One of the few things I keep Winbloze around for is mp3s. If you have bloze machine, look at dbpoweramp. It has a lot of great features. Or you might be able to run it with Wine. I haven't tried that.

dBpowerAMP is one of those programs that is so simple and useful you can't live without, but somehow nobody seems to have created a Linux alternative to it.

I can report that it does work fine in WINE though, I use it very often on my desktop here. The interface looks a little crazy under WINE, and the initial file selection is very slow for some reason, but the actual conversion is plenty fast, and I don't recall ever having it crash on me while it was converting.

Thanks for letting us know it runs on Wine. That is good news.

I agree with you, it would be great if somebody would port the whole suite. I don't like any of the Linux music players (not meaning to start a thread on this topic) but at least the dbpoweramp conversions and codecs and all that great stuff would make life more simpler in Linux-land.

You can use lame and keep all your filenames and tags

Study "man lame" and this sample script,
Code:
for file in resmp/*.mp3; do lame -V 2 "$file" "resmp/$file"; done
I'm not good at bash scripting, but if you post your question asking for help with a bash script to accomplish your needs, you'll get lots of help.
