How do YOU guys do it?

I like to ask this question. It seems like with every format there is an easy way to do things. What's the easy way to go about lossless compression?

I like FLAC because rumor has it, it's got replaygain support. How would I set up EAC to use the exe and get the right tags on there and everything?

I also like Monkey's. I actually got it to run from EAC, but I can't seem to get tagging right. I think EAC may be adding ID3 tags, but I would prefer APEv2 tags.

This is how I do it.


C:\Win32\Flac\flac.exe

T "Album=%g" -T "Date=%y" -T "Genre=%m"
flac>fb2k>kernel streaming>audiophile 2496>magni>dt990 pro

Woo hoo! Thanks.

EDIT: What's Track number? (-T "Track=%n" doesn't work)

EDIT2: Nevermind. It's Tracknumber.

Hey, you can do more than that!

-T "Artist=%a" -T "Title=%t" -T "Album=%g" -T "Date=%y" -T "Tracknumber=%n" -T "Genre=%m" %s

So, now how do I replaygain them?

Just add --replay-gain to your command line

However, this'll only do track gain - if you want album gains then just put your flacs into metaflac frontend [see this thread] and do --add-replay-gain making sure to tick 'all input files on one command line'

Alternatively you can put them in foobar, select album, right-click > replaygain > scan selection as album.

It would be better to able to do this fom EAC though....

Do you use -V to verify the encode?  Or do you consider it a waste of time?  I currently use it just to be sure ... I haven't tried it with EAC, though.

FYI the command line switches are listed here or of course via the help switches.

Anyone know of any others that don't work via EAC this way?

Why does the picture show a bit rate of 32 kbps? Given FLAC is lossless encoding I'm sure it uses far more data than that.

It doesn't use that bitrate. FLAC is VBR and uses as much bits as it needs, with varying file size depending on the encoding switches. Furthermore, if you set it to 32kbps, it wouldn't be lossless anymore
