WV to Flac and Then Split

Post by IanRTaylorUK »

I wasn't expecting this to work!

Had a WV file with associated CUE file that wasn't "splitting" into the separate tracks. But WV played OK in MMW5. So...

1). Converted from WV to FLAC using MMW5
2). Edited CUE file to reference the new FLAC
3). Split file using CUE splitter and placed in my download folder (scanned continuosly)
4). All files appeared and seem to have correct Artist / Album / Date / Track / Title

A few quick edits of tags, lookup lyrics and ready to add to library. Great!

Sorry,
how do you made the point 2) ?:
Edited CUE file to reference the new FLAC
How can you split a flac file using a cue?
Thanks

Hi Lineare2,

The CUE file is a text file, so I would have used NOTEPAD or EditPlus (any text editor).

I use Medieval's CUE Splitter mostly, but FooBar is also useful.

To be fair, I feel more work has been done within MMW to better handle multi-track FLAC files. So you may want to take a look at that first.

Hope this helps.
