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.

mpccut - Musepack (MPC) stream cutter v0.9.0 (C) 2007 MDT
Built Nov 23 2007 16:27:44
Usage: mpccut [-s start_sample] [-e end_sample] <infile.mpc> <outfile.mpc>

It appears that mpccut requires sample values to cut. Unfortunately I have no idea how to convert from a cuesheet index into a sample value.

Edit: A quick test seems to prove that there are 44100 samples to a second. I can't help thinking, given that figure, that the answer should be obvious to anyone who understands what a sample is. blush.gif

Therefore, if you really want to do this, you just need to convert your cue sheet indexes into sample values - remembering that there are 75 cue sheet frames to one second - and then run multiple mpccut commands. A little effort I'll grant you, but IMHO worth it (a) for the crack (b) to maintain MPC file quality and size.
