For some of my favorite cds (Gladiator for example) I use Moneky's Audio as a compression format instead of MPC. I use EAC to ripp cd's to .wav and then use the MAC program to turn the .wavs into .ape. However, when i do this I must tagg all of the .ape files manually. Is there a way to auto tage .ape files (using something like freedb would be prefferd). This question is probably easily answered, but I haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks.

EAC can be setup to compress with MAC.exe automatically and also set it to put in auto id3 tags, just look under compression options (F11).

I was afraid I would loose my MPC command line configuration if I did that. Does EAC save them under each compression type?

You can set up Monkey's Audio to auto-tag. There are instructions in the help file, but they are confusiong.

Go under options, and then tagging.

I have EAC set up to output my wavs like this:

C:\CD-Rips\Artist - Album\Artist - Song Name.wav

ok, here's how it works, so get the song name into the tag, I put %2 into that area. To get the Album, I put in %%2. To get the Artist, I can either put %2 or %%1.

Basicly, the number of %s that there are tells MAC the general area to look in

%=the file name
%%=The directory
%%%=the directory before that
ect.

Then the number afterwards tells MAC exactly where to look, useing hyphens as guides.

1= the part before the first hyphen
2= the part after the first hyphen, but before the second (if one exists)
3=the part after the second hyphen, but before the third
ect.

Sorry this doesn't help with stuff you have already ripped, but it acctually seems to be quicker to re-rip and encode with the tags than to edit all the tags manually. Any questions, PM me.
