Hi, I just searched for doublons/clones in my flac collection with cuetools & CloneSpy (a clone finder software) & I happened to find something strange: a clone with an overall different checksum (so technically CloneSpy doesn't detect it as a clone) [Edit: My collection is only made CDImage.flac] but with all matching checksums against the accuraterip database & with a very high confidence for all tracks. So the data is obviously the same ... but there is a problem: the CRC for track 1 with or without silence at the end of the log doesn't match, hence the overall checksum difference & the non detection as an exact clone by CloneSpy. So my question is: am I right to interpret this situation as a non-detected scratch (or truncated audio) in one of the 2 rips ? I mean a scratch (or truncated audio) located in the 5 first frames of the rip which accuraterip might ignore ? (I know AR ignore the last 2940 samples but does it also ignore the first 2940 samples which might be the problematic part in my case). Is my interpretation of the problem right ? or is there another explanation ?

Here is a copy/paste zoom in the problematic part of the logs:
Log1: All tracks accurate

--    [BB8A18D4]    [C665239A]    
01    [52E2E723]    [303E0CCB]

Log2: All tracks accurate same checksums for individual tracks in the beginning except at the end:

Note:
The album is Pantera - 1992 - Vulgar Display Of Power original pressing
& I know that:
CODE
Track    [ CRC32  ]    [W/O NULL]    
--    [BB8A18D4]    [C665239A]    
01    [52E2E723]    [303E0CCB]

is the good checksum if one of the 2 is bad. (I compared my own rip with several 3rd party rips as I own the CD ... it's one of the best heavy metal album of all time)

So the question is not which one is the good rip but rather what is happening technically & why a rip which, at first look, is perfectly accurate rip is in fact maybe damaged.

I am worried because it was one of the very first doublon I found ... so it might not be such an exception ... I am scarred to search further now ...

Edit: By the way, we need an april update of the database Spoon smile.gif

You're welcome, sauvage78, I'm happy to help.

I'm not sure what version of Audition you use. For those just using it for audio, it turned into some pretty serious bloat-ware after 1.5, IMO (I'm still using 1.0).

To zoom I just use the buttons in the bottom row. There are a pair to zoom in and out in amplitude, five that allow you to zoom in time (in, out, selection, right edge of selection, left edge of selection), and one to zoom out to show the full waveform once again.

To subtract one waveform from another, you just perform a mix-paste ctrl+shift+v and select the L and R invert checkboxes. Depending on what I'm doing, I'll usually load multiple waves in the multi-track editor and slide one relative to the other to time-align.

I've been using this program since back when it was Cool Edit Pro, so I take these types of things for granted. Because I am so used to this program I have never liked using any other editors. I've tried Audacity on many occasions. Besides this problem with dithering (which makes it a non-starter for me) I would never claim that it is a bad program, just that I have difficulty working within it because I'm so accustomed to Audition. Who knows though, it took a while and now I've warmed up to Mp3tag after using TagScanner for such a long time.
