Title: How do I use CUETools to split FLAC?
Post by: php111 on 2013-09-21 18:25:32
I honestly tried to keep searching Google for a short easy direct answers to use CUETools to split tracks using the CUE file, but I wasn't understanding how. I am that frustrated to figure this out so I gave up on searching and instead I am posting. How do I split a CUE file into tracks using CUETools?

Thank you,

You tried searching threads here?

I assume your input is image+cue. Output is flac tracks.

Input: Folder Browser (select the CUE file, not folder for best first-time results)
Output: your choice Browse, Manual or Template (I'm not going to guess what you want to do)
Action: Encode (Script: default)
Mode: Tracks
Audio Output: Lossless; flac; libflac (I'd start with libflac as it is the most common)
Go

If any popup windows appear, make selections as needed.

Thank you so much! Would it be best to leave the Template on default?

To be honest I don't remember which of the four default templates shows in the window.

[%directoryname%\]%filename%-new[%unique%].cue
will put the files in the same folder as the input. Be aware that files in use cannot be overwritten and will result in an error message.

[%directoryname%\]new[%unique%]\%filename%.cue
will put the files in a subfolder 'new' within the same folder as the input.

%music%\Converted\%artist%\[%year% - ]%album%[ '('disc %discnumberandname%')'][' ('%releasedateandlabel%')'][' ('%unique%')']\%artist% - %album%.cue
or
%music%\Converted\%artist%\[%year% - ]%album%[' ('%releasedateandlabel%')'][' ('%unique%')']\%artist% - %album%[ '('disc %discnumberandname%')'].cue
either of these will put files in your Windows Music folder in a subfolder 'Converted'.

Post by: korth on 2013-09-22 12:36:07
Did you rename the flac image and not correct the CUE file?

filename.CUE should be in same folder as the flac image filename.flac
The flac image filename.flac should match what's in the CUE file
FILE "filename.flac" WAVE

Note: CUETools can usually autocorrect for filename.wav in the CUE file.
Note2: There is a Correct filenames tool in CUETools
select CUE file
Action: Correct filenames
Mode: Locate files
that will try to find the file(s) and correct the existing CUE (when Overwrite button is highlighted) or create a new filename.flac.cue CUE file. [edit] this tool locates minor filename differences, not for completely renamed files

I'll try that a little later. I didn't edit the FLAC image. It was the CUE file. The CUE is incorrect, first being my tracks are listed as 01 - the track name, and in the CUE sheet it's 201. Second being "track name.wav" WAVE, so, yes, I have to correct, and I did not know that before. Thank you!

I tried exactly that to correct it and it still cannot locate the audio files. I also deleted my FLAC tracks and then tried correcting it in notepad and correcting the file names in CUETools, but CUETools still gives the error exception: cannot locate the audio files.
Title: How do I use CUETools to split FLAC?
Post by: korth on 2013-09-22 16:27:23
For every
FILE "filename.flac" WAVE
in the CUE file there has to be an audio file with that same name in the same folder as the CUE file.
Are you sure no audio file is missing or misnamed? No strange 'special characters' in the filename?

I didn't edit the FLAC image. It was the CUE file. The CUE is incorrect, first being my tracks are listed as 01 - the track name, and in the CUE sheet it's 201.

How else did you edit the original CUE file? Could you post it (in a textbox)?

[edit: added 'audio' to describe 'file']

1.) I don't know how to use textbox.

2.) I deleted out the FLAC tracks, so I only have the one single CUE file with all tracks in one.

3.) I only used notepad to edit the CUE file.

The CUE (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Cue_sheet) is only a text file used to provide information to a program about the audio files. The CUE contains no audio. If you deleted all the flac files and have nothing left but the CUE file, you have no audio files to process. That's why CUETools can't locate them.

Joined the forum in order to express my Thanks.  Was having the same frustration over single track FLAC/Cue music files and your solution was just-exactly-perfect.  Concise, to the point and I had 100% success on the 1st try.  And that was the 1st time I even encountered CUEtools at all.  So, Thank You with my appreciation for the great assist.

Title: How do I use CUETools to split FLAC?
Post by: Jim12 on 2015-02-09 12:32:15
Thank you for your helpful posts korth. If possible I'd like to ask something on the same topic:

I have single-file FLAC album which I want to split up in individual FLAC files for each track using CUE tools but without hurting the sound quality. Does the different encoder options (libFLAC, FLACCL etc) affect the sound quality? And most importantly, how should I handle the "Compression Level" bar? 

I ask this because I already tried to split a single-file FLAC album, but although the size of the original file is 340 MB, when split it with libFLAC encoder and the compression bar set to 0, the size of the split files is 397 MB in total, which means 57MB larger than the original single file.
However, when I split the same file with the compression level set to 8, the size of the split files is 340 MB in total (equal to the size of the original file).
Does this indicate that when you split a single FLAC file to several separate ones the total size of the separate files will always be larger or perhaps I did something wrong? 

Thanks a lot for your time.

There is a certain bit of overhead with a FLAc file due to headers, metadata etc., so using the same quality setting, multiple files will take up more space than the single file due to duplicated headers.

Lower numbers encode faster with less compression, higher numbers encode slower with more compression. Default for libFLAC is -5.
See CUETools FLAC encoders comparison (http://www.cuetools.net/wiki/CUETools_FLAC_encoders_comparison) for more info on the different FLAC encoders in CUETools.

Makes sense. Which options would you recommend for splitting FLAC files without hurting the quality of the original file?

On cuetools wiki it mentions:
libFLAC is a reference FLAC 1.3.1 - It's main advantage is that it's a standard implementation that almost everybody else uses, so it's less likely to cause any problems, but it's less efficient than other.[/i]

Since it is less efficient than the other encoders it probably reduces the quality of the tracks right?

So if understand correctly, the best option for optimal quality is 0 right?

Thanks.

No. "Less efficient" means either that the encoding takes a longer time, or that the result takes more space. It is still exactly the same audio data.

No. The settings only affect how long the encoding process takes, and the file size.  It is still exactly the same audio data.

So when using CUE tools to split a FLAC file it would be better to set the compression level to 8 since the size of the files will be smaller and the difference in the encoding time will only be a few seconds.

However, will the playback of those split files affect negatively the battery runtime of my portable player since the processor has more work to do reading highly compressed FLAC files in contrast to less compressed ones?

That was always the thought, but it turns out to be a non-issue. See posts 7 & 8 of this thread: http://www.hydrogenaud.io/forums/index.php?showtopic=107990 (http://www.hydrogenaud.io/forums/index.php?showtopic=107990)

With this in mind, I use maximum compression now.

Very interesting, thanks for the input mjb2006.
The difference in the Decode time - Processor occupation is there, but slight indeed.

However, if there's no actual difference neither in the processor occupation nor in the sound quality, why would the option of lower compression level even exist since there are zero advantages to it practically? Just because of the fact that encoding process takes a few seconds less?
The difference in the encoding time is so negligible that it doesn't make complete sense to me.

Also, what I don't understand about this table is how is it possible for FLAC to outperform MP3 in almost all devices while at the same time it is known that when FLAC files are used the battery of every DAP lasts much less than is the case of MP3 files.

Because FLAC was designed for speed of decoding - i.e., designed to decode with a low number of CPU calculations. MP3 had a totally different purpose, it was designed to compress well at least possible loss of audible quality.

There are also losslesses that compress a few percents better than FLAC, but which take a lot of time to decode. Like, in the more extreme modes, Monkey's Audio, OptimFrog and WavPack. Those modes sacrifice speed for compression. Not quality - they just spend more effort getting an efficient packing.

(TAK impresses me, it is more or less the only thing that can beat FLAC at both compression and time simultaneously. Not so sure about time anymore though.)

So the Decode time rates are not equivalent to the impact that the playback of each format has on the battery. ?'m not yet convinced that higher compressed FLAC files do not require a higher number of CPU calculations and therefore reduce the battery runtime.

A possible reason for battery drain: there's at least 3X more disk I/O for FLAC, because of it's size?

Maybe if I explain a bit it will help.

[' ('%year%')']

[] makes it conditional (the square brackets won't be printed). If %year% doesn't have a value then everything between the [] won't be added.
() are reserved ([] as well). You need to wrap them between single quotes to use them as characters. '(' ')'
The placement of the space doesn't matter. This is the same:
[ '('%year%')']

I figured it would be better to try and hop on an existing thread rather than start yet another newbie question thread.  I hope this is allowed.

I have been happily decoding single FLAC file albums for the last week using CUETools.  I always see it mentioned to do one album only, at a time, when decompressing the album into its individual tracks (still FLAC format).  I have noticed that when I do a single album (CUE & 1 FLAC file for entire album) I am asked to choose from a bunch of similar entries with the same Band/Album Title as what I'm decompressing.  I gather it gets this information from databases that know exactly what this album should look like, but there are usually different selections for different countries, or a re-issue might have a different date than the original...I get all of that.

Now, if I put a checkmark into a folder called Pink Floyd because I know it has 3 subfolders with different Pink Floyd albums, each containing proper CUE/FLAC, once I hit go it will run through all 3 of those albums decoding them into their respective directories.  When I do this, I notice that I'm no longer allowed to select the particular album information (country, record company, etc) that I always get to do if doing only one album at a time.  Does this cause problems?  Like I said, everywhere I've googled it always says to do one album at a time...well, then why is there even the capability to select a root directory with 3 subfolder albums or 20 subfolder albums?

I hope I've been clear.  If someone could expand on the subject of doing one CUE/FLAC album decompress into individual tracks, at a time versus selecting multiple albums to decompress.  The good, the bad & the ugly of this?  Thanks for your time.

CUETools will run in 'batch mode' (or 'automated mode') when it detects you are processing more than one CD rip. All pop-up windows are turned off when running in 'batch mode' so the user doesn't need to interact.

Yes.  That's what I trying to convey...I wish I had used the correct wording "Batch Mode".  Anyway, a few places said something like "Don't use Batch Mode.  Do multiple albums separately." Meaning, one by one.  I understand that in Batch Mode I will not be able to assign an exact CD (for tagging purposes) to that image, but off the top of my head I can't see any reason whatsoever not to use Batch Mode when facing 20 & 30 disc collections.  Perhaps I was reading old postings/websites?

I guess that's my question:  Is there any reason I wouldn't/shouldn't use Batch Mode?  Sorry for being so n00bish about this.  It's embarrassing, believe me.  I can't believe it's 2017 and I have to even ask these questions.

Hi
I've run into an issue trying to split two flac files, one has side one of the wall and the other side 2. The two files and the cue sheet are in the same directory.
All seems fine, open cue file and it populates the fields correctly.  I then split the files, again all goes as it should and after a short processing time it asks which directory to store them, I pick the same directory.  Then it comes back as complete.  However there are no split files in the directory, just the two original files and cue sheet.
I've run out of ideas of what is going wrong.  I have done this process many times before without a glitch.  I've checked the PC to see if the files are being stored somewhere else, but it is not.   I have repeated this several times now, using different directories to save the files but no difference.  The strange thing is that the whole process seems to be fine, just no output even though Cue Splitter says complete.
Any ideas of what is going on are appreciated.

hello. New to cuetools and the forum here.
I'm currently redoing my whole music library. I have a bunch of "image/cue" files. I've used cuetools to split them into individual tracks and it works great. But a few, (hi-res I believe) I get the following error, "audio format is not Red Book PCM". What does it mean and how can I get cuetools to work with the file? I've searched on the internet and just end up getting more confused.
If cuetools won't work with hi-res files, is there a program that can take a hi-res flac/cue file and spit it accurately into individual tracks without loss of quality?
Additionally, what do you recommend for converting files? I used to use dbpoweramp for conversion from flac to mp3, but that was years ago.
thanks in advance for your help.

CUETools will only accept 2-channel 16-bit 44,100 Hz PCM (or losslessly compressed) for input.
Try foobar2000 to split hi-res audio.
CUETools.Converter.exe is a command-line program for converting individual files. It is not limited to Red Book only. It cannot split image/cue though.
foobar2000 can convert individual files.
CUETools can convert all files from a CD (see above input limitation).

thank you so much for the reply.
I'm actually trying to use foobar2000 as well but have an issue with it.
I load the cue sheets, it shows me the individual tracks. Highlight them all. right click and convert.  converter setup window appears.
Output format - flac, level five.
Destination -
Processing - none..
hit convert another window opens up asking to locate flac.exe. What is this?
is there a step by step instruction for dummies?

Did you add the Encoder Pack?

Edit: I see you already started a topic in the foobar2000 forums. Please ask any additional questions about foobar2000 there.
