Much of my music library is AAC, but some is in MP3 format. For certain devices I use I need to be able to transcode my entire library into MP3 format. I can do this by moving all AAC files into TAudioConverter (somewhat tedious), but it would be nice to be able to add my entire library into the converter, have it convert everything *except* the files already in the destination formation. Those I want moved to the destination, not transcoded. Is that possible?

Thanks,

A feature request: if the file already exists at the destination, skip it. That way we can run TAudioConverter and only transcode the "new" files that have been added to the library.

I second this one, or even give the option to overwrite.

Replaygain would be nice, but only if it doesn't take away from the already perfect product you have here

After close and re-open the program, it worked fine, sorry.

Some users reported that they get "a,bc is not a float" error. I fixed it. If you have that error too, you can try TAudioConverter.exes below:

For installed version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171...dioConverter.7z
For portable version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171...ter_portable.7z

If you cannot download these files now, please try them later. My upload speed seems to be very low.

@Steve Forte Rio can you post log "Encoder1"? Also info about file causing the problem.

I've figured out why it happens. There's a problem with handling cyrillic symbols in the input/output path (

Prior to converting, when I look at a file with MP3Tag I see the Album Artist field "ALBUMARTIST" tag. after conversion field gone. Am I missing something or don't have correct settings?

Thanks

MediaInfo can't read that tag, nor "total tracks", "disc" or "total discs" either.

I have another feature request, it would be nice to see Helix included. Recent tests show that it has potential, sometimes it performs even better than LAME.

May I ask why did you remove SoX ?

@Brazil2 I removed it because most of the encoders now use stdin/stdout directly from FFMpeg (FFMpeg>Encoder). I didn't have time to include SoX into that chain (FFMpeg>SoX>Encoder). But I will give it a try when I have time.

One user has reported a bug. If you check "Enable" under "Filters/Effects" window and do not change filters' values from their defaults ("Samplingrate>orginal", "ChangeVolume>Unchecked", etc), encoding fails. You can uncheck "Enable" if you don't use any of the filters. Using at least one filter (apart from channel) prevents that error.

could you post a sample with those tags please ?

I'll patch mediainfo to have this...

Ozok: Seems like TAC can't handle norwegian signs "Æ", "Ø" or "Å" in file names of directory.
Error is "No such file or directory"

@o-l-a-v @Steve Forte Rio I'm trying to find out if this caused by TAC or one of the backends.

Edit: I think ffmpeg fails at that point. I'll try to use an other build.

Edit2: It's more likely that TAC passes commands wrong. Temp. bat file's encoding is ANSI. I'll try to find a solution.

Edit3: It's most definitely caused by latest changes in TAC. Older versions (I tried 0.8.4) without piping works without a problem.

I made a build that uses old temp. wav file logic instead of stdin/stdout. It should work with non-ansi chars. It will need SoX to be placed under tools folder in a folder named sox, just like old releases. That means SoX filters are back. As usual overwrite old exe.

For installer version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171...dioConverter.7z
For portable version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171...ter_portable.7z
SoX: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171/sox.7z

Please report any bug you may find.

Edit: Exe's above cannot encode to AIFF. I'll fix this.

This version fixed the non-ansi characters in file name issue for me.  Thank you. I was not able to use 0.8.6 until this was fixed.

Thank, BTW, for adding the "skip file if it already exists" option I requested.

When encoding using lame, I select algorithm quality 2. The log files say you TA calls "lame" with the "-q 2" setting. When I examine the resulting mp3 file using mediainfo it reports "-q 0" as the setting that was used. I am not saying mediainfo is right, but has anyone else noticed this?
