EAC scripts?
« on: July 30, 2012, 11:25:06 AM »
I have an IKEA dresser that broke apart during a recent move that is full of 1000's of audio CD's in sleeves.  Four large drawers of discs have been residing on my bedroom floor since the end of March.  My plan is to start ripping what I don't already have in FLAC or SHN on data discs or cannot be re-downloaded from the LMA.  I imagine might be as high as 80%.

my plan is to automate this as best as possible.  Has anyone run AutoFLAC or REACT?

Also if can install and configure several optical drives into one machine can I run multiple instances of EAC at once or do they conflict?

I thought EAC allowed you to Rip straight to FLAC???  Its been many years since I've played with it...

I will return your DATs/Tapes/MDs.  I'll also provide Master FLAC files via DropBox.  PM me for details.

It does.  What I want to do is set up a box with 3 or 4 optical drives and run scripts so I can change 3 or 4 discs at a time instead of just one single disc.

Right on...  Sorry I messed up your thread...

I did this under linux using cdparanoia and two plextor SCSI drives.  As I recall, it would prompt for a new disc every 30 seconds.  That was quick enough to keep you pretty busy shuffling discs.  That really isn't a lot of downtime.  That box... That box ripped! :P

The encoding to flac was done asynchronously - there is no reason to do that at the time of the rip.  On a very fast CPU, that would be less of a concern.  Discs were tagged via a local copy of the cddb database, so no network connection was required.  Unknown discs had to be tagged manually.  It'd be easy to script a vid cam capture of the disc materials to maintain momentum.

All that on a very low power machine - I think it was a 300 mhz celeron.

Unfortunately I tore that sweet box apart to donate to my folks as a music server.  They never use it :(
