I would like support support for keeping the folder structure when
converting/recoding (like XRecode does):
I would like to convert a folder tree with flac files (correct folder
structure, files already contain correct tags) to another folder tree of MP3
I can drag a folder tree to the input but freac only allows to output to a
single flat folder.
I would like that freac builds the same tree structure in the outputfolder as
there is in the input folder.
Input folder: MyFlacFiles
Output folder: MyMP3Files
MyFlacFiles\John Mayer\Continuum\Belief.flac will be converted to
This is very handy when converting music collections to a different format.
I keep two collections:
1) A quality collection (flac and MP3 320kbps) for archiving and playing on my
mediaplayer and computers.
2) An MP3 collection (192kbps) for playing on MP3 player and phones and other
devices that do not support flac.
I maintain the quality collection and want an easy way to keep the MP3
XRecode allows me to do this but I would rather use Freac instead but it is
missing this essential feature.
(I know that files can be output in the original input folder but that is not
what I want).
This is already supported by fre:ac. Please try the following output filename
More info about the <directory> placeholder can be found in the "How to...?"
section of the user manual.
When I use <directory-1>\<filename> then <directory-1> gets translated to
However <directory>\<filename> appears to do the trick.
Oh yes, my mistake. It should have been <directory+1>.
The +1 just strips one path element from the beginning, so you won't get the
MyFlacFiles part in your output directory tree.
