WAV Tools joins WAV files to create a CD image, optionally compensating for your burner's write offset, and adding a pre-gap (since EAC doesn't copy the pre-gap when ripping in track mode). This is useful when you have a cuesheet for a single WAV file but have each track stored in separate WAV files. It can also be used to offset a single WAV (CD image) without doing any joining. Input files must be 44100 Hz, 16 bit, stereo.

"Write Offset" is the same value you would use in EAC's "Write samples offset" setting. For most CDs you will not have to add a pre-gap, but if the cuesheet has an INDEX 00 for the first track, you can add a pre-gap using the timestamp of INDEX 01.

Download: WAV Tools (.NET v1.1 Framework required, available at Windows Update. C# source code is included in the download.)

EDIT: Updated description and screenshot.

ACDIR --help

ACDIR --help-commands

ACDIR --help-variables

Also, take a look at the included batch files for examples.

nyaochi is aware that he needs more documentation, and I have voluntered to help, but it is only version 0.9 at the moment.

I use (off the top of my head):

ACDIR --output "$~A\$~T\$n - $~t.mp3" --pipe "LAME -V5 --athaa-sensitivity 1 --tt $#t --ta $#a --tl $#T --tn $#n - $#o" CDImage.cue

... which will split CDImage.wav using CDImage.cue and create tagged track MP3s of the format <artist>\<album>\<tracknumber> - <title>.mp3

Edit: edited my command line ($t -> $~t)
