Yes, the default Tool tag is ok now but if I change it it gives me an error "Cannot find output file" (in the log) and "Following files could now be created" (in the tray).

The installation routine has the possibility to install in german, but the GUI is in english.
Is this a bug, or isn't there a german language file?

Bug:
- Converting from OGG with embedded album art to Opus: Album art is not transferred even though I've chose to in settings
- Randomly, when converting multiple files at once, the output of one of the file gets corrupted, 0 bytes, or just some bytes. Seems like convertion gets interrupted or something. Haven't been using encoder logs yet, but will turn it on from now on. Last time was FLAC to Opus. Converted same song alone later, no problems.

Request:
- Possibility to drag and drop selected songs from TAC to a player, from TAC to foobar for instance. Visa versa already works, but would be great with the same ability the other way around
- Make columns based on tags. Artist, title, album etc. And then make it possible to sort the list of songs by each of these by clicking the column. Ascending then descending. Like foobar for instance.
- Possibility to edit visible columns. Which to be visible, and also order. Like foobar

Hi o-l-a-v, I've fixed ogg-opus problem just now. I cannot do much about second problem because I cannot reproduce it here. Maybe your next tests with logging enabled will provide more information.

I'll see what I can do about drag-drop and columns.

Hi all,
Today I was free so I've prepared an other beta. This one includes major changes.
Quote
-Added: [General] New UI (yes again)
-Added: [General] CD ripper is now a part of the main window
-Added: [General] Default codec option is now "Lame VBR 2"
-Fixed: [General] TAC would create custom file names even if "Custom folder tree" options wasn't selected
-Fixed: [General] "Trim" list menu option was working even if trimming was disabled
-Fixed: [General] "Trim" list menu option was working even if trimming was disabled
-Fixed: [TArtworkExtractor] Couldn't extract artwork from Ogg&Opus files (thx to o-l-a-v)
-Fixed: [TArtworkExtractor] Couldn't write artwork to Ogg&Opus files (thx to o-l-a-v)
-Removed: TCDRipper, option summary list in the main window
-Updated: FLAC, ID3, MP4 and WMA tag libraries


From now on TAudioConverter.exe is 32bit only. There will be 64bit releases but only backends will be 64bit. I had to make this change because CD ripping library I use only support 32bit and embedding CD ripper into the main window was important. I don't think this makes that much of a speed difference in everyday usage.

@eahm I can now write custom tool tag while using QAAC. I entered --tag too:"TAudioConverter" to "Custom Options" box. I didn't get the same result with FDKAAC though.

Finally, the custom option box (for qaac) works perfectly.

The "--tag" switch was a personalized command made by nu774 for qaac after months of me bothering him

Also, thanks for the Browse button.

Hey all,

I've been pulling out my hair for weeks, searching google for hours... never finding the exact answer I need.  I'm hoping you're willing to help me out with this noob question.

In TAudio Converter... when converting Flac to MP3 (VBR).  I get two VBR setting options:

* First one says "VBR: "    Then has an empty box and a slider under it.  It goes from 0-9, with many steps in between each full number.  (0, .14, .18, etc)
* The next option is "Algorithm Quality".  This goes from 0-9 as well, but simply steps from one full number to the other (0,1,2,3, etc)

Now, I understand that VBR 0 is the best quality for VBR, and 9 is the worst... but what I don't understand is the two different options presented in the settings window.  Which is which? 

I'd really appreciate if someone could explain exactly what those two settings are for.  THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

ozok, I don't understand when you say that "only backends will be 64bit". Do you mean that betas won't be 64 bits but final versions will? I don't get the concept of backend. Thanks!

@JPBoston
-Algorithm quality: Basicly, 0 means the best quality but slow while 9 means the fastest and worst quality. Default is 3. I don't have much information about Lame's inner workings but it's an option for speed/quality trade off.
-VBR: http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=VBR

@Vivadavid as you may know, TAC uses other command line tools to do encoding, decoding, etc. Some of these tools have 64bit versions and some don't. In 64bit version of TAC, I use 64bit versions of these tools whenever possible. Also TAudioConverter.exe itself was 64bit too. Now however, tools used in 64bit version will stay that way but TAC.exe will be 32bit. So nothing much changes for users.

Should we uninstall the 64-bit version before installing the new beta?

I suggest you use beta in an isolated place. It is portable, so it doesn't interfere with the old installation (assuming you are using installed version, not portable). But if you are using a portable version and want to replace it with the beta, then you may clear the folder or overwrite older files. I think overwriting is the better option, since it keeps settings. Only drawback is that this method leaves "TCDRipper" folder in "Tools" folder, it is not needed anymore, you can remove it.

When I release a stable version however, I'll make installer to uninstall previous version. Portable version users will probably be able to overwrite old version as usual.

ozok, the tooltips cause an annoying delay right before you click anything. The tooltip is "styled" even when the style is disabled, which is the first thing I change. Please keep the donation money and remove the styles/skins.

Also, really small interface issue: on Help > Check Update you can barely see "What's new:" when the style is disabled.

Thanks for showing the encoder setting right there on the main screen, very useful.

Something else, the software is not really portable but standalone. It creates a folder (TAudioConverter) on %temp% and it doesn't remove it, it also creates a file (cdr.ini) on %AppData%/Roaming. Any registry key?

I forgot to disable them when skinning was disabled. From now on normal windows hints will be shown when skinning is off. I'll also make sure that temp files/folders are cleared properly in portable mode.  It shouldn't create any registry keys. At least I didn't code anything that'd create registry entries.

Ozok, thank you for the new update. I've noticed you've put Codec options and Filters side by side, which makes more sense in my opinion.

A couple of things:

1. I found on the download page a 64 bit version, and you said you'd be omitting it. Is it because the codecs inside are 64 bit or did you eventually decide to keep the 64 bit version?

2. Would you recommend the normal version over the portable version?

3. As for the portable version, I'd like to make a suggestion: when you run it, you're requested tp choose a folder, and you normally choose the folder where you have the previous portable version. However, inside the folder you've chosen, Tau creates a subfolder called "Tau·". Would it be possible if Tau could copy the files in the folder you've chosen without creating any subfolders?

4. If a portable version was copied in a folder with a previous portable version, would Tau delete files that are not relevant any longe or, alternatively, would it be preferable to move apart the config file, delete the rest of the folder and then copy the new portable version?

Thank you for your time!

Regards!

1. I said that TAudioConverter.exe would be 32bit. If you are using 64bit version, then encoders are 64bit (if they have 64bit versions ofc).
-32bit package > everything is 32bit
-64bit package > TAudioConverter.exe 32bit, encoders 64bit
2. They function almost the same. Only differences are where settings file is saved and a few more cleaning functions in portable version.
3. I don't think it needs a change. Currently it's more tidier.
4. You can overwrite old files. A fresh copy of portable version doesn't contain the settings file and logs folder so if you have them from a previous version they are preserved. Of course you can be safer by creating a backup.
