Set Debug=1 in the INI file under [Settings]. This will make the encoder window "stay" after it has done its work. Please report any errors you see.

I made the changes to Debug, but now the message at the bottom of EAC "1 Compression Task Left" does not go away when the external compression programs are finished, and I'm afraid to open the directory containing the files to look at it while EAC is running because I do not want it to error because the program gets minimized.

This all brings us back to the question I posted above:

Can you make changes to REACT so EAC and the compression programs can be minimized and run in the background while other programs can be worked on.

Uncheck the 'EAC options | Tools | Do not open external compressor window' box. I think it should be unchecked by default. The compression window is minimized by default, but you can have it normal by setting 'MinimizeCompressionWindow=0' under [Settings] in the INI file.

/EDIT: The REACT process is not that fragile. You can minimize and hide windows. The only critical part is that EAC must not be minimized when it is about to finish ripping an album, because it then won't write the EAC log file directly after the last wav track (or image), which is vital for REACT to function correctly.

I had these settings already on my EAC options.
For some reason, my F10 funtion does not work anymore. I do not believe I changed anything in my settings since it worked. Is there a different button I can push to begin the process or re-set something to get it going again? I'm not sure why this has happened. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have checked my compression settings and eac settings, and everything seems ok. My .INI file seem fine too. When I press F10 it appears EAC just refreshes or something. I see it blink quickly but nothing happens.

Anybody have a sample .ini for FLAC-MP3 tracks? I've been trying to build one for a couple of days with no success. Here's a copy of my latest attempt.

Wolfsong,

I'm not sure why your flac-tracks and ogg-tracks are not working.  But here is my working config of individual flac (w/ RG album and track tags) and ogg (RG album scaled and RG track tags) tracks.

It looks like you end up with track gain and I'd like album gain. Here's my latest config, I really just want to add to it and create the tracks from the same image I think.

1=>set out2=[$n] $~t
2=>if "$cdartist$"=="Various" set out2=[$n] $~t ($~a)
3=>@encdir@\acdir.exe --overwrite --output "@destdir1@\%out2%.mp3" --pipe "@encdir@\lame.exe -V0 --vbr-new --scale @scale@ --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ignore-tag-errors --ta $#a --tl $#T --tt $#t --tn $#n --ty $#r{DATE} --tg $#r{GENRE} --tc $qAG applied: @gain@$q - $#o" "@sourcecuesheet@"

Can you be specific when you say "now it's not working"? What is "it"? Are the files not created? Do you get an error?

For some reason, my F10 funtion does not work anymore.  I do not believe I changed anything in my settings since it worked.

What is the album and artist name for the CD?

It may sound like a strange question, but VCSkier discovered that if the CD Title had a colon in it F10 would not work. I confirmed the issue and discover that a forward slash had the same effect.

Let us know your CD Title and CD Artist values in EAC to confirm.

Please see my quoted original post information above. Ny "all in one" rip to WavPack and MP3 in seperate directories (again, see my .INI above) functionality by pressing F10, which worked the first day I used it, no longer works. My .INI even seems to still be correct and show that F10 is the hotkey, but nothing happens when I press it...other than a brief blink of the program. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to have uninstall and reinstall the program. Thanks.

@ocluke (and everyone else): 'Save image + cuesheet' (F10 in REACT) may sometimes only make a blink in EAC, and does not bring up the save dialog. This is an EAC bug, which happens when Artist or Album contains any of the following characters: /\|":<>
Replace these letters with something else, and press F10 twice.

@cpalcott: You must change:
- rename .tmp to .flac.tmp, in line 1, 2, 10, 11, but keep it in line 8
- remove echo in line 7

[FLAC_MP3-tracks]

I tried a 3rd CD, carefully making sure that there were no characters in the title, and it worked. I have to put the other 2 CDs in to see what characters might have been in there. I'll let you know what happens. I'm in the middle of ripping the most recent CD.

The first CD was a Bjork mini CD called Roots Disk 1, which is from her Family Tree compilation. I know there was a ":" in the CD title. The 2nd CD was a Frank Cinatra CD, so I wouldn't think there would by special characters in the title. Again, I'll confirm and post.

Once again, you guys are the best.

Thanks, tycho. That did the trick. Couple of questions though.

1) It appears that the resulting mp3 is missing some tags, like"genre" for instance. "Artist", "Album", "Track", etc. are there but not "genre". Tags are complete, however, in the flac file just not the mp3 file.

2) In the tags comment lines of the mp3 it says it has applied AG: XXXX. Does this mean the track has been "normalized" to album gain or does it mean it would play at the tagged album gain level on a Replay Gain compatible player? I don't happen to have a Replay Gain compatible player, so is there anyway to nomalize (mp3gain to 89db maybe) the track for use with a portable as part of the REACT process?

Thanks again for this incredible program. What a time saver.

@Tycho

Is there a way to get Genre's with spaces to work? If I choose Easy Listening of New Age for instance it says it doesn't recognize it and uses Other instead.

Thanks.

I think there is something buggy about Genre in Tag.exe. You could try to add -T "GENRE=@genre@" and --tg "@genre@" to the flac.exe and lame.exe line correspondingly, and remove the -t "@genre@" from the Tag.exe line. @genre@ is the same for every track, so it should work.

Because --scale is used, the mp3 is "normalized" to 89dB, similary to what you get from applying mp3gain. So it is already as you want it.

Could I have an example please?

If it is a bug in Tag I could maybe try to resolve it.

What was the command being used?

I see ther is some code to convert a genre number to text for ID3v1, maybe that is causing an issue...

I think it's a bug in acdir.exe.
Are you using that?

try --tg $q@GENRE@$q in that line, solved my problems ("Death Metal" smile.gif ).

Both CDs did have a ":" in the album name, so I presume that was the issue. Now the extraction and compression process happens. However, there is a new issue. My result now is 2 directories: one with the MP3 file, and one with the .CUE file only, not the .WV file. What could be causing this to happen? I know when the process is complete I end with a command prompt that looks like the following:



I end up with that command prompt and the EAC window saying it is still compressing the file. When I press any key in the command prompt EAC says it is finished, however I only end up with the MP3 files and the .CUE file, not the .WV image.

ocluke, your windows doesn't show the result of the wavpack line. But if you use the standard WV_MP3 profile, I've had no problems with that so far.

synthetic soul, grombulk is right. The problem is acdir, or in fact EAC again: The bug is that EAC doesn't quote the genre in the REM GENRE line in the cue file, as it should.

With acdir, add genre tag like grombulk suggested.

There you have it. Could this be a setting in EAC or something? Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, I remember you saying to press F10 twice just a couple of posts ago. Why would this be the case? I have not heard that before.

Thanks.

I think it's a bug in acdir.exe.
Are you using that?

try --tg $q@GENRE@$q  in that line, solved my problems ("Death Metal"  smile.gif ).

synthetic soul, grombulk is right. The problem is acdir, or in fact EAC again: The bug is that EAC doesn't quote the genre in the REM GENRE line in the cue file, as it should.

OK, thanks both.

I thought 0.95 beta 3 did quoted values with spaces. I know beta 1 didn't. I noted this when they were released. Maybe users with problems are still using beta 1? Or maybe there are certain situations that EAC doesn't quote values with spaces... hmmm...

ocluke, as mentioned above, change
--ty $#r{DATE} --tg $#r{GENRE}
to
--ty $q@year@$q --tg $q@genre@$q

synthetic soul: Na, latest EAC quotes all REM items which can have spaces, EXCEPT genre. (I think unsure.gif )

/add: ocluke, You only need to press F10 twice when you have changed illegal chars to legal. Normally only once, of course.

Well, I'm not sure what the problem is. I consistenly am getting the same behavior with each rip. I put the CD in, wait for the songs to auto populate from freedb, press F10 and the process begins. When it is finished the command prompt stays open and it looks like the images below (top picture is from the top of the command line, and the second picture is from the bottom). What I end up with is the MP3 files from the CD in the appropriate directory, and a .CUE file in the archive directory (with no .WV file in the directory).





Then, if I close out the window and the eac window (which says "no errors occured) and press F10 again to go through the entire rip again, I end up with a .WV file in the correct directory, as well as MP3 files in the appropriate directory. The problem is that I have to rip twice and encode twice, every time. What I can't tell is if REACT is encoding the MP3s both times or not, but I think it is. The command prompt begins and ends as pictured below (and it stays open).





I'm not sure why this is happening, but I've tested it out with 5 CDs in a row and all follow the exact same process. Requiring me to rip twice before the process goes through smoothly. Any direction would be greatly appreciated, as this defeats the whole purpose of setting up a rip to encode into two seperate files and directories.

wavpack is complaining about a missing log file that it tries to embed in the image, and therefore quits.

For some reason, the 'Extraction Audio Data' dialog apparently didn't automatically get closed by REACT after extraction was done (which causes the log file to be saved by EAC). Only thing I can think of is that you minimized EAC, but that I've told not to do many times, so I guess not. (It's sad that EAC doesn't simply save the log file directly after the image or last track, instead of waiting until the dialog box is closed).

/add: I suppose the problem could be that the log file is saved a little too late, and is not ready when the wavpack command is issued. There is put in a small delay before running the compression commands, though (but maybe too small).

If you can't find a cure, remove the symptom. Delete: -w "EACLOG=@@eaclog@" from the wavpack line.

PS: As you may have understood, you must set Debug=0 in the INI again so that the compression window is automatically closed after its work, but it has nothing to do with the missing log file problem.

Please, try to figure out what may cause the problem yourself before asking. E.g this time there was a clear wavpack error message which also you could have seen.

Tycho,
I appreciate your help. I can see that my post bothered you for some reason, but I assure you I am trying. I've devoted countless hours to this program, trying to learn it and learn from people on this forum.

I understand that there is an error, which is why I posted it. This doesn't help me figure out the fix for it. I'm not only new to REACT, but I'm new to EAC and audio compression in general. I do try to figure it out myself, but unfortunately I'm at the mercy of the creators and those most knowledgeable about the bugs in REACT and EAC, since there isn't a REACT troubleshooting website or helpdesk that I can go to for answers.

You are right, I did not minimize anything. I press F10 and walk away, so as not to cause any problems myself (not being able to work on other programs or search the internet why the rip and compression is going on is, in my opinion, a major drawback to the REACT+EAC situation). I have noticed that the the command prompt is always minimized when it runs. I can maximize it manually, but it does not want to behave that way by itself for some reason.

Again, if anyone can point me in the right direction, or send me to another source so I can learn myself, I would greatly appreciate. I've probably read every post on here involving REACT.
