I've found many topics concerning cuesheets but can't find an answer to my problem.

A while ago I ripped entire albums with cuesheets. Most were done in FLAC, some in MPC. I've now decided I'd rather hold the individual tracks in my library. I've had no problem splitting the FLAC files but for the MPC ones the only way I can find do it is to use the Converter to convert them to another format or to MPC again, which I'd rather avoid. Is there a way of simply saving the tracks from the playlist - still in MPC format - once FB2K has opened the cuesheet?

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm new to Foobar and just can't find a way of doing it.

Thanks

As an example I converted a test image - The Go! Team's "Grip Like A Vice" CD single - into an MPC image.

I then took the cue sheet:

CODE
PERFORMER "The Go! Team"
TITLE "Grip Like A Vice"
FILE "The Go! Team - Grip Like A Vice.wv" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "Grip Like A Vice"
    PERFORMER "The Go! Team"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    TITLE "A Version Of Myself"
    PERFORMER "The Go! Team"
    INDEX 00 04:01:38
    INDEX 01 04:03:45

I converted the index 01 of track 2 into samples:

CODE
samples = (4 * 60 * 44100) + (3 * 44100) + (45/75 * 44100) = 10742760

I then ran mpccut as so:

CODE
mpccut -e 10742760 "The Go! Team - Grip Like A Vice.mpc" "01 - Grip Like A Vice.mpc"
mpccut -s 10742760 "The Go! Team - Grip Like A Vice.mpc" "02 - A Version Of Myself.mpc"

Notice I omit the start for the first track, and the end for the last track. If your image has more than two tracks the tracks in between will need to specify both -s and -e. NB: It appears that -s of track two should be -e of track one, -s of track three should be -e of track two, etcetera. To begin I used 10742759 as the end of track 1, but that didn't tally with foobar reporting the samples of the image with cue sheet.

Best of luck.

Edit: In an attempt to clarify further, let's pretend that my cue sheet had three tracks, with the index 01 of track three being 07:34:27, or 20037276 ((7*60*44100) + (34*44100) + (27/75*44100)) samples:

CODE
mpccut -e 10742760 "The Go! Team - Grip Like A Vice.mpc" "01.mpc"
mpccut -s 10742760 -e 20037276 "The Go! Team - Grip Like A Vice.mpc" "02.mpc"
mpccut -s 20037276 "The Go! Team - Grip Like A Vice.mpc" "03.mpc"
