Totally agree with the other comments about the unfortunate lack of WavPack encoding.

Like a previous reviewer, I'm struck oddly---and negatively---by the fact that this software transcodes from WavPack, yet can't encode it. I also wonder why Speex support is omitted, given that all other audio formats under the Xiph.org umbrella are supported.

I've often looked for a more modern replacement for the venerable deadware Multi-Frontend, and this could be it, but only if and when it can encode WavPack, which long ago replaced FLAC as my lossless format of choice.

Decent program. Personally I prefer EAC+Lame: displays a CMD window that shows how the (VBR) encoding is being distributed over the various bitrates. If you're not interested in that kind of information LameXP works fine: with individual progress bars.

Oddly, LameXP decodes wavpack but wont encode to wavpack, which limits my interest of it. Otherwise the interface is intuitive and clean and works well.

Tried the previously mentioned BonkEnc: proprietary GUI interface that doesn't even recognize CTRL or SHIF T Click. And introduces yet another format ".Bonk" which afaict is completely unneeded with FLAC or Wavpack. BonkEnc doesn't even recognize wavpack files. Fail in my books.

Hotfix working on my rig. It is a nice little program, but I still prefer BonkEnc, which provides more detail and features. This app works, and it is free, but there is some solid competition out there and some do it better than this update. Still, I think with some more work, it may turn out to be a recommendable app.
