Cue sheet

Hi,

I'd like to have the structure of the cue file (for a simple wav).
Do you know where I can find it a description of it?

Thx

If you are talking about the cuesheet standard, I think the appendix in the CDRWIN User's Guide (2.5MB) is the closest there is.

I don't really understand what you mean though.

A simple example of a cuesheet would be like so:

Code: [Select]
FILE "My File.wav" WAVE
 TRACK 01 AUDIO
   INDEX 01 00:00:00
 TRACK 02 AUDIO
   INDEX 01 03:00:00
 TRACK 03 AUDIO
   INDEX 01 06:30:00


What do you want to do?

Actually, I try to use the cu sheets because a have to split a wav file in several pieces. And I thought it was a good idea to use cue sheets.
The wav is not from a CD and I don't want to burn it, I just want to split it.

So, I created the cue with notepad and split the wav with fb2k but the cut isn't exactly what I asked in the cue file.  I don't get it 
Here is the cue file:

PERFORMER "x"
TITLE "y"
FILE "v1.WAV" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "Intro"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    TITLE "0"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 00:12:14
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    TITLE "1"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 00:38:52
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    TITLE "2"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 00:51:95
  TRACK 05 AUDIO
    TITLE "3"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 01:16:85
  TRACK 06 AUDIO
    TITLE "4"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 01:56:07
  TRACK 07 AUDIO
    TITLE "5"
    PERFORMER "xx"
    INDEX 01 02:20:78



If we compare the length of each wav based on the cue values and their real length, we have a significant difference:
Cue   Real
12140   12187
26380   26507
13430   13573
24900   24867
39220   38960
24710   24957
48230   49975

Somebody knows why?

Thx for your help

The time format used in cuesheets is mm:ss:ff - minutes:seconds:frames.

There are 75 frames to 1 second.

I see some of your entries have values as high as 95 for the number of frames (e.g.: 00:51:95).

I guess you think this value is 1/100th of a second, instead of 1/75th of a second.

So, for example, 00:51:95 should be 00:51:71 (95% of 75 is 71.25).

You'r right. I took it for 1/100 sec.
That's why I asked for the description of the structure...

Thank you Synthetic.

Hi,

I don't know, if anyone is interested in the following. I like using Notepad++ as text editor. That's an open source text editor, link:
http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm
I also use it to view cue sheets. Since Notepad++ supports creating user defined syntax highlighting styles, I created a simple style for Cue Sheet. So when I open a cue sheet in Notepad++, there is syntax highlighting, for example index points are green, etc.

If anyone is interested, I can post it here.

speaking of structure. I have a cue sheet taken from an album (Opeth - Blackwater Park), and it looks like this:

Code: [Select]
FILE "CDImage.wav" WAVE
 TRACK 01 AUDIO
   INDEX 01 00:00:00
   INDEX 02 00:28:15
   INDEX 03 08:55:62
 TRACK 02 AUDIO
   INDEX 01 10:23:37
 TRACK 03 AUDIO
   INDEX 01 19:39:32
 TRACK 04 AUDIO
   INDEX 00 25:38:02
   INDEX 01 25:40:67
 TRACK 05 AUDIO
   INDEX 00 36:32:70
   INDEX 01 36:34:57
   INDEX 02 37:12:05
   INDEX 03 38:18:10
   INDEX 04 42:19:72
 TRACK 06 AUDIO
   INDEX 00 44:25:67
   INDEX 01 44:28:32
   INDEX 02 51:59:45
 TRACK 07 AUDIO
   INDEX 00 53:10:45
   INDEX 01 53:12:72
 TRACK 08 AUDIO
   INDEX 00 55:02:72
   INDEX 01 55:05:27


is having Index 2,3,4 etc a normal occurance? the songs are long and have different parts to it, and these indexes mark where thos parts begin, but I've never seen that done before.

Yes, it's normal. Those are indexes inside of the track. Some CD Players display those indexes on the LCD.
