LameBrain 0.5.2 now available

Finally! Here are the goods:

  • Documentation is complete
  • Fixed problem with single-file encoder and dropped files that had hidden extensions
  • Fixed bug where .m3u playlists were not generated according to customized naming schemes
  • Dragging and dropping a folder on the batch encoder will optionally recurse through all subfolders as well
  • Batch encoder will only accept files with user-defined valid extentions. Default valid extensions are “mp3”, “wav”, and “aiff”

Get your freak on.

Update: Whoops! Uploaded the wrong file. Fixed now.

    When I try to rip a CD with LAME GUI settings “none, none. -r3mix, none, none, 2” it rips the first track in the queue fine but halts on the next track with an error “An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down.” I can relaunch and encode that track that failed, but the next in line always halts.

    Also, nit-pick: the app doesn’t respond to the wheel on my MS Wheelmouse Optical :)

    Does this happen with every CD? If not, which CD(s) are failing? Do these CDs rip fine with iTunes? Also, are you using a customized naming scheme?

    Apologies about the lack of wheel support. Annoys me too, but I don’t think RealBasic has any support for it.

    I have heard that —nspsytune —vbr-mtrh -V1 -mj -h -b96 —lowpass 19.5 —athtype 3 —ns-sfb21 2 -Z —scale 0.98 -X0 are good settings for LAME (according to www.r3mix.net) to get “CD-quality” MP3s. Does LameBrain support all of these features/commands? IE… am I getting the same quality that I would get if I were encoding on a PC?

    I believe those are the settings you get if you use the special —r3mix preset in LAME. There is a GUI setting to enable that preset, and one of the default profiles that comes with LameBrain uses thast setting. You could also put those command line options into the “Expert” setting and save them to a profile if you like.

    And yes, you would get the same quality as on a PC. LAME is identical from platform to platform, except for speed optimizations for specific processors.

    I been ripping CD for about two days. But last night I started getting the same message as above (Apr. 3:When I try to rip a CD with LAME GUI settings “none, none. -r3mix, none, none, 2” it rips the first track in the queue fine but halts on the next track with an error “An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down.” I can relaunch and encode that track that failed, but the next in line always halts.”

    Now it happens to every CD on the first Track.

    Unfortunately, I can’t be quite sure why this is happening, because I’ve never beem able to replicate it. Have you tried the basic stuff, like deleting the prefs file?

    Can I direct to the hydrogenaudio discussion board and this thread in particular: <a href=”http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?act=ST&f=15&t=203&”>http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?act=ST&f=15&t=203&</a>

    There’s a great deal of good information available there and some of the LAME developers hang out and answer questions.
