Pmonk, your output shows that you have to feed all the tracks to flac at the same time but as individual files, e.g.

flac -V -6 file1.wav file2.wav file3.wav

This method is ESSENTIAL if you want to sector align the tracks as you compress them. If you aren't trying to sector align them, then you can pass your wave files to flac.exe one at a time.

This is why the frontend is generally the way to go. Why not just stick with the frontend?
