When I import a new album I repeat the same routine:
Volume replay gain calculation => File type conversion => Album art search => Tag editing
I wanted to macro these actions but I could not find an appropriate way.
Thus I am posting this to suggest automatizing simple tasks within MB.
How many albums do you intend to rip?
You can do the Volume levelling from tools menu after highlighting all tracks.
Album Art will be the same for all tracks of an album, right mouse in album Art box in edit and click search.
Job done as common tags should populate via Gracenote. The longest part of the process wil, be the actual ripping from CD
