This article describes how to split audio file basing on CUE metadata.


Probably you need this bundle:

 pacman -S cuetools shntool flac wavpack mac mp3info vorbis-tools


 cuebreakpoints file.cue | shntool split file.ape


 cuebreakpoints file.cue | shntool split file.wv

it produces .wav files

Then you probably want to convert them into OGG or MP3. See Convert Any To Mp3 for example.


Use file.cue track01.mp3 track02.mp3 track03.mp3 track04.mp3

or file.cue *.mp3

to copy tags from CUE to MP3. supports FLAC, OGG and MP3 tags. is included with cuetools.
