MelonbooksDL: I don't have much personal experience with it, since the large majority of the music sold on it is (poor quality) MP3 files, which I'm not really interested in, even if there is bonuses such as scans.
My main complaint is the complete lack of any quality control, some files are WAVs with great scans, are files are untagged MP3 128k files with no scans. You also don't know the quality until AFTER you buy it, you can "guess" the quality by looking at the file size on the page, but it's not entirely accurate, obviously.


Booth.pm: Fairy good for the most part, I mostly use this to order actual physical CDs, which it is VERY good for. It allows you to order physical merch directly from the artists, it's basically a Japanese Bandcamp in that regard, which is very convenient.
One of the problems I have with it is the same reason I dislike MelonbooksDL, there is a lack of quality control for the digital downloads. Booth is MUCH better than Melonbooks in this regard, I find quite a lot of albums contain some form of lossless, but it's 100% possible you will buy an album and it will just be poor quality MP3s, and there is no way to see this BEFORE you buy the album.
It seems to "ecosystem" on Booth is more aware of lossless though, so I find the majority of stuff I buy on Booth does come in lossless, so it's not really a huge issue, but it's somewhat of an oversight.


Bandcamp: Can't really complain about anything with it, it should be the textbook example of a good online storefront, they offer both digital (in basically any format you could ever want), and physical goods, sold directly by the artists, takes a minimal cut (compared to other storefronts). It's just all around good. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of doujin artists on it, compared to the last 2. It seems PayPal really isn't an convenient option for most doujin artists to bother with.


I haven't really used any of those other sites, since as far as I know they only offer lossy files which I'm not really interested in for the most part, and there's not really much on them that I'm interested in anyways.


I think the only other site I've used is DLSite, which is pretty much the same as MelonbooksDL (the site format is even very similar).

I think I'll upload stuff as I rip it this time instead of doing a batch, so if anyone has any request for what to rip first, feel free to ask.

I've looked for this, I can't find it anywhere, even on private sites. I doubt there is a rip available online, it's still in stock on Diverse Direct though if you really need it, they ship overseas.
There are rips of the 2nd album, but I assume you already have those.

You can also try using one of these: https://cddb-155403.appspot.com/ or http://gncddb.azurewebsites.net/
They proxy FreeDB to Gracenote (the database iTunes uses), it has a ton more content than either FreeDB or VGMDB.

I have lossyWAV.exe and flac.exe in "C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\encoders", and I have that added to my PATH, if you don't want to do that you need to include the full path to the encoders ("quoted" if the path has spaces in it)

Is the usual TTA+CUE rip of TOHO EUROBEAT VOL.14 floating around somewhere or has the guy who did that rip like clockwork finally given up?

It's interesting that Vol.14 is now on Alice Books the same Comiket the rip fails to show up.

That guy hasn't been around for years now.

https://github.com/Hakkin/cddb

Been working on this for the past few days, just recently got into Go, thought this would be a nice "first" project (I've ported some of my C programs to Go just to get a feel for the syntax, but this is the first real Go project).
I think it's pretty nice, I really like C but it's basically a pain to make anything in it, Go seems like a slightly higher level C with modern features and an amazing standard library.

I assume you could just add a new format in the Output section of the foobar converter, pointing to the lossyWAV enocder exe.
