BatchMP Cue Splitter
19 Jan 2016
A cue sheet is a metadata file that can describe layout of audio and data CDs. Cue sheets are stored as plain text files and commonly have a “.cue” filename extension. For example, a multi-track audio CD can be ripped to a single audio file with a cue sheet describing individual tracks position, length, as well as general information such as track titles, performer, etc. An example of such cue file would look something like:
PERFORMER "CD Performer" TITLE "CD Title" REM GENRE "Classical" REM DATE "2016" FILE "~\MYAUDIO.WAV" WAVE TRACK 01 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 TRACK 02 AUDIO INDEX 01 05:50:65 ...
Cue files can therefore be useful when dividing audio stored in a single file into multiple songs or tracks.
With BatchMP Tools it can be done with a single
bmfp cuesplit command. The command will go through files in a given directory, find relevant *.cue files and then intelligently extract individual media files.
$ bmfp cuesplit -tf mp3 16 media files to process Processing 16 tasks with pool of 2 worker processes Done processing ~\MYAUDIO.WAV, TRACK 01 in 0:00:00.46 ~\MYAUDIO.WAV, TRACK 02 in 0:00:01.18 ... Finished running 16 tasks (Succeeded: 16, Failed: 0) Total running time: 0:02:51.01
