I’m ripping very much CDs as .WAV and sorting out the best masters into my collection folder which has the following structure:
As DJ I want to convert a part of the collection to MP3 or AAC later - but keep the same directory structure on the destination (root) folder (e.g. my laptop or USB stick because I don’t need my external harddisc and there is only 1 TB on the laptop which is too small for all required .WAV’s).
The part of the collection are changed files since a specific timestamp and have a special marker in the GROUPING ID3 tag that I need this track for DJING. However, there is no problem for me to create a list with the absolute path + file names which I want to convert by using Tag & Rename.
But I don’t want to move the .WAV file away from the collection to a watch folder and then manually move all back and sort-in again.
Is there something supported in WL 8.5 with the new function?
Maybe it is possible to run the converter as a command line tool and give a parameter (.xml ?) with the information about source and destination path + file?
I know there might be other tools around - but the tool have to copy the ID3 tag information from the WAV to the converted MP3/AAC file - and I only know WL8 which is supporting this.

Like a SYNC to backup a hard disc. Sync source folder with destination folder including sub folders which means copy new + update modified files and delete not existing from destination - with the difference that WAV’s will be convert to MP3’s/AAC (or whatever).
Thanks a lot!
