The new version of Monkey's Audio (v4.11) is out, and I've been putting it through it's paces with foobar2000. The results? Not pretty.

In the transcodes I've done (FLAC to APE), there's always 1 to 3 files that won't encode correctly, and I end up getting that "Files converted with major problems, object not found" message. Transcoding the same exact files, though via command line (i.e via Multi-frontend) gives me the total opposite results. No problems at all. Even weirder, when I transcoded all the files of one album (literally) one at a time, the process went smoothly. And with another, trying to do the same brought back the same problems again.

The albums get two thumbs up via Accuraterip, and an md5 check shows no problems, so they're not the cause. What is?


1) Something in Monkey's Audio needs to be fixed?

2) foobar2000 has a problem with...

a) The MA plugin?

b) Lack of pipe support causing problems with conversions?


I vaguely remember having to do a transcode with TAK awhile back using temp wav and having problems. Switching back to pipe encoding made the problem go away. Could the problem be the result of foobar2000 not being that great with temp wav encoding?

Actually, I kill all non-essential crap that runs in the background (via a specialized program) that takes care of all of that before I do each encode, so, again, that's not an issue with me.

I have, though, run additional tests, and have discovered that, apparently, foobar2000 needs more space than traditional command line encoding to do it's job. Found this out when, after playing a hunch, I deleted some stuff, did another encode with MA 4.11, and had every single file go from FLAC to APE with no mistakes. That would explain why, before, encoding via Multi-frontend worked every single time and didn't with fb2k until space increased.

Of course, pipe encoding, I think, would totally get around this type of stuff. But Matt can't be bothered to have it in there, even though the devs over at Rarewares have already figured out how to do it. Managed to find their MA version somewhere and have done some test encodes with it. It works perfectly. Too bad it's not compatible with fb2k.
