I tried to LameXP but not working, why it is not compatible?

Edit: these are two files.
I have identified at leas three problems:
  1. LameXP checks the version string, using the "-help" option. This is working fine with the old "tmkk" version, but the new "Case" version just errors out. No version string is printed!
  2. LameXP checks that all required DLL's are present. The old "tmkk" version required libsndfile-1.dll, but the new "Case" version does not. It still needs the other ones though (enc_fhgaac.dll, nsutil.dll and libmp4v2.dll).
  3. LameXP requires at least version "20120806" of fhgaacenc, but the version from Foobar Encoder Pack reports "20120624" and additionally "20151024". LameXP only looks at the first one, which is too old.

Fix is underway...

Thank you! When you can prove it.

Edit: I only see the file fhgaacenc.exe, the other file of Case is not necessary?

You copy the required DLL's from the Winamp installation directory (or extract them from the Winamp installer via 7-Zip), as described in the included INSTRUCTIONS.txt file

Installing the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) may be required too...

Go to http://www.virustotal.com and upload the application or the executable there. If it's just one or a few antiviruses (out of 20+) complaining there's a high chance there's no actual virus.

hi LoRd_MuldeR

I would suggest adding an option to choose between AAC encoders, and the auto choice act like the how lamexp do now except in low bit-rate/Quality or if the HE-AAC v2 is selected lamexp will prefer nero because it better than others in that

QAAC never encode in HE-AAC automatically, and support HE-AAC v1 only (did't support HE-AAC v2)

edit1: in tvbr mode in QAAC I can't encode in HE-AAC, and after I test more I see that QAAC in very low bit-rate (8 kbps) will encode HE-AAC v2 if I choose HE-AAC v1 or HE-AAC v2 ! and in the low (64 kbps) will encode in HE-AAC v1 if I choose HE-AAC v1 or HE-AAC v2 !

edit2: with 48000 Hz even in 8 kbps QAAC will encode HE-AAC v1 if either HE-AAC v1 or HE-AAC v2 chosen

edit3: 8 kbps in QAAC made the output in 32 kbps in 44100 Hz stereo, and in another test I see that in 40 kbps QAAC will encode HE-AAC v1 and in 32 kbps will encode HE-AAC v2 if either HE-AAC v1 or HE-AAC v2 chosen, if I didn't choose HE-AAC v1 nor HE-AAC v2 QAAC will encode in LC

Hi LoRd_MuldeR,

First, awesome program, thank you.
I found out that when I convert flac files into mp3, the <track> and <Album Artist> tag info from the flac files are not properly copied to the mp3 tags.
The <track> tag automatically gets 1, 2 3, etc. The <Album Artist> tag stays empty.
I checked the Meta Data and Advanced Options tabs but can't find anything about those.

Cheers

As explained various times before, this is not a simple matter of "copying" the meta tags

It requires to detect the meta tags from the original input file, store them in an internal data structure, and finally re-embed them into the re-encoded file.

And all this needs to work with 17 different decoders and 11 different encoders (187 combinations), which all store different tags in different ways.

Therefore, the internal "meta data" model was designed as the "the lowest common denominator" of what the various different audio formats (encoder/decoders) support.

At this time, the "Album Artist" is not maintained as a separate field in the internal "meta data" model, sorry!

About the "track number" issue: I think you probably have "Position" set to "Generate from list position" on the "Meta Data" tab. If so, then the result is as expected.

Indeed it was. Doh, I feel stupid. Simply didn't know that "Position" meant track #. Changed it to "Unspecified (copy from source file)" and it works like a charm now :-)

Problem with Ogg Vorbis tags

I'm having an issue with Vorbis Comment tags on Ogg files encoded with LameXP. My source files are FLAC files and have all been properly tagged. However, after encoding with LameXP, all the tags are duplicated with 2 backslashes (\\) except for the year.

For example, if the artist tag in the FLAC file is "Disturbed", the encoded Ogg file is tagged as "Disturbed\\Disturbed." The comment contains "Encoded with LameXP\\", followed by the original comment from the source FLAC file.

This bug does not occur if the Normalization Filter is enabled.

Hello, Yonah.

If the selected encoder is capable of reading the input file format directly (and if no filters are enabled!), then LameXP takes a "shortcut" and just invokes the encoder directly on the input file – instead of going the usual "decoder → filters → encoder" route with intermediate WAV files. Now my guess is that, when OggEnc2 (i.e. the Ogg/Vorbis encoder) is reading your input FLAC file directly, then it keeps the meta tags found in the original FLAC and also appends the tags specified explicitly by LameXP – rather than "replacing" redundant tags. Not sure whether this is a bug or a feature. Enabling the "normalization" filter probably fixes this, because the "shortcut" can no longer be used when filters are enabled

[EDIT]

Okay, I think it's a feature and we need to use the --discard-comments command-line switch of OggEnc2 to get the desired result. A new version is underway...

Thanks, Lord_Mulder! The command-line switch is just what I needed. Before I moved overseas I ripped my entire CD collection to FLAC. Since I use Vorbis exclusively on my phone this tag issue was problematic for me. No more manual tag editing after I encode an album.
