You people beat all I've ever seen. I'm new to the ripping scene as well and have been searching/reading forums for months trying to figure out what route to take and everybody and their brother has an opinion the different ways to rip/encode CDs. With this being said and the fact that techniques change almost on a daily basis you will always get these types of questions. I'm very experienced in video editing and communicate on several fourms in that arena and have never seen so many ridiculous comments towards newbie’s as I have seen here. Also, I have never replied to a forum as I have here and would never do so if I haven't put in the hours that I have searching for answers and still be lost in this arena, mostly because there is no real strait answers here.
I'm using Exact Audio Copy V0.95 beta 3 along with LAME 3.97 beta 2.I've popped the lame.exe in the EAC folder and set my bitrate setting to 128kb/smy command line reads: --alt-preset standardis this the correct settings? I'm using an EAC config file a friend had setup and he e-mailed to meI'm mainly ripping all my CD's to the PC for home listening and for my car stereo, but i'm looking at getting a MP3 CD deck so I can ditch my vinyl! So any info on settings for this would be handy!Any help would be great,DJAd
