    Thumbs up new EAC out, v1!

    NEW EAC OUT!

    http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/en/inde...rces/download/

    Hello everybody,

    finally here is the new version 1.0 beta 1 which has some mighty new
    features. I took some time (mainly the complete change to unicode
    character set), but alls well that ends well…
    Here comes a list of the new features:
    + Unicode support for all fields (but not CD-Text)
    + New database engine for storing CD information (old databases can be
    imported)
    + Metadata plugin support, for now there is a freedb plugin included.
    This will be released as open source freeware soon.
    + Cover support, can be drag’n'dropped from a file, a web page oder can
    be retrieved via a metadata plugin (support included in the freedb
    plugin). Cover can be written into tags or in the extraction directory
    + AccurateRip v2 support
    + Better Windows 7 support (like progress display in taskbar icon,
    storage of user data in the correct folders, etc.)
    + Free selection of first track track number (including option to
    continue numbering from the last inserted CD)
    + Option to always write the log file in english language
    + Option for writing a checksum over the extraction log data to the log file
    + Average extraction speed is listed in the log file
    + Possibility to write only V2 tags (and no V1 tags)
    + Free choice of replacement characters for filenames
    + Range copy selects now the first selected consecutive range of tracks
    as default
    + New folder browser dialog (system dialog for folders)
    + Added two placeholders for filename creation for track length (min and
    sec)
    + Test for (command line) compression options (and display of a sample
    command line)
    + Menu for removing unwanted/doubled spaces from “cd title”, “artist” &
    “track titles”
    And some features are now removed:
    - Removed Windows 2000 support (and any older OSs)
    - Removed ID3V1 tag editor
    - Removed compression offset
    Hope you like it!
    The next version is also planned, it will mainly contain an additional
    demo for a commercial metadata provider (if anybody would like to have
    access)

    Best regards,

    Andre
    Thanks Andre. I have found EAC really brilliant. If I use this new release
    do I have to redo settings?

    Best wishes,

    Tony Brohn
    Yes, in fact all settings are reset to default (basically there is a new
    set of settings - older versions will still find their settings)
    This was necessary due to the Unicode changes, most settings are now
    completely Unicode.

    Best regards,

    Andre
    awesome... my question is, if you export your config, install the new version, and restore the old config in the new version, would that work?

    That would circumvent the measure I tried to take )

    So, of course exporting a profile or whatever will not change the
    settings. You might try to export the settings using RegEdit, change the
    file to the correct path and import that modified file.
    Most options will probably do (as registry will perform conversions) -
    but only for real strings. If EAC stored some options in binary form, it
    might end bad.

    I do NOT recommend doing it this way or any other hacked way. Open two
    EACs and put the old options into the new EAC...

    i guess he means keep the old install, then install the new one to a different location, and then open both and copy the options in.

    oh well, small price to pay for what looks like a worthy update.

    Imagine, if we could get Replaygain scanning of output files, the tool would be complete for me.

    I have used EAC with the REACT2 "wrapper" which automates fetching cover art and also album gain scanning. Installation is rather tedious but then it just works. Given the delicate nature of the cooperation between EAC and REACT2 the chances that it will work with EAC v1 are probably nil.

    What is the sense about a double-beep after every song that got compressed by an external encoder?
    Transporter (modded) -> RG142 -> Avantgarde Acoustic based 500VA monoblocks -> Sommer SPK240 -> self-made speakers

    Yea, I guess i will have to stick with Foobar for the scanning part.

    i installed the new version and did some quick EAC config. the art thing works GREAT, i didn't see that i did much of anything to install that piece, very easy and intuitive to use, and it gives you LOTS of pics/sizes to choose from. you can also pick in the options whether to embed the art or place it in the folder, or both. AWESOME.

    i haven't ripped anything yet, so i don't know what it does regarding RG, but i use winamp for that anyway, and to assign AA tags.

    it has flac built in, calls it user defined encoder, and this is the default FLAC command line:

    Code:
    -6 -V -T "ARTIST=%a" -T "TITLE=%t" -T "ALBUM=%g" -T "DATE=%y" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%n" -T "GENRE=%m" -T "COMMENT=%e" %j--picture="%i"%j %s -o %d
    the only part i'm unsure of is what the last part is for, the picture part. i only want art in the folder, do i need to adjust this then?

    here's the default cmd line for mp3:

    Code:
    %l-V 5%l%h-V 2%h --vbr-new %s %d
    not really sure what those do either or why he uses these ones.

    The %j--picture="%i"%j embeds the cover art into the music file, FLAC in my case, but could be MP3. Actually pretty useful since it saves a separate step being performed in MP3Tag.

    EAC version 0.99 worked good under Ubuntu with the help of Wine.
    EAC 1.0beta 1:
    What works
    The program appears to install properly.
    What does not
    The program will not run. Soon after attempting to run the software, a window titled "Unhandled exception" appears saying "at 01537EB0 -> ACCESS_VIOLATION" with no other option than to click an "OK" button.

    I am going back to EAC version 0.99 because I do not want to work with Windows ......
