I think what you say is a feature in Windows 7, not something i did.

It isn't possible to install your latest version (posted  at 14:43 on this forum). It immediately replies with the message:

  "Can't find fhgaacenc.exe. Please re-install"
 
I've managed to reproduce the bug in your latest official version (install: "TAC(0.7.7.1045)(setup).exe"), which deletes source files, even when it is not specified, which I don't appear to be able to do in TAC anyway.

I add a source directory (Add folder) and then try to do a downsizing of the bitrate of the audio files in the source directory, putting the results in a target directory.

There is an error, saying it can't find a set of files.
Afterwards the source files in the directory have all been deleted although this wasn't (and even can't be) selected. Bad news!
There is also no target directory created.

Here is a copy of the TAC log:

BTW it would be nice to have just the target folder structure stored and not all the tree above it.
An example:
The source files are in directory "source" under:
   C:\myfles\xx\yy\source
The target directory is:
   C:\target
Your current behaviour when specifying "Create folder structure in output" is to put the files in:
   C:\target\myfles\xx\yy\source
Why not just put them in:
   C:\target\source

This would be a lot cleaner.

@cyberdux and @o-l-a-v try this exe. Please note that this is not portable version.

-I tried to add ArtistSort, AlbumSort, ComposerSort, AlbumArtistSort, NameSort to QAAC and ALAC. Although no error occurs while encoding, MediaInfo shows "soal" instead of "ALBUMSORT".
-Opus should show track info properly now.
-QAAC and ALAC will now have comment tags copied.
-I added more tag fields to musepack.

Where can I get a list of ape tag fields?


Thanks ozok. I am not being able to download from dropbox presently but I will try again later. (Managed with Google Chrome.)

I have "Can't find fhgaacenc.exe. Please re-install"

mp3Tag has a comprehensive list of fields for just about any file type in its help section and also mapping between file types

Flac to MPC is almost good, but removes "Total Tracks". Still aborts if bit depth is 24 and I don't change it by setting.
Flac to Opus has same tag problem. All AAC-formats aswell

You must replace your TAudioConverter.exe with this one. This is not a setup, just program exe. I should have made that clear.

@javmaclean sorry for the data lost. I hope you had a back-up. Please re-download link above. I updated it so that it has a log which records files deleted.

Sorry for my stupidity. I worked that out on my way to work - haha. I'll try again when I get home.

Ozok: At "audio effects", "Channels". Shouldn't 6ch be supported aswell?  Converting 6ch ac3 to aac (for instance) without edit audio effects creates a 6ch aac (Using QAAC), so it manages 6ch yep?

Edit: Just kidding, QAAC 6ch did not encode..

ozok,
      I've just given Taudioconverter another try. It's moved on a bit since I last tried it, which is nice to see. Just a couple of suggestions that would make it my 1st choice converter :

  • An option for Wavpack as an output format
  • An option to use the lossywav pre-processor with lossless output formats


Edit : One other thing I just noticed is that maybe the error reporting could be improved. 2 of my tracks didn't convert and it wasn't obvious from the log. Once I'd noticed and checked the log it still isn't obvious why they didn't convert

I agree with botface's requests. Didn't realise Wavpack had been omitted.
The reason I think lossyWAV would be so useful is that "normal" people aren't going to go through the hassle of setting up command lines (just not going to happen). I've recommended lossyWAV to non-techie types and they won't go near it. It would be cool to say just download TAudioConverter select LossyWAV and choose "standard" then choose FLAC, done (there's your lossyFLAC files). 

C.
PC = TAK + LossyWAV  ::  Portable = Lame MP3

I tried some more files. This time it created the output file structure but didn't produce any converted output files. I'm trying to convert to FHG AAC from a variety of source file types. Maybe I don't have something set up correctly (although fhgaac.enc is in the TAudioConverter directory)?

Yes, but it's an old version. However I thought I'd extracted the required files from the current versions as per the instructions that you gave for TAudioConverter (libsndfile-1.dll and fhgaacenc.exe IIRC). Should I have anything else in the TAC directory?

Ozok: At "audio effects", "Channels". Shouldn't 6ch be supported aswell?  Converting 6ch ac3 to aac (for instance) without edit audio effects creates a 6ch aac (Using QAAC), so it manages 6ch yep?

Edit: Just kidding, QAAC 6ch did not encode..


Ok, now i understand it.
The original ac3 file is 5.1. TAudio converter says it 6ch. I can't duplicate the error i got when encoding 5.1 ac3.

But in the effect settings, should not the "sampling rate" and "channels" be adjusted to what choosen codec supports? Like, QAAC does not support 6ch, but others do.

One more thing: Can't TAudioConverter open Opus files? When i try loading a opus file it won't show up. But when going through "Open" dialogue, Opus is shown as supported.

o-l-a-v I'd added an older version of MediaInfo that did not cause problem with saving artwork but now this version does not support opus input. I'll try to find a solution.

fhgaacenc.exe requires enc_fhgaac.dll (winamp\plugins) , libmp4v2.dll (winamp folder) and nsutil.dll (winamp folder) too.

Like, QAAC does not support 6ch, but others do.

qaac supports 6-channel input.

Sweet.
Don't seem like TAudioConverter can read bitrate and bitdepth from Opus in this version.

When right click > info:

It still reads 5.1 as 6ch. VLC says: 3F2R/LFE (per wikipedia is 5.1), TAudioConverter (and foobar actually) says "Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE". Or is 5.1==6ch?

Maybe the buttons should be adaptive to size of the window? When making it smaller than half the screen it begins to look odd


It would be awesome with advanced output options, like specifying a folder system, based on different tags in the audio files.
Like: "%artist% \ %year% %album% \ %track% - %title%" ("Nirvana\ 2002 Best of the Best\ 07 - Lithium" for instance)

But thanks for great work! I'm not complaining, only helping you to kill bugs:)

In 0.7.8 there is a bug. If you set "Copy tags from source" TAKc.exe gives an error and quits. As a work-around you may disable tag copying when you are converting to TAK.

Yes, but it's an old version. However I thought I'd extracted the required files from the current versions as per the instructions that you gave for TAudioConverter (libsndfile-1.dll and fhgaacenc.exe IIRC). Should I have anything else in the TAC directory?

fhgaacenc.exe requires enc_fhgaac.dll (winamp\plugins) , libmp4v2.dll (winamp folder) and nsutil.dll (winamp folder) too.

Apologies. That did the trick. Works fine now. And it's nice to see you've added Wavpack as an output option - Thanks

Could it be possible to add support for DTS?

Actually TAC supports convertion from DTS for a while now. But FFMpeg can only decode core DTS from DTS-HD files (MA or HR). AFAIK there are no free programs that can decode these files themselves. I honestly do not know much about these files, I don't have much samples.

If you have m2ts files, you can try to open them with TAC.

Edit: Yes these words are in Turkish.

I had MKV with DTS 5.1 inside. Opened, but won't extract or encode to anything :/
Used DTS add for Foobar, that worked flawlessly:  http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_input_dts
