Tried burning an audio CD from mp3 using IIRC mpg123 to play mp3 to wav and
then cdrecord from mp3s that had been ripped from CD using cdparanoia and
encoded with bladeenc but the resulting CD was very clickey (I'd probably
get an improvement if I was prepared to fiddle with sampling rates and so
I wonder are the hooks in place yet for the mp3 to wav task in XCD-Roast?
If not, might be worth writing them.
