I’m currently working on a compilation of Verdi operas (https://musicbrainz.org/release/9bcd75dd-995e-482b-8ba7-1ef074d253de). I’m adding the discIDs one by one using ripit on an ArchLinux (http://www.suwald.com/ripit/news.php). However, for some CDs, ripit recognizes the DiscID as being the one of another release (https://musicbrainz.org/release/7b2e4035-60e5-414d-af06-f0d31a0b96d4) which contains the same recordings (a mass merge is pending) but it’s still not the same release. So is there a way to manually add the discID to the compilation since I can’t do it with ripit? More generally, would you recommend a CD ripper that is well compatible with MB?
FTR, that’s the way ripit is dealing with releases and MB:
Checking for a DB entry @ MusicBrainz.org…
