I have some audio FLAC CDs in single track format with a CUE file. I read the best way to split up the tracks is with CUETools, but I don't know which audio output (encoder?) to use. There are four options:

libFlake, libFLAC, flake & FLACCL

Can anyone explain what the difference(s) are please?

Thanks!

Check Playback/Output options in Foobar. Then, you can tweak Fading options.

In my modest opinion, if you have a (Relatively) modern CPU (Dual-Core or multi-core: Core 2 Duo/Quad, Athlon X2, Core i7, Phenom II...) you always can use -8 mode without any issue. However, in older single-core CPU -8 mode takes a lot of time (Twice the required for -5 mode, more or less), and only compress a little bit more than -5 mode.

It seems to run pretty fast in level 8 for me, I have an Athlon64 X2 @ 3.2Ghz and 4gb of ram....not the best but certainly not outdated.
