I'm looking for some ideas...\n\nTwice a week, I post new episodes of a podcast.\n\nThis involves:\n1. Changing iTunes to suitable rip settings, which is basically very low\nquality.\n2. Ripping the CD with the audio (multiple tracks) to a single iTunes\ntrack.\n3. Setting metadata for the track, such as title and date.\n4. Uploading it to my web server.\n5. Posting from Wordpress.\n6. Changing iTunes back to settings that don't brutalize music CDs.\n\nThis takes so much time that I fall behind, and then it takes even more\ntime.\n\nI am pretty sure I can automate the upload and the Wordpress posting,\nbut I'm at a loss to automate the CD extraction, the merge, and setting\nall the metadata. Can anyone offer any ideas? Is this possible with\niTunes? I was looking through Automator, but didn't see a "extract audio\nfrom CD" option.
