Thread: Multi encode not creating Artist folders

  1. #1

    Multi encode not creating Artist folders

    Newbie here. Just found the multi encode option Up until now, I have been encoding flac lossless and then bulk converting all into Apple lossless. That was until I found the Multi encode option. Just tried it and noticed its not creating the artist folder like it was when I was just doing flac.

    Is this the expected behavior?

    You control this with the naming item for each encoder, copy the naming value from the cd ripper main page to the multi-encoder.

    OK - I did as you said and it works now.
    It doesn't seem very intuitive though.
    To be honest - I'm not sure where this value (below naming string) originally came from but I would half expect it to populate in the multi-encode by default so a user doesn't need to copy and paste it (just my 2 cents though)

    but with multiencode, one may want a different dynamic naming string for each CODEC being used as the songs may be stored differently (for different purposes), e.g., FLAC lossless files on home server and mp3 files created for use in a car system, on a portable device (which requires a specific (different) directory structure, etc.
