Howto split one audio file using shntool and the cue file


If you wanna know how to split ONE SINGLE LONG AUDIO FILE into different tracks on linux here is how

cuebreakpoints album.cue | shnsplit -o flac one-big-flac.flac

this will give files named "split-track01.flac" "split-track02.flac" ...

In Arch install:
shntool
#pacman -S shntool

There is a frontend for it: QShnToolkit

To do this with APE files you may need: MAC Port (Arch)
You will have to have the flac and ape codecs installed.

To rename the files use the cuetags from the cuetools package:
Install
#pacman -S cuetools
and use:
cuetag sample.cue split-track*.flac

Another option is to install flacon:
packer -S flacon
It will split and rename in one go.

If you have k3b installed you can use the k3b to separate the tracks… super fast and all the song info is saved as well.
1. Select .cue for burning
2. Menu bar; Project ; Convert Tracks; Choose Settings; Done
