I can recall that some time ago, it was recommended to use RewriteData with stored flac and wav music files. What is the current thinking on this practice? I am still using external USB drive to store music files rather than SSD. Would be grateful for any knowledge that might be shared. Thanks!

 

Please stay safe

Jazz I still use RewriteData as recommended on Minority Clean.  At the same time I rewrite MC, I rewrite the JPlay directory, as well as the directory for my DAC driver.  As for music files, one time I used RewriteData on the whole 5tb usb drive holding my music files.  Took forever and I'm not sure it was worth it.  Today, I have my music files on two 2tb Samsung M.2 ssd drives mostly flac files and dsf.  I only use rewrite on albums and individual songs that I listen to repeatedly to give a slight boost in quality.  I tend to have obsessive phases in my music listening where I will listen to one group or artist over and over, and I will use rewrite on those music files.  I don't have the patience to use rewrite on all files that I listen too, as this would detract too much to the spontaneity of listening to something that just hits my fancy at the moment.   Also, I have a half dozen music files that I use to test the fidelity of my setup, bass, dynamics, clarity, imaging.  I always hit them with rewrite before I test any changes.  Anyway, I thought I would share my RewriteData strategery.

Hello. This is oryaaaaa.
 
The method used in Rewrite data 3.68 is the rewrite access average of the internal circuitry of a memory chip. The recording quality of the SSD is improved in the state of rewrite bits. It is considered to be effective for music files, but it is not need in the Bug head sound engine with digital bit stabilizer process. but, It is explain in the notice that it is require for executables.
 
Rewrite data 3.68 has been developed to the risk of corrupting music files, Rarely, power supply incidents crushed files. For safety reasons, I have considered offering MinorityClean.
 
Rewrite data 3.68, my development environment using Plextor PX-G512M6eA.

Thanks for the replies Griddy99 and oryaaaaa. It would appear that Minority Clean is offered as a safer alternative to Rewrite Data

It seems to me that MC processes the CPU memory registers (perhaps amongst other things) and Rewrite processes the targeted files on pcie ssds to optimise reading, reducing errors and latency. So Rewrite and MC don't operate on the same hardware. Rewrite and dbstabilizer seem to be variations of the same thing.

 

 

I'd like to use Rewrite but have all my music on hdd not ssd. 

I'd like to use it on my os, femto and MC executables. But I run all this in ramdisk not on pcie ssd.

 

But as you know I'm a big fan of MC.

 

oryaaaaa, please correct me if I got anything wrong.  Also, have you tried optimizing HDD or ram as well?

I am using a samsung 860 Pro 2TB SSD (MLC)  for my music files (all at max. 44.1 16 or 24 bit aif files).

After the ripping of an album from CD direct to the drive (all perfectly prepared with dbpoweramp cd grab),

that takes about real-time to rip a cd, but the preperation and warm-up before ripping takes about 3 hrs,

I am then afterwards "perfecting" the rip, again after warm-up with 48 Re-Writes of Rewrite-Data.

I am using for now version 3.19g with High MMX x2. First i make one try of Re-Write in my Ramdisk to

measure the time it takes (on my SSD it is not slower), then i use this plus additional 30 secs in a programm

called GS Autoclicker 3.1.2 to do the un-attended job of clicking Re-Write Data 48x with the correct interwall.

On my 4x 2.00 Ghz Intel Xeon E3 1235L it takes usually between 70-90 minutes for the Re-Writing process of

one Album, again after warm-up. Why do i take all that time to do this? I have found no other solution (yet) to

gain that kind of "perfect" sound.

If i am just downloading an album from the internet, i usually download it first in the Ramdisk and run some infinite

numbers of rewrite first (turn on before i get to sleep), before i re-tagg it, use some more Re-Writing afterwords and

finally convert it and send it the same time to my music drive. After that and 48x Re-Writes later, i am done... ;)

A i crazy, or am i just an perfectionist? Try it youself, before you judge me!

Hi Bernie, do you have a link or the latest version of rewrite data? I can't find it, thanks

 Download the latest bughead software package from here:

 

https://www.mics.ne....Bughead_x64.zip

 

Unpack the zip file and you will find a folder for rewrite data 3.78

Sorry, i am too late. Have you tested it yet that latest version? Any feedback?

BTW. I would like to test it too, but that link did not work anymore.
