I too can see this being my default ripper eventually... and it's something which can be recommended to others too short of time to get involved with setting up EAC.

This may be the time for two quick queries which put me off (I haven't used it for a while so these things may have been sorted now anyway).

(1) When I played with the earlier version all my ripped MP3s ended up in a folder in alphabetical order, not track order. As EAC works fine for me - and I'm short of time too -  I didn't get involved in finding the solution to this.

(2) Also, I find it easy to switch Lame versions with EAC - as the new alpha is so good I want to use this, not the version Spoon's undoubtedly excellent prog is bundled with.

Try this string in the naming box:
Code: [Select]
[IFCOMP][IFVALUE]Various Artists[]Various Artists\[album][IFMULTI] (Disc [disc])[]\[album][IFMULTI] (Disc [disc])[] - [track] - [artist] - [title][][IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[album][IFMULTI] (Disc [disc])[]\[artist] - [album][IFMULTI] (Disc [disc])[] - [track] - [title][]



If you are using logs, then add this:
Code: [Select]
[rippedtopath][IFCOMP][album][IFMULTI] (Disc [disc])[].txt[][IF!COMP][artist] - [album][IFMULTI] (Disc [disc])[].txt[]

You can use the comand line encoder with dBp to use any available LAME builds.

use [rippedtopath] along with your preferred filename mask to keep logs in the ripped folder.

How good is the the MP3 Encoder by Fraunhofer include with the dbPoweramp Reference version? Is it a recent, licensed full version encoder? How good is the quality - have thy fixed previous encoder bugs?

I like it that dBpoweramp offers both LAME and Fraunhofer encoders in the Reference version...

Also does this new version support adding an Album Art graphic via the new album art tags included in the FLAC 1.1.3 codec?

The Fraunhofer is licensed and is their latest encoder code.

m4a encoder / decoder will appear in beta next week.

Just a couple of queries after a quick try

The last version had options for delete source track and copy tags from source which seem to have been removed or am I missing something?

I see the tags are copied by default except on the one album I tried the replay gain tags were not.

Did pressure from Apple force you to discontinue the AAC/itunes encoder? I miss the ability to use dbpoweramp to make m4a files using the itunes engine. And, congrats! I have been using your product for a long time!
you will make mp3's for compatibility reasons.

Can someone who has successfully configured the r12 command line encoder with LAME.exe share how it's done?

I posted in the dBpoweramp support forum but did not receive a responsive reply.

No, will be out next week.

Delete source is now a DSP effect, as will be the ID Tag removal / alteration, this is currently underdevelopment, so a few weeks.

I'll definately be buying this when ripping to Cue sheet and Single file is implemented. This is definately a work of art.

archagon, It's recommended to configure the secure mode options (C2 detection if your version supports it) and probably leave the rest as default.

spoon, Is it / could it be planned to have the option to convert all to uppercase all first characters?

It should appear as a DSP effect.

Great!

I remember there have been long threads about the new ripper and various drives. What is the recommend drive working best with that ripper? Overread depending on offset and HTOA would be nice.

Thanks.

Find a drive that's good at DAE. Ergo it will then be good with dBpoweramp. But, as you've said, there have been many threads on this subject recently.
