Ok. First of all, I’m not so clueless that I don’t know what I need… I just don’t know where to find it.
I’m having a problem with my music collection. I store all of my music in MP3 format, and in the five years since I started using a computer for my music some of those files have become corrupted. The MP3 static is so obvious when I listen to those files, and yet I can’t find any software that can detect it. All the mp3 checking/fixing/testing software that I can find seems only to detect problems relating to internal data structures of the mp3 headers or sync errors in the stream… junk data… things like that… Does anyone know of any software that can analyze the sound of the file itself, and search for unusual peaks or static-like noise? I really need something like that to find all of the bad mp3s.
