Default How to encode mpc under ripperX

Hi.

I've just configured ripperX, actually cdparanoia to work with ripperX, but only for encode mp3 files and I would like to configure them to make mpc files. How can I do it? And which encoder should I use? Version 1.14 or 1.15r?

Does anyone use RipperX? I see no mention of Musepack support, but I cannot test it myself.

Regarding mppenc, if you find --standard good enough, stay with 1.14. You're not likely to tell the difference between 1.15r and 1.14. If you don't mind slightly bigger files, go with 1.15r. At --insane and above, I cannot find any sample that sounds worse with 1.15r. It's more likely that some samples will benefit from 1.15r at such settings. What do you mostly listen to?

I do, because I don't like console
Under Windows I prefered Xtreme and BrainDead prestets...
So, if using mpcenc is impossible in ripperx, how can I use it in console? I think about encoding full albums, not single files and I can't imagine writing the same command for each file

Sorry, I've missed your post.

I don't know anything about RipperX, but you can use a simple shell script to encode all files in one directory. Simply save the following lines in a file called mpcenc.sh and set the executable bit:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

for file in *wav

do

mppenc --xtreme --xlevel "$file"

done

I tried, and I have a problem.
I used --braindead not --xtreme and in info about mpc files there is:
Code:
SV: 7.0, Profile: Unstable/Experimental

Encoder: --Alpha-- 1.15
And my next question: what should I add in mppenc.sh file to delete encoded .wav files?

That's not a problem, the profile in files encoded by mppenc 1.15r is 'Unstable/Experimental', files encoded by 1.14 have the profile's name.

Just use
Code:
#!/bin/sh 

for file in *wav 

do 

mppenc --xtreme --xlevel "$file" 

rm "$file"

done

Thank you very much but I forgot about something else...
I hope you are patient for lame users
Can I tag files using mppenc and mppenc.sh file? If it is possible, how can I do it?

Maybe here is something useful.
Abcde is a frontend command-line utility for ripping,encoding and tagging in one step. It also supports FreeDB. I made some small changes on abcde2.20pre to support MPC Encoding.
It only needs cdparanoia and mppenc installed. Maybe you want to make some changes in abcde.conf to fit your needs but it should work out of the box.

Download abcde with MPC-Support

I use this script. It will tag the mpc files, but only if your wav files are named like: /some/path/artist - album/tracknr - title

Code:
#!/bin/sh



mppenc_options="--braindead --xlevel --deleteinput"



echo "Current mppenc options: $mppenc_options"

echo -n "Okay to use these? [Y/n] "

read okay

[ -z "$okay" ] && okay=y



if [ "$okay" = "n" ]

then

	mppenc_options=""

	while [ -z "$mppenc_options" ]

	do

  echo -n "Enter new mppenc options ('h' for help): "

  read mppenc_options

  if [ "$mppenc_options" = "h" ]

  then

  	mppenc --longhelp

  	echo

  	mppenc_options=""

  fi

	done

elif [ ! "$okay" = "y" ]

then

	echo "Wrong answer. Bye!"

	exit 1

fi





dir=`pwd`

artalb=`basename "$dir"`

artist=`echo "$artalb" | sed -e "s/ - /t/" | cut -f 1`                                  

album=`echo "$artalb" | sed -e "s/ - /t/" | cut -f 2`



for file in *.wav

do                                            

	tracknr=`echo "$file" | sed -e "s/ - /t/" | cut -f 1`

	title=`echo "$file" | sed -e "s/ - /t/" | cut -f 2 | cut -d "." -f 1`



	nice mppenc $mppenc_options --artist "$artist" --album "$album" --title "$title" --track $tracknr "$file"

done



exit 0
edit: I changed the options so it will use braindead profile and delete the wav files (!).

Actually I downloaded some libraries, and I installed Grip I thought it's impossible if I use KDE but I was wrong
Anyway, thank you for help
