Split CUE File and losslessly compressed Audio (FLAC, ape, …)

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

For some reason, I had to split a CUE file and a losslessly compressed audio file into single files to make it one file per track instead of one big file. My audio file was compressed with APE which I didn’t know before at all.  But it has a weird license anyway.

So I came across a really good page describing what to do which is basically using shntool (homepage). It’s really good, easy to use and has built in transcoding through appropriate third party programs, so I could transcode to Vorbis on the fly :-) It converts anything to anything, as long as it’s sound so you might find that tool useful as well :-)

A quick note to myself and interested fellows:

To convert anything mplayer can play to a WAVE file, issue the following command:

 mplayer -ao pcm:waveheader:file="file.wav" file.mp3

I had to do this, because the Java SoundClip seems to be unable to play MP3 or OGG.
