicks in a month from now. Not gonna spend close to half of what a new one costs for an oooold professor and just 2GB of ram. Getting 8GB of RAM on the new one, I should def. not have any problems playing anything on that!

post #1611 of 2399

Good Choice! I had dropouts playing High res files on my 2010 macbook and recently added another 4gb of ram (8gb total) and i have no problems playing anything regardless of what else i have the computer do!

My school allows a one time, $2000 computer loan that can be added to your financial cost of attendance, which means they offer it to you in student loans, only reason I'll be getting it. If that didn't exist, I wouldn't feel right spending 70% of my refund on a laptop, I'd just get a cheap netbook probably.

Great to hear you've got assistance like that available!

Are there any drawbacks to having BitPerfect launch on startup of the Mac and keeping it running all the time?

It only works for sound coming from iTunes, right? Has no influence on sound from a QuickTime or YouTube video for example?

I don't see any problems doing that, and yes, it only works with tracks being played by iTunes.

Thanks, will continue using it that way then. Talk about set and forget. :)

Hey people, I am new to OSX and would love for a recommendation for an alternative to iTunes. I am using Clementine but it is really slow....

 

BTW - Can iTunes stay in sync with a certain directory?

 

Thanks.

I wonder if it's actually possible to sell licenses to others for apps you don't use anymore.

I have 3 Amarra licenses and one for Audirvana and the full Fidelia.

 

Anybody knows?

Can anyone tell me if the soundcard from imac mid 2011 (27") is a good sound card?

 

The name is:  "Cirrus Logic CS426A (AB 32)"

 

Also anyone knows how to get the best audio out of my imac? (I'm on bootcamp Windows 7)

 

Thanks

post #1620 of 2399

iTunes + BitPerfect, forget about the soundcard. and get an extarnal USB dac.

Why on earth would you want to use Windows to play music on your Mac?
