Is it possible multiple tracks to be made into iso.wv?
I like very much the format iso.wv, but what about to be built from multiple songs?

Unfortunately, because of the wav .iso.wv files work, it's impossible to put more than one playable WavPack file in there. That's why they're always, AFAIK, cuesheet+image format.

The reason is very simple. When a program like foobar is playing the .iso.wv file, neither it not the WavPack library have any idea that it's not just a single regular WavPack file. The WavPack library decodes the file because it skips over the .iso header "garbage" at the beginning when it searches for the WavPack header. So you actually could put more than one WavPack file in there, but the only programs that could see them would be .iso parsers.

It's impossible with multiple files, but you can merge wav's and cuesheet's into one file. Later you can split them again if needed.
