## Audacity Connection Follow the step’s listed on [this]( page: Go to “Audacity -> Edit -> Preferences -> Modules” and set the “mod-script-pipe” parameter to “Enabled”, restart Audacity and confirm that “mod-script-pipe” is set to “Enabled” by default.

## Example commands: `python3 -m vinyl2digital -discogs 1525832 -img front.jpg -output "C:\Users\marti\Documents\martinradio\uploads\testFolder"` This command: * Will get the metadata from the [Discogs release page with id=1525832]( * Will tag the output mp3 files with albumart from the location: `C:\Users\marti\Documents\martinradio\uploads\testFolder\front.jpg` * Will render each selection from the open Audacity program as an individual mp3 file in order from left to right, with tags for title, album name, artist, year, track number, and title. The files will be rendered to `C:\Users\marti\Documents\martinradio\uploads\testFolder`
