Omni Encoder is a graphical, multi-format front-end and EAC plug-in.

Supported Formats:
Lame MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Musepack, FLAC, WavPack, Monkey's Audio, Nero and iTunes AAC, Apple Lossless

Features:
  • Graphical interface (no editing config files)
  • Optional EAC integration (like MAREO, REACT or WACK et al.)
  • Automated album art downloading from Amazon.com
  • Album or track ReplayGain analysis, adjustment and/or tagging
  • Tag conversion between formats
  • Directory layout creation based on tag info
  • Extendible, modular design (only install the features you want)
  • Open source license (GPLv2)
A lot of improvements have been made since the early betas last summer - please check it out and give me feedback!

Download it here (requires the .NET 2.0 runtime)

08/30/07: Updated to version 1.4.2.

Hey, Omni Encoder is a pretty nice program. I just have a few feature suggestions...

* An "Add Folder" command that brings up a directory tree.
* Options for the user to specify where the files for the various encoders are found. (I keep single audio codec folders that all my rippers/frontends reference so I can quickly plop a new encoder version into the appropriate directory w/o having to copy it into every individual program's folder... but Omni doesn't seem to allow for this.)
* An advanced "command line override" for those who want to tweak around with the command lines directly instead of relying on the GUI settings... also, this gives better forward compatibility, so that if Omni development halts and the encoders change their commands or syntax, Omni won't then become completely useless.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully considering. happy.gif

Also, I'm now noticing that it doesn't seem to read track number tags if they're formatted for multiple disc albums (such as "2-03" for disc 2 track 3). The FLAC comment field doesn't seem to be copied over either. And could you please clarify that "Delete" in the Edit menu actually means Clear or Remove... I was worried it might physically delete my files.

* You can just drag/drop the folder and it will add everything underneath it in the tree.
* I might make it possible instead to replace the .exes with shortcuts. While it is usually safe to do so, sometimes different versions might cause weird behaviour, so I really like the idea of having "official" versions of things. Will ponder.
* No to the command-line override. If there is an option you need, and it isn't supported, AND you can justify why you want it, then I might add it. Otherwise no. The LAME GUI, for example, follows the LAME dev GUI recommendations, and they don't want this option added. If you want to break your files with weird-ass options, you're on your own (source code is available smile.gif).
* Yeah, its set to ignore track numbers that aren't numbers. And only the fields you see already are currently written. I'll be adding more flexible tagging options in the future.
* Changing "delete" to "remove from list" sounds like a good idea.
