I have big collection of music ripped to 'file.flac' & 'file.cue', so I need to split it to separate files.

Currently tested a lot of tools, but Medieval CUE Splitter does task fastest. But is it safe to use for whole collection?

I don't need CRC checksums, just want to split my collection.



p.s. sorry for my poor English..

Okay okay,

1. I do not need silence before or after tracks/1:1 track copies (by lenght).

2. I need just split my files, do it FAST (because it's about ~150 discographys of different bands, hundreds of albums), and don't hurt quality.

Medieval doesn't encodes files, just physically splits and writes tags, or I'm wrong? If yes, then I fully understand why files won't pass any verification. But by the way - I just want to split for future digital usage (I've never burned audio CD and will never do it in future).

3. I use Linux. Medieval works under Wine, CUEtools requires additional Micro$oft crapware such NET Framework. Default Linux tools like Flacon or shnsplit is a joke.

It's not just a "if I burn it to CD issue". You may well hear nasty clicks at the beginning of tracks split with medieval cue splitter. I tried it on Windows XP and it produced horrible clicks in some cases.

But mostly I use Debian and am sure shnsplt should not be regarded as a joke. Search my posts (there aren't many) or on my user name and you'll find a script which will successfully split cue+flac, and tag and rename the output files*. No clicks or other artefacts. You can also find some other tools for Linux/BSD such as split2flac which people seem to use successfully. I have split plenty (hundreds) of cue+flac, cue+ape, cue+wv etc using my simple script so I can at least say it isn't a joke and It Works For Me()

You can also check out this blog which has various other tools/methods/tips/opinions split-lossless-audio-ape-flac-wv-wav-by-cue-file
