Bug Description

Binary package hint: soundconverter

It sometimes happens to me to convert audio CDs using sound-juicer.
Simple converter in its interface but yet powerful in the output customization habilities through its connection to the "GNOME audio profile editor"

The interface simpleness is the reason why sound-converter interests me.
Unluckily it does not use the same profile editor to choose the output format.
Having previously made some custom profiles when ripping CDs I was expecting to use them here.
Moreover I must admit that I didn't found my happiness in the existing output parameters

Don't you think this could be interesting to have something harmonized between GNOME audio converters ?

I'm totally aware of the problem.
I think manually editing the profiles is neither a simple or an elegant solution.
I also think the majority of soundconverter users prefer it the way it is. Gnome audio profiles are more ripping/recording oriented.

A simple and elegant solution would be to use gnome audio profiles, and make a powerful graphical editor for them.
This is planned for soudconverter2, but I don't have the time to make it happen right now.

My first goal when trying sound-converter was to re-encode audio files.
Some of them are podcasts from radios and in this case I consider predefined preferences of sound-converter not really appropriated in the task.

Initially I wrote this wish report mentioning also that an interface to create/modify GNOME audio profile really lacks. gstreamer pilpelines are very difficult to understand and handle.
But I considered that it was not the place for it.
So let me say now that I completely agree with you on this point.

I still think that soundconverter is a nice soft and I'll wait v2 with impatience.
