# 
# A sample configuration file to convert music cds to 
#       Ogg Vorbis using abcde version 2.7.2
# 
#     http://andrews-corner.org/linux/index.html
# -------------------------------------------------- #

# Encode tracks immediately after reading. Saves disk space, gives
# better reading of 'scratchy' disks and better troubleshooting of
# encoding process but slows the operation of abcde quite a bit:
LOWDISK=n

# Specify the method to use to retrieve the track information,
# the alternative is to specify 'musicbrainz':
#CDDBMETHOD=cddb
CDDBMETHOD=musicbrainz
GLYRC=glyrc

# Make a local cache of cddb entries and then volunteer to use 
# these entries when and if they match the cd:
CDDBCOPYLOCAL="y"
CDDBLOCALDIR="$HOME/.cddb"
CDDBLOCALRECURSIVE="y"
CDDBUSELOCAL="y"

# Specify the encoder to use for Ogg Vorbis. In this case
# vorbize is the other choice.
OGGENCODERSYNTAX=oggenc

# Specify the path to the selected encoder. In most cases the encoder
# should be in your $PATH as I illustrate below, otherwise you will 
# need to specify the full path. For example: /usr/bin/oggenc
OGGENC=oggenc

# Specify your required encoding options here. Multiple options can
# be selected as '-q 6 --another-option' etc.
# The '-q 6' setting gives VBR encoding between 192-224 kbits/s.
OGGENCOPTS='-q 6'  

# Specify the encoder to use for MP3. In this case 'lame':
MP3ENCODERSYNTAX=lame 

# Specify the path to the selected encoder. In most cases the encoder
# should be in your $PATH as I illustrate below, otherwise you will 
# need to specify the full path. For example: /usr/bin/lame
LAME=lame

# Specify your required encoding options here. Multiple options can
# be selected as '--preset standard --another-option' etc.
# The '-V 2' option gives VBR encoding between 170-210 kbits/s.
LAMEOPTS='-V 2' 

# Specify the encoder to use for FLAC. In this case
# flac is the only choice.
FLACENCODERSYNTAX=flac

# Specify the path to the selected encoder. In most cases the encoder
# should be in your $PATH as I illustrate below, otherwise you will 
# need to specify the full path. For example: /usr/bin/flac
FLAC=flac

# Specify your required encoding options here. Multiple options can
# be selected as '--best --another-option' etc.
# Overall bitrate is about 880 kbs/s with level 8.
FLACOPTS='-s -e -V -8' 

# CUE reader syntax for the CUE reader program to use.
# abcde supports 2 CUE modes: 'mkcue' and 'abcde.mkcue' so you can set the
# MKCUE variable accordingly. The 'abcde.mkcue' uses an internal
# implementation, without the need of an external program.
CUEREADERSYNTAX=default
MKCUE=mkcue

# Outputs
OUTPUTTYPE="ogg,mp3,flac"

# The cd ripping program to use. There are a few choices here: cdda2wav,
# dagrab, cddafs (Mac OS X only) and flac. New to abcde 2.7 is 'libcdio'.
CDROMREADERSYNTAX=cdparanoia            
                                     
# Give the location of the ripping program and pass any extra options,
# if using libcdio set 'CD_PARANOIA=cd-paranoia'.
CDPARANOIA=cdparanoia  
CDPARANOIAOPTS="--never-skip=40"

# Give the location of the CD identification program:       
CDDISCID=cd-discid            
                               
# Give the base location here for the encoded music files.
