Questions / FLAC profiles silly questionning
« on: June 11, 2015, 11:43:37 AM »

I wanted to ask the reason for having an "archive" profile
I mean the only difference between the two profiles is that the "portable" profile has a compression level of 8
whereas the archive profile has a compression level of 0

given that a standard song takes about 20s to encode and a few minutes to rip, the encoding of the previous song is generally finished around 30~40% of the ripping of the next at compression level 8

given that FLAC is by essence lossless so whatever compression level only changes the size & the time to encode

given that even if there was no ripping but just encoding, encoding a whole library of 5000 songs would probably take  a single day (5000 x20s = about 28 Hours)

I don't see the reason for any other profile than maximum compression level, + the names are a bit misleading in my humble opinion.
For me, "archive" means something you're gonna store for a long time so a huge compression level would actually makes sense to me
also when talking about zip or rar files & the like those are often called "archived files"
and in winrar no compression is actually called : "Store"

Thoughts ?

2 things:
-1 I don't know why it's grayed out. try to restart the software or your whole computer ?
-2 I doubt if it failed once, it will work just by retrying
music bee seems to be pretty thorough when using secure ripping. (it retries on its own)

makes me wish there was some sort of immediate verification - validation from music bee  (like showing you the result with preset example tags )

still the same issue.   ???
in the meantime, I settled for
<Album Artist>)\<Album> - <Year(yyyy)>\<Disc-Track#>-<Title>

and this works even if it's not what I wanted to do

thanks for the simplification.
does the same thing however

even the filename is named : Disc-Track# - Title.flac

though the file has the correct tags (artist, track title & the like ...) just the filename & path are "wrong"

I'm very new to musicbee and trying to tailor it to my wants & needs
currently trying to replace cdex & get a specific folder structure
 I'm trying to put something that will put all soundtracks in a specific folder without artist folder
and all others in their folder with artist

 file naming when ripping each track as a separate file :
$If(<Genre>=Soundtrack,Soundtrack\<Album>" - "<Year(yyyy)>,<Album Artist>\<Album>" - "<Year(YYYY)>)\<Disc-Track#>"-"<Title>

however it doesn't work at all, it will create folder named : $If(<Genre>=Soundtrack,Soundtrack ... and so on
instead of say :
Soundtrack\Terminator - 1984\01-The Terminator Theme.FLAC

so I must be doing something wrong, I tried to read the naming conventions & all, but so far couldn't really figure it out.
