flac will exit with code 1 if there were any errors, including when the MD5 checksum doesn't match the audio.Can you run Action:Verify on the input without error? You can also test your input file for errors with the flac frontend or with the flac command-line flac.exe -t yourinputfile.flac
If it happens right away, it might be due to wrong command line parameters.
Is it possible, using CUETools, to split the album file right though the error, i.e. ignoring the error? That way, one can at least harvest all the tracks, to find the faulty one to possibly repair, and gain all all the good ones. May I also ask if CUETools is capable of splitting single track 24-bit albums into multiple tracks from the cue file? If not, would you kindly please recommend an application that can do that? I do not want to downsample the files.
is there a way to NOT have the cue file copied over to the destination directory.
c:\lame\lame.exe has exited prematurely with code 1: The pipe has been ended.
I'm trying to use the external encoder - lame, so I can control the tags
I try to encode to tracks using VBR(lame.exe). the settings are Path: c:\lame\lame.exeParameters: --vbr-new -b %M - %O
Cuetools seems to ignore some Metadata that is in MusicBrainz.

QuoteI'm trying to use the external encoder - lame, so I can control the tagsYou can't control the tags from the encoder. CUETools handles all tags using internal taggers (e.g. TagLibSharp).
Quote from: dpr on 29 December, 2017, 12:23:56 PMCuetools seems to ignore some Metadata that is in MusicBrainz.CUETools gets metadata from the CTDB. The CTDB (CUETools Database) replicates and stores relevant data from MusicBrainz (and other databases).
I found that Genre, Year, Part of a Compilation, Composer and disc# tags in the MP3s were not filled in even though the information is in the MusicBrainz entry for the CD concerned. https://musicbrainz.org/release/a5939b2e-841a-4dbf-8e1c-1f9a519c5f53
Where do i find that?
Quote from: dpr on 01 January, 2018, 03:59:12 PMWhere do i find that?With default settings, a log file named *.accurip should be in the folder with your mp3 files.edit: this file can be read in a text editor such as notepad.If you converted a single rip, the log also appears in the window at the bottom of the GUI at the end of the process.
Is there a way to converts only specific tracks from cue/flac to a different format (ie mp3)

I can't seem to find that option.
A word of warning to those using CUETools 2.1.6 on linux (WINE): Do not use the libFLAC decoder! For some reason, it doesn't produce valid output. The audio checksum differs on every decoding attempt (verify/encode), and of course no accurateRip/CTDB match is possible. Changing to cuetools decoder solves the issue. I wasted a day trying to figure out why all my windows PCs report 70/70 match while all my linux PCs report 0/70, using the exact same portable CUETools installation.
