Converting 96/22 FLAC files with CUE
When I convert files from CUE, it wants to do .wav is there a way to keep the FLAC format without it touching it?

These are 96/22 FLAC files.

Thanks, Rob

Ok, is there software then that will allow me to convert it to FLAC without it affecting the audio quality?? I've tried Switch and Media Monkey, both mess up the audio quality.

Your files are single track FLAC files with external CUEs? Or with embedded CUEs? YOu want to create multiple files from that?

FWIW foobar2000 will happily convert either of them to multiple tracks, if that is what you're looking for. It will also, of course, keep the original bit depth and sample rate.
It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

The files are 96/22 FLAC, when converting, it will put them as ,wavs (bad for tagging) I need them as FLAC without it messing up the audio quality will fubar do that? These are general audio files that need to be split.

It's foobar2000, not fubar.

Yes, it will convert the files to FLAC quite happily. Just select the tracks, right click, Convert, select the three dots, then pick your desired output format and destination.

As verified by a double-blind test, or just your placebo effect? As implied by its expanded name, Free Lossless Audio Codec, the audio data in a file using the FLAC format will be exactly the same as that in a WAV file decompressed from it. If these programs were doing something so incompetently that this were not the case, I imagine we’d have heard about it before now.
