converting lossless images w/ embedded cue sheets 2005-08-07 06:24:00 i currently have my music collection backed-up w/ wavpack -hx, and i've recently been doing some transcoding to mp3 for different reasons, and it takes a while to do my whole collection, and so i was considering converting my backups to -x, or even -fx, because i think i have enough disk space, and it would speed things up in the long run. i don't mind if it takes a while to encode (or transcode in this case) my back-up once, but having my transcoding to mp3 alittle faster would be nice.anyways, my question is about how i should do this. i currently have most of my albums stored in an music/artist/album directory. my cd's by various artists, or compilation cd's are just in a music/album directory. then in the album folders, i have the image file w/ the cue and log embedded (cdimage.wv), a redundant copy of the cue (cdimage.wv.cue), and a redundant copy of the eac log (<album>.log). i really like my current setup, and want to maintain the structure through this process.i'd like to do this transcoding process as smoothly as possible, and i've had some difficulties so far, as i a relatively new to foobar2000. when i load an image (or cue) into foobar, i select all of the songs, and go to convert>run conversion, i get an individual track for each song, and each track has an embedded cue sheet, which is problematic for playback. if i go to convert>run conversion, single file output, i get a single file that it named as one of the tracks of the cd. it will have the embedded cue sheet, but when i load the file in fb2k, it shows a number of tracks, all titled w/ the same track title, rather than the correct titles for each track... i'm stumped as to how to do this correctly.also, maintaining any pregaps that may exist on my images is very important to me. i have a couple cd's that have hidden tracks before the first track, hidden in the pregap, and i don't want to lose that.so, is there any way i can do this as one task, overnight?btw, my current output filename formatting is:Code: [Select]$if2(%artist%,'Unknown Artist')\$if2(%album%,)\$if(%tracknumber%,$num(%tracknumber%,2),$num(%_diskwriter_index%,3)) $if2(%title%,%_filename%)and the command line i will be using will be just:Code: [Select]-xm - %dor something like that.i'd also like to learn how to adjust my output filename formatting to handle my various artist cd's the way i want it to (just music/album), while still handling my other cd's right, and i've never figured out how to do that. thats just a side issue though...anyways, thanks so much for your advice!
