CUETools v2.2.6

A free tool for lossless audio/CUE sheet format conversion.

The goal is to make sure the album image is preserved accurately. A lossless disc image must be lossless not only in preserving contents of the audio tracks, but also in preserving gaps and CUE sheet contents. Many applications lose vital information upon conversion, and don't support all possible CUE sheet styles. For example, foobar2000 loses disc pre-gap information when converting an album image, and doesn't support gaps appended (noncompliant) CUE sheets.

The distribution comes with CUERipper, an easy-to-use tool for ripping CDs to audio files plus cue sheets, with optional native or EAC-style logging. Like CUETools, it checks the rip against the AccurateRip and CUETools databases. It also contributes to the CUETools database.

Supported formats
Supports WAV, FLAC, APE, lossyWAV, ALAC, TTA, and WavPack audio input/output. Audio must be 16-bit, 44.1kHz samples stereo (i.e. CD PCM). Supports every CUE sheet style (embedded, single file, gaps appended/prepended/left out). It is also possible to process a set of audio files in a directory without a CUE sheet, or use a RAR archive as an input without unpacking it.

Use cases
• Convert a single-file album image with CUE sheet to a file-per-track album image
• Convert a single-file album image with CUE-sheet-per-album to a single-file album image with CUE-sheet-per-track album image (feature request)
• Convert a file-per-track album image with CUE sheet to a single file album image
• Convert a file-per-track album image without a CUE sheet to a single file album image with simple CUE sheet
• Convert an album image from one lossless codec to another, preserving CUE sheet structure
• Verify a (possibly non offset-corrected) album image against AccurateRip database
• Apply offset correction to a rip made without offset correction
• Prepare an album image for burning with software, which does not handle drive write offsets, by applying offset
• Extract an album image directly from a RAR archive without unpacking it, and save it in a different format
• Fix filenames in a CUE sheet, if the files were renamed or converted to a different format.
• Compress to lossyWav, creating a lossy output + correction file.
• Convert a HDCD image to 24-bit / 20-bit / lossyWav 16-bit audio files (irreversible).
• Convert an album image with minor audio errors to one without errors, using correction files in the CUETools Database.

AccurateRip support
Since version 1.9.2, CUETools can verify album images using the AccurateRip database. ARCue and TripleFLAC were an inspiration. The unique feature of CUETools AccurateRip verification is offset detection. A rip that was made without offset correction can still be verified against the database; the offset can be found and corrected.
