Where does Grip store tunes by default?


I know, I know... Tried Grip. Not bad, except I can't seem to find where the hell it put the tracks after they were ripped.

Thanks in advance!

I did that. All I see is cdrom device, file format, executable, command line, cgi path (for id3 lookup) and thats it. nothing under the proxy/misc tabs. The only thing I see resembling a file dir is the encoder exe /usr/bin/oggenc

I also skimmed the entire Grip Help doc.

Nope. I have been systematically going through / file by file (if they could have any relation anyway) and I don't see them. Seems like it would use my home dir so stuff would be easily found.

First thing I did when I fired it up was look for a place in config to specify the dir so this wouldn't be a problem.

I'm sure I am just overlooking something here, but I don't know what.

The path should be in the tab 'MP3' under 'MP3 File Format'.

i'm using version 2.96, but hopefully this will help you out. open up grip and click the config tab. click on the rip tab and look in the text box with the label "Rip file format". that's where i specified a target directory for the ripped files. then click the mp3 tab and look in the text box labeled "MP3 file format". that's where i specified the target directory for encoded mp3/ogg files. the default locations should be in your home directory, but i don't remember what that is since i haven't used the defaults for grip in about a couple of years. anyway, can you post what it says on both those lines? that way if you still have trouble deciphering it, someone can help you decipher it for you.

grip is nice, but the one thing i don't like about it is the reliance on the cddb database for naming tracks. I use ripperX for my cd ripping jobs since it allows me to manually name tracks. I can still use the cddb database for naming tracks if want to though.

Ok, I got it. The version I am using doesn't have any kind of an MP3 tab, it has M3U which I never heard of. I just assumed this was the place and changed it to somewhere I am familiar with. It was just so cryptic having those variables in there, it didn't look like a pathname to me. It's changed now, but it was something /mp3/%A-%d.m3u. m3u is new on me...

I actually found a post similar to mine at the Grip userforum, but the dude after asking the question responded to it hisself with "never mind, I figured it out."

I hate that. Thanks megaspaz.

Oh, and megaspaz: just thought you might like to know Grip v3.0.5 allows manual track naming.

interesting that it uses .m3u since that's just a playlist file extension...

edit: nevermind, there's a playlist generator in options that's where the .m3u is at.

anyway, downloaded and installed grip 3.0.7 and while it does indeed let you manually name each track, it seems to forget the case of what i've typed in.

if type in for Artist Name, "South Park", and the Track Title, "Kyle's Mom Is A B*tch", i would expect the filename to be "South Park - Kyle's Mom Is A B*tch.mp3" and not "south park - kyle's mom is a b*tch.mp3". am i missing something here?

I dont know how that could be the wrong directory. I drag & dropped the tunes from that folder...

I also have the 'case problem. Wierd. I am going to try some other ripping apps and see if I can find a better one.
