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?

In the case of using a command-line encoder which doesn't support piped input, it requires the full size of a PCM WAV file for each converted file, until each file finishes converting. Multiply this by the number of encoding threads you have running, and this can be quite a bit of space.

If you don't like this, convince someone to implement piped input for Monkey's Audio encoder, or somehow start foobar2000 with the %temp% environment variable set to somewhere other than your primary drive, or use a different encoder, like FLAC or WavPack.
