I've been reading through posts on the LAME --nogap option. Some say the MP3 format doesn't allow gapless files. Some people say they've gotten it to work.

I'm gathering that it >can< work, but won't totally eliminate the gap.

I tried configuring EAC with the command: "--alt-preset standard --nogap %s %d" but didn't have any success. EncSpot has a field that indicates a --nogap encoded MP3, but none of the MP3s I encoded indicated that --nogap had been applied.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get EAC to execute --nogap on a series of tracks?

Thanks,

Shel

For starters, try turning off dithering as suggested by Mike Giacomelli.

Okay... as I told Mike, that was already disabled by default.

Also, increase buffer size and increase playback thread priority.

Thread priority was already set at 'max'. I wasn't sure what to set the buffer size to. So I just guessed at these sizes, and none had any affect: 50K, 100K 200K 400K, 800K, 1000K, 2000K, 5000K.

A P166 should be able to handle foobar2000's mp3 decoder at a reasonable speed.

In fact, I was able to get my >120MHz< Libby to play gapless MP3s by making a couple tweaks. I checked the ASPI drivers with Adaptec's Win98 utility, and found a mismatch between the two configured files. Between correcting that, and updating the sound drivers for the (noisy... Layla in my sights) Yamaha OPL3-SAx chip, the little hiccup I was getting between files disappeared.

I did the same to the 166MHz Libretto hoping I could get the equalizer working without MP3s stuttering. The time between the stutters was increased, but I've still not been able to tweak anything on that Lib to get equalizaion working right. That's the only DSP component I'd >really< like to have working.
