    Beginner naming help

    Hey,
    Is it possible to make the dynamic naming output a folder with the same name in the same place with just the format next to it?
    For example from "Artist - Album Title (Year)" to "Artist - Album Title (Year) [MP3 320]" in the same folder, for example 'C:\Users\John\Music'
    Thanks

      For me that just puts the transcoded files in the same folder as the original FLAC files, is it possible for it to crerate a new folder with the same name and the new format?

        You can configure an individual path for each encoder by setting up the dynamic naming for each encoder. This works for CD ripping as well as for (batch) converting.

        But aside of that: I wouldn't recommend to store different file formats in subdirectories within the album directory. From my experience it is better to have different root directories for each file format. Music players often ask for a root directory to index all files recursive and index all file formats they can handle. With your structure the player will index the same title multiple times - one entry for each file format. If you have a root directory for each file format that wont happen.

        Just my 2 cents.
