What’s NEW in dBpoweramp Reference Portable:

Better handling of centring when opened from Total Commander

ID Tag editor: if set a tag value to “” then it is removed

File Properties >> Audio Property Tab – for multiple selected files displays the art from the first file
File Properties >> ID Tags, ‘…’ button is placed on next line
File Properties >> ID Tags Art Description Shortened

Batch Converter: lists file sizes for symbolic linked files

Naming, if using [origdrive]\[origpath]\[origfilename] then filename not touched (previously a filename ‘abc .flac’ would change to ‘abc.flac’ and not overwrite existing
New Naming value [multitag], if had multiple album artists and want the whole list in the filename then can use [multitag]album artist[] and it would return Artist1; Artist2

Replaygain: advanced page option to set the maximum gain value, previously a very quiet track would not have track gain or album gain written

CD Ripper
Graphic overlap improvements
Smarter handling of metadata if read from CDText, UPC and ISRC when blending with PerfectMETA
New option >> options >> active providers >> ‘manual metadata search if no metadata’ on by default
Defaults to Windows Built-in if ripping on Windows Server
Manual metadata search will read album art from musicbrainz
Reads artists better from discogs on various artist cds

Preserves carriage returns in the tags for CUESHEET and EACLOG tags
Wavpack updated to 5.3.0
m4a FDK updated to 2.0.1
Ogg Vorbis updated to (Ogg v1.3.4 Vorbis V1.3.6)
m4a decoder: works with symbolic linked files
DSD Tag writer, saves in Unicode
ID3v2 tags TBPM now mapped to BPM

Bug Fixes
Scripting was not working
If the option to use a specific temporary folder was used, it was possible for temporary files to be saved not in this folder (in %tmp%) which could fail when later in encoding process
Flac was detailed as ‘1.3.3 beta’ when in fact it was 1.3.3
Music Converter when finishing would leave old ‘Writing ID Tags’ message under the cpu encoder line
Multi-encoder was not working correctly always with dynamic naming for music converter
CD Ripper can rip direct to .dsf files, if the option to write to temp ._ files is on
If installed 32 bit dBpoweramp in 64 bit Windows, then would not allow edit id tags
CD Ripper track listed could still show composer if removed from manual metadata review page
Manual Discogs release lookup could fail
Naming [REPLACE] and [SPLIT] now use <comma_> rather than , to signify comma to replace or split on, this allows empty strings to be set for replace, to replace space with nothing: [replace] ,,[artist][]
Flac and m4a tagging can write tags where is no track number, but only a track count
Batch Converter ‘reset’ button would crash program
Pre-emphasis was not always working
DSP Move Destination File On Error not working correctly with default naming (missing drive)
