Well, it's connected with Converter component.
QuoteI tried to read FLAC documentation but I see there only general explanations of all switches, but no info about revelance of their orderdoes that not tell you something? surely if it were relevant, it would be in the docs?
EAC had setting that couldn't be omitted - "Low quality" vs. "High quality". "High quality" is equal to "-h" switch - which is equal to "-q2" switch. […] EAC still has that setting, were one value HAVE to be chosen - "low" or "high" quality of encoding
And how about verification of "--sector-allign" option - any suggestion?
Align encoding of multiple CD format files on sector boundaries. This option is only allowed when encoding files all of which have a 44.1kHz sample rate and 2 channels. With --sector-align, the encoder will align the resulting .flac streams so that their lengths are even multiples of a CD sector (1/75th of a second, or 588 samples). It does this by carrying over any partial sector at the end of each file to the next stream. The last stream will be padded to alignment with zeroes.This option will have no effect if the files are already aligned (as is the normally the case with WAVE files ripped from a CD). flac can only align a set of files given in one invocation of flac.WARNING: The ordering of files is important! If you give a command like 'flac --sector-align *.wav' the shell may not expand the wildcard to the order you expect. To be safe you should 'echo *.wav' first to confirm the order, or be explicit like 'flac --sector-align 8.wav 9.wav 10.wav'.
I love foobar's "Converter" option. I tried to tune compression options beyond built-in presets with encoders command line switches - like in EAC. But after several tries I'm not sure weather some options really work. Encoders like LAME or FLAC have many available command line switches. Does order of them matter?
