Converting FLAC with separate CUE Sheet

Post by h1tor1 » Fri Jul 06, 2012 10:37 pm

Hi
I have a FLAC file with a separate CUE sheet that I want to convert to multiple M4a files for my iPhone
When adding the FLAC to the convert files window I just get the one file with no Meta Data and opening the CUE sheet gives me a window with the album and artist name but no tracks and no way to add the FLAC

How can I add the FLAC with CUE sheet so that I can split it into multiple M4a files?

Thanks

This is the *most* frequently asked question of all.

Do not "add the FLAC to the convert files window". Use File > Open to open the cue sheet (or drag the cue sheet onto Max's icon). That's all there is to it.

I am not able to get Max to use the Cue sheet when converting a FLAC file.


I have tried dragging both into the convert window as well as the method suggested in this thread.

I have tried dragging the Cue file onto the icon which opened in a window with the Title and Artist fields filled in as well as an MCN Number. But the convert window is greyed out. I tried dragging the FLAC file onto the icon too and that file opened in the File Conversion window, but when I then clicked the 'convert' button MAX converted the file without using the cue sheet.

I'm using mountain lion 10.1 and the latest MAX 0.91

thanks

The Convert button was greyed out in the cue sheet window in Max because you did not check any tracks. Check some (there is a check all button to help with this).
