Foobar skips first track pregap when decoding

to produce files with errors; first, excessive seektables in converted FLACs


This issue is caused by piping, using - instead of %s and you're not using the latest version which has got --ignore-chunk-sizes. Conversions like that will maxout the points in the seektable, up to 1250 or something. Audio data is untouched though, unless your WAV has got no foreign metadata - it could get encoded as audio. To avoid this issue, don't use the pipe encoding or use the flac command line or a batch script. I suggest that you learn the command line and use some script for this task. If it's foobar2000 then don't use -, use %s instead. From what I've read, WavPack doesn't suffer from this.

As for the cuesheets and indexes, I don't think they are that important anymore since the whole world is going completely digital and file-management based. It is sensible the way foobar2000 treats cuesheets now though.

My problem is similar. Look. I have an APE file with CUE.

Code: [Select]

After I convert it to FLAC with embeded CUE using Foobar 0.9.6 I get this:

As you can see the second CUE contains different tags (for example PREGAP). I tried to decompress both (APE and FLAC) files to WAV single files and WAV tracks using Foobar. It seems there are no difference between them. What do you think? Can it be that this difference in CUE files can affect decompressed file in some situation? Is it normal? Or is it some sort of a bug?
