Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 13 December, 2012, 07:21:33 PM
TAudioConverter is a audio converter and extractor. It can convert almost any audio format to aac, ac3, mp3, flac, wav, ogg, opus, mpc, tta or tak. SoX is used to apply effects such as normalization, volume change etc. It can also extract audio streams from video files and encode them. Video files with more than one audio stream is supported.

It is possible to run up to 8 simultaneous processes to shorten encoding time.
If you want an encoder to be added please let me know.

TAudioConverter uses:
-FFMpeg to extract and decode audio streams.
-FAAC
-QAAC
-Lame
-OggEnc
-FLAC
-FHGAACEnc
-Opus
-MPCEnc
-MAC
-TTAEnc
-TAKc

You can download it from homepage (http://taudioconverter.sourceforge.net/).
Both portable and setup versions are available.

Beta release downloads are available here:

Aren't you going to get into trouble with the patent holders of some of those codecs?

Not if this is just the front end and the user has to supply any proprietary codec.

"It can also extract audio streams from video files and encode them."
Is the extract done losslessly and what parameters(or what do you do exactly?) are used?

Yes, extraction of audio using ffmpeg.exe does not involve transcoding.

In addition to that binary, there are many binaries in the archive. Legal issues aside, I have to wonder what to expect from opusenc.exe with the file date 2012-09-04 :shrug:

Yes it is done loselessly. TAudioConverter tries to determine output audio file's extension according to audio stream's codec. Please send feedback if that fails. I tried to cover as much codec as possible but there are always exceptions.

Yes i know, in the next release it will be updated to opusenc from rarewares.org, I assume it is up to date?.

Mp3 for one. Inclusion of binaries that either encode or decode mp3 without proper licensing will quickly get you a threatening email from the patent holder (at least this is my understanding).

Ah thanks, I've been using MP4Box and a batch-script which is a bit tedious and only works on MP4s (I've tried several GUIs and they didn't really work).

Btw about the codecs, I think your better not including them and instead when the user tries encoding (say MP3) for the first time they are given a choice to download the codec and directed to where you can obtain the binaries from a trustworthy source. Or they can download a "codec pack"... I'm not trying to tell you how to write your program, just I like to be on the safe side if I were dealing with MPEG.

There is really a need for a GUI converter frontend for linux, that ties in to command line encoders.

Why did you update with older versions? qaac 2.07 -> 2.08, opusenc 1.0.1 -> 1.0.2

Also, are you using the flac.exe with 2GB+ support?

Ogg Vorbis with libvorbis or aoTuV?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 15 December, 2012, 06:28:45 AM
Ogg Vorbis is with aoTuV.

Yes flac.exe that comes with TAC is 1.2.1 and according to flac change log there is >2gb support since 1.1.3, tho i didn't have a chance to test it myself.

I missed these updates. You can manually replace them.

Post by: nu774 on 15 December, 2012, 06:42:42 AM
Try the following:
Code: [Select]
flac --input-size=9876543210

If something like the following is shown instead of normal usage, it's not compiled with large file support (although this alone doesn't assure that large file support really works).
Code: [Select]
Type "flac" for a usage summary or "flac --help" for all options
ERROR: --input-size too large; this build of flac does not support filesizes over 2GB

I think the output size of the FLAC can't be over 2GB. A 2.4GB wav would end up somewhere around 1.6GB in Flac.

Logged in after many months of lurking around....

There's some weird bug with this software.  If I try to set an output folder to save to, it crashes, says it cannot find the output file after encoding to Quicktime AAC.  However, if I check the box that says "Same as Source" and the file is saved in the same location as the input file, there's no problems at all.  Otherwise, it works pretty good!  One minor thing I do notice...I told the program to take the tags from the input files, and it seems to drop the date tag from my FLAC files so all my AAC files have no date field on them.

Legally, I don't see how this program is any different than setting up foobar to do a conversion, minus having to work with all the command lines yourself.  That makes it much simpler for those who cannot get command lines to work.

Thanks to ozok for a very nice program. I'm a dbPoweramp owner and user, but I love having a GUI front end to the various flavors of AAC through QACC, not to mention SoX. I got an iPhone 5 a few months ago (my first Apple product) and I'm having fun playing around with creating 24/48 FLAC files, Opus files, and different types of AAC files. This tool keeps the fun in it (I'm somewhat command-line averse, and I'm not an iTunes fan).

I've been communicating with ozok over on Doom9, and he's fixed every bug report within 24 hrs. Great response.

Can you try that exe (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter.7z) please?

Also date tag is passed as "year" to FLAC files. Is it wrong? I can change it easily.

What is the output folder in that example above? Does the directory "Z:\Music\temp\" exist? Can you reproduce that problem with any of the other encoders?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: Meeko on 17 December, 2012, 05:36:42 PM
Yes, that folder does exist.

Taking your recommendation, I tried just about every other encoder--FLAC, Vorbis, Opus, MP3, FHG's AAC....they all work when I say to output to Z:\Music\temp\  Quicktime's QAAC would not work.

Funny......or rather not funny because that's an interesting problem....I remember having a nightmare trying to get QAAC to work on my computer through foobar...eventually I hit on the right commandline and I haven't touched it since.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: Meeko on 17 December, 2012, 05:40:25 PM
Something else to put on your to-do list: the FHG aac file created did not transfer any of the FLAC tags.  The Opus file had the artist and title tag transfer, but the rest were missing.  Every other format had its tags when I did that test.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 17 December, 2012, 05:59:59 PM
That might be a qaac bug or maybe something specific to your system. Also, qaac that comes with TAC is outdated, maybe updating to 2.08 might have an effect.

I could not find any help or example to show me how to pass tags using fhgaacenc.

http://code.google.com/p/mp4v2/issues/detail?id=151 (http://code.google.com/p/mp4v2/issues/detail?id=151)

qaac has been normalizing the output path name before, but I somehow forgot it and changed to pass the the pathname (given by -o) to libmp4v2 as it is on version 2.06, and triggered the problem of mp4v2.

I think that when copied audio is in AAC, it is better to pack it to m4a container, because raw aac is almost unusable.

When trying to copy audio from VOB files with PCM audio, TAudioconverter only creates empty 20 kB wav and ffmpeg gives error Could not write header for output file #0. It is because PCM in VOB is big-endian and can't be packed into wav. So it must be converted to little-endian first.

And one more question: Why don't support extracting from all common formats that mediainfo and ffmpeg support (e.g. 3gp)?

Thx i changed "aac" to "m4a". And also added support for 3gp files. If you can think of any other extension feel free to share.

About PCM files, does this happen if you set "Bit depth" to any value other than "Original"?

About PCM files, does this happen if you set "Bit depth" to any value other than "Original"?


This happens when "Bit depth" set to to any value other than "Original" and also when "Bit depth" set to to "Original".

My Android voice recorder app produces .3ga files. I managed to convert a test file by changing the suffix to .3gp before running TAudioConverter. Not surprisingly the log file showed that it was looking for video content but it worked anyway. While It's not much trouble to rename first would you consider adding .3ga support?

Thanks

Hi Ozok,


Thanks for this great app. This is the best program I've used for Apple quicktime vbr AAC encoding.

I have 1 question and 1 comment. For QAAC encoding, is 'Encoding Quality' 0 or 2 better? sometimes encoders have a backward counting scale for better quality, like Lame MP3.

My comment concerns the flac metadata not completely being transfered to the new AAC files, the 'date' is not displaced, all the rest of the tagging data transfers correctly.

Thanks again.

As meeko said 2 is best.

Date tag is passed as "year". I do not know, is date the right one instead of year?

PS. Some encoders accept it as "year" instead of "date", there is not much i can do about that.

Hi Ozok,


Just tried the latest version and the 'date' still doesn't transfer from the flac file to the new .m4a file. When I read the log, the 'date' does show in the metadata.

I don't understand how all the metadata transfer happens 'under the hood'.

Has anyone else experienced the same issue when encoding tagged flac files to Apple Quicktime AAC (TVBR:100, Encoding quality:2)?

As you said Ozok "PS. Some encoders accept it as "year" instead of "date", there is not much i can do about that." Maybe I should bring this up with the QAAC developer?

TAudioConverter is the best app I've used for QT AAC encoding, so thanks for that Ozok

vbr is generally recommend, the "algorithm quality" refers to the average bitrate, see this page;

http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?ti...ate.29_settings (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=LAME#VBR_.28variable_bitrate.29_settings)

v0 is the highest quality for vbr and as the numbers increase v1, v2 ... v9 the quality decreases but so do the file sizes

1) From lame help:
Quote
Bitrate is of course the main influence on quality.  The higher the
bitrate, the higher the quality.  But for a given bitrate,
we have a choice of algorithms to determine the best
scalefactors and huffman encoding (noise shaping).


I think leaving it at 0 (which is the best) is a good idea. I doubt that speed gain will be too high if you disable it (setting it to 9, which is the worst).

2) I think as of XE2 Delphi applications can be compiled for Mac OS. Though I've never compiled one. But TAC uses many components (like JVCL) and they rely on Windows API afaik. So, I do not think it is possible. I did not try TAC, but i could run TX264 with WINE under Linux Mint. TAC is based on TX264.

Edit: Sorry, default value for algorithm quality setting for Lame is 5, not 0.

I'm running 0.6.2 b459 and would like to report some problems :

  • It overwrites the Comment Tag with "Encoded with TAudioConverter" I can see why you might want to do that but I use the Comment Tag and would rather it stayed unchanged. Could it be made an option?
  • I converted some .ogg files using QAAC. The Year tag is not being carried across to the .m4a file
  • I converted the same .ogg files using FHG. No tags at all are being carried across to the .m4a file


1) LOL yes, it is lame. I'll remove it.
2) Command line for date/year tag for QAAC is "--date <"date">", so maybe that info is shown as "date" instead of "year". It is also possible that it maybe under the tag "Record Date".
3) Unfortunately I could not find any command line  tag parameter for fhgaacenc.exe.

I updated to 0.7. and the Year tag is now copied across when using QAAC. However, while it's nice that you've removed the "Encoded with TAudioConverter" default, the comment tag is now blank instead of being carried over from the source file.

One other suggestion that would make TAudioConverter even better would be the ability to use LossyWav (wiki) (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=LossyWAV) with the lossless formats.

Are you sure path in "Output Folder" text box exists? Or, does that text in that textbox have any illegal characters (ie / ? < > \ : * | ”) in it? Or do you have permission to write to that path? As default, output path is set to program's own folder.

I don't know anything about TAKc, but it seems like the syntax should be something like -tt artist="The Tea Party". Maybe it's a typo in the Help.

Since TAK tags are APE tags, maybe the Monkey's Audio docs would help.

ozok,

This software looks great!  Just in time for a large (~400 GB) conversion project that I have coming up.  I do have two questions:

1) When converting from FLAC or MPC to mp3, will the ape tags be converted to id3 tags?
2) I like the ability to recreate the directory structure.  Is there the ability to delete source files?


What I'm trying to do is convert a mix of flac and mpc to mp3 for portable use.  I would like to duplicate everything (art in folder, txt files, etc) to the identical directory structure but not have to manually delete the (original) source files in the new directory.  I know that might not make sense...

None of my business, but I would strongly advise against deleting your lossless source files. Once you convert to a lossy format, you're basically stuck with that format forever (converting one lossy format to another loses even more audio information). If you must delete them, make sure you delete to a large Recycle Bin in case you make a mistake and need to re-do the conversion.

1) Yes, tags will be copied to mp3 files. But I suggets you do a test and see if it works as you expected. Also note that artwork cannot be copied at the moment.
2) TAC does not have that feature yet I'm afraid.

I won't being deleting my archive FLAC's.  I've collected those over many years and ripping sessions.  Unfortunately they now sit on DVD+R's.  They WILL resurface on hard disk soon once I have the time to copy them all over to 3 or 4 TB drives (in duplicate).  What I'm attempting to do now is copy my music to a 1 TB 2.5" drive that will be housed in my car and read by a unit that only plays back mp3, wma and aac.

@dreamliner77

1) Yes, tags will be copied to mp3 files. But I suggets you do a test and see if it works as you expected. Also note that artwork cannot be copied at the moment.
2) TAC does not have that feature yet I'm afraid.



Thanks!  I'm hoping to test it out this weekend.  I'm still debating if I should copy the directory structure, convert and re-add artwork or copy the entire source, convert to the existing directory and then recursively delete mpc and flac...

Hi ozok,

I want you to add a mp4 and m4b extension setting option.

Thanks, good app!

Thanks for the work done. It's a good feature. But I didn't mean exporting the embedded artwork.
I meant copying the artwork to the newly created file tags (id3v2, vorbis comments or APEv2).
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 13 January, 2013, 07:45:55 AM
Yes, I know. But until I find a way to embed artwork to output file, this is the solution I could find.

Also if you guys get "Invalid floating point operation" after updating to 0.7.2, you can go to settings window and uncheck "Extract and save artwork to output" checkbox. It looks like there is a bug with MediaInfo.

Post by: gottkaiser on 13 January, 2013, 07:55:13 AM
With lame it is actually quite easy. Just use the "--ti" switch to include any jpg or png file.
To include an image in vorbis comments you have to encode it with Base64 to text before you include it.

I was planning to find out for more encoders and implement it, but I can add only for these two as well.

Agree, I followed this project from day 1 and it progressed extremely well. I think ozok is a very good developer and he knows what he's doing.

I don't use it but I will keep testing it, thanks for the effort ozok.

Possible to add support for splitting audio files with attached cuesheets?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: sundance on 15 January, 2013, 09:05:21 AM
@ozok,
how do you think about implementing ReplayGain into TAudioConverter?
So if your (lossless) files have ReplayGain tags, you could select to use either track or album gain information, apply corresponding attenuation (via SoX or encoder command line) + apply addional gain (eg. if you want your mp3s @ 92dB reference level instead of standard 89dB) and thus have your target files all at the same loudness level, regardless if your player can't handle RG tags.

.sundance.

Yes, this is in my to-do list. I do not know when, but I will add support for cuesheets.

I actually do not know much about replay gain. I think adding both keeping just in tag and applying replay gain with SoX sounds like a good idea. Added this to my to-do list.

Hi ozok

Just tried your portable version on Win 7 Ultimate x64. Tried to add both a folder of, and individual TAK files. Program wouldn't recognise them / allow me to add. Can the program not decode TAK files?

Also, on a seperate note -- would be really good if you could include lossyWAV.

Looks like a promising program. Personally I use fb2k, but when this is done I'll definitely recommend TAC to friends who don't want to dig into fb2k. I like that there's a portable version too.

Cheers,

C.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 22 January, 2013, 05:19:26 AM
@carpman you are right, tak files were not recognised. I've added support for them. You can download TAC.exe with tak support from here https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter.7z (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter.7z).


BTW, if you get "invalid float operation" error with 0.7.2 while you don't get it with 0.7.1, just uncheck "Extract and copy artwork to output" in "Settings" window.

Edit: Typo
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: carpman on 22 January, 2013, 05:34:33 AM
I'll give it a go.
What are your thoughts re. lossyWAV?

C.

EDIT.
Well, I just encoded a TAK file to Opus which resulted in a 360 byte .opus file which foobar2000 said was a corrupted format.
Quote
Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (Unsupported format or corrupted file)

A couple of suggestions too:

EDIT 2 --- 1) It doesn't seem to remember the last directories chosen (input and output -- may be wrong about that?) sorry!
2) Haven't been able to drag and drop files (it would be nice if it supported that)
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: carpman on 22 January, 2013, 05:55:35 AM
Okay, did a little more testing.

C.

EDIT:

On the encoding from TAK:

All encodes from TAK result in < 1KB files (tested Opus, Lame MP3)
However encoding from MP3 or FLAC to Opus is fine, so it's an "encode from TAK" issue.

One other thing you may want to look at:
TAC Portable seems to create a TAC directory in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\TAC

The folder is empty and I didn't see anywhere in the settings re. the use/creation of this folder. I don't see the need for it.

It's going to be good. I like the interface. I like that it's portable. I'd like LossyWav support (that would also help set it apart from the competition  ).
EDIT: I also like that it maintains directory structure (if you want it to). Agree with posting above re. ReplayGain support would be nice.

Very nice work!

Seems like it cant convert from Wav to MP3. Here is what i get after 1 second:

Wav to flac fails aswell :S Just redownloaded latest (7.2) portable, no difference.
And foobar can convert the exact same file, nothing wrong with it. Just downloaded from beatport.

Edit: Can't convert from flac either.

If you have "Extract and copy artwork to output" checked in "Settings" window, uncheck it.

You can replace mediainfo.dll in your TAC folder with that  (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/MediaInfo.dll) mediainfo.dll.

Did the trick.

Found one bug: When applying some special effects, then disable them without having set the options back to standard, the previous selections is remebered. For example, i got a different sampling rate than standard. Also got mono.
Maybe the program should reset those fields to standard when unchecking the "enable" under Audio Effects?

Not fixed here. See PM.

C.

EDIT: also tried with alternative mediainfo.dll and made no difference.
Very slow at adding TAK files
Long delay (approx 45 secs) between hitting START and encode actually starting.

Using latest portable version.

It takes longer with TAK files because mediainfo reads them slower than other files. Changing mediainfo.dll should solve "invalid float operation" errors with "Copy artwork" option, it does not have much effect on speed AFAIK. Also from the log you sent me there does not seem to be any command line parameter that'd change sample rate.

A part from your log:

Code: [Select]
FFMpeg:
-y -i "source.tak" -threads 0 -vn -acodec pcm_s16le -f wav   "temp.wav"

Lame:
-V 200.00 "tags" --verbose  -q 3  "temp.wav" -o "output.mp3"


I cannot see where sample rate gets changed. Unless lame does something internally? And that 200 should be something between 0-9.

I think you might want to review your default settings  . These are the out of the box settings for MP3 encodes from the latest portable version:

1) Download
2) Unzip
3) Select Audio Encoder from Drop Down (LAME MP3), Select VBR
4) Select files and Encode

The default in this case for LAME (VBR) is -V 200 !!!  (Not -V 0, -V 1, -V 2 no, -V 200!)
When I saw 200 I quite naturally assumed it was target bitrate, since no one in their right minds would set the default to -V 200.

So I think what we've found here is that when pushed to -V 200 LAME will quite understandably resample to 8kHz.

Small TAK > FLAC Test

Adding 140 TAK files (1.94 GB / 9hrs 20 mins duration) from Drag & Drop:

TAC = 4 mins 25 secs
foobar2000 = 2.5 secs (adding 140 TAK files from a "non-scanned, non-library location")

To encode 140 TAK files to FLAC -5

TAC
After hitting START there's a delay of 5 mins 35 secs before encoding actually began
Program then displays double the amount of files in its progress bar (280 instead of 140)
After 3 mins 12 secs (59%) the program got stuck
END OF TEST

foobar2000

1 min 33 secs

-----
System Spec
AMD FX-8120 (8 core - downclocked from 3100 to 2800 / Turbo Boost OFF)
8 GB RAM
Win 7 x64

Testing over for me. I'll keep an eye on progress, as like I said, I think it'll be a nice little program when done.
ozok, have you done bulk speed tests yourself, if so how does it measure up against something like foobar2000?

Thanks for the input carpman, I appreciate it.

As I said earlier, TAK files take longer than other files with mediainfo. MediaInfo is used to get duration of file, so it makes sense that it takes longer than foobar2000.

It shows double amount of files because -if you do not use SoX- files are first decoded to wav with ffmpeg and encoded with selected encoder. So it takes two runs for each file.

Yes, I do run bulk encodings with around 200 files. I generally convert from FLAC to vorbis or aac. I cannot reproduce stucking problem.

I assume foobar2000 is faster than TAC because AFAIK it decodes files on-the-fly and feeds encoders from stdin/stdout. I am planning to integrate bass library to do that in TAC in the future.

I really like the idea of the program, haven't had the time to test a lot, but I'll definitely do that asap. 

How exactly is resampling and dithering done? All via SoX? Which parameters are used, i.e. is -G (--guard) enabled by default?

And I second the previous suggestion to add support for ReplayGain scanning the output files.

Post by: ozok on 25 January, 2013, 02:19:02 PM
Resampling is done by FFMpeg. Guard option will be available with next release.

Awesome program.  I've been wanting something like this for awhile now.  And the pace of development is unreal!

Added ALAC support, I was just thinking about that!

Now for some nitpicking. 

When encoding:
1.  I have four threads running, why do I need to see four more progress bars sitting at 0%?
2.  Option to show encoding speed rather than percents.
3.  Labels on the bottom two narrow progress bars.  I'm assuming its a buffer?  Necessary?

And for completeness:
1.  Add WavPack
2.  Add WMA/WMA Pro/WMA Lossless (bash it all you want, that's not the point)

None taken eahm. I love foobar2000, I even wrote a music player inspired by it a few years ago, tho I can't spare time on it now.

@antman

1) You see 8 progress bars, because I wanted to keep UI integrity. I was planning to use a list showing progress for each file, but the skinning component I use is "light edition" and it does not support skinning of such lists (listviews). Therefore I decided to use 8 progress bars otherwise it looked really ugly.
2) Added it my to-do list.
3) First one is CPU usage, second one is memory usage. You can disable them in settings window. Many users asked for them and I implemented them  .

What else can I use for WMA encoding besides FFMpeg?

When copying audio from videos the option of "Encoding mode:" , "Quality" and "Bitrate" is not grayed out, but not possible to edit. Should be grayed out so users (like me ) don't get confused, or think that TAudioConverter recodes lossy->lossy from videos.

New SoX doesn't work as a manual replacement. Converted some 24/96 FLACs to 24/48, and the resulting files were truncated. Reinstalled the old files and it worked perfectly.

Not much of a test, I know, but I wouldn't recommend a manual replacement. Better to wait until you've had time to work with the new version.

jkauff, actually ffmpeg is used for bit depth and channel changes and resampling. Normalization, volume change is done with SoX. I do not know which (ffmpeg-SoX) is better for which operation, I simply implemented what worked.

Interesting. I wonder if foobar is now relying on ffmpeg for those operations as well instead of the plugins. SoX always had the reputation of being the best at resampling, but maybe that's no longer true. Or maybe ffmpeg is now using the same algorithms as SoX.

Apparently my problem was that the SoX developers inadvertently left out FLAC support in the new code. If you process through ffmpeg first, that would explain why the files truncated--probably at the point you turned over the processing to SoX. That would also explain why the old SoX files worked.

Man that was quick!

Some thoughts:
1.  In WMA, Standard is misspelled.
2.  It'd be nice if there were approximate bitrates next all the settings.  For those of us who don't know what each quality level means in bitrate.
3.  If I transcode 11 tracks, it'll say 1 of 22 done.  Does TAC transcode to another format then target format?
4.  For encoding options, why are some drop down boxes others sliders?  ex MPC.  I like the slider.  Quickly see min and max.

Great program!  And I love the KDE icons over the Gnome ones!

@antman
1. LOL I wrote it in Turkish.
2. I could not find information about that, I will make some tests and put my results there.
3. It is like this because every track must be decoded to wav first. For each track there are two steps (decode and encode) (three if you enable Sox Options). And TAC monitors number of jobs done to show progress, so total progress is number of tracks times two (three if you enable Sox Options).
4. I do not have answer to that. Now I think about it, it does not make sense to me either. Maybe I'll change all quality settings to sliders.

Thanks ozok.

The tags that are written are: Artist, Album, Date, Composer, Track Number, Track Titile, Genre.
The tags that are not written are: Album Artist, ***Sort  Fields, Comment, Disc Number, Total Track, Total Disc, Style or any other tag like Accurate Rip, Conductor etc.

This is not critical because I can re-do the tags in mp3tag but it would be time saving if they were written.

Post by: javmaclean on 09 February, 2013, 09:25:03 AM
I use audio converters a lot to downsize the bitrate of audiobooks (MP3 to MP3).
Yours is the ONLY SOFTWARE anywhere I've found that allows one to include the directory tree and the album art.
I note with full approval the feedback and rapid response on this forum and this is why I'm more than happy to contribute. Your app threatens to blow away all the competition!
However there are still IMHO one or two possible improvements (this is on a Windows 7 64-bit system with an Intel i7 processor):

Album Art
---------
When a single file is converted (only one entry in the TAC list) the album art is copied faithfully to the target file.
When a group of individual files are converted together (as a list in TAC, the album art is taken from the first one and copied to each individual file, whereby the album art of the 2nd, 3rd ... files are lost in the targets.
The same applies when you select a directory to convert. This is OK if you want to apply the same album art to all files in a single album directory.
However the correct behaviour in all cases would be to retain the album art of each individual file in all cases regardless of whether you select a group of files or a directory.
Extraction of album art: maybe the extraction of the album arts from individual files should be made in every case in a set of individual files for each file converted (e.g. folder1.jpg, folder2.jpg etc and NOT just a single folder.jpg, as you do now). The user can then choose after conversion to delete the duplicates - or you could retain the existing behaviour as an option (i.e. between individual art extraction for each single file or just first file art extraction).

Occasional Deletion of Source Files
-----------------------------------
Twice I've found than source files are deleted from the source when I convert individual files as a group, which is very bad news.
Sorry, but I haven't been able subsequently to reproduce this however hard I try.

Target Directory Name
---------------------
When I downsize MP3s to an intermediate target directory, maintaining their directory structure, I note than "_lame" is added to the names of the final leaves of the directory tree. It would be nice to make the addition of "_lame" an option, as it would then be possible to  convert a full directory tree and then copy the (intermediate) target structure to the original one (copy-paste in Windows), without having to eliminate each "_lame" in the directory names beforehand.

Nice to have: use the Graphics Processor
----------------------------------------
TAC's ability to specify up to 8 processes allows optionally good exploitation of a multicore processor - well done!
I've also seen some conversion programs that on top of this allow use of the  graphics processor, at least for my NVIDIA graphics chip..
Maybe you could incorporate some of the NVIDIA CUDA Tollkit to do this.

Hi javmaclean and thanks for suggestions.

1. What you say about artwork seems to make sense. I'll add an option about that.
2. I heard about that before but could not reproduce it or get any more info from users about it. Do report it if it happens again.
3. Again, I'll add an option about that directory naming thing.
4. Using GPU is not possible. TAC just does file level parallelization. Unless one of the encoders support it, there isn't much I can do about it. Also it may not be possible to do audio encoding with GPU at all.

Cheers.

Never tried this myself (or not sure if it went anywhere) but as a point of potential interest:

I did not update tta because I could not get new version to work. It says it "can't open file" no matter what I tried.
Any feedback about lyricdownloader would be welcome.

Gave the latest portable version a quick test and no issues to report. TAK encoded nicely without stalling as before.

One small thing which would be nice is to add the max switches for TAK (-p4m etc ...):

Ozok: When encoding from FLAC to Opus, there seem to be some tag-problems.
"Track Number" and "Total Tracks" are forgotten + "Track Number" gets a new tag in the opus file, <TRACKNO>.
Also, the "Composer"-field in the FLAC was blank, in the Opus file it gets filled with "Unknown". I'd rather have the Composer-tag blank than filled with "Unknown"
Same thing happens Flac->Flac

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/opus/win32/ (https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/opus/win32/)

Lame removes "Total Tracks". Also happens with QAAC, FAAC and OGG Vorbis

MPC did not manage to encode 24/92 FLAC. (When i manually set bit-depth and sampling rate it works. Maybe it should automatically downsample files that MPC does not support?)

If you are using portable version and enabled saving logs after TAC is closed log_encoder1.txt should be created. You can also see it from here:

Great work Ozok. I will test

One more thing:
I like how the program can be dragged to the sides, and auto fill half the screen. And drag to top to get fullscreen. Thats nice 
But when its maximized you can not drag it which with normal windows (Explorer for instance) will reduce the size again. (Restore Down).
Could you add that?

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.

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 :



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

botface, did you look at Encoder1, Encoder2 ... logs? They are backends' output and can give you a better idea about the problem.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: carpman on 12 February, 2013, 12:48:30 PM
  • An option for Wavpack as an output format
  • An option to use the lossywav pre-processor with lossless output formats

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).

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)?

botface, do you have winamp installed? Fhgaacenc.exe needs files that come with winamp.

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?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: o-l-a-v on 13 February, 2013, 05:53:27 AM
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.

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

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.

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.

Thanks.  Have you given this any more thought from a few posts back?  I agree with javmaclean that the duplication of target folder structures is redundant and/or broken.

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.

Could you add the ability to embed album art if it's located in the same folder as the original file?
I have all my flacs sorted into artists and albums. In every album folder I got the album art stored as "Folder.jpg". Would be cool if it was possible to embed these into the converted files.
Also if original file already has album art embedded, the possibility to copy artwork over to the converted one.

Found some bugs:
- When skinning is disabled: When extracting audio, the encoding variables/controlles is not greyed out like with skinning enabled.
- Could not extract 5.1 DTS from mkv. Later, after demuxing with TSmuxer, TAudio manages to convert it. Tried with different mkv's containing different .dts with different bitstreams. This was supported in previous version.

- When this embed artwork setting is selected, conversion of FLAC to QAAC fails (i.e. no output files are created).

@o-l-a-v, can you send me the mediainfo output of that mkv(dts) file?

Edit: Here is a link to new TAudioConverter.exe (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter.7z) if you want a quick solution. Replace it with your own TAudioConverter.exe. Note that this is for installed version not portable.

Here is portable if you guys want to try it. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter_portable.7z (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter_portable.7z)

The gui-thing is just a small little thing, nothing major.
But you can see on the picture that where it says "CBR" and "2" is not grayed out like the rest.
Hm, maybe, when i think about it. Can't everything that has do do with encoding just be removed when "extraction audio" is choosen? No meaning in showing those when extracting audio anyways
http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z96/_Ol...ait/Extract.png (http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z96/_Olliw_/Random%20shait/Extract.png)

One more thing that could be usefull: Trimming when converting a file. When creating ringtones for example, when converting it could be an option to set start and end time on the final file.

I'll test the fix later, great work!

Post by: eahm on 24 February, 2013, 07:15:45 PM
Thanks for the update.

Let's switch from PM to here, I want to see what other people think about what I suggest.

1) Codecs sort alphabetically.

2) "REFALAC (ALAC)" should be "ALAC (refalac)".

3) You should say that to use QAAC libraries from iTunes/iTunes64/QuickTime must be copied in the same qaac.exe folder. Easily usable as portable with "makeportable" from https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/cabinet (https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/cabinet).

4) Same as 3) for fhgaacenc.

5) "Lame" is "LAME".

6) I am going to push this again: AAC (qaac) TVBR as default encoder. I strongly believe MP3 is old and should die, changing the default won't change much but people will start to understand they should use something newer like AAC since everyone is switching the default codec on every encoding software.

7) And I am going to push this one again as well: take off .7z and .rar and switch completely to .zip. Every OS supports it by default.

Post by: Vivadavid on 25 February, 2013, 07:47:40 AM
Hello, everybody,

I've noticed that the AC3 codec was, at some point, changed from Aften to FFMpeg after lvqcl said: "1) why use aften? AFAIK it was superseded by FFmpeg AC3 encoder."

Why is FFMpeg better? Is is faster, does it produce better quality or both? I converted the same DTS track into AC3 using both codecs and the final size was the same, but I suppose that has to do with the fact that I used 640 bits in both cases.

Thank you for your answers!

Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 26 February, 2013, 05:44:15 AM
@Daffy
1) TAC first tries to use external artwork and then embedded artwork if external is not found at the moment. I'll add an option to specify a priorty.
2) That makes sense, added to my to-do list as well.
3) Again added to to-do list.

@eahm
Most of the thing you suggest are acceptable and I'll make necessary changes in TAC.
7) Using zip makes no sense to me. You say zip is supported by every OS which is true AFAIK. I wonder if is there any Windows PC that doesn't have a Winrar like archiving software installed.
Compared to 7zip and rar, zip has a very weak compression. I compressed latest portable version with 7zip(lzma2), rar and zip. I used WinRar 4.20 64bit and 7zip 9.22 beta 64bit. I can post the options I used if need be.

-7zip: 14,0 MB
-rar: 17,0 MB (+3 MB!)
-zip: 22,0 MB (+8 MB!!!)

I think for a program that gets updated frequently, the size difference is important.

@Vivadavid AFAIK aften's code was merged into FFMpeg and I'm sure FFMpeg developers made improvements over it.

Flac -> Flac forgets %disc%, %totaltracks%, %albumartist%, %totaldiscs%. I guess same appears with other codecs.
Please fix so that all "main tags" get saved to new files with every encoder in your program.

In other words, all these (from TagScanner)
(https://hydrogenaud.io/imgcache.php?id=ab5a80b903419f8a02fe6a9c7b6065b4" rel="cached" data-warn="External image, click to view at original size" data-url="http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z96/_Olliw_/Random%20shait/AllThese.png)

+ Support for CTRL+A in file list.
The mouse thing when holding left click (to mark files in file list) while moving the pointer seem to be quite buggy. When having a list so long that you need scrollbars, the ones marked gets unmarked when it starts to scroll.

Post by: sundance on 26 February, 2013, 10:02:48 AM
ozok,
thanks for all the effort and great improvements you've put into TAC.
The only thing I really miss is using ReplayGain tags in lossless files when converting to lossy (which was suggested a while ago  ):
Quote
(...) how do you think about implementing ReplayGain into TAudioConverter?
So if your (lossless) files have ReplayGain tags, you could select to use either track or album gain information, apply corresponding attenuation (via SoX or encoder command line) + apply addional gain (eg. if you want your mp3s @ 92dB reference level instead of standard 89dB) and thus have your target files all at the same loudness level, regardless if your player can't handle RG tags (...)

Quote
ozok: I think adding both keeping just in tag and applying replay gain with SoX sounds like a good idea. Added this to my to-do list.

Is that still on your to-do list? 

.sundance.

I understand your need to keep the archive in .7z and I like the idea as well but instead or a .rar archive you should give a .zip one. Who has WinRAR or 7-Zip can open and extract both .7z and .rar anyway.

Thanks.

If you don't want 7zip, download the exe. If you want install version, then you are most probably not the techie one. Exe for basic users, 7z for advanced.
Or you can make a self extracting 7z-exe. Just tick: "Create SFX Archive" when making the 7z. No one have to install 7zip, and you still got great compression.

o-l-a-v, being modest, I own two IT companies, I think I am techie enough. I don't even use TAC, do you think I make these suggestions for myself? I already made an app for friends and relatives but I can't distribute it publicly because it doesn't use the original foobar2000 installer and it contains proprietary DLLs. I'd like to see TAC simple enough FOR EVERYONE so I can start suggesting it instead of keeping mine updated.

All these suggestions I give ozok come from my portable version of foobar2000.

Thanks for all the updates ozok. I would also appreciate "Flac -> Flac forgets %disc%, %totaltracks%, %albumartist%, %totaldiscs%." fixed if possible and also to have embedded album art copied to the encoded file. TAC would be "perfect" (for me) then.

@o-l-a-v, Fields TAC can read/write are limited to those mediainfo/encoder can read/write. I try to add as much fields as possible but it is not enough. Again, a sample would help. That bug you talk about is, yet again, a bug of skinning component. I almost regret using it .

@Daffy:

1) Unfortunately I couldn't reproduce that problem. I check "Always on top", start an encode and after it is done I can use controls on the window.
2) I couldn't make it available in this version but it will be there with next release.
3) I'll look into this.

To those having tag issues, unfortunately and dues to my carelessness all the samples sent to me earlier are lost. Please send me new ones if you can because I can't reproduce tag copying errors with the files I already have.

@extremerock I'll see what I can do. I assume you want to do this in batch because you can do this easily by hand.

Always on top is always locking up on me.  Now it's just happening randomly, not after a particular encode as previously reported.  Tried to open logs after an encode and it locked up.  Not sure what I can tell you other than it's not working (at least for me - Windows 7 64-bit).  When it's disabled the program works fine and I have yet to have it lock up on me.

Possibility to add custom "encoder" tag, where TAudioConverter just writes name of encoder, version and settings. For instance "QAAC v2.17 -tvbr 120"?
Would make it easier to figure out which encoder version, settings etc. is used in future.

Hi,

I've been trying to convert 5.1 channel FLAC files to something my WDTV box is able to play correctly (the box has a bug in that it scrambles the channels of 5.1 or 7.1 FLAC.... Western Digital seems to be in no rush to fix that..).  I can convert to WAV and that plays, but I'd like to save a little space (6 channel 24/96 files are huge).  I tried going to AAC, but WDTV doesn't do that either.  Tried AC3, but TAudioConverter just returns right after the FLAC decode stage and says it's done.... but the AC3 file is empty.

Am I doing something wrong?  Or is this a bug in TAudioConverter (or the FFMpeg tool it uses)?

Thanks.

(nice Delphi App, by the way.  I'm still programming in Delphi 5, should update to a newer version some day)

ozok, this is what I use with foobar2000:

%artist%/[%date% - ]%album%/[Disc %discnumber%]/%tracknumber%. %title%

Can you add %discnumber% and change Track No to %tracknumber% if it's not a problem?

Thanks.

edit:
Thanks for sorting the codecs alphabetically (TAK comes before TTA though and the AAC ones are not ordered  ).

I have almost no more reasons to not suggest TAC to friends and family.

ozok,

Below is the log (with the bitdepth set to 16).

BTW, tonight I tried converting the FLAC 5.1 to OGG.  It converted,  but on playback the channels seem to be scrambled ?(RIGHT Rear plays only bass).
I tried a conversion using Audacity and it got the channels correct.  Audacity also seems to do the convert to AC3 ok.  But I can't do Audacity in batch mode, so it would take forever to convert all my files!

Thanks, Bill

Thanks for the update.

[Disc %discnumber%] gives result [Disc ] (1 space) without the number of the disc. foobar2000 for example gives Disc 1. [Disc %discnumber% ] gives [Disc  ] (2 spaces) so the tag is not really recognized.

That tag string I was using was too old and needed to be revised. I changed it to: %artist%\[%date% - ]%album%\[Disc %discnumber%]\%tracknumber%. %title% and it should be ok for both programs once %discnumber% works.

As someone else already asked, I don't remember who, why you never added AIFF? ...and WMA Lossless since you added the Lossy one?

But hey, I don't use them, zero care for them here.

- Are you using "-a 1" / "--afterburner 1" with fdk-aac (improved quality)? Enabled by default.
- qaac 2.18 is out.
- Please use flac.exe mod4 (by Case) with 2GB+ support (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=725304 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=84014&view=findpost&p=725304)).

--0.8.3

"Always On Top" is still locking up the program on my machine.  Works for a while, but then it just freezes up completely after a few minutes.  This time it locked it up while trying to open the log after an encode.  Need to use the task manager to end the process to start it up again.  No problems when "Always On Top" is turned off.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: o-l-a-v on 03 April, 2013, 04:36:00 AM
0.8.3 is an good update. Except the encoder quality sliders i must say.
Take LAME for instance. Try to get the VBR quality at exactly 4. It's impossible! And there is no way to write 4 manually.
Ozok, please either remove the sliders and enable text input, or keep the sliders (unnecessary gui function in my opinion) and enable manual text input.
Some encoders also miss this slider (QAAC for instance), so this seems like a hasty added feature :S

+ FLAC to fdkaac removes all tags

+ Would be cleaner to have nero encoder inside the tools-folder. Make a folder inside tools named "nero". Inside you have a textfile named "place_neroenc_here.txt" for instance?

Thanks for trying.  I have no idea why it's locking up on me.  I'm not a programmer.

Also, it crashed on me about a dozen times last night during some encodes.  I was getting some kind of error report screen popping up with all kinds of data tabs of code asking me if I wanted to send in a report.  Again, only way out was to shut down the program and restart it.  Never seen those before so I'm sorry to report this version is very buggy.

Thanks for the updates, and it's almost perfect for me. Not sure anyone else has ran into this issue, but saving the temp files until the conversion process is completed is causing my hard drive to full up when converting a large number of files. Maybe change the option or give option to delete temp WAV file when the conversion  is complete per file. Maybe bypass the recycle bin and delete temp files permanently

Thanks again

Great software. I use 0.8.2 a lot. I cannot use 0.8.3 because when I transcode large number high bit rate mp3's to medium to low bit rate aac (to reduce storage for certain limited storage devices), the program crashes every time after several hundred conversions. This is not an issue with 0.8.2. I use qacc to encode, but the other encoders I try also crash the program so I do not think it is the actual encoding process.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Kind of a bug. If you have specified a output folder on desktop, and the folder doesn't exist before you convert/extract, you must tap F5 (refresh desktop) to see the folder after conversion. Might be confusing to some users, took some time before i understood what was going on..

I can't get %discnumber% to work.

This is the tag I am using:
Output folder:
%artist%\%date% - %album%\Disc %discnumber%

Custom file name:
%tracknumber%. %title%

The source album is Pink Floyd - The Wall. Disc 1 and Disc 2 are already set in the album tags.

The result is always Disc _Lame or Disc _Qaac etc.

@eahm I see your point. There seems to be a DISCTOTAL tag field but there isn't a disc number one. As TAC's reading capacity is limited with what MediaInfo returns, I'm afraid there isn't much I can do until MediaInfo starts reading these tags. I remember reading some MediaInfo parameters related to this, I'll try to look into them.

One more thing, can you post an encoder log so I can see if FFMpeg can read these tags?

This has been mentioned before. He said he'll add it sometime in future, but other functions and bug fixes is more important atm i guess
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 16 April, 2013, 06:45:34 AM
One user reported a bug and I can confirm it: If you enable a SoX effect, temp. wav files won't be deleted right after encoding but they will be deleted later for sure. I don't use those effects, so I missed it.

About cue sheets, I did some research about it when it was first mentioned here. I remember finding couple of libraries that extract information from cue files. However, them being not good enough (they didn't work on some files), I decided to write my own code. But that'll take some time and currently I don't have much time. The changes in the recent update were done a while ago so I could release it now.

I didn't even know uncompressed FLACs existed. I guess it'd be fairly simple to implement them if FLAC.exe can produce them. I guess point of them is to have PCM data while having better tag support.

Cheers.

But, again, why? If a program can read FLAC headers it can also recreate the original PCM data. OK, there might be some strange situations where you have lots of storage and network capacity, but extremely limited CPU power for decoding the FLAC, but I can't really think of a real-life example of that kind of a situation.

People can believe whatever fanciful things they want, but if the motive for ‘uncompressed FLAC’ is related to ideas about sound quality in any way, the site’s rules clearly state that such things, which are as nonsensical as they are unsubstantiated, are not welcome. Believe it if you must: just don’t expect people with standards to listen to you.

To be clear, I’m not psychic and therefore not stating either way that kokuyo’s request is or is not motivated by claims about sound quality – but if it is, (A) you’re wrong, and (B) keep it to yourself.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: kokuyo on 17 April, 2013, 01:22:33 AM
I think that sound quality is the same as uncompressed PCM.

And I think the FLAC tag is more convenient. The Japanese tag information is not well displayed by a non-compressed file.

True, but the same is probably the case with compressed Flac... When implemented right decoding either compressed or uncompressed should result in exactly the same bits (same as original source).

i think the common myth is that the more a file is compressed, the more CPU it will take to decode and this has a negative affect on sound output. 

admittedly, i've only seen this sort of nonsense posted by WAV users. i've not encountered uncompressed flac before.

Just want to thank you ozok!
TAudioConverter works greater than ever. No big problems, and seems like your last tweeking made the whole thing faster and sleeker
All that's missing is CUE-support and support for some more tags (%totaltracks%, %disc%, %totaldiscs%). But there are other ways, so no problem really.

Functions you could add in future:
- GUI for mp3repacker (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=32379). The ability to compress CBR mp3's without loosing quality inside your program would be awesome.
- Also would be great if logs were kept in a folder. The TAudioConverter folder becomes very messy with all them log files
- Ability to disable ALL logs, not only encoder logs.
- Warning when converting lossy->lossy (Not everyone understands how that might degrade quality)

Bugs i've noticed:
CTRL-A function is great. BUT it functions also when editing fields like "Output Folder". Try to add some files, go to output folder, ctrl-a (to mark all text), then delete. The tracks in list disappears.

Thanks for your hard work!

Much of my music library is AAC, but some is in MP3 format. For certain devices I use I need to be able to transcode my entire library into MP3 format. I can do this by moving all AAC files into TAudioConverter (somewhat tedious), but it would be nice to be able to add my entire library into the converter, have it convert everything *except* the files already in the destination formation. Those I want moved to the destination, not transcoded. Is that possible?

May I ask why did you remove SoX ?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 22 May, 2013, 05:30:17 AM
@Brazil2 I removed it because most of the encoders now use stdin/stdout directly from FFMpeg (FFMpeg>Encoder). I didn't have time to include SoX into that chain (FFMpeg>SoX>Encoder). But I will give it a try when I have time.

One user has reported a bug. If you check "Enable" under "Filters/Effects" window and do not change filters' values from their defaults ("Samplingrate>orginal", "ChangeVolume>Unchecked", etc), encoding fails. You can uncheck "Enable" if you don't use any of the filters. Using at least one filter (apart from channel) prevents that error.

@o-l-a-v @Steve Forte Rio I'm trying to find out if this caused by TAC or one of the backends.

Edit: I think ffmpeg fails at that point. I'll try to use an other build.

Edit2: It's more likely that TAC passes commands wrong. Temp. bat file's encoding is ANSI. I'll try to find a solution.

Edit3: It's most definitely caused by latest changes in TAC. Older versions (I tried 0.8.4) without piping works without a problem.

Post by: ozok on 24 May, 2013, 12:22:38 PM
I made a build that uses old temp. wav file logic instead of stdin/stdout. It should work with non-ansi chars. It will need SoX to be placed under tools folder in a folder named sox, just like old releases. That means SoX filters are back. As usual overwrite old exe.

When encoding using lame, I select algorithm quality 2. The log files say you TA calls "lame" with the "-q 2" setting. When I examine the resulting mp3 file using mediainfo it reports "-q 0" as the setting that was used. I am not saying mediainfo is right, but has anyone else noticed this?

I start TA, add 8000+ files in 790+ folders. TA processes them. I click on "Start" and TA starts creating the output folder tree, but it is very slow in doing so.... it takes many 10's of minutes and it never completes. In my case, after about 720 folders, the program crashes with a OutOfMemory exception. By observing the memory usage I can tell you it crashes right at about after using 2GB of memory (I have much more than that in my PC). The memory usage increase constantly while it is creating the folder output structure.

I seems, perhaps(?), there is a memory leak in the routines that create the output folders?

Requests:
- Ability to disable saving of all logs, not just encoder.
- Save logs in dedicated folder. The "TAudioConverter"-folder gets quite messy at times..
- Ability to choose whether or not you'd like to use x64 versions of encoders. (I would like to use lame x86 even though I have x64 system)
- Support of encoding to higher sample rates than 48khz. 92 and 196 khz is used by some out there, and SOX supports it, right?
- Move Nero location into "Tools\Nero". "Lyric downloader" into Tools folder too.
- Ability to actually write the MP3 vbr value, not just by slider. Same request for: "FdkAAC", "NeroAACEnc", "AC3(FFMpeg)", "MPC",
- Slider for "FhgAACEnc", "QAAC", "OGG" vbr values. Seems like the choice of whether a encoder should have a slider for quality or not, is pretty random.

Bugs:
- The exe's you uploaded after version 0.8.6 keeps the encoder logs, even though I've chosen not to.
- When writing in text fields for vbr quality, only backspace is working, not "delete"-function. (Delete sign in front of marker). Would be super if ctrl-a function could work here to. Try opus vbr if you'd like an example.

Thank you for trying a 64bit build. Another issue.... is there a reason you keep the .wav files in the temp directory until you exit the program? When converting many thousand of files the temp directory will grow to several hundred GB is size and many SSD's cannot handle that volume. I can point to a physical (spinning) drive or network location where I have space, but most users have SSD drives as their OS drive with 120, 240 or 480GB of space and these often cannot handle a 200GB+ temp folder (when they contain other stuff as well). Using a non-SSD temp directory slows things down.

Preliminary indications are this fixes things for me! Awesome job.

I am currently running a test transcoding 8000+ files in 780 or so folders and in the past it would crash when I tried this. With this executable it is running (though not complete at the time of this writing). As an aside, the memory usage jumps to 2.3GB for me and then stays there. Once the actual transcoding begins the memory does not continue to jump. So it appears you are allocating the data structures for the files as you traverse the directory tree creating the output folders? It appears every file requires a quarter meg of internal storage... that does seem quite high, but it works so i am not complaining.

Thanks!!!

Post by: ozok on 28 May, 2013, 01:34:58 PM
Actually folders are created while command lines are created, so no information is stored related to them. But many information like encoding paramteres, durations etc are stored on memory. So it makes sense that usage increases during folder creation because it is in paralel with command line creation. Also outputs of encoders are kept on memory.

Edit: If no problem occurs with 64bit version, I'll seperate 32bit and 64bit versions, so installer size will be smaller.

I couldn't find a switch for it.

Also, copying artwork seems to be the cause of huge memory usage. If you don't need it, please disable it. I couldn't find the source of the problem yet.

Thanks for new build, Ozok! Much great new stuff
Is it possible to add support for tagging .APE and .WAV? Would be good to use every supported format without losing tags. Same goes with .WAV.

Bug:
- log_encoderx.txt is not stored in "logs"-folder

Request:
- Always possible to change filename on output based on tags. Now we have to choose "custom folder tree" for this field to be editable.

Post by: ozok on 03 June, 2013, 07:24:08 PM
@o-l-a-v saving logs to "log" folder works only for portable version. Do you mean "full folder tree"+"only file name based on tags"?

Edit:
APE encoder MAC.exe doesn't have any switches AFAIK to set tags. If there is a command lines tool that can tag ape files, I can add this. FFMpeg writes tags to WAV output files at my end.

I use portable. I always read change log, so i saw that difference myself  It creates "logs"-folder, but encoder logs is saved to root folder of TAC
I ment only that i want to be able to rename the converted files, without having to choose a custom folder tree. I've already chosen a output folder on the main screen.

@o-l-a-v you are right of course. Moreover, it saves half of the logs in program folder and other half in the "logs" folder (command lines in the logs folder, console outputs in the program folder) :doublefacepalm:.

Hi ozok,

Thanks for making your nice app. It's easy to use and has many high quality theming options. Nice fade and min/max effects in the gui, too.

I have a request:

Would you mind expanding the options for LAME MP3 encoding? What I would like to request is a dropdown box that lists the various channel modes available with LAME. Right now, there appears to be no choice, and it automatically converts to Joint Stereo mode. Would you mind expanding that at least to:

- Mono
- Stereo (Simple Stereo)
- Joint Stereo
- Dual Mono (also called Dual Channels)

Joint Stereo is good for most things (music, etc.) but the other modes can be very useful and really should be included for your app to become an audiophile's favorite  For example, I sometimes use Dual Channels (where it basically encodes the two L + R channels completely independently. At higher bitrates and in certain applications this is very handy.


Thank you.


EDIT:

I just got the following error when I tried to close TAC from my taskbar (this is using the portable x64 version on Win7 x64):

More bugs have appeared. 64bit portable version:
- Even though i use x64 version of TAC, and have LAME in both 32bit and 64bit versions, TAC chooses to use the 32bit version of the encoder.
- Randomly some mp3's I made today just got about 80kb big (Only tags i guess. From 44,1khz 16bit FLAC). No errors, no interruptions. Sucks, cause now i have to manually go through my lossy collection to find which files was faulty encoded, and re-encode and replace...
- TAC can't handle the "artist"-tag of some flac files. I haven't found a pattern and retag with "Tag Scanner" for instance, won't do. Just re-encode, then re-tag is the only solution. Several artists sepperated with "," sometimes reproduces the problem
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 14 June, 2013, 01:19:44 AM
Some things I noticed

- "copy tags from source" is ticked, but replay gain tags are not copied (should be possible for lossless -> lossless conversions)
- converting to same folder as source doesn't prompt to overwrite, saving the file as _1, is it possible to have an option to overwrite files?
- after conversion, the output file field becomes active even though "same as source" is still ticked

Is it possible to add the flaccl encoder in the future? libflac is still rather slow even with 4 threads (3:42 vs 1:03 for ~2,7GB)
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 14 June, 2013, 08:08:01 AM
@o-l-a-v error message with memory leaks won't appear in the next release, I forgot to turn off a debugging switch while working on artwork related memory leak.
About your other post,
-Since TAC now has 32 and 64bit builds, names of encoder do not include _64 any more in both builds. So, lame.exe that comes with 64bit TAC is, well, 64bit even if its name is lame.exe.
-Does lame report a warning/error related to this? Maybe mediainfo fails to extract tags?
-It's strange that error is limited to one tag field only. I'll try to reproduce it with faulty title tags (with "," in them).

@ChronoSphere
-Yes TAC doesn't have any support for replaygain in any way yet (I don't know if any of the encoders copy or write that info to output themselves, I don't care for replaygain). I plan to add it though one way or other.
-Added to-do list.
-I can reproduce that problem. It'll be fixed with the next version.

Thank you both.

Post by: ChronoSphere on 14 June, 2013, 12:47:03 PM
It can't, actually (or I haven't figured out how). You only have an option to scan the files after conversion, but that will mess up the album gain unless you only transcode complete albums, since it only bases the gain on the tracks that were transcoded together. Adding another track from the same album later on would mean rescanning again =/
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 14 June, 2013, 02:18:07 PM
Looks like flac.exe has an option "--replay-gain" which makes it calculate and write track and album RG values as tags, but I'm not sure how it computes album RG value. I added it as an option for the time being but I'll also look for a way to copy it from source for encoders that support it.

Post by: o-l-a-v on 15 June, 2013, 04:49:00 PM
Ozok: I think i've figured out about the problem regarding random ~80kbps outputs.

The thing is, I use the portable x64 on the C drive. I've selected D drive for output.
C is almost filled, D has lots of space. I think the problem occurs when C gets filled because the temp file is so huge it won't "fit" the C drive.
TAC shows no errors, i think it only ignores that particular file, and starts with the next.

It might be that encoder uses partial wav file, so bitrate is somehow lower than expected. I fixed temp wav files not being deleted right after encoder is done with them but I couldn't prepare a release because I got a lot going on now.

Thanks for the update! When using flaccl, the tags don't seem to be copied at all, even though the option is set. Same configuration, but using libflac, works fine.

There also seem to be a character encoding problem with the logs, running on Japanese locale the filenames are messed up as if TAC is using a different codepage than my own. Why don't you use utf-8 for logs?

About the overwrite option, I think it could be better to have some sort of "ask" pop-up, that aks you if you want to skip/overwrite/keep_both for current/all files in queue.

Looking forward to replaygain tag copy
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 20 June, 2013, 12:18:28 PM
i don't think flaccl has tag options. logs are saved as ansi but it shouldn't be difficult to save them as utf-8. i'll take a look at this tomorrow.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 20 June, 2013, 01:59:50 PM
I guess CUETools and foobar are adding tags by themselves then. Probably also the reason CUETools can copy replaygain tags over.

Btw, I also found a weird bug when converting from a network location: When I select the output path, it displays fine in the textbox, but the resulting path is different. Example:

input: \\SERVER\Music\Album\files.flac
output in gui: R:\album_test\
actual output: R:\album_test\ERVER\Music\Album\

I think the double backslash is throwing your program off, which is also why the first letter of the remote PC disappears

Post by: Trinket on 22 June, 2013, 12:09:20 AM
@ ozok: Thanks very much for adding the channel mode options to TAC

I was thinking that perhaps in the future you might consider adding some pop-up descriptions of certain options in your app, to make it easier for people to understand. For example, under LAME MP3 options you might include an info balloon when you hover over "Algorithm quality" to say something like "0 is highest, 9 is lowest", and likewise for VBR options where you have the 0-9 slider you may consider adding an info balloon there too.

Thank you for adding in so many detailed encoding options to your app. So many encoding apps don't give you all the options but have pre-configured settings only, and/or they may offer command line options that many (including to a great degree myself) won't know how to use.

Also, I like the 'bell' concept of your app. It's one of the most ancient musical sounds that's very central to human culture. I further like how you have the 'done.wav' as a standalone .wav so we can change it with any sound of your liking. I'm thinking I'm going for a more distinct 'bell' sound
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 22 June, 2013, 11:24:53 AM
@Trinket, I try to add these hint wherever possible. I tried to find the most annoying bell-ish sound. But as you say, you can replace it with whatever you want.

@ChronoSphere I couldn't take a look at network directory problem but now UTF-8 encoding is used for logs etc.

Please make a bug report if you encounter "List index out of bounds (X)." error when you enable filters. One user reported it but I couldn't reproduce it so far.

Make the batch file at <TAudioConverter_dirpath> , double-click the batch file to launch the program (rather than clicking on TAudioConverter.exe itself).

If the file settings.ini does not exist,
        then assume the user has never touched the app settings, so just start TAudioConverter and exit the batch file.

If the file settings.ini exists,
        then remove the line having the string Temp=<absolute_path_to_some_dir> and replace the line with Temp=<absolute_path_to_TAudioConverter_appdir>\Temp\ ***
        Create the directory <TAudioConverter_dirpath>\Temp
        Create a file with 10-digit-random-number filename and place it at <TAudioConverter_dirpath>
        Start TAudioConverter.exe and wait a few seconds to allow for the app to fully load and create the unwanted folder at %TEMP%\TAudioConverter
        Check if the 10-digit-random-number-filename exists . . . . . if yes, then the user has set Temp folder path to <TAudioConverter_dirpath>\Temp . . . . . and delete the folder %TEMP%\TAudioConverter . . . . . and delete the 10-digit-random-number file . . . . . and exit the batch file.

@ozok

This is a great converter, but I have one problem.

Whenever I convert tracks that have Japanese characters in them (either in the filename and/or tags), it doesn't convert at all. It would go through the process of decoding the audio, but when it gets ready to encode, nothing happens. I think it doesn't have Japanese language support, and I have a lot of tracks where the titles and/or tags are in Japanese.

Can you add Japanese language/character support for the filenames and tags, if possible.?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 12 July, 2013, 08:30:49 AM
@MDetector5 GUI itself has unicode support but it might be one of the backends that cause the problem. Which encoder do you use? I have some files with different charsets in their file names, but you can send me a problematic sample through PM.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: NePaC on 12 July, 2013, 09:47:22 AM
After I have read about MDetector5's problem, I tested the the lossy ecoders with a flacfile containing Japanese characters in the filename and tag.
No problems when using opus, wma, qaac and FFMpeg.

When I use NeroAAC, FHG AAC, and FdkAAC the year seems to be the only thing missing for some reason even so it shows up in the logs. -> Filename and tag are displayed correctly.

For OGG, MPC, MP3(LAME) and WavPack I get an Error, not creating a file at all.
When I look in the last line of the log I read this:
"Could not find -- C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Temp\TAudioConverter\03 - Artist - ?????&???.wav". --.

When using FdkAAC selecting VBR I have a silder from 1 to 5, I assumed it works similar like the FHG AAC encoder slider, but after encoding there is no difference between seleting 1 or 5 in filesize (in bytes). Instead it seems to me it's using the greyed out CBR value, changed it and the new file had the same average bitrate(behaves like ABR) as the CBR value.
Normally I don't use this encoder, so when I miss something...
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 12 July, 2013, 10:15:11 AM
@NePaC Thanks about FDK. Indeed even if you select VBR TAC passed CBR and bitrate. I fixed it.
TAC uses neroaactag to write tags for fhgaac, neroaac and fdk.  I used "-meta:year=" and it shows up as "Recoderd Date" in mediainfo.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: MDetector5 on 12 July, 2013, 01:35:46 PM
@ozok I think I found the problem involving Japanese characters.

I went back and converted a track containing Japanese titles/tags twice, once each for both WMA and MP3 output, with the filters disabled, and had no problem. When the filters are on however (I had both "normalize" and "invoke gain effect to prevent clipping" checked), it skips both the filter process and the encoding process, and the track doesn't convert at all.

Is there something you can do where the Japanese characters can work with the filters?

Also, when converting tracks to WMA, embedded album art isn't part of the converted track, even with the album art options enabled.

I didn't try with SoX filters enabled. So SoX might be the reason. Lord Mulder was modifying some tools to have unicode support, you might want to try SoX with unicode support compiled by his lordship. http://code.google.com/p/mulder/downloads/...mp;can=2&q= (http://code.google.com/p/mulder/downloads/detail?name=SoX-14.4.1-Win32-UTF8.zip&can=2&q=) I didn't try this myself, I didn't even download it but you can copy its content to overwrite files under \tools\sox. This might help. I made a note to use this in next TAC release.

About WMA cover art, AFAIK WMAEncode, which TAC uses to convert to wma, doesn't have an option for this. However, I found 3delite's WMA tagging component and it seems to have support for it. I also plan to use APE Tag and cue sheet components from 3delite.

@ozok I just put in SoX with unicode support. I can now enable filters, and convert tracks with Japanese titles/tags with no problem.

Can you include those in the next release, if possible? It would be most appreciated. Or is there somewhere I can download this tagging component?

ozok,

I found a bug in the 64-bit version of TAC. I converted a bunch of FLAC files to TVBR AAC, and any songs longer than about 2:30 were truncated. I uninstalled the 64-bit and installed the 32-bit, repeated the conversion, and all songs converted correctly.

Can you repeat it with older versions? Trimming function is faulty if you are using it. Maybe I should skip trying to add new features for next relase and make a bug fix.

I didn't turn on trimming, unless I clicked the button by mistake. Maybe it's turned on by mistake in the 64-bit build.

@NePaC Thanks about FDK. Indeed even if you select VBR TAC passed CBR and bitrate. I fixed it.
TAC uses neroaactag to write tags for fhgaac, neroaac and fdk.  I used "-meta:year=" and it shows up as "Recoderd Date" in mediainfo.
I'm surprised nobody noticed it before, probably hardly anyone used it.
About the year, somehow in your latest version I have no problems with it anymore.

I got intrested which tags the different lossy encoders in TAC write in the new lossy file. Somehow some information didn't show up in the new files.
The first thing I did was to give the flacfile a name with numbers, roman alphabet letters and some katakana characters. Looked like this:
Code: [Select]
03 - Artist - スクラップ&ビルド
 
Then I filled the 13 different Metadata fields foobar shows when clicking on the file properties. Where numbers are expected I added numbers, anywhere else roman alphabet letters and katakana.

The dark green marked fields show the modified flacfile I used. Tested both portable 32/64bit versions(0.9.0.1930), results were the same.
Here you can see the result I got:TAC - testresults (http://s1353.photobucket.com/user/NewsPaC/media/Hydrogenaudio/TAC-Tag_zps411ab046.png.html)
I apologize for the inconvenience, otherwise you can't really see anything.
What I noticed was that when using Lame, Musepack, Vorbis and WavPack and the filename contains a Japanese character an error occurs. When you remove the Japanese characters, it works fine.
Can anybody try to give a file the name I worte above in the codebox and encode to Lame and the others I wrote above? Want to exclude mistakes from my side or from my computer.

Post by: ozok on 18 July, 2013, 12:50:02 PM
I'm guessing the encoders you listed don't have unicode support. i.e. I can convert flac to flac without a problem. I did as you did: renamed my file to "03 - Artist - スクラップ&ビルド.flac" and edited some tag field to "スクラップ&ビルド" using foobar2000. FFMpeg seems to be able to decode flac file to wav without a problem. So I think these encoders don't have unicode support (I only tested lame BTW).

Logs in TAC seem to be unable to show file names or tags properly but they don't have unicode support either, so you can ignore them.

PS. image file you posted above is way too small or do I miss something?

So I think these encoders don't have unicode support (I only tested lame BTW).

The reason for the Flac column was that you can see what tags my file had before encoding.
When I use lame (3.99.5) in foobar the tags are displayed correctly.
I looked at the logs after encoding to opus, the tags in the log are messed up the same way as for lame, but somehow opus manages to display them right.
Next I tried using MP3tag copying the tags from the flacfile to the new mp3file and it works perfectly. I think maybe foobar copies the tags from the source after the file is encoded and from the tags it writes the filename? Like this it maybe possible to avoid the missing unicode support during encoding.

Some people seem to dislike it, but the link works fine, tested it before posting in Firefox and IE.
When you click on the link you see my picture in smaller size, click on the little symbole at the right lower corner of it (little magnifying glass with a + in it).
If you do that the picture is highlighted while the page is greyed out.
Again click on the symbole in the right lower corner, now you should be able to see the original and readable size of it.

@jkauff I get visited by them too sometimes. 

@NePaC Some of the encoders/taggers don't have support for all the fields. Extracting tag from source is not difficult. I'm currently working on a command line tagger tool (a bit like tag.exe) to handle all tagging done by TAC. Currently it only supports writing APEv2 tags but I plan to expand its functionality. Obviously its functionality will be limited to the tagging component I'm using.
Foobar2000 does on the fly encoding, so there are no temp files which can cause the trouble. I don't know if it renames files after encoding is done but is certainly an option. ie. TAC can create temp. wav files with names like 1.wav, 2.wav etc, lame creates 1.mp3, 2.mp3 etc and TAC renames them to properly (song1.mp3, song2.mp3 etc). But I'll try to finish tagging tool first because steps I mentioned aren't difficult to implement.
Edit: Cool table BTW.

@ozok

Any word on that system for tagging (including album art) tracks converted to WMA? I understand that you're working on a tagging tool for the various encoders...

I'm really liking the update, by the way.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 19 July, 2013, 04:47:51 PM
@MDetector5 Yes, I'm writing a console app to write several types of tags. I'm guessing it won't be a general tool like tag.exe because it is written to be used by TAC.
You can download it with portable TAC.exe from here:
32bit: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171..._32_portable.7z (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter_32_portable.7z)

Extract two exes from archives above and copy them to TAC folder, overwriting older tac.exe.

About tagger, at the moment it can write only write APEv2 tags (I use it write tags for ape, tta and tak at the moment). I can give more detail about how to use it if you want to use it manually.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 23 July, 2013, 06:15:21 PM
I've made some progress on some of the thing I wanted to implement. I need them to be tested before a release so I'm sharing TAC.exe+TTagger.exe so you can do some testing. Overwrite old exes if you want to try them.
-Tagging is improved. Monkey's audio, TAK, TTA now has tagging support. Also number of tag fileds for aac encoder has increased. It is done by a tagging tool I'm writing called TTagger. I'll release it as a seperate tool and provide information about how to use it because it has a strange way of doing things.
-Cue sheet support. It is limited and might have bugs because I don't have much samples. If you encounter problemsi please feel free to send samples as there is still room for improvement.
-Playback speed change option. You can change playback speed of audio files. This will effect the duration of output file and it is applied after trimming.
-Trimming works for "Extract audio" too now.

@ozok As for the tagger, I tested it out with a track, and converted it to various formats, and it's working pretty well for the most part. It does handle WMA well, but the artwork options still don't work for WMA.

As for playback speed, I'm going to have to look in to that, as it looks useful.

Tested your new version with the tagger like I did last time. result (http://i1353.photobucket.com/albums/q672/NewsPaC/Hydrogenaudio/TACttagger-randomremove_zpseab2635c.png)
+ all AAC-Encoder have Track Number and Total Tracks apart from QAAC which only has the Track Number
- except from QAAC all other AAC-Encoder can't display unicode in tags anymore

Form some reason the tool information (version, setting,...) aren't added to the file when I used the AAC-Encoder apart from QAAC like it did before. Didn't tested it with covers added.

Did another test (http://i1353.photobucket.com/albums/q672/NewsPaC/Hydrogenaudio/TACttagger-Tag_zps322e15ed.png) removing one tag from the source file like Artist Name to look what the programm is doing. Noticed something strange about it, when you remove the Performer from the tag, the new tag is rather identical to the source tag except that the disk number and total disk number are missing (don't really care about that) and the removed Performer tag.
I have one question regarding Artist Name = Performer, is it normal for a tagging program writing the Performer into the Artist Name and add the Artist Name to the Composer?

What I think is that most people only use Artist Name, Track Title, Album Title, Date, Genre, Track Number and perhaps Comment like I do. So I think you don't have to focus to much to the other not mentioned tag fields.
Keep up the good work.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 29 July, 2013, 12:50:21 PM
The exes I posted above only fix missing tag fields. I'll work on unicode file name support later.
Edit: I missed some unicode tags were missing as well. I'll work on this too.
Edit2: Encoder information etc is not included because new tool doesn't write them. TAC checks artist name first, if it is null, uses performer as artist. I don't know if that approach is right but it has been like this with TAC from the start.

I don't use the Album Artist tag or remove it when I see it but yes, iTunes looks for it. Even the iOS Music app is defaulted to Sort by Album Artist. I don't have any problem without it though and I actually sort by year/date renaming all the iTunes songs with a Windows software called iPodYearSort (http://www.pretentiousname.com/ipodyearsort/).

@NePaC I think I solved Japanese tags problem. TAC was using ANSI when it was writing tag info file. Now it uses UTF-8 and it seems to be working. You can download TTagger.exe below. I tried new tagger with Turkish (Öö, Çç, Şş, İı etc) tags and it is working fine.

Is it my imagination or is the new beta much faster? I converted a 450MB FLAC file to MP3 in about 15 seconds.

Comments:

1. The UI is starting to get a little crowded. I think you need to add some space above the destination controls to separate them a bit more from the settings controls.
2. I'm not sure the Wiki button is really that useful.
3. If MP3 is going to be the default setting when TAC starts, I think you should make the default value VBR -V2, which seems to be the setting of choice for most people these days.
4. The VBR slider should probably be in whole number increments. It took me a while to realize that was the -V setting. An alternative approach would be to use a number control, accompanied by a sentence or two about the speed/size/quality tradeoffs.

Once again, nice work, ozok!
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 23 August, 2013, 08:24:18 AM
@jkauff nothing much has changed regarding encoding process itself but starting encoding process should be much faster.
I agree that UI is getting crowded. I plan to move codec settings to a different form. With that I think, I can add more information for users. Also VBR slider for lame gives more control to user if you ask me.

I also would like to hear about new features like cue support, artwork for wma, chaning audio speed etc.

Regards.

Post by: ChronoSphere on 23 August, 2013, 10:36:26 AM
Gave it a try and ran into some problems:

- encoding to flaccl/flac results in invalid files. The size seems fine but they're missing all tags and foobar2000 says files are corrupted. TAK/WAVpack works fine

- no replaygain tag copied even though copy tags is ticked? As discussed somewhere here on HA, it's safe to copy RG tags for lossless -> lossless conversion

- reading the changelog, only wma artwork tagging is supported i guess, because for .tak they didn't work. Also, no tags at all for wavpack, as well.

Otherwise everything seems to be working well. Suggestion: add an option to edit encoder command line, or alternatively a "custom encoder" preset.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 23 August, 2013, 12:16:28 PM
Thanks for the test ChronoSphere.
-I couldn't reproduce that problem with my test set. Can you post output of flac encoder? Or maybe a sample?
-You are right. This because of new tag writing method. But as I said I'll add replaygain support soon.
-I couldn't get my tagger to write artwork properly to apev2 tags. TAC writes apev2 tags to formats you listed so they don't have artwork support yet.

Tag type to write is FLAC.
Starting to write tags.
Saving to file.
Saved to file: r:\ACATE\Music\Accel World\Accel World ED Single\01 →unfinished→.flac

Two things I see is that it skips some "foreign metadata". Also, handling network paths is still messy when telling it to recreate folder structure
Comparing the source file to the output one, the tags are seen as FLAC (FLAC) at source in MP3Tag, but the column is blank for the output file - as are all tags, except for the image tag, which appears just fine. If it helps, I told TAC to embed the artwork, embedded first.

It's also interesting that even though the log is in utf-8, some of the → appear corrupted. And MP3Tag cannot remove or write tags to those files.

@ChronoSphere I still cannot reproduce that problem. In my case, all the tags and artwork are copied and only one tag field (album artist) is missing. Perhaps the problem is with your file? Can you send me a sample? Log is UTF-8 but some of the backends don't have unicode support so they print stuff wrong.

BTW I might have solved the problem with "Create Folder Tree" and network source. I couldn't test it because I'm not on a network but it should work. This is just 64-bit portable exe (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter_64_portable.7z) and can be copied into the folder of beta I posted earlier. Also it has new GUI layout.

Thanks ozok, I really like the new interface.

Two small annoyances for now:

- "[LossLess]" = "[Lossless]". Why the capital L?
- "[Hybrid] WavPack" -> "[Lossless/hybrid] WavPack". David never capitalizes hybrid, anywhere. Also it's better to remember the user that WavPack is lossless before and it can become hybrid.

edit1:
- You should add the option to select the switch "--no-delay" as well for qaac. For what I understood it will make .m4a files without delay so they can be used right away in video muxing (2.0, 5.1, 7.1). More info here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=85135&view=findpost&p=820872).
- AAC extension in Settings -> Order alphabetically but keep m4a selected.
- AAC extension in Settings -> All lowercase
- "[Lossless] OptimFROG"?
- "[Lossless] Shorten"? Optional, I don't think anyone uses this anymore.
- Agree with I don't remember who to change the default codec to MP3 V2 or V0. Actually I would change it to AAC (qaac) but I guess MP3 is fine.
- "[Lossy] MP2 (TwoLAME)"?

Thanks for your comments about GUI. As jkauff said, it was becoming a bit crowded. Also, carrying codec settings to a different form gives me more room to add additional options if needed.

@eahm, It must have been a typo. And I'll change wavpack's info too.

Thanks for the quick fix; now adding files and conversion to MP3 worked.

One thing I don't understand, though.
The FLAC files I converted have valid ReplayGain-Tags (album and track). It was my understanding that (when selecting "Apply ReplayGain" (Track gain)) TAC is supposed to apply the RG track value (e.g. -6dB) to the FLAC audio before or while it is converted to MP3. The resulting MP3 should then be down by 6dB in volume and a RG scanning of that MP3 should result in something like 0dB.
But my MP3s came out with the same volume and RG values as the FLACs had.

To tell you the truth I don't know much about ReplayGain. I'm trying to understand how it works and how it should be applied. This is what causes delay in this release. So far, what TAC does is, it encodes files and makes backends scan and write replaygain tags to output files. So no information from source is involved at that point. But from my understanding, you can copy replaygain tags if convertion is from lossless to lossless. If anything is wrong/missing with this process please don't hasitate to correct me.

Post by: db1989 on 27 August, 2013, 09:00:40 AM
The current behaviour sounds ideal. Lossless files can have tags copied to the destination as, of course, the audio and hence the RG values will not change. Lossy encoding may alter amplitudes, so, even though it might not be the end of the world to copy tags from the source, it’s highly advisable to ignore them and re-scan the new lossy file.

In relation to what sundance said, you would need to provide two options: (1) copy or re-compute RG tags as normal, or (2) take the RG values from the source and apply them to the intermediate uncompressed stream so that the adjustment is directly written into the physical audio of the destination file.

I’m not sure about the latter. Especially for MP3 and AAC, which have their own lossless ways of adding universally compatible adjustments to gain. But if others have some good reason to do it, it’s a valid option to offer them.

Just to clarify:

Lossy encoding may alter amplitudes, so, even though it might not be the end of the world to copy tags from the source, it’s highly advisable to ignore them and re-scan the new lossy file.
I mean that the alteration may or may not be perceptually relevant (and, of course, we can’t say without ABXing), but it’s by far the best practice to recompute the RG anyway.

This is more valid than my wording there might have suggested. I think it would be a good and relevant thing to include as an option.

@ozok,

To tell you the truth I don't know much about ReplayGain. I'm trying to understand how it works and how it should be applied.

HOW it works is described in detail here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReplayGain) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReplayGain) or here (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=ReplayGain_1.0_specification) (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=ReplayGain_1.0_specification).

And this is just my 2 cents about a possible implementation of ReplayGain in TAudioConverter.
(I used this in an old project of mine to convert lossless files to LAME)

Let's say you have a source file with these RG values (MediaInfo):
Code: [Select]
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_GAIN                    : -4.61 dB
REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_PEAK                    : 1.000000
Replay gain                              : -3.73 dB
Replay gain peak                         : 1.000000

... and you want to apply album gain, you'll apply a negative "gain" of -4.61 dB (scale factor = 0.588166), of course assuming you've selected a reference level of 89 dB.
Applying positive gain values require some attention for possible clipping (see peak levels).

Code: [Select]
function GainToScaleFactor(dBGain: Extended): Extended;
// (0 dB -> SF = 1.0,   -6.0 dB -> SF = 0.501)
// ScaleFactor = 10^(dbGain/20)
begin
  result := JclMath.TenToY(dbGain/20);
end;

You could use either LAME's command line (--scale 0.588) or (maybe better) SoX, if you'd like to use dithering/noise shaping (where SoX does an excellent job).
After that step, the RG tags should be either recalculated or simply adjusted with the scale factor, like:
Code: [Select]
 REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_GAIN                    : -0.00 dB
REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_PEAK                    : 0.588166
Replay gain                              : +0.98 dB
Replay gain peak                         : 0.588166

And you're done.
This has the advantage of being usable with ALL MP3 players, since most of them don't honor RG tags.

Additionally you could calculate and add "SoundCheck" values (for iDevices); I couldn't find detailed information on that, though.
The basic calculation is (can't remember the source):
Code: [Select]
function GainToSoundCheckStr(dBGain: Extended): String;
// (0 dB -> SC = 000003E8 (=1000),   -6.0 dB -> SC = 00000F8D (=3981))
// SoundCheck = 1000 * 10^(-dbGain/10)
begin
  result := IntToHex(Round(1000 * JclMath.TenToY(-dbGain/10)),8);
end;

These hex values are stored in a "iTunNORM" comment tag.

Of course there's lossless ways of applying RG to MP3/AAC, but you'll have to use "mp3Gain" and "aacGain" to postprocess your files after the encoding. It's debatable if this lossless approach is neccessary, since you convert from lossless source anyway.

@sundance I plan to offer lossless approach as first option and permantly applying gain as second one. But I want to first make sure that lossless way works smoothly.

@eahm I guess not, because I'm using mp3gain, aacgain etc.

You could use either LAME's command line (--scale 0.588) or (maybe better) SoX, if you'd like to use dithering/noise shaping (where SoX does an excellent job).

When gain adjustment is applied to the intermediate PCM before passing it to encoder, it's better to be processed/passed in the form of float PCM as long as encoder supports reading it. No need of dither/noise shape in this case.
IIRC, SoX uses int32 as internal PCM format, therefore it might not be an optimial choice here.

I'm perfectly fine with a lossless approach using mp3gain/aacgain.
The reason I didn't use it in my project was the nasty habit of mp3gain (v1.4.6) to use APEv2 tags. Now that I see v1.5.2 has a switch to force using ID3v2 tags (almost) everything looks good. And I think the gain granularity of 1.5 dB doesn't hurt, although I did not test that.

The only "glitches" I found:
a) "mp3gain /r /s i file.mp3" applies a track gain found in the given file correctly. But it doesn't correct the RG tags correspondingly. So if your file has a track gain of -9.2 dB, mp3gain applies 6*1.5 dB (negative gain of 9 dB) but leaves the RG tag unchanged with -9.2 dB instead of correcting it to -0.2 dB. So an RG aware player like foobar applies another -9.2 dB.
b) mp3gain/aacgain writes ID3v2.4 tags, even when the source file has ID3v2.3 tags. Some (many?) mp3 players don't support v2.4 tags correctly.

Both of these issues would make an additional (but easy to implement, imho) step (recalculation of RG values & changing v2.4 to v2.3 tags) neccessary.

A little bit off topic, but connected to mp3gain vs. applying appropiate volume gain before encoding:
I tested that on a (heavily compressed CD track (Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke), which has a RG track gain of -9.46 dB and a DynamicRange of 6.
I encoded the file with latest LAME (-V2) in 2 ways:
a) Plain encoding with mp3gain postprocessing (mp3gain /g -6)
b) Applying -9dB volume correction before encoding.

Both MP3 files have the same volume (~ +0.4 dB RG track gain), but file a) has 5.7 MB and file b) only 5.5 MB.
Does LAME do a better job with "unclipped" of lower volume files?
Just a thought...

Unfortunatelly my hearing isn't good enough to ABX both versions.

Since many of filter-internal calculations (FFT convolution or something) is done with floating point, that impression is natural and correct in a sense.

It seems to be only one single after all, other files seem to encode fine. I'll send you a PM as soon as the file has finished uploading, since it's the full length FLAC, posting which would be against the ToS. Since idk what exactly is causing the problem, I can't cut it to a shorter sample.

Quote
BTW did you have a chance to test the fix related to network paths?
Yes, the path is better now. When recreate folder tree is selected, it now creates the folder with the full server name (e.g. SERVER\Music\ instead of ERVER\Music\) Though ideally, I think the server part should be treated as a drive letter, meaning if the path was \\SERVER\Music\Artist, the recreated folder structure should cut the SERVER part and start recreating from \Music\Artist imho. (or just add an option to trim n folders from the folder structure)

Also one more thing: tag copy doesn't seem to be unicode-aware, for example when I have ????? as artist, the resulting file won't have any tags. Another example would be "children’s domain", which turns into "childrena??s domain" upon conversion. (note how it's ´, not ').

Ozok: I've stumbled upon some FLAC files, that when converting to mp3 with TAC (Both newest beta and last stable), your program don't manage to get the "artist" information over to the MP3's.
I've tried tagging the FLAC's with Foobar and TagScanner before converting, no difference. I even tried to transcode to FLAC v1.3.0 (with foobar), but that did not change anything either.
I've sent you a PM with link to download a sample file. Hope you can fix this problem

TAC seems to not be handling unicode well after all. Trying to debug if locale has an effect on whether the tags can be copied fine, I switched from Japanese to English (US) locale. Flac conversion now works fine (file playable, tags copied ok), however mp3 conversion now fails with
"Can't open R:\tac_beta\\01 ?unfinished?.mp3 for reading"

Similarly, TAK now fails encoding because it cannot read non-unicode filenames: "01 ?unfinished?.wav                .......... Error reading source"
-> Suggestion: use a randomly generated ASCII filename to work around unicode filename incompatibilities, similar to how foobar2000 does it.

As for the tags problem, it looks like running JP locale makes TAC not use unicode for tag copy, since all the characters in the tags are contained in the codepage. This ends up messing something up in the copy process that results in an unplayable file.

What's worse though, the Audio MD5 changes after conversion, even when I disable any tag/replaygain processing. I double checked the lossless encoding settings are set to keep everything as original. The MD5 sum remains the same if I use foobar to convert the same file(s), so it shouldn't be a problem with my PC. Tested the latest beta.

Artist info is stored as composer on the original FLAC, or after conversion?
I guess part is used for CD count. I tag using TagScanner. The fields i use there is:
track, tracktotal, cd, cdtotal, title, artist, album, album artist, genre, year.

Whats left after conversion is normally:
track, title, artist, album, genre, year.

The FLAC i shared makes the outcome miss artist aswell. Thats all i know.

Post by: ozok on 01 October, 2013, 01:34:11 PM
@eahm, sorry I thought in my native language. What I meant was, TAC doesn't pass any tag options (--title, --artist etc) to qaac, maybe this was what caused it. But after disabling copying tags from source, I can see encoder information So, it looks like ttagger overwrites all previous tags and removes encoder information. If this is an important information, I can make TAC to write it.

I asked because I thought I missed a changelog of qaac where nu774 said it was possible to not write the tool tag. I like it better without
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: nu774 on 01 October, 2013, 09:48:06 PM
No, there's no such option.
qaac always writes tool tag as well as iTunSMPB (in case of AAC, when --gapless-mode=1 is not specified).
Missing tool tag is not disastrous, but missing iTunSMPB is.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: nu774 on 02 October, 2013, 01:11:18 AM
Have tried with NeroAAC, FhGAAC, FDKAAC. iTunSMPB is lost for all cases.
As I have said, tool tag being lost is not that serious, but please don't remove iTunSMPB.
Without it, resulting file won't play gaplessly.

It's probably ttagger.exe of TAudioConverter that accidentally removes tool tag and iTunSMPB, so I'm asking to ozok, not you.
--no-tool is possible, but I haven't seen that kind of switch in other encoder. Do you really want it ?

@nu774, I didn't realize iTunSMPB was being overwritten. I've found "pgap" field in http://code.google.com/p/mp4v2/wiki/iTunesMetadata (http://code.google.com/p/mp4v2/wiki/iTunesMetadata). Is there any other way? FDK, for instance, offers two options for it.

I guess tags written by encoder is currently not preserved at all in case of MP4.
If you are not intentionally erasing existing tags, then there should be some bug around MP4 metadata handling of ttagger.exe.
pgap is used by iTunes but qaac does not write it.  However, basically you don't have to care about such specific details.
If ttagger.exe is intended to be a general purpose tagger, then it has to do proper merge.
However in your case, existing tags (written by encoder) and new tags (written by ttagger) will not conflict unless you have a reason to rewrite special tags such as iTunSMPB or tool written by encoders.
Therefore, I suppose just appending (or prepending) to existing tags should be enough.

Post by: ozok on 02 October, 2013, 07:33:17 AM
I'm using a tagging library from http://www.3delite.hu/ (http://www.3delite.hu/) to write tags, because I don't have knowledge to write it from start. But since I have the source code for it, I'll try to find where it overwrites older tags.

Edit: How can I see if gapless flag is set without playing the file?
Title: TAudioConverter

@nu774 I can see a tag that appears with qaac, fdkaac (if gappless mode includes itunes), fhgaac and nero. It is "----" and it's value is something like this and its value changes with "--no-delay" option for qaac:

You can inspect tags in m4a with AtomicParseley or something.
If you want to inspect MP4 structure more closely, then I recommend you L-SMASH boxdumper.
(you can use "mp4box -std -diso" or "mp4file --dump" instead, but I prefer boxdumper output).

There are still problems when running TAC under Japanese locale, as described in my previous post. Also, if TAC is set to overwrite files if they already exist, it doesn't seem to work: I see the old file and another one named 0.flac

"Copy tags" triggers the "no tags, invalid flac" behavior, "embed artwork, embedded first" doesn't embed anything (at least foobar can't read it)

Remote debugging isn't going to be that useful I think, so you should probably just switch to it yourself and see what is going wrong there.
The setting is in control panel -> region and language -> administrative -> language for non-unicode programs.

With this version, the audio md5 stays the same after conversion, that's fixed. I did double check to not have any processing with the last beta, but it still resulted in a changed md5.

Post by: ozok on 03 October, 2013, 08:58:17 AM
Thanks for the explanation and mp4box tip nu774.

@ChronoSphere at last I can reproduce your problem. But I have no idea to solve it, it only seems to appear with flac and when writing tags. Other formats I tested (mp3 and aac) seems to be working fine. Also backslashes look like Yen symbol now in my system but a quick search tells me it is normal. I haven't tested overwrite options after adding renaming method yet, but thanks for the warning; I think I can solve this fast.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 03 October, 2013, 12:12:02 PM
Yes, backslash as yen symbol is normal, though I don't know the rationale behind that. I tested the other formats and image embedding doesn't work for any lossless formats for me. Tags are only broken for flac (and flacCL), so it shouldn't be related to the encoders itself.

APEv2 tag is used for most of the lossless codecs and it doesn't work at the moment for some reason; artwork is embedded actually, data is there but it can't be viewed by other software.

Yes, nothing wrong with that but the main feature I was interested in was to completely remove the Tool tag or not write it at all. The switch "--tag too:" leaves it empty. I think it's more professional and better for business projects, also it saves a lot of times instead of using other tools to remove it after the conversion.

Don't know if it's the LAME-encoder (probably is) or TAC that causes this, but I found a strange error.
Using newest TAC beta, together with Lame3100a2 build, choosing a lower vbr setting than 5, does not show numbers grater than 5 or sometimes 6 when tags are viewed in Foobar (codec_profile tag).

Example: I encode with vbr 8. Viewing the file in foobar, codec_profile tag says "LAME VBR 6".

Yeah, that's why it's temporarily on dropcanvas, if anyone say anything I'll take them off (foobar2000ea and eac3to + ArcSoft Codec Pack as well).

dropcanvas is hosted by CloudFlare which is in San Francisco, I will probably need to change host  Where is this stuff legal? Spain, Netherlands?

RareWares is hosted by "New Dream Network, LLC"/DreamHost which is in Los Angeles. Where did I read it was hosted in Brazil to be able to keep the files publicly available?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: eahm on 18 November, 2013, 02:59:41 PM
Too late to modify, let me do this 100% legal, I've already took off foobar2000 from inside foobar2000ea because of its license. I am taking down the small personalization of TAC since nothing much changed other than the libraries and I will remove Apple and Fraunhofer libraries from foobar2000ea. Taking down eac3to + ArcSoft Codec Pack also because of DTS and ArcSoft licenses.

Done.

ozok, I will keep using foobar2000 for my ALAC and AAC converting purposes but I think I am finally going to switch to TAC for every other test. Few questions:

- Is the tagging done only with TTagger or that's just for MP3? Every other encoder tags automatically or it's done in what way?

- Can you please add "-r auto" for qaac so qaac will use all the SoX libraries nu774 integrated? See here: https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/news...se223refalac123 (https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/news/qaacrelease223refalac123)

- Does TAC use SoX for resampling?

- IMO, it's better if TAC creates a temp folder inside TAC's folder instead of %temp%.

Thanks.

ozok,
I have few questions in the previous post, also: when I convert to AAC with qaac.exe and foobar2000/qaac I get two bit-identical files, the file I get from TAC/qaac is different, why? -V63 is the only command used.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 18 November, 2013, 05:14:21 PM
@eahm

1) For all encoders (except Musepack) TTagger can be used to write tags. For FLAC, FLACCL, Ogg Vorbis, Opus and Lame users can select to use TTagger or encoder itself (Ogg and Opus changes aren't available in beta release but I commited changes to repo).
2) Okay, I'll add "-r auto" option.
3) It uses FFMpeg but passes "-af aresample=resampler=soxr" to make FFMpeg use SoX resampling library. I guess this is the same but I actually didn't check it.
4) That might be done for portable version.

As replay to your other post, I think it is different because TTagger writes tags. It shouldn't be different if you use the same versions of QAAC and disable tags in all encoders.

I've converted a flac file with both foobar2000 and TAC using same encoder options. Encoder is neroaac and I used 128kbps.

Lengths of output files:
Foobar2000: 3:55.693 (10 394 076 samples)
TAC (2609 beta) (without tag writing): 3:55.693 (10 394 076 samples)
TAC (2609 beta) (tags written by TTagger): 3:55.716 (10 395 072 samples)
TAC (0.9.0) (tags written by NeroAACTag): 3:55.693 (10 394 076 samples)

Looks like TTagger adds some samples to the end of the file. I don't know if this is wrong but I'll report to the mp4 tag library's author.

- all in all, I don't think you should pass trimming values per default, as changing the audio md5 sum appears to be a critical encoding error at first glance.
- tagging with TTagger makes CUETools choke on non-ASCII filenames with a "cannot retrieve metadata" error message, so I disabled that.
- .tak album art embedding still doesn't work
- copying replaygain files when output lossless works as expected as well

I'm working on artwork in ape tags.
Any update on this? :3
I'm assuming this will bring album art tags for tak, wv, mpc and ape itself?

Also, a request for another mode for creating a directory structure. From what I see currently if you have your music in say, C:\source\path\music\artist\albumA, albumB etc, add the music folder and set output to D:\dest\path\music, the resulting paths will be either

- D:\dest\path\music\source\path\music\artist\albumA, albumB etc
- D:\dest\path\music\albumA, albumB etc
- D:\dest\path\music\all music files

Can we please also have the following:
- D:\dest\path\music\artist\albumA, albumB

Basically, only replicate the folder structure starting from the input folder, not from the start of the path

edit: Also, I don't know why, but I'm getting a lot of md5 audio sum mismatches on some, but not all files I'll pm you the link to samples when they finish uploading. Btw, the source files from those albums report as "correct" rip, while the converted one are reported as "not a correct gapless rip" - trimming is not enabled.

suggestion: why not use the corresponding decoding features of lossless formats to decode to wav instead of ffmpeg? Who knows what it might be discarding upon extraction. And since you already package them to be able to encode, why not?

Yes this is the main reason why I'm trying to write a tagging tool myself.
I don't remember if I said this before but, at the moment I can write cover art to ape files but no player so far managed to show them. Image stream is definitely copied to ape file and foobar2000 and other software players play the file fine.

I've downloaded samples you sent me and encoded them to flac. I've used foobar's "Bit-Compare" tool and it says files are identical, foobar also reports same amount of samples for each file. I've used ffprobe to double check and result is the same. I'm guessing your copy of TAC still doesn't have the option to turn-off trimming completely.

I think ffmpeg works fine as general purpose decoder. The reason it is used as decoder is that TAC is actually a fork of TX264 (x264 GUI written by me) and ffmpeg was used as audio decoder there in that project.

Here is a link to the build I used to get results I talked above: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171...it_build2762.7z (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171/tac_32bit_build2762.7z) (includes new stuff like CD ripper, dts encoding etc.)

Post by: ozok on 15 January, 2014, 04:58:18 AM
I should've said that this isn't a beta release, just a snapshot to see if some changes works for ChronoSphere.

@o-l-a-v I know about that but I couldn't find the source of it.

BTW you may ask why TAC runs a seperate process to do CD ripping. CD ripper library (CDRip122.dll) and it's wrapper don't have 64 bit versions (AFAIK). So I had to create a 32 bit executable that can be called from TAC.exe and communicate with it some way.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 15 January, 2014, 06:06:08 AM
Tested the new build, ticking the "don't use trimming" results in correct audio checksums. Is there any reason why it's not ticked by default? Why use trimming anyway (except when the user wants to actually cut out a part of the song)?

BTW, if you have files queued, then go to cd ripper and back, it automatically starts the encoding process. You probably know that since that's just a snapshot but I thought I let you know. Oh and CD ripper doesn't seem to have unicode support yet, non-latin characters appear as ????
Do you plan to have some sort of accuraterip/CTDB integration later on?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 15 January, 2014, 12:57:23 PM
Ah, one more thing: please allow to edit the command line parameter for the selected codec, or rather a possibility to define a custom codec.
Main reason being, TAC currently only uses takc in single-threaded mode it seems - encoding with TAC reports a speed of 100x, while CUETools with custom command line (4 threads) manages 200x+
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 16 January, 2014, 06:25:51 AM
Trimming will be disabled by default from now on. I've also added an option to start encoding as soon as cd ripping is done. If it is not selected, after ripping cd tracks to wav files, it'll just return to main window. I have Turkish and English CDs and they seem to be working fine. I'll try to find a non-latin CD.

How do you run takc in multithread mode? I couldn't see any options for that.

@o-l-a-v I've fixed your problem.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 16 January, 2014, 06:51:48 AM
That avatar.
Ahem. Newest takc.exe has a -tn# switch which accepts 1-4(default:1) as parameter. So for my CPU it would be better to use -tn4 than have 4 processes running.
Btw, it's similar for the flaccl, since it's using the GPU, having more than one process for it slows it down, at least on my GPU (260GTX).
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 16 January, 2014, 09:18:16 AM
Silly of me, I saw -cpu switch but missed that one. I'll try it when I have time, adding that option for tak is easy.

Apophis is my favourite goa'uld these days.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 16 January, 2014, 11:11:42 AM
BTW, I messed with some files and I somehow can't reproduce my 200x results with tak, I think CUETools was still counting speed even for files that got skipped because of being non-ansi (it doesn't have a workaround for that, unlike TAC ), so the results were inaccurate.

I now have following timings:
TAC: 4x processes, 1x thread, m4, 0:46, 131x
CUETools: 1x process, 4x threads, m4, 0:50, 123x
foobar: 1x processes, 4x threads, m4,  0:50, 123x
foobar: 4x processes, 1x threads, m4, 0:35, 180x

Until TBeck optimizes threading, it looks like single threading + multiple instances are the way to go.

TAC has quite some overhead though, I guess the whole process needs streamlining.
For example, I have a dual CD album which has 57 tracks in total. I loaded it into RAM to avoid as many I/O bottlenecks as possible, the output is being written to RAM as well. Same goes for the temp directory. The results are as follows:

TAC:
- adding files to list: 0:15
- generating command list: 0:10
- convert: 0:46
-------------------------------------
- total: 1:11

CUETools:
- adding files to list: 0:00
- checking CTDB: 0:02
- convert: 0:50
-------------------------------------
- total: 0:52

Foobar2000:
- adding files to list: 0:01
- selecting preset: 0:02
- convert: 0:36
-------------------------------------
- total: 0:39


I'd also like to request the following:
- an option to transfer gain for lossless -> lossy/lossy -> lossy conversion (with a warning the values might be off, displayed when ticking it)
- for TAK: add an option to turn on -md5 and -v switches (saving checksum to file and verify on encode), also the maximum preset currently used is -4, there is also -4e and -4m, can we have those please?
- for FLAC: --verify option as above

I hope you don't take my feedback negatively, your program is still the closest to what I need to painlessly keep folder structure when converting, which is quite important to me

As for goa'ulds, I think Baal is first place for me... followed by Apophis.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 16 January, 2014, 01:58:47 PM
Well, TAC runs many backends to do some tasks that other tools might be doing themselves (extracting cover art, getting file info etc), I think this causes extra time.

I ripped a CD (Turkish tags) to m4a and flac, entering some tags myself in Japanese (黒の契約者, a tag from a sample you've sent me). Created files have proper tags and file names. So I'm guessing problem is at querying from freedb.

I'll add the options you proposed. And feedbacks are always welcome.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 16 January, 2014, 03:01:30 PM
Yes, your tagging already seems to be UTF-8 aware. Briefly looking around the freedb page, it seems like you are just assuming the query result being ANSI, not testing if it might be UTF-8. I'm not sure if they are using UTF-8 with or without a BOM, but if it's with a BOM, then you can test if the query result contains 0xEF,0xBB,0xBF as the first 3 characters and switch to UTF-8 parsing if needed. Source: wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark).
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 20 January, 2014, 11:51:19 AM
I'll try to find information about how to query tags for CDs from freedb in order to write my own library/class. Currently I'm using newac library for that.

A bit off-topic and I'm a bit uncomfortable with the subject, but one ad company contacted me to have their ads in TAC installer. Now, I don't like ad supported software myself and I considered rejecting the offer right away but revenues from that may help me work on TAC full time. I got great help and feedback from this community so far, so I was wondering what you guys think about it.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 21 January, 2014, 05:09:44 PM
As long as it's only the installer and we have the option to untick and install the software only, I don't really mind. Having ads in the program itself or worse, having to install adware to get full features is a big no-no for me though.

Also, concerning lossless->lossy RG transfer, I don't think it will work, as only copying the gain tags essentially produces non-spec-conforming files, which only foobar handles "properly" so far. The spec states that a file has to have the following 4 tags: album gain+peak, track gain+peak. The gain is nearly identical between lossless and lossy, but the peak is not. Calculating the track peak would be possible during or after conversion, but the album peak is much harder since you don't have any means to see if those tracks contain all the tracks of the album (album tag only tells you they're from same album, but not the song count).

Same issue happens with lossy->lossy, so I guess it's better to leave RG transfer lossless only after all.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 21 January, 2014, 06:44:18 PM
@ChronoSphere
I think using protocol 6 instead of 5 solves the problem. I bypassed cddb library's char encoding detection and assumed returned result was always UTF-8 and it seems to work. There used to be some problems with some Turkish chars ("ı" being converted to "i" for instance) and now everything is OK here. I've uploaded TCDRipper.exe to dropbox in case you want to try it yourself: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171/TCDRipper.7z (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9617171/TCDRipper.7z) place it to ..\tools\TCDripper folder. I hope this solves the problem.

If copying RG from lossless to lossy will break the files, I won't add it.

Also thanks for your insight about ads.

Yes, CDRipper is now properly recognizing Japanese characters when querying DB. Though there is a weird issue... it only seems to be ripping track count - 1, do you have an index error somewhere?

Converting now works as expected for me, verify+md5sum and sums match out of the box. But maybe do add the MT switch for TAK encoding, it should be useful in the future anyway. Now the only things I'm really missing is depth adjustment for folder tree copying and ape tags ^^

Some thoughts:

- why not generate as many command lines as there are processes and start encoding, generating the rest in the background? Won't make it faster, but it will _appear_ to be faster. Which is also important
- I don't know if it's possible, but an option to "move/copy other files/folder from input directory" would be great to have - for example, I have a "Files" folder in each album directory which contains the cuesheet, accurip, log and the scan files, in some cases another subfolder with the DVD_VIDEO, etc.

edit:
- for the CD ripper, some sort of CTDB+AccurateRipDB querying would be nice to have.

Latest beta seems good  But I noticed some strange behavior with TTagger:
Original FLAC: Track: 1, Total tracks: 12, Disc: 1, Total discs: -
Output Opus using TTagger: Track: 1, Total tracks: - , Disc: 1, Total discs: 1
It removes the "Total tracks" tag, and fills "Total discs" with "1"

I tried to change total disc to "2" before converting. Output, TTagger inserted "1" instead.
Hope you'll fix that issue, and make TTagger also transer the "Total Tracks" tag

@ChronoSphere I've fixed cd ripper error. As you said it was some stupid little index problem.

@kennedyb4 max. parallel process count will be 16 instead of 8.
@o-l-a-v "Total Tracks" value is definitely extracted from source. TAC tries to insert default values when a tag is empty so I'm guessing this is why some fields are created when they don't exist in the source.

Hello! It's great that Tau has been greatly improved, but I'm not sure about the new interface. Apart from the visual part, I'd like to mention two issues:

1. Normally, I convert into AC3, and now under settings, there's a "Dialogue normalization" feature. The default value, for some reason, isn't 0, and I can't set it to 0 either. Is there anything I'm not considering here?

2. Also, I don't know how to change the effects ("guard against clipping", etc). (Incidedantly, I'd like to ask if "guard against clipping" should always be set to "true".)

Thank you for time and help!
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 29 January, 2014, 01:35:08 AM
Thanks all for using the new version. I've alread started for working on the next release.

@Vivadavid
1 - I used values stated in the FFMpeg manual. Dialog norm. values range between -31 and -1 and -31 is the default value. I can add an option to disable it all together.
2 - You check "Enable" and set other values. I don't remember why "Guard against clipping" was checked as default but I think it was something the community suggested.
I think new UI is tidier.

@eahm thanks, I should have checked that one myself. Anyway, it'll be updated in the next release.

@o-l-a-v IIRC the previous update was last summer so lots of changes accumulated! Seriously, thank you all, I couldn't come up with the 80% of the TAC's features if you guys hand't suggested them.

@mudlord I considered this before. I think I'll do this if ad-support route doesn't work out.

Post by: Vivadavid on 29 January, 2014, 09:00:12 AM
@Ozok

Thank you for your quick answer.

1. Yes, it'd be great if there was an option to disable normalization, as normalizing in my opinion, doesn't make much sense when dealing with videos: correct me if I'm wrong, please. By the way, the way it works now, you can't disable it (there's always a value different from 0), and yet, the Options summary always indicates "normalize: false".

2. I still don't know how to check "enable" to be able to change the value of "Guard against clipping" and other features.

Thanks again!

1 - 0 isn't in the option's allowed value range, it is between -1 and -31 so you can't set it to 0. I don't know if setting it to -31 (default value) has the same effect as not setting at all but since it is default, it should be. "Normalize: False" at the right shows the state of the normalization option at the "Audio Effects/filters" window, not AC3's option.
2 - Enable unchecked: http://i.imgur.com/Fiwynyy.png (http://i.imgur.com/Fiwynyy.png) filters/effects not applied

You could hardcode a check a la if(value >= 0) normalization=false or something.

Post by: Vivadavid on 29 January, 2014, 10:49:51 AM
@Ozok

1. It'd be great if other people could give us some information about the normalization values, especially if -31 means there's no normalization. In any case, if you're going to add an option to disable, that's great.

2. At last, I found it! It was on the tool bar under "Filters" (I was looking somewhere else). By the way, one of the filters reads "Change volume". Isn't it the same as (or at least, very similar to) normalization?

Thanks!

About the embedding of album art. Could you make it possible to embed the embedded album art from source to output IF there was no external album art found? Would be great if I did not have to change that setting all the time.
TAC says "External artwork first", but atm it really just means "If there is external album art, i'll embed it". Or so it seems. Tried to convert ogg to mp3, album art was not transferred when "External artwork first" was enabled.

EDIT: It did not transfer album art when I enabled "Embedded artwork first" either. Bug? (OGG->MP3)
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 01 February, 2014, 10:48:35 AM
Yes there is a bug with artwork embedding in 0.9.1. It will be fixed with the next release. Also "External artwork first" should do what you ask, it should search for external artwork files (folder.jpg, cover.jpg etc) and if they don't exist it should try embedded artwork. But said bug might be preventing that.

Next release is actually ready, but I have added a tag editor and I am testing it now.

Excellent program, can you include a lossless multiple files to one file converter? (like foobar).

Cheers.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 04 February, 2014, 06:01:43 AM
Thanks for the release, about the folder depth setting, it is currently possible to do this:

\\server\Music\FolderA\B\C -> Z:\server\Music\FolderA\

But not

\\server\Music\FolderA\B\C -> Z:\Music\FolderA\B\C

Basically, it's treating the server name as a folder instead of a drive letter.
Ideally I'd want to be able to cut off folders from the left side of the path, also.

Post by: Vivadavid on 04 February, 2014, 07:17:32 AM
Ozok, thank you for the latest release and for including the disabling of normalization. I'm doing the right disabling it, right? It's not my intention to change the volume of audios.

I still have a doubt about something and I'd really appreciate it if you or anybody could explain this to me. What is the difference between:

1. Dialogue Normalization (under Settings).
2. Normalize (under Filters).
3. Change volume (under Filters).

?


Thanks!

Post by: eahm on 04 February, 2014, 12:33:07 PM
Sorry eahm, I forgot to test/add tool tag.

ozok, the default Tool tag is actually not present after the conversion. I've tested all AAC again. LAME for example works. The tool tag is written by fdkaacenc/fhgaacenc/qaac. It's not a big deal but you can't tell which encoder made which file.

The "--tag too:" was just an option to change/remove it as required just in case, I'd rather see it in the file normally.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ChronoSphere on 04 February, 2014, 01:12:32 PM
Ah another point: It is currently possible to exclude *.cue from adding files. Would it be possible to replace that by a "filter" text box, so that one could for example filter out .mp3s to not encode them to a lossless format. You would just enter formats you don't want to have, i.e. "*.mp3, *.tak, *.cue"

Any reason why TAC is restricted to one instance? I wanted to test with a small amount of files while another instance is "stuck" adding ~15k files to encode and it wouldn't let me start another one.

edit: interesting. Embedding artwork into TAK(APEv2) definitely works, but it's doing it differently than foobar does. At least with foobar files, I can use Icaros (FFMPEG based) to show artwork in explorer, while TAC's output doesn't show any artwork in explorer. It also seem to have an additional "cover" tag when inspected with mp3tag...
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 04 February, 2014, 02:22:19 PM
@Vivadavid
1 - I don't know how AC3 dialog norm. works. I only added it because one user requested it.
2 - Norm. under "Effects" is done by SoX. I don't know if that can be mixed AC3's option.
3 - This changes audio volume wrt given value. Above 100% will increase, below 100% will decrease it. This one is also done with SoX.
I didn't combine these effects to see how they work. But using one norm. option alone should work.

@eahm I can make TTagger to write tool tag whenever it is possible. I can add an option to choose to write it.

@ChronoSphere I'll take look at folder depth-server thing. I don't have a chance to test it myself, so I might need your help there. It shouldn't be difficult to add file type filter, I guess it'll make to the next release.
TAC is restricted to one instance because of "shell extension". If you enable it, it should provide a link in right click menu. For this to work there must be a single instance AFAIK.

I noticed the extra tag too. I tried to find why the library writes it but I can't find the reason. Interestingly, it indicates to the full path of the image file.

Post by: ChronoSphere on 04 February, 2014, 03:08:26 PM
About the folder depth, I think it's better to let user trim left/right side folder-wise, instead of making a workaround solely for a server configuration. Btw, you could test it even without an actual server if you share a folder on your computer, then go to \\computername\sharedfolder\ in windows explorer. I think you will have to enable file sharing for that though.

About covers, I just tested ape, wavpack, tak and mpc - ape & wavpack covers show up in explorer, tak & mpc don't. All four of them use APEv2, but maybe for tak & mpc you need some sort of a workaround? Maybe you could ask the tagging lib author that? It's like some part is missing to make them show up, or maybe there are different ways to embed a cover into tak & mpc?

edit: bug report: when encoding to wavpack in hybrid mode, TAC doesn't rename the .wvc files!

Good update! Time to test something again. Thanks ozok.

IMO "Browse" is better than "Select" for the output folder. Annoying question, why aren't all the codecs (in each section [Losselss]/[Lossy]) ordered alphabetically (ex: ac3 > dts > m4a or/and ape > m4a etc.)?
Title: TAudioConverter

ozok, qaac DOES NOT wite the default Tool tag when nothing is selected in the "Custom options" box. Now it write "QAAC" so something changed because it didn't write anything last time.

It should be something like "qaac 2.19, CoreAudioToolbox 7.9.8.3, Apple Lossless Encoder".

Actually they aren't ordered according to any rule. I think it comes from TX264 -TAC is forked from it- and FAAC was the first and default audio encoder there, so it stayed the same with TAC. I remember first adding QAAC and FhgAAC support, even before Lame. I just added encoders name as I added support for more encoders. I kept codec order while I was building the new UI.

Yes TAC now writes tool names itself but I think I didn't get it completely right. I've noticed for some cases when tool tag is written to a qaac encoded file, tags can't be read by some programs (Mp3Tag for example). This happens to same files everytime so I'm guessing there is a specific reason but I couldn't find it yet.

It doesn't really matter. It is just an annoyance because it's a millisecond easier to find the codecs

Mp3tag does recognize the modified/changed Tool tag if made from the CLI (qaac.exe). I see the default one when converted normally then for example "MPEG-4 AAC (test test)" in the one converted with the modified tool tag.

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.

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!!

Post by: Vivadavid on 21 March, 2014, 06:42:28 AM
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!
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 21 March, 2014, 08:13:44 AM
@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 (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.

Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 22 March, 2014, 08:49:24 AM
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?
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: ozok on 01 April, 2014, 07:41:59 PM
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.

Post by: Vivadavid on 04 April, 2014, 10:50:31 AM
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!

@Vivadavid
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.

Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: Vivadavid on 05 April, 2014, 07:35:09 AM
Hello, Ozok,

I've had another look at Tau and I'd like to make two more comments:

1. There are certain dialogue boxes where you can select a value by using a selector, but you're not allowed to type a number. One example would be "Settings for MP3", where I'd like to type 5 where it says "VBR" and I can't. The selector lets me set the value to 4.97 or 5.02, but not 5.

2. I've just noticed there's a replay gain feature in settings, so I've turned it on to test it, as I had problems with MP3Gain in the past. Once switched on, I've dragged an MP3 file with "method" set to "copy", as I don't want to re-encode the track: I just want to make it sound louder. Unless I'm wrong, making a track louder doesn't imply re-enconding it. The thing is that my new track doesn't sound louder (I've checked the tags and there's nothing new written there). I've tried again, but this time setting "method" to "encode" and, although a message was displayed saying that an error had occurred, I did get a new MP3 file that is louder. Is there a way to use replaygain with "method" set to "copy"?

3. Also, there's a time line, as well as pause and stop buttons, but I don't know what they are for. If right-click on a track, and I click on play, the default player is open, so nothing happens in Tau.

4. Finally, when I use the trimming feature because I just want to have a few seconds of a track, it still says "00:00:00/00:00:00" to the right of the time line, instead of showing the initial time and the final time.

Thank you for your time!

Post by: ozok on 05 April, 2014, 07:46:19 AM
1. You can click to slider and use arrow keys to set smaller steps.
2. Copy audio is not intended for audio only sources. It must be used only when extracting audio from a video file. Otherwise, as you experienced, audio will be simply copied to output.
3. Player can only play audio files (aac, m4a, mp3, wav, flac, ape, ac3, wavpack, optimfrog, speex, opus, tta, ogg, mp1-2, aiff are supported). If you selected a video file then it cannot play it. I could have implemented video playback by using MPlayer as backend but it will make program huge. You can also double click files to play.
4. I'm aware that player doesn't respect trimming. I'll add it in a future release.
Title: TAudioConverter
Post by: Vivadavid on 05 April, 2014, 08:04:33 AM
Thanks, Ozok,

1. I've used the arrow keys and they work better for me. It'd be great, though, if users could also type a value.
2. Now I understand why it doesn't work. Would you consider allowing users to make advantage of the replay gain feature with audio files not embedded in videos? That'd be awesome.
3. I've tried with an MP3 file, both by double clicking or by right-clicking and then clicking on play, and it still opens my default audio player. I don't know how to make Tau play the audio file internally.
4. That's great: thanks!

msvcp120.dll and msvcr120.dll are 64bit in qaac folder (64bit portable). Perhaps that's what's causing the trouble.

All three mirrors, same issue.

IIRC nu774 said these 64bit DLLs are only for the 64bit version of refalac, qaac is only 32bit. Same reason the 64bit folder doesn't contain libgcc_s_sjlj-1.dll and qaac64.exe

These two packages create confusion only, in same cases the 32bit is even faster than its 64bit version (don't remember precisely which encoder/version). My suggestion is to keep only the 32bit TAC.

Request:
Support for embedding .png and .webp aswell?
I tried with "folder.png" in same folder, TAC did not embed it into Opus. Ogg container should also be compitable with webp from what i've heard. And since jellybean 4.1, Android has been supporting webp natively, so could really see the benefit of using that format over jpeg.

Edit: Wow. Tac "forgot" to write the tags when i had png in same folder instead of jpeg. When i had folder.jpg it wrote tags. So.. If tac encounters a unsupported "folder.whatever", it fails writing tags at all?
Tried twice, same thing happened. Log: http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/62178098/file.html (http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/62178098/file.html)
Edit2: This is using TTagger

o-l-a-v problem was caused by TTagger. It opened cover file to get it's dimensions but didn't close it later. This updated ttagger.exe should fix your problem TTagger.7z (http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/73537092/file.html)

Just noticed that, when using the built in scaling function in Windows 8.1, the UI layout in TAC gets pretty messed up

Google Image link (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-d-2HSwe_lSU/U1sT7yLEEmI/AAAAAAAABvY/J5xyUi_ugWY/w1591-h895-no/TAC+14.04.26.PNG)

The next/ previous codec selectors get misplaced like this when scaling is set to normal aswell.

Hi ozok. I continue to love using this converter, even over foobar in some instances.

Question, where is this "merge" files function on the latest release?  I can't find it.  Is it similar to foobar2000 when it allows you to output converted files into one file?

Thanks again.

I feel sheepish for not having looked there! 

Ran a test album, and I probably forgot to select certain things....no tags and no artwork in the merge mode.  Foobar at least gives you a starting point to re-tag.  Maybe this doesn't work in merge mode when you have a various artist album.  I have it set from "copy tags from source".

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.

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 (https://www.fosshub.com/TAudioConverter.html)

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.
