Recommended approach for encoding multiple CD albums


I have a number of multi-cd albums that I'd like to encode.  I have an 'ideal' output format, but I'm also trying to understand what the Cuetools recommended approach is.

My CDs were ripped from EAC and have DISCNUMBER and TOTALDISCS set when there is more than one CD.
My single CD albums don't.


Ideally, I'd like to output
- tracks with no track number in the file name and the order listed in the .m3u file. (accomplished on single CDs)
- all the tracks encoded into one folder.
- track numbers to be  %title%) (already done with setting track format output.
- the m3u file containing all the tracks... it is seperate for each CD that is encoded.

Thanks for the help

Currently i simply renumber them as if they were one CD and not multiple ones. I even remove the disc number from the data. After that it should be simple to put them in one M3U list.

Error Limits
More than 99 tracks - Exception: [Index] out of range
Track start position ~140 minutes or above - Exception: invalid stride

Without %tracknumber% in the filename it is possible for 2 tracks to have the same filename. The second file will overwrite the first without warning.

Ive got a lot of cds to sort out... its a lot to do manually

Would be simpler if it didnt overwrite, but used the %unique% function. Im sceptical that a group of cds would have the sane track name and therefore filename. How do i request features in the next version?

https://github.com/gchudov/cuetools.net/issues plus I'm going to add a thread here (that I hope will be looked at by the developer and collaborators).

Some albums have a song reprise or continuation without a different name in the metadata. Some albums have mono and stereo versions of the same title that sometimes aren't noted in the metadata. I thought of %unique% but it doesn't catch this. It only works on files that existed [in the output directory] before you clicked 'Go'.

I haven't posted it yet but I plan to leave it *read only* for the first few days.
