EAC Final Beeps - Meanings and Settings Related to
I need to figure out something concerning the beeps when EAC finishes a rip.
When I have the setting: EAC Options - Tools - On extraction, start external compressor queued in the background, (with even a numer 1 set) ENABLED, it seems that it finishes with ONE beep, followed by a TWO short beeps.
When I have this disabled, I only hear ONE beep in the final.

Because of some WAV files left behind in some rips, I have disabled that setting.

Is this behaviour related to this setting!? Or is it something new in EAC?
My version is EAC 1.3  2nd sep 2016.
I use CUETools DB Plugin.

If I recall correctly, one beep when the rip is done, two beeps when the external compressor is done. Undeleted wav files may be due to closing EAC before the external compressor is finished.

No, that wasn't the case. This machine has 8 cores, and they're speedy, so something was left behind in the middle of process (for instance, track 02 left a WAV).

So EAC stopped the secondary beep because now it waits fully the external compressor without being queued. I suppose.

Occasionally encoders have problems with file names or path lengths.
