Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Cue Files

Hi all, just a quick question. Is there a program that can make a cue file from a compilation of flac files.
Thank You Bonedaddy - payuppal

You didn't specify an OS so I'll assume Windows
You didn't specify how simple or detailed the CUE file needed to be.
You can make a simple CUE with a BAT file or copy/paste over a template
FILE "File01.flac" WAVE
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
FILE "File02.flac" WAVE
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
FILE "File06.flac" WAVE
    INDEX 01 00:00:00

The CUETools suggestion by Roseval will make a more detailed CUE file but all audio files must be 16-bit, 44.1kHz samples stereo.
If the files aren't already tagged as a compilation including an Album Artist tag (e.g. Various Artists), you'll need to create a simple M3U playlist file (and place inside folder) to use for the input file in CUETools and you'll need to edit top-level (whole disc) Performer and Title commands after the CUE is created. CUETools will add Performer and Title commands per track from the tags in each FLAC file.
