This thread details the steps I am going through to create a selection of music for my car. I will be using many new features of dBpoweramp R16 to select just the audio I want in the car, rather than my whole collection. dBpoweramp will be setup to write the files to a location on the HDD, and later as new music is added to my main collection, Batch Converter will convert just the new files, saving time. Finally the audio tracks are processed, such as volume normalization so that all the audio is played at the same volume, also an adaptive normalization is used, this increases the volume of quiet parts of a track so it matches the loud parts, ideal in a noisy environment such as in the car.
Without further a-do, lets begin, run Batch Converter, create a new profile named 'For Car' and select the root folder of your music, in my case drive M:
Next 'Filter' is selected, and the Artist tab is selected. 'Exclude All' is chosen to exclude all artists by default, and I work through the list only choosing artists I want in the car:
Depending on how your audio is organized the same could be achieved perhaps by choosing folders on the HDD, however some of the artists I am selecting have tracks hidden on compilations, so choosing by metadata is the most efficient way.
Convert is clicked and Music Converter displays, because we created a profile in Batch Converter, any selections made now in Music Converter will be remembered for this profile. For audio format, the best format for my car is AAC.
'Output To' location is set by choosing 'Set Dynamic Naming':
Base location is set to T:Music-For-Car
Dynamic Naming to: [IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][title]
Tracks will be placed in an Artist folder, no notion of albums are used, the car browses by folders and selecting an artist gives access to a whole artists music.
Back on the Music Converter page, DSP effects are used to process the audio, the following effects:
Multi-CPU Force: CPU 1 only selected (this allows the computer to be used normally whilst converting as only one file is processed at a time)
ID Tag Processing: Deletions >> Single Tag '[Album Art]' (the car does not display art, save space removing it)
Audio CD: Hidden Track Silence Removal, default settings (removes in track periods of silence)
Trim Silence: default settings (removes silence at the beginning or end of a track)
Volume Normalize: Adaptive Ebu-r128, default settings (normalizes volume, even quiet parts of a track are adjusted to match louder parts, ideal for in car).
Conditional Encoding: Action 'Skip Encoding', General 'Destination Exists'
The conditional encoding effect enables Batch Converter to be loaded at a later date and only new tracks (which match filter) to be encoded, saving time.
