Hello all. I'm new to these forums and to audio processing as well.

Here's my problem: I have a few soundtracks in APE format, and I would like to know how I can decompress them in different files. All I get when I decompress is one big file with all the songs, which I'd like to make into separate files.

I've noticed they usually come with a .cue file as well, but whenever I try to run it through Nero, I get nothing.

So how do I do it?

Bumping so quickly is bad etiquette here. wink.gif

You don't say what kind of separate files. I'll assume APE

1. Open the CUE with notepad. If the file extension isn't ''.ape'', make it so (exa: FILE "Whatever.ape" WAVE)

2. Get foobar2000 and add foo_input_monkey.dll to the components directory.

3. Open foobar2000, go to ''Preferences -> Tools -> Converter'' ,
3a. In ''Output File Names'' add your prefered file naming convention (exa: %tracknumber% - %title%)
3b. In the ''Encoding Presets'' area click ''Add New''
. . . Encoder = Custom
. . . Encoder = Your path to MAC.exe (exa: C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe)
. . . Extension = ape
. . . Parameters = %s %d -c2000
. . . Format Is = Lossless
. . . Encoder Name = MAC (ape)
. . . Bitrate =
. . . Settings = Normal

4. Drag CUE into foobar2000 playlist

5. Select all files , right click , select ''Convert -> Convert to... (OR: Convert to Same Directory)
In the converter setup window , select ''MAC'' , click OK , (then select destination if you didn't use ^...Same...^)
