In Grip

  1. Start Grip
  2. Go to Config -> Encode -> Encoder
  3. Choose flac as encoder
  4. Add this at the beginning of Encoder command-line:
-V -o %m -T Artist="%A" -T Title="%n" -T Album="%d" -T Date="%y" -T Tracknumber="%t" -T Genre="%G" %w

You might like to try using %a in place of %A, for the '-T Artist' option, in order to cope better with multi-artist CDs.

For a higher compression (slower), add -8 to the line. For faster compression, add -0

Track-title suggestion by Neil Pilgrim.
