Adding wav files from SD card recorder

Post by cootcraig »

I've started recording LP's with a standalone recorder. I transfer 2 wav files (one for each side)
to my Linux box. How can I add the wav files to an mpd folder so the artist/album name and other
data like album art are available? I have assembled a file server to hold music files I plan
to access with mpd.

Convert them to FLAC. If you rip your vinyl, try to rip them at 24bit / 96kHz.

Waveform Audio File Format (WAVE, or more commonly known as WAV due to its filename extension)(rarely, Audio for Windows) is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It is an application of the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) bitstream format method for storing data in "chunks", and thus is also close to the 8SVX and the AIFF format used on Amiga and Macintosh computers, respectively. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. The usual bitstream encoding is the linear pulse-code modulation (LPCM) format.

RIFF WAVE is a container format. Check format tag: it may contain raw PCM or even MPEG-1 Layer III (aka MP3) data. It does NOT contain meta data like artist or album name.

Correct answer is: use FLAC :D - Ran is right.
