NEW EAC OUT!
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
+ 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
+ New folder browser dialog (system dialog for folders)
+ Added two placeholders for filename creation for track length (min and

And some features are now removed:
- Removed Windows 2000 support (and any older OSs)

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
AndreThanks Andre. I have found EAC really brilliant. If I use this new release
do I have to redo settings?
Tony Brohnawesome... my question is, if you export your config, install the new version, and restore the old config in the new version, would that work?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

new EAC out, v1!

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...

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.

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

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:
-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

here's the default cmd line for mp3:
%l-V 5%l%h-V 2%h --vbr-new %s %d

EAC version 0.99 worked good under Ubuntu with the help of Wine.
EAC 1.0beta 1:
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 ......Squeezebox: 2x Touch + 1x 3 Classic + 2x Radio
