NAME

       track2track - convert audio tracks

SYNOPSIS

       track2track [OPTIONS] <track 1> [track 2] ...

DESCRIPTION

       track2track converts audio tracks from one format to another.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              show a list of options and exit

       -I, --interactive
              edit metadata and encoding options in interactive mode prior to converting tracks

       -V, --verbose=VERBOSITY
              The level of output to display. Choose between 'normal', 'quiet' and 'debug'.

CONVERSION OPTIONS

       -t, --type=TYPE
              The  audio  format  to  convert  the given tracks to. For a list of available audio
              formats, try: -t help.

       -q, --quality=QUALITY
              The desired quality of the converted tracks. For a list of available quality  modes
              for a given format, try: -q help

       -d, --dir=DIRECTORY
              The  target  directory  for  the  converted  tracks.  If none is given, the current
              working directory is used. If the target directory  does  not  exist,  it  will  be
              created automatically. This option is not compatible with -o

       --format=STRING
              The  format  string  to  use  for  new filenames. Template fields are replaced with
              metadata values when new tracks are created. All other text is left as-is. If  this
              option is omitted, a default format string is used.

       -o, --output=FILENAME
              An  explicit  output  filename  for  the  converted track. With this option, only a
              single input track is allowed. It overrides the -d option and  the  default  output
              filename.

       -j, --joint=PROCESSES
              The  maximum  number  of tracks to convert at one time. If one has multiple CPUs or
              CPU cores, allowing track2track(1) to use all of them  simultaneously  can  greatly
              increase encoding speed.

FORMAT OPTIONS

       --sample-rate=RATE
              convert all output files to the given sample rate, in Hz

       --channels=CHANNELS
              convert all output files to the given number of channels

       --bits-per-sample=BITS
              convert all output files to the given number of bits-per-sample

CD LOOKUP OPTIONS

       -M, --metadata-lookup
              perform metadata lookup for converted tracks

       --musicbrainz-server=HOSTNAME
              the MusicBrainz server name to query for metadata

       --musicbrainz-port=PORT
              the MusicBrainz port to query for metadata

       --no-musicbrainz
              don't query MusicBrainz for metadata

       --freedb-server=HOSTNAME
              the FreeDB server name to query for metadata

       --freedb-port=PORT
              the FreeDB port to query for metadata

       --no-freedb
              don't query FreeDB for metadata

       -D, --default
              When  multiple  metadata choices are available, select the first one automatically.
              This option has no effect when used with -I

METADATA OPTIONS

       --replay-gain
              add ReplayGain metadata to newly created tracks

       --no-replay-gain
              do not add ReplayGain metadata to newly created tracks

EXAMPLES

       Convert all the WAVE files in the  current  working  directory  to  MP3s  at  the  default
       quality:

              track2track -t mp3 *.wav

       Convert  all  of  the  FLAC  files  in  sourcedir  to  Ogg  Vorbis files and place them in
       targetdir:

              track2track -t ogg -d targetdir sourcedir/*.flac

       Convert all of the WAVE files in sourcedir to FLAC files, 2 at a time and at  the  highest
       possible compression (quality 8):

              track2track -t flac -j 2 -q 8 sourcedir/*.wav
