I fail to see the point of all that. What are you trying to acomplish? If the disks are accurately ripped in comparison with AR database, just burn them with correct offset for your recorder.
Programmatically (I don't know about Picard), it is possible to compute the DiscID from appropriately ripped FLACs alone, except when there's a pregap before track one (a short pregap of 33 frames or whatever is not uncommon). The pregap information should be available in the cue sheet though.
That, too, is needlessly overcomplicated.skamp already noted that one can calculate the disc ID without requiring the CD; perhaps you weren’t interested, since you didn’t acknowledge that, but anyway, here’s how to do it yourself:http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Disc_ID_Calcula...ing_the_Disc_IDPerhaps someone else has already made an application to do this, but the source code is downloadable if not.
Wow - I'm really getting off to a bad start here. I hope I'm not causing any offence!! Sorry too, by the way for referring to a site which violates TOS - I will find the TOS, and read them.
Using MusicBrainz wiki (including the link you provided) I haven't yet found a way to calculate my own discID without requiring the physical CD.
EAC log to TOC/Disc ID scriptWritten script that reads EAC log files, calculates TOC in format used in musicbrainz and opens browser to look up release with this disc id or to add disc id to release:[links]Can be useful for contributing disc ids when you have log file but don't have original disc, or if you don't want to find and insert disc you already grabbed with EAC. […]Of course, script only works on EAC logs with TOC listing, some logs don't have one.
[...]and include full EAC logs plus CUE sheets. Is it possible to use this information to rebuild an image of each CD that I can then reliably use to get a discID with MusicBrainz Picard?[...]The whole point of discID (for me, at least) would be that there's zero ambiguity - so if there's even the slightest risk of generating a discID that would be different from the "the real thing" then it would be pointless...
