True Gapless Mode is turned off

True Gapless Mode (seamless conversion) is one of a clickless technologies applied in AuI ConverteR. Intended for albums where the next track of the same album is a continuation of the previous track. It's albums that are like live concerts, operas.

Also, for some SACD ISO albums where present DC offset, True Gapless Mode is recommended.

True Gapless Mode is used for both ISO to PCM and ISO to DSF conversion.

Such tracks should be processed in the album order. True Gapless Mode processes only one ISO's track simultaneously.

Other ISO albums, where pauses (zero level) and/or absent a "stair" on track borders, can be extracted without True Gapless Mode.

In the main AuI ConverteR's window > Parameters tab, True Gapless Mode switch should be unchecked.


Pass by extracting temporary *.dff files

In Settings > CD ripper/ISO tab > uncheck "Use temporary DFF files" switch.

If there are extracting issues, check the switch again.
