I've been reading through posts on the LAME --nogap option. Some say the MP3 format doesn't allow gapless files. Some people say they've gotten it to work.

I'm gathering that it >can< work, but won't totally eliminate the gap.

I tried configuring EAC with the command: "--alt-preset standard --nogap %s %d" but didn't have any success. EncSpot has a field that indicates a --nogap encoded MP3, but none of the MP3s I encoded indicated that --nogap had been applied.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get EAC to execute --nogap on a series of tracks?

Thanks,

Shel

But using EncSpot to analyze the MP3s I encoded with EAC, it's showing that the LAME option --nogap wasn't configured for some reason.

When you encode a set of WAVs in a single Lame invocation with --nogap, all but the last get the informational bit set. (The last file in the group doesn't get the bit, because nothing special happened at the end of it.) With EAC, there's no way to encode more than one WAV per invocation of Lame, so --nogap never does anything, and the informational bit is never set.
