Noob Problem Configuring EAC to Rip tp FLAC & MP3

I have configured EAC to use MAREO to Rip CD to FLAC and MP3 in the same session. I used the default MAREO config file that comes with MAREO zip.

Ultimately I would like to define unique destination directories for each file type such as Z:\Music\FLAC Music and Z:\Music\MP3 Music but for starters I just used defaults in config file. Figured once I got it running with defaults I can tweak or I can always just copy files from wherever they end up to my final ideal destination directories.

Below I have included the MAREO command line output window file, the MAREO log file and the MAREO config file I used.

Can anyone help me with what I believe will turn out to be a trivial user config issue. i.e what does Error Code 1 mean? What changes do I need to make to my config to make this work? Thanks in advance.

In EAC I used this as the destination directory: J:\EAC Music\ (it already exists as a directory)

I used this as the filename parm in EAC: %D (%Y) %C\%N - %T - %B

and I used this as the Various Artist parm in EAC: VA (%Y) %C\%N - %A - %T

The MAREO session hangs as follows. This is the output from the command line window MAREO launched after EAC ripped song to .wav file. (appears to be stuck on create directory step):

First thing to change is that you must have a semicolon before all the lines of dashes.  MAREO interprets every uncommented line as a command line to run, even if it is just a line of dashes.  In your log where it says

Quote
*** EXECUTING ***

---------------------------------

ERROR: --------------------------------- returned the error code -1


this means it is actually running the command ---------------------------------.  Of course this will fail.  There are two lines you have that need a semicolon added.  One is just above ; Flac 'RECOMMENDED' and the other is the line above ; MP3 LAME "ARCHIVE" (320 kbps CBR):

Secondly the flac line is failing.  I wonder whether you don't have flac.exe in the location it is looking for it? (which is C:\Downloads\EAC\eac095pb5\mareo\)  If you don't have flac.exe there then try copying it into there.

This doesn't answer why it is then hanging, but if you try fixing these two issues and running it again then we can see where we go from there.

Thanks for the fast response. That did the trick!

I wondered about the -- lines not being commented out in the sample config file that came with MAREO but thought it was ok since that was how it was presented in the .zip file. As you also noted, it turned out I did not have the FLAC.exe or LAME.exe in MAREO directory. Had them in EAC directory. With those two changes made I have been able to rip to FLAC and MP3 in one go! Kewl!

One last ? if you don't mind; ultimately I would lioke to end up with the FLAC files files and MP3 files going to separate directories as:

Z:\Music\FLAC Music
Z:\Music\MP3 Music

I know this is possibe based on the MAREO tutorial, just not clear to me where to put these statements in the config file strings. Can you advise what to change in the config file to end up with the files in the named directories?

Thanks for your help!

AFAIK, there are no uncomment lines on the INI ... anyway

the action lines are made of:

Extension_Of_The_Encoded_File Text_Between_Finall_Encoded_Name_And_Extension Override_Path_Name Command_To_Run_With_Parameters

Override_Path_Name: here you can set a different path where MAREO would put the encoded file of the specific encoder. It must be a fully qualified Path Name. Also, instead of spaces, use the _. It is ignored for the first encoder Action Line, cause EAC and CDex like to rename the files themselves.

Override_Path_Name is what you need to use you would need to put:

mp3 NONE "Z:\Music\MP3_Music" "@ownpath@\lame.exe" --alt-preset insane --ta "@artist@" --tl "@cdname@" --tt "@songname@" --tn "@track@" --ty "@year@" --tg "@genre@" --tc "EAC+LAME -alt-pre-insane" "@source@" "@dest@"

Ok. I am a hair away from having this working 100%.

I changed my directory structure somewhat such that the goal is to deposit FLAC files in:

J:\Music\FLAC

and MP3 files in:

J:\Music\MP3

I want MAREO to build sub directories as J:/Music/Flac/Artist/Album/Track Num, Track name and J:/Music/MP3/Artist/Album/Track Num, Track Name

I have this working fine for FLAC files but for MP3 conversion the files end up in the MP3 directory as J:\Music\MP3\06 - Wild Wild Life. The Artist and CD name seem to be built into the track name. I would like to have the naming separte the files out to Artist/Album sub directories.

Can you tell by my MAREO config file what I am doing wron and what must be changed? Thanks! So close ...

Here is my EAC External Compression command line:

EAC %o %s %d "%a" "%g" "%t" "%n" "%y" "%m"

Here is my EAC Naming Convention command line:

%D\ %C\%N - %T
