Do you guys know some tool other than fb2k that can load multiple WAV+CUE files and cut them including the pregaps? The program should act exactly the same as EAC and its "Split WAV By CUE Sheet With Gaps Corrected" function, but should allow processing of multiple files. I would like to do this over the night and having to load each WAV+CUE file manually in EAC and wait for the splitting to finish in order to load the next file is too much hassle.

I want to put gaps before tracks because I have several live CDs that have non-silent pre-gaps. What I meant with foobar2000 is that you can drag the CUE files and then use the converter to write WAV, MP3 or whatever files. If I drag and drop "Pink Floyd - The Wall (Disc 1).cue" and "Pink Floyd - The Wall (Disc 2).cue" on fb2k, the playlist is populated and I can see each track. Then I select WAV as output format for the converter and convert to the same directory. fb2k then creates a WAV for each file.

BTW, in case this isn't clear - I am not talking about CUE sheets that refer to multiple files. I have one CUE file per WAV file (and vice versa) and need to split 50 albums.

On the topic of splitting WAVs via CUE...

I've got a disc, Songs in the Key of X, that has a whole extra song hidden in the pregap of Track 1. To extract it, I either have to have EAC "Copy Image and Create CUE Sheet" or "Test & Copy Selected Tracks" with gaps appended to "Next Track", (I opted for this one to get the CRC check).

Now here's the dilemma: once I have the CUE and the WAVs extracted, is there a program that will let me choose precisely how the WAVs are split? For example, I'd like to split TRACK 01 into two different files: INDEX 00 (the hidden song) and INDEX 01 (the song on the tracklist); and with the other pregaps on the disc, I'd like them appended to the previous track (so there's no silence waiting for a song to start). Since the disc was extracted with gaps appended to the Next Track, this can get kind of messy...

What I've been doing is using EAC to split any Track with a pregap into two WAV files, and then appending the gap to the proper file with EAC's wav editor as needed. It gets the job done, but I just thought I'd check and make sure there's not an easier way...

I have tried CUE Tools and CUE Splitter, but AFIAK, each gap/track will be handled the same way depending on your settings.

To extract it, I either have to have EAC "Copy Image and Create CUE Sheet" or "Test & Copy Selected Tracks" with gaps appended to "Next Track", (I opted for this one to get the CRC check).

There is a third option (which I prefer):

1. Detect gaps (F4)
2. Select the first track
3. Action>Copy Selected Tracks Index-Based
4. Keep only the 01.00 file and delete the rest created by this process.

This works well in combination with ripping tracks with gaps appended to the previous track.

To keep everything together, I simply modify the noncompliant CUE sheet to include the 01.00 track.

Example:
CODE
FILE "01.00 - hidden track.wav" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 00:00:00
FILE "01 - track01.wav" WAVE
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 XX:XX:XX
FILE "02 - track02.wav" WAVE
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
...

EDIT: And if you're concerned about test and copy, you can always extract the 01.00 index twice and compare the results.
