How to convert FLAC albums to tracks?

(1/2) > >>

I recently used Music Box Alpha to rip a bunch of CDs because they make it dead simple to make guaranteed accurate rips with CUETools (CUERipper).

The only problem is that they rip the entire album to a single FLAC file. But sometimes I want to listen to or play only a specific/single track and not all media players support that. For example, Plex Media Server shows the album as a single, hour-long (or more) track, which makes "shuffle play" kind of useless if you don't want to listen to an entire album at a time.

So now I'm on the lookout for something that can take my perfectly ripped FLAC files and export them as individual tracks using the metadata from the associated CUE file for proper filenames and tags, etc. Ideally the individual tracks would also be FLAC, but I'm willing to accept MP3 for convenience sake.

It would also be nice if it could download the album (cover) art based on the metadata as well, but that's not a requirement.


When I was still transferring my CDs to audio files, I used CDex (v1.51 if I remember correctly, it has been quite a while). As far as I know it supports FLAC (and WAV and MP3) and it's freeware.

Foobar can do this as well.
