Rip your Audio CD to Opus using my latest opusenc.exe build with Exact Audio Copy

Rip your Audio CD to Opus using my latest opusenc.exe build with Exact Audio Copy

Hi everyone, Today, I’d like to show you the steps to rip your Audio CD to Opus using Exact Audio Copy and my latest opusenc.exe build. Why use my opusenc.exe build? First, it includes the newly added –tracknumber argument which enables you to easily pass the track number to the opus file. Second, it is not needed to specify the output filename, as it will use the same input name. For Exact Audio Copy, this means that you only need…

Opus GUI V1.3 released and collaborating in the opus-tool GitHub repository

Hi everyone, Today, I’ve released Opus GUI: This build brings an option to enable or disable multithreading and also allows you to encode files to the same input folder by leaving the output textbox blank. This is in part, thanks to a few commits I’ve performed today and currently awaiting a Pull Request approval to merge these commits into the opus-tools repo. Yesterday, I got my first Pull Request approved which added an argument called “–tracknumber”. This allows you to…

Opus GUI v1.2 released!

Opus GUI v1.2 released!

Hi everyone, Late yesterday, I released v1.2 of Opus GUI: This new release brings several improvements. v1.1 was also released but was immediately superseded by v1.2 due to an uncorrected bitrate bug. First, the GUI will now display the opusenc.exe version being used. This is useful because sometimes, new opusenc versions are released which I personally compile and try to see if there’s new improvements to the audio files. The other improvement is that the software will try to detect…

FLAC GUI v1.2 Released!

FLAC GUI v1.2 Released!

Hi everyone, Today, I have released v1.2 of FLAC GUI: This version adds Multi-Threaded encoding, meaning that each of your CPU threads will encode a file, significantly speeding up the encoding process. For example, if you have a folder with lots of music files and you have an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU which has 16 threads, you’ll be encoding 16 music files at a time! This assuming that the folder contains 16 or more files. If the folder contains…

FLAC GUI v1.1 released!

Hi everyone, Today, I’ve released FLAC GUI v1.1: This new version includes 2 options that will further improve the compression of the FLAC files. These options are: Exhaustive model search (-e flag in the flac.exe command line) Exhaustively search LP coeff quantization (-p flag in the flac.exe command line) By enabling these options in the GUI, you’ll save a few kb per FLAC files but the encoding time will be a little slower. If you don’t mind waiting a few…

Ripping my Audio CD music collection to Opus with EAC

Ripping my Audio CD music collection to Opus with EAC

Hi everyone, Today, I did a quick experiment using a relatively new Open Source Lossy audio format called Opus, by the Xiph.Org foundation. I downloaded the opus-tools package from the official Opus Website and tried a tool called “opusenc.exe”. Wow! I was really impressed by the sound quality! I like to listen to my audio CD music collection, and I personally have them ripped to the FLAC audio format, which is a Lossless Audio Codec, but being Lossless means it…
