I would like ripping and encoding WAV to MPC with the extern programm mpcenc.exe but there is a malfunction. The settings are here :

With this setup in Additional command-line options :

--quality 9 --xlevel --ape2 --artist "%a" --title "%t" --album "%g" --year "%y" --track "%n" --genre "%m" %s

I have this error message :

Even this only setting don't works :

--quality 9

How can I do ?

Edit: Ignore what I said before.

You would need to include %dest% in your command-line for mppenc.exe, i.e. before the double-ampersand (denoting a new command)—however, EAC maps %source% and %dest% to temporary file-names that it then renames afterwards, so this will probably not work. Perhaps you could work around this by pasting your file-naming syntax in place of %dest%. Also, you may want/need to enclose both %source% and %dest% within double-quotes in order to avoid the encoder choking on otherwise-ambiguous spaces in the command-line. Son of Edit: Seems I was wrong (probably EAC only does this in certain cases, whereas I misremembered that it applied all the time), so please see the below post by lvqcl.
