I thought that maybe the CLI just manages the transcode/encode and passing the tags, but it's the GUI that's had the most work and not the encoding engine.
For transcoding this is probably true, but that leaves out ripping, verifying, and offsetting.
in the CD rip window, some way to "uncheck all" would be nice. that way, if you only want to rip one track, you don't have to click on each checkbox (but one).in iTunes, cmd-clicking on one checkbox will check/uncheck all.
instead of just outputting the raw files in which we then manually create the folder structure
Q: What is the advantage of using the .mka file instead of the original audio formats, like mp2, mp3 etc?A: In many cases there is not a reason to store audio only files in MKA. If you have an audio file with a single track, or "song", that you don't intend to edit.Here are some reasons that placing audio in MKA is useful:1. The tags will be the same no matter what audio format you use. That means that if you write a program to read back tags, it only has to read them from one type of tagging system, no matter what type of audio is being used.2. All tracks to a CD can be in a single file. You have the option of dividing the tracks into seperate Tracks, or seperate Chapters. You could make your own compilation in a single file, even using different audio formats, such as MP3 and Vorbis.3. If you write a program to read audio of of MKA, then you don't need to understand how the framing works in the different formats because it is already done for you in Matroska.4. It is easy to delete portions of the audio without reencoding because you just throw away those blocks. You don't even have to be able to play that format back, you could edit by just knowing timecodes.5. Detecting differences between two audio streams would be easy because you could store both in a single file, start playback, and then just switch between tracks.6. If you intend to combine the audio with video, then having is in MKA means you can merge it with an MKV, even if the application doesn't support the audio type.7. In the case of MP3, MP2 AC3 and even some AAC, using "compressed headers" the MKA file may even be smaller than the original "raw" file, without losing any bit of information.
When will XLD be updated with lame 3.99?
It would be wonderful if XLD would read the CD-Text information from the disc and include it in the CUE file.@tmkk Thanks for the awesome work!
