I am using version 2.1.4. I have tried with both 'Default' and 'Extended' for Metadata Search and no tags are written.

[edit:]

I have tried with 'None' option and also no tags. I can't seem to find the Mode option.

[edit:]

I have found the Mode option, un-checked both option. Still no tags.

Sorry, I incorrectly assumed 'replaced' rather than 'empty'.

You say everything on the 'tagging' tab is checked.
You are using the built-in libmp3lame. (?)
No error messages.

Tags are written last after all the audio files are written so CUETools needs to be able to edit the audio files. Did you try an alternate output location? Something may be preventing CUETools from editing the files.

Also what software are you using with resulting files? It might be the case that the tags are there, just not in the format the software expects. By default CUETools used Id3v2 tags with mp3 format.

Actually, I have found out what was happening. I only tried with one file at a time, but the tags apparently are written at the end.

Once I have tried with an entire album, it worked, tags are visible and recognized by foobar2000.

Thanks for the help!

I have come across a cd rip that I cannot transcode trough libALAC at compression levels from 3 to 10. I have isolated the specific track and tried to input it as FLAC and WAV with no success. The verification fails and if I disable it and hex compare the WAV extracted from the output file with the original there are large mismatching regions in the middle of the WAV file. Setting lower compression levels (from 0 to 2) results in perfect hash matching audio (when transcoded back to WAV). As it has been one file out of 500~ it seems to be some kind of encoder bug and I would like to submit the file somewhere for testing purposes. Encoding the same file trough iTunes also outputs hash matching audio.

I dug my way back to last July to find that the below quoted bug has been reported.  Just to confirm, I have got a similar error message. In 2.1.4 and then after upgrading, in 2.1.5.

Also I got objections over HDCD (which there isn't?) and Cuetools terminating after encoding pregap - that is a known one?


Just tested the newest 2.1.5, got an exception closing CUETools:
Code: [Select]
System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

Hi.

Thanks for this awesome software

I've been using it quite some time now but I have some questions...
I'm coverting some flac images to mp3 V0 tracks for my portable devices, but I dont know how to join two tracks into one when converting...

Example:

My pink floyd's pressing of Dark side of the moon has the first two tracks splitted (Speak to me/Breathe) which are suppossed to be together, but when converting CUE TOOLS also splits them...

Any way to split the album in tracks but join two or more while converting?

CUETools doesn't support that, and it probably never will. It's not what CUETools is for. You can easily merge two tracks with foobar2000.

They are not, well, it actually depends on the press used. The 1st press of "The Dark Side of the Moon" for example has them together and "Breathe" is called, in the second part of the song, "Breather in the Air".

Been trying to get this software running since yesterday and it's really frustrating. I'm on a fresh install of Windows 7, 64 bit. .Net was already installed and I installed the Visual C++ prereq. Every time I run cueripper or cuetools, it merely says that it "stopped working'. Any have some thoughts to what I can check before I give up and install a different program?

The wiki says "Just unpack the archive to any folder" but you will likely to run into 'permissions' problems if you try to run from within the 'Programs Files' directories on Win7.
Also some security software may restrict the program until you tell that software to allow the program to run normally.

Good day.

I have a problem with creating cue from flac files using cuetools. Cue entry looks like this:

REM COMMENT "cuetools generated dummy CUE sheet"
  FILE "Amerika.flac" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
  INDEX 01 0:00:00
  FILE "Wilder Wine (Exclusive Track). Flac" WAVE
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
  INDEX 01 0:00:00

Unfortunately, this my XBMC only shows track number and not the name of the song. I note that the tags correctly I have done. If I create cue in Foobar in XBMC is already displayed properly track is called - cue already contains the name of the song. Please respect somehow compel cuetools to create cue correctly according to my expectations?

Thank you.

I'm a newbie here and I just wanted to say that cuetools is an excellent program but I really wish it could verify against accurateRip as well as perfectTunes does.

This happens so often, but I'm confident these bugs will get fixed one day. Until then I will keep verifying with perfectTunes.

dudism,
perfectTunes [AccurateRip DiscIDs: 011-0015F267-00BCCCA1-960C3D0B]
cuetools [AccurateRip ID: 0015f0db-00bcc294-8f0c3d0b]
The difference in the lookup ID can come from missing disc pregap or data track info.
This looks like disc pregap (but I'm not going to try to figure out what album this is to confirm). CUETools can find this info in the CUE sheet, an EAC log file (if in same folder) or CDTOC tag (in 2.1.5).

EDIT: This is Ride - Nowhere. It is likely this with a pregap of 00:00:32

I really appreciate that information Korth. I personally don't use cue files because I just stream FLAC to my hifi. I have however found cuetools reliable for verifying without cue files, on approximately 70% of albums. For the albums that don't verify then I use perfectTunes to verify.

One thing that is still confusing me is that if "CDs in the AccurateRip database are identified by the track lengths, with "the track 01 pregap" and data tracks included, then why can perfectTunes always perform the correct lookup without that information? E.g. perfectTunes doesn't require cue files, it just seems to pass the CRC values which returns the correct album and result.

Sorry I'm not that familiar with perfectTunes to know if (in addition to track lengths) it makes use of the AccurateRip database, some other database or some other tag data to get the correct lookup ID.
The CUETools database contains separate pregap data but CUETools doesn't currently parse that data when doing AccurateRip lookups.

Can I ask what ripping program was used on this example?


Note: I edited my previous post.

So I checked. It is ticked and overwrite the original cue, but even that will not be overwritten. I enclose a cue from Foobar created from the same flac.

That CD was ripped to individual FLAC files using EAC. I never used to bother keeping logs (because the logs never used to make sense to me lol).
perfectTunes is new software by Illustrate (the inventors of AccurateRip).

Sorry, not sure then. I haven't been able to duplicate this other than what I suggested. How were these tagged (what program)? Perhaps the way the tags are written to the audio file may be the problem.

It seems that CUERipper still have no support for non-Latin or non-English alphabets for the filenames, in the logs, the M3U playlist and the cuesheet. Tags are fine. Those characters will only get replaced by underscores or question marks.

There seem to have been no changes for a while now in the repository. Can we have a recent compile with the last changes applied ~6 months ago?
