I've noticed this since I installed a newer version of EAC--after it copies a track, the external FLAC compressor starts and extraction pauses. It can be quite awhile when ripping classical cds with long tracks. Is this normal, or is there a setting somewhere that I missed? It's increasing my rip time by quite a bit.

On extraction, start external compressors queued in the background

(Default: disabled, Recommended: disabled)

With this setting enabled, EAC starts an external compressor as soon as the first track was extracted and therefore the extraction and compressing processes are running simultaneously. Of course, this could lead to a time saving, but also can lead to some problems: it is more likely that errors during extraction/compressing occur on older PCs. So in general, you should leave this option disabled unless you have a dual/multi-core CPU.
