@Wombat thanks for the suggestion. I can't guarantee it but I'll take a look.
@o-l-a-v thanks.

@francesco do you mean like silence detection?

Hello, Ozok,

The other day, I learnt there's something called DTS-HD and I found that programmes like tsMuxer are able to extract the DTS part and discard the "extended information" without having to reencode. I was also interested to know if converting into AC3, either from the original DTS-HD or from the DTS makes a difference, and I found different opinions. Having said that, I'd like to ask you and know your opinion (and anybody's) about three issues:

1. My first question is more general: transcoding from the DTS-HD makes the AC3 "better" (whatever this word means), considering the DTS-HD contains way more information than the DTS, or it doesn't make any difference considering a lot of data is lost anyway when transcoding into AC3?

2. Someone said in a particular forum that, with some programmes, you have to force the codec to read the whole DTS-HD in order to convert the track to a different format, as otherwise, it only reads the DTS part. I was wondering if Tau would read the whole DTS-HD before transcoding, as I couldn't find information about it.

3. Finally, would you considering adding a button you can click to just demux the DTS part of a DTS-HD? If TAu can do this already, I was unable to find it.

Thank you for your time and have a nice day!

Using the full DTS-HD as the source instead of the DTS core is "better" in the sense that the DTS-HD is closer to the original master than the DTS core. This doesn't mean that you will ever be able to hear the difference between the two, but I would choose the DTS-HD for peace of mind.

Thank you, Octocontrabass,

I think I would also try to transcode from the DTS-HD, although I still wonder if there would be much of a difference, as information is lost anyway when transcoding to AC3. And also, I'm still concerned, as somebody mentioned in a different forum, that the programme must be properly configured to read that extra information contained in the DTS-HD: otherwise, apparently it only reads the DTS part.

I wonder what Ozok and others might think about it.

You should add LossyWAV (FLAC, TAK, WV, WMALSL).

Any thoughts?

Also the "*" on Nero AAC Encoder and on Apple Lossless? And maybe add the option for refalac instead of qaac for Apple Lossless?

Thanks

*Just saw the lossyWAV option. Nevermind that.

You should add an option to remove the source after the conversion, only dBpoweramp of the ones I tried has it and it can be useful sometimes.

I'm trying to extract the different audio streams directly from a DVD with TAC, however, when I add the DVD with the "File" "Add File/Folder/Folder Tree" etc., it takes ages reading things, but then after it's finished, no files are there in the main window for me to select and copy. Any ideas? Should I copy the DVD to the hard drive first? I am trying to add .VOB files.

How to get encoding to use qaac via Apple Lossless Audio Codec - ALAC - Stereo - 44100.ini preset?

It seems to use ffmpeg version N-72709-g42db4aa Copyright (c) 2000-2015 the FFmpeg developers

I think this project can be considered dead. You'll have better luck using foobar2000 for ALAC encoding with QAAC.

hi there,
tried emailing but no reply,
could a feature be added where in you are able to delete input files after conversion completes?
it is the only feature I'm missing currently :)

thanks for t audio converter!

I guess it's safe to assume that TAC is not being actively developed anymore, based on the activity in this thread.
But the feature you requested is already implemented, atleast in v0.9.9 from Fosshub

I've been getting the error "bass.dll is missing" every time I start TAC.  I close the error twice, and TAC force closes.  If I open TAC again, it opens fine.  I'm on Windows 10.  I've completely uninstalled TAC and reinstalled it and still this problem.  Anyone else or any ideas?

I read in a post from 2013 that support for CUE sheets was to be implemented and indeed it was. Unfortunately I have an issue with using CUE sheets with this app. Could anyone advise me?

ISSUE: When converting a single large m4b file (audiobook-itunes) to multiple mp3 files using a CUE sheet for Tracks/chapters the first file is always track/chapter 2 and the album column says track 1 all the way through. Is this an error in the program reading the CUE sheet? An error in the CUE sheet or some setting I have to change?

Regards

The first part of the CUE sheet is as follows:

FILE "BOOK NAME, SERIES NAME Book 3 (Unabridged).m4b" MP4
TRACK 1 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 01"
  INDEX 01 0:0:00
TRACK 2 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 02"
  INDEX 01 17:42:73
TRACK 3 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 03"
  INDEX 01 42:57:97
TRACK 4 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 04"
  INDEX 01 63:21:75





OK. I figured out if I added an initial title line to the top of the CUE sheet it all works. Hope that helps someone else in the future.

TITLE "BOOK NAME"
FILE "BOOK NAME, SERIES NAME Book 3 (Unabridged).m4b" MP4
TRACK 1 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 01"
  INDEX 01 0:0:00
TRACK 2 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 02"
  INDEX 01 17:42:73
TRACK 3 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 03"
  INDEX 01 42:57:97
TRACK 4 AUDIO
  TITLE "Chapter 04"
  INDEX 01 63:21:75

Thank you for this!
I personally will use it for FDAAC with Spectral Band Replication @ 16bit / 96k ;)

Suggestion allow users to select what codecs are installed.
