Hi there smile.gif,
I am a happy EAC user for many time and I have always used it with either FLAC or Monkey.
But things are changing now.
It's time to start using TAK instead of the other 2 encoders.
But even if I have been using these tools for quite some time, I am afraid that I don't know what settings should I setup in EAC when it comes to 'compression options'.
Should I set it up for:
- use external program for compression
- user defined encoder
- path= C:\...\TAK\takc.exe
- additional command line options= -e -p4 %s %d (just like with foobar?)
These are the settings that I've been using and I don't really know if they're right or wrong but apparently they seem to be working more or less properly.
And I said more or less because this way EAC doesn't tag my TAKs with APEv2 tags.
Are there any threads containing specific instructions on how to setup EAC for outputting TAK files?
TIA and sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.
Cheers

Hi guys,

I have a noob question: is there any way to get wapet to stop popping open status windows? I'm using Synthetic Soul's wapet, with HisInfernalMajesty's external compressor command line above. I also have "tools/do not open external compressor window" checked in EAC.

Unfortunately, wapet (or takc?) keeps popping open status windows to show me how far it has compressed the current file. This makes the computer unusable, as I have to swat away those @#$%^ status windows every couple of seconds. mad.gif

Is there a command line switch that I'm missing? This is the only thing that's stopping from ripping all my discs into TAK instead of FLAC.

Thanks in advance!
Tim

Not withstanding the issue Synthetic Soul raised about illegal characters, I have a solution to this problem...

Compression program in EAC:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe

Add'l command line param's:
"C:\Program Files\TAK\tak.vbs" %s "%n" "%t" "%a" "%g" "%y" "%m"

tak.vbs looks like:
CODE
WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run """c:\Program Files\TAK\tak.bat"" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(0)&""""&" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(1)&""""&" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(2)&""""&" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(3)&""""&" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(4)&""""&" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(5)&""""&" "&""""&WScript.Arguments(6)&"""",0,true

tak.bat looks like:
CODE
"C:\Program Files\Exact Audio Copy\wapet.exe" "%~dpn1.tak" -t "Track=%~2%" -t "Title=%~3" -t "Artist=%~4" -t "Album=%~5" -t "Year=%~6" -t "Genre=%~7" "C:\Program Files\TAK\takc.exe" -e -p2 %1

The status of the "Do not open external compressor window" setting does not matter.
