Replace various MP3s with FLAC versions

Post by nkormanik » Tue Jan 31, 2017 8:00 pm

I'd like some suggestions as to the best way to replace a number of mp3 file versions with full FLAC equivalents.

It seems better to have full un-lossy versions of audio files if possible. But once our mediamonkey library has a bunch of those files in lossy versions, how can one go about making an efficient switch?

Of course I could keep both versions -- mp3 and FLAC -- but for space reasons I'd prefer to delete the mp3 versions, if I have the FLAC ones.

Thanks,
Nicholas Kormanik

I Rip a new FLAC copy and then use http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... +duplicate to copy metadata from MP3 to FLAC copy and then have it deleted.

I Know I'm late to the party but I found setting up an MP3 and a flac node helped. I could just scroll through the albums checking for which I hadn't ripped yet.
