Linux Cue Sheet Tool for Multiple FLAC Files
Hi,

I have slimserver setup on a machine which also runs abcde as a ripping and encoding service. It all works fine, but I'd also like to use abcde to create the cue files.

Does anybody know a linux tool that can do that for me? I've looked at mkcue and cuegen, but they both seem geared up to single flac files per album.

At the moment, I'm using EAC on a separate windows machine to create the files after the CD has been ripped/encoded. It works, but it would be great to get abcde to do the work for me!!

OK, many thanks. I've not heard of this tool before, so I'll give it a go.
