"Abort" will save file if you enable option "Leave partial files for aborted or failed conversions" in section "Other" of Converter's settings.

But to save quality and not bloat file size it is better to record stream without re-encoding. It is not possible with fb2k's converter, but can be done with ffmpeg.

Last post by Atmasphere -
If you are having sibilance problems, it could be caused by a high frequency resonance.

This is caused by the inductance of the cartridge and the capacitance of the tone arm cable.  Together the two form a high frequency tuned circuit which can be pesky if its just at or above the audio spectrum.  Using a low capacitance cable can help out, and its also a good idea to load the cartridge, since all high output moving magnet cartridges are directly affected by loading at audio frequencies.

You can find out more about this at this link:

I already dropped your inductance value in the calculator on that page. If you are using low capacitance cable, the resonant frequency is under 30KHz. If your cartridge is the 600mh version, the peak is a bit lower. I assumed 70pf  for your phono cable, but if its more than that it would drive the resonance into the upper region of the audio band.

Sorry for intruding a first party component topic... But @Porcus , you should be able to perform the first two actions with foo_renamer. Not as fancy as file_ops but I find it beats performing things manually.
Looks interesting, although it does not do my first item (I changed the initial capitalization of an ALBUM tag, try to "Move" and fb2k reports nothing to do, as usual). Didn't check the second :-o
Support - (fb2k) / Can't save convert stream
Last post by Sergey77 -

There is no saving function at the window of convert processing. There are only buttons "Pause" and "Abort".
Therefore, i can't save the convert of the stream, for example stream radio (see attached pic and txt)
Selecting these two buttons doesn't save the record to file.
Is it possible to record a stream? or is it an opportunity to improve?
I suggest add a button "Save" or "Done" in window of convert process, for to stop convert when needed and save the record.

Peter, if you are going to do more work on this:

* If only case is changed, then it seems to me that files will be renamed but directories will not. That is, FOLder/file can be moved to FOLder/File but not to Folder/File.
* Is it so that directories are not renamed, fb2k will rather create new, move and remove? If I tick move entire folder, it would likely speed up to rename folder?
* Often I'd like to have a certain folder (the one with all my unsorted lonely files, obviously) protected from renaming/moving.  Is there an easy way to implement that?

  • one small "inconsistency" Peter:
    File Operations > Rename To > scripts, separator, '...' to manage scripts.
    Tagging > 'manage scripts' as own menu-entry, then somewhere below the 'scripts'-entry, scripts only. (Sorting also not changable via Preferences > Display > Context Menu, but doesn't matter).
    IMHO first one is better
  • I would also prefer a small history of last used shemes
