Modified MPC decoder

There's a modified mppdec binary by Case available at his site which allows you directly burn your musepack files to audio cds using EAC.
To be copied to EAC directory and it will work.

Any instructions on how to setup EAC to do direct burning from musepack files?

You just put it in the EAC dir and edit the .cue file before loading it into EAC. Replace all .wav
with .mpc. Note: 200 MHz+ is required for 8x burning.

This works great, i can burn mpc's at 48X directly to CD.

I have a question though! I would rather burn Album Gained or Radio Gained tracks to the CD depending on whether the album is from one artist or various artists respectivly.

Is there any provision made for this at all? I wouldn't even mind it hard coded if no switch can be given, then i could just swap teh mppdec.exe for the appropriate album type i want to burn.

Any thought or suggestions here, or am i just missing out something really obvious here??

Cheers,

Kristian

Making different versions with hardcoded replaygain modes is fastest for me to do, so here they are. Three different binaries in descriptive subdirs.

Thats excellent, i'll give them a try in the coming few days.

Just a thought, would it be possible to allow a switch that would modify a permanent program variable to use one of the three modes, the mppdec.exe would then revert to that mode until the variable was changed via the command line switch. Not sure if this is easy or unneccesarry though, just an idea.

Cue sheet contains the instructions on how to burn the CD, you don't have to worry about it if you haven't used it. You can just add the mpc files manually by selecting Layout \ Append Files As New Track (Index 1).

Nice thing, indeed. The only thing, which makes me headache, is, that when I try to start burning a CD with EAC I always get a blue screen. I use WinXP with SP1 installed. Configuration see above. The error-message is always as follows: "driver_less_or_equal_than..... " (can´t read the rest, as it disappers too fast. It appears on both of my burners, the CD- and DVD-burner. - Anyone a hint for solving this problem?
My used codecs and settings:
FLAC V1.1.2 -4 / APE V3.99 Update 4 -high / MPC V1.15v --q 5 / LAME V3.97b2 -V2 --vbr-new / OGG aoTuV V4.51 Lancer -q5

You could try different ASPI layer, like ASAPI or native Win32 interface.

Well, if you right click on "My computer" goto adavced (i think) there should be a tab along the lines of "startup and recovery" sorry i cant be more specific. In here though you will find a few tick boxes, one being reboot automatically. If you untick this you will see the blue screen till you physically restart.

Would be really nice to have as well a version with clipping prevention enabled by default (e.g only --prev and, preferably, no --gain).

EAC calls mppdec always with clipping prevention. I uploaded few hours ago revised package that uses album based clipping prevention with no gain version, if you for some reason prefer title based clipping prevention you better keep the old binary

Oh, it's even simpler. Thanks for the info, didn't know that.
I think, I'll find a use for both.

Hm, nice but......

if i want to burn a complete album, i cant add multiple files at once because eac ignores the order of the tracks.

For example:

I have a album with 10 tracks, all numbered from 01-10 an with trackname. its imposible to add all 10 tracks at once. eac mash the files to a difference order. so i have to add each single track manualy to eac. very bad for burning complete albums. 

any ideas?

If you drag and drop the files from your album folder directly into the CD Layout window in the desired order it's a little less time-consuming. It sure would be nice if a future version of EAC included a better cuesheet editor, though.
