Thanks the report.
Ok, try to DRAG & DROP "Songs In The Key Of Life [Disc 2].flac" to foobar2000 FROM EXPLORER, please.

Yes I did that, but like I said in another post...

It will automatically split the tracks, but once you close and reopen foobar they disappear.

Showing individual tracks from a single file image is not the same as splitting the file into separate tracks. If you want to really physically split the files you will have to re-encode.


Check out CUETools.


You don't understand...  As I posted above.  CCR is single FLAC file and all the tracks are split.  I did not re-encode anything.

They disappear from foobar...  Once you close foobar they are gone.  I don't want to have to drag the cue or FLAC file every time just to split the tracks.

Why can CCR, Rage Against the Machine, etc split properly?  No re-encoding...

I suspect you or MusicBee have modified the files from what you originally got, and something weird happened with the tags.

Unfortunately foobar2000 uses tags to override (and overwrite!) info in the embedded cuesheet, so your whole-disc FLAC files need to be untagged before you embed a cue sheet in them.

Do this:
  • Drag one disc's .flac into foobar2000's playlist window.
  • Hold the Shift key and right-click on whatever shows up in the playlist window.
  • Tagging > Remove tags from file(s)
  • Shift+right-click again.
  • Utilities > Edit cuesheet
  • Click "Load...", choose the .cue file for that disc, and click Open.
  • Make sure it's the right disc and that every track has a TITLE and PERFORMER.
  • Click OK.
  • Select whatever is in the playlist and remove it (Delete key). Then reopen the .flac. (No idea why you can't just reload info from files, but it doesn't work for loading a newly embedded cue sheet.)

The playlist should show the separate files now. The playlist should remain unchanged after closing/reopening fb2k.

If it works, then do the same thing for the other disc.

Ok mjb2006 this worked and thank you.

I figured out another way you can do this using mp3tag, which will also preserve any modification dates.

> drop FLAC into mp3tag
> right click file and remove tags
> right click file and go to Extended Tags...
> add field CUESHEET and paste .cue contents
> save file
> open foobar and tracks should be split automatically

I think this is a problem with foobar, not MusicBee.  MusicBee had no problem splitting these files automatically.  I didn't have to touch the tags or play with the cuesheet at all.

So when adding a single FLAC file album to foobar, it seems like foobar needs to have the cuesheet reloaded.  Do that either in foobar itself, or use my method and wipe the tags and re-add the cue in mp3tag.

I can confirm however, that my single FLAC Rage Against the Machine album had no problem splitting automatically in foobar.  I confirmed by looking at the date I added the album to my library and the file modification date.  Reloading the cuesheet will alter the file modification and I did not do that.

So it's very strange that some albums have problems, and some do not...

Anyway consider this resolved.

Sorry I add should add one more thing.

Only with my Stevie Wonder album, did I have problems with the album art.  When I embed the art with MusicBee it would rewrite some tags and corrupt the files in foobar making them unplayable.  To resolve this I added the art with mp3tag instead.

Normally I add the art in MusicBee which properly embeds it in the file and that updates it in foobar. side note >  foobar also works for embedding the art, but I noticed with covers bigger than 1000x1000 foobar glitches up.  If MusicBee embeds it, it works fine in foobar.

Anyway, it was only this one album.  I was able to embed other single FLAC files in MusicBee without them getting corrupted in foobar.

Glad you got it figured out. Thanks for posting a followup.

If you have time, the large image tag issue might get fixed if you post a separate thread in the foobar2000 support forum with instructions on how to cause the error. I will post about the embedded cue sheet being modified.

A terminology issue? When you say "split", do you mean that the tracks that make up the single file are listed as individual tracks in the application?

I guess most of us would say "split" if there is one file per track. I mean, one file in the file system. Not merely one entry in the playlist.

Yes individual tracks is what I meant.  I never re-encoded them. 

When you right click on any track and go open containing folder it will highlight the single FLAC file in Windows Explorer.
