split2flac splits one big APE/FLAC/TTA/WV/WAV audio image (or a collection of such files, recursively) with CUE sheet into FLAC/M4A/MP3/OGG_VORBIS/WAV tracks with tagging, renaming, charset conversion of cue sheet, album cover images. It also uses configuration file, so no need to pass a lot of arguments every time, only an input file. Should work in any POSIX-compliant shell.
NOTE: script is able to find cover image and cue sheet automatically (including internal ones).
create symbolic links to the same file like this:
cd /usr/bin # this is a directory where split2flac was installed ln -s split2flac split2mp3 ln -s split2flac split2ogg ln -s split2flac split2m4a ln -s split2flac split2wav
- flac (or better flake, which is much faster) to split from/into FLAC
- faac and libmp4v2 to split into M4A
- wavpack to split WV
- mac to split APE
- ttaenc to split TTA
- imagemagick to convert/resize album cover images
- iconv to convert CUE sheet from non-UTF8 charset
- enca to automatically detect charset if it's not UTF8
- lame and id3lib (or better mutagen for Unicode tags) to split into MP3
- vorbis-tools to split into OGG VORBIS
- flac for FLAC Replay Gain support
- aacgain to adjust gain in M4A
- mp3gain for MP3
- vorbisgain for OGG VORBIS gain adjustment
