MAREO settings for FLAC + LAME
Can someone help me with MAREO settings for MP3s at LAME's Extreme preset plus FLAC at the highest compression setting?

I'm having trouble...

"could not find e:\classic\Mathew Locke - Gavott.wav"

is the error I get in MAREO.  The FLAC is fine, though.

the source file on line 2 (E:\classical\flac\Mathew Locke - Gavott.wav) is wrong, the source should be the same as the one in line 1 (E:\classical\flac\Mtmp7898(.wav).

I'm sorry -- I don't know how to fix that.

I think all you should need to do to fix the problem is replace "@pathonly@\@finalname@" in your mp3 line in the ini file with "@source@"

You can also make the ini file a little more readable by using "@source@" instead of "@pathonly@\@nameonly@.wav" throughout.  And by using "@fullname@" instead of "@pathonly@\@nameonly@.mp3" in the mp3 line.  But that's just a matter of personal preference.

Edit: Typo.

Now that I have ripped a fesw CDs, I have a new problem:  getting  MAC 2.92 to scan the FLAC files.  It just seems to stall on .flac files.  I tried it on tow machines, with DVD and HDD (also with and without tags enabled in EAC) on each and the same resustls.

Having the flac's won't be that useful without a good catalog.

OK.  I tried making a few flacs directly from wavs using the front end.  These files scanned fine with MAC, so I figured something in the above code for MAREO was making MAC choke.  I thought I would strip the tags from files made via MAREO, and I loaded the folder intoTGF, but there seemed to be no tags.  And MAC still doesn't like them.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

BTW, I found the catalog in TGF, and it scans the flacs fine.

Still puzzled,
