I would like to have a batch script for converting wav and flac files to mp3 using preset lame switches, copy flac tags and put the resulting files in a folder within the original folder. I'd also like to be able to just drag a folder or file on top of that script to execute it.

Is that something that can be done? If it is, could someone at least make me an outline of such script?

I was going to say that little script wouldn't preserve tags.

Only thing I can think of really quick is use metaflac to read tags, parse and store them in variables, then use flac to decode and pipe to lame called with those tags defined on it's command line.

I could write that if I cared enough, but I rarely use mp3 and if I do I generally batch convert using soundconverter or soundkonverter.
