what I'm trying to do is using a wav image + cuesheet as input for lame to automaticly create files using the "--nogap" option.

I found info about lame with cuesheet input here. The patch is outdated and it's successor is "acdir" which interprets and pipes the cuesheet to lame or other encoders.

Now, I want to to exactly the same thing the patch did with acdir: Take an image and encode it to a series of files using the --nogap option, but acdir seems to refuse the setting of --nogap or better: it parses it to lame but no mp3s are created.

I know that --nogap is quite a cripple workaround, but I'd still like to be able to create mp3s that play gapless on hardware players, that don't read the lame info tag, in one step - you know most don't...

Anyone has got the same problem as I have an solved it? wink.gif

The combined commands may be something like:

ACDIR.EXE -o "mp3\%n - $~t.wav" --extract CDImage.cue

GLOB.EXE -c LAME.EXE -V2 --vbr-new --nogaptags --nogap mp3\*.wav

Those commands assume that everything is all in the same directory (files and apps), or that the apps are in your PATH (i.e.: system32).

As you can probably see, this will set ACDIR to extract all tracks to a folder called "mp3", and then use GLOB to pick up only those waves in "mp3" and pass them in a list to LAME's --pregap switch.

Edit: The main problem I can see with this is that you are losing the ability to tag the files using ACDIR's variables. Maybe you could somehow use Tag as a third command to then tag the files - either from filename, or maybe an external file. I'm not that up on tagging from a file but I believe that Tag can do it.
