HELP. CueTools individual files to 1-file-per-album

I'm pretty new to Cuetools. I'd like to convert some old albums ripped with plextools to flac 1 file-per-track to 1 file-per-album + cue.

Action=Encode (default)
Mode=Image+Cue
Audio Output=Lossless
Pregap: 00
Data Track: 00
Offset: 0

Using the above, I get the following accurip file:

Code: [Select]

My understanding of the above is that with an offset of 30 the rip/encode was accurate. Wasn't the offset already applied when ripped?

The DAElog from Plextools doesn't tell me the offset that was used, but just that all tracks were successfully ripped.

So, do I need to re-encode and enter '30' in the offset box or was it automatically applied by Cuetools? Do I need to choose Encode+correct offset option?

Yeah, I'm pretty confused at the moment.

Could someone please explain the best way to accurately re-encode the indivual album tracks to image+cue

Any help would be most appreciated

Apparently not.

Before wondering if you need to alter the offset, I suggest you do a little research into what an offset actually is.  Once you do you will soon see exactly how unimportant this business about offsets really is.
Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

Note also that there are two different ‘reference’ offset values: that originally calculated by Andre Wiethoff when devising the offset correction system for EAC, and a later and technically more accurate one obtained by IpseDixit. The difference between the two? 30 samples! This perhaps works in favour of greynol’s final statement.

I sometimes point out that the offset between different pressings can often be larger than that between different drives.

Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?
