the pregap information is not *needed* for playback in car CD player. Again, I was interested in this topic, and I thought that this discussion might yield some fruitful information. Apparently, this is the wrong answer and I should have said that somehow my life depended on it, so it could justify your valuable "contributions" to this discussion.
It seemed to me you simply wanted a problem solved. I'm sorry for looking at this from a practical perspective without considering whether you actually wanted to dive deep into the minutia.
Life is too short: CUETools is a fine tool to construct a cue sheet and fill it with CD-TEXT info.
Really? You want to disable subsongs altogether? Just because of a handful of buggy songs?
Sure. It was a 'hack'. Usually used in game music/jingles or hidden pranks. I have playlist with 4000+ .mod files and I'm not sure if there is a single song part I really need to access that way. Don't need to be default, but being able to get rid of them would be nice and... why not?
You really never do let up, do you? Is trolling people on these forums your only joy in life?
1) I put up my post in response to Porcus's recent post that CueTools could generate the CUE from log, which happens to be a topic that I'm interested in. I wasn't "mining for titles" as you suggested.
2) No, the pregap information is not *needed* for playback in car CD player. Again, I was interested in this topic, and I thought that this discussion might yield some fruitful information.

3) You desperately need an attitude adjustment. I know you are knowledgeable as hell but I honestly can't remember the last time I read a post from you that had a straightforward answer without a heaping of attitude to go along with it.
Regarding problem itself I bet this is aggressive power management - your Android is set up in such way that it quickly closes unused apps. Check settings in "Apps" and "Power" sections of Settings app. Exact settings and the way to access them vary between various Android versions. For example Sony's Stamina caused that I had to add Textra to "Never optimized apps" to be able to hear and see notifications from this app, especially after longer time or when battery level dropped below 15%.

I find the aggressive push for higher bandwidths at lower bitrates slightly surprising, especially for speech.
I mean, obviously one wants to quit doing narrowband as soon as possible; it misses almost all the energy in many consonants, harming intelligibility, and everything including vowels sounds flat. Mediumband is much better but still an obvious degradation. But wideband is quite good and I'm happier with an 8KHz lowpass than I am with most kinds of distortions. SWB speech is frequently non-ABXable from fullband, since above 12K there's so often little other than noise of dubious audibility.
So it's surprising to find that the encoder will now be spending bits at rather low bitrates on coding 12-20KHz rather than spending more bits on accuracy in the frequency range where the formants and most of the consonant energy are. I wonder what kind of listening tests etc suggested making such a move.
Down the road I wonder whether something like the WaveNet codec2 decoding demo will end up making SBR, hybrid mode, etc mostly obsolete for speech.

Really? You want to disable subsongs altogether? Just because of a handful of buggy songs? Fine, but I'm leaving them enabled by default. And my other player, Cog, is going to be hardcoded to enable them.
e: These look like legitimate subsongs, unplayed songs you wouldn't know about otherwise without a tracker. Did you even bother to play them?
