Music Converter

dBpoweramp Reference

Enable Profiles in Converter
when checked places a menu item [Create New Profile] into the 'Converting To' encoder selection menu within the Music Converter Menu, to create a profile based on the current encoder. This allows encoder settings and DSP effects to be saved when the same encoder is used with different settings commonly and switch between them.

The units can be customized, these values are used in various parts of the program.

When Converting

Pre-cache tracks is useful when reading from non-SSD drives as it reads tracks one at a time to internal memory before converting from that file.

Drop ReplayGain ID Tags removes ReplayGain ID Tags, ideally they should be recalculated whilst converting with the ReplayGain DSP effect.

Substitute Unicode spaces and remove leading or ending spaces in tags certain ID Tags might include various unicode spaces which are non-standard, this option changes these spaces to standard spaces.

Filename Restricted Characters sets which characters are not allowed by the file system (such as *) and it is replaced by a suitable alternative.

Temporary Folder sets the location where dBpoweramp will write temp files whilst converting, by default it is set to the system default temporary folder.

Music Converter Debug all aspects of Music Converter can be configured to write a debug log file, which is useful in finding issues when something is not working correctly. When enabled after a conversion or a crash a log file is automatically shown.
