Divide albums to tracks without burning them, using CUE Splitter

CUE Splitter is a free Windows program that splits a single big audio track, usually an album or a compilation, into the relative individual audio tracks, using information contained in the associated “CUE” file.

Sometimes you can find a big compressed audio file (for example MP3, APE, FLAC, OGG, WAV, WMA, etc…) equipped with a small “CUE” text-file that contains information about track titles, artist and length. Usually these files are generated by programs like EAC (Exact Audio Copy), CDRWin, BPM Studio, GoldWave or similar.

With CUE Splitter you can split audio track files without burning to CDR or decode/re-encode any audio data! Moreover audio files are automatically named using a user-defined “file mask” string, it’s tags are filled with information extracted from the “CUE” file and, optionally, an M3U playlist can be generated.

Note: if you don’t need the ape or flac excessive quality, first convert these formats to mp3 and after that split the mp3 file with CUE Splitter, because it works much slower with ape or flac formats, while mp3 files are divided instantly. Note also that XRecode will simultaneously convert the audio to MP3 and divide it to tracks following its cue file.
