|TokyoElbow: for explanations of LAME presets, check the link I posted above - the link's name is "LAME presets". I even made the command in that post specifically for CDEX since that is what you use |
Im a lazy sod,thanks for that kick up the arse
I do sometimes suffer from wondering browser syndrome.
I checked that link but its moved, I know I know , if I went there when you posted it ...blah blah,,, But Im searching for it now. Update Still cant find it but Ill have a look on google.
|As to which is better, it's mainly a matter of what is important to you. If you're happy with CDEX and you like the results, then there's no problem. EAC's main advantage, IMO, is it can be set up for obsessive people (like me) who desire "perfect" copies of their music. Its methods of handling errors (scratches, etc) are more robust.|
Thats interesting because thats what I want, I am obsessive when it comes to music quality so maybe I will give that EAC a go. . I dont have a great PC (Pen II 300) so EAC does tend to take ions to encode, but I can wait just this once.:p
I have a pile of old cds with tonnes of scratches on, some I know work . I wonder if EAC would take long encoding them?
Thanks Disposable hero.
BTW Does your name have any ref. to the hip hop band "Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy"?
Update: I found a site with some Lame presets information here and I did what I thought was right.
I opened CDEX and chose external encoder and then navigated to the file ( lame_enc.dll ) , on cdex there is a parameter string box there so as a test I put this preset into it
|Code Sample |
|--alt-preset fast standard|
I got an error 'cant launch external encoder'
Am I doing this right?
Im sure Ive missed something out.
Maybe I should just head on over to the EAC ranch ............
