Thanks. I have my collections to share but I'll have to read the guidelines so I'll know what I can and can't.


There's people on here with hundreds of posts, hundreds of requests who have never done anything. I'm sure you'll soon work out who they are.

Thanks again for the re-upload! :)

I have a slight problem with these flac files.
I would like to rip them to 320kbps mp3 - as I usually do with most of my music,
but since these have a cue file they are automatically already separated by tracks,
with is great, really, but when I play them on my MPC-HC software, it cannot go smoothy from one track to another
without creating a nasty click at the end of each one.....so what I would basically like to do is to be able
to rip this complete flac file as one.
Perhaps someone can recommend some other piece of software for that purpose ?

Thanks.

OK, I use foobar2000 (foobar2000.org). You likely need a flac.exe file, which may already be on your machine, but if not, foobar2000.org has enough information on the site that you can install the add-ons you need to accomplish your goal. You'll also probably need some lame397.exe file, or something similarly-named. Again, the foobar site can give exact filenames / locations.

1) Drag the .cue file into foobar. You'll see all the tracks split up one by one.
2) Right click all the tracks, Convert -> ... which will take you to converter setup. I am converting to FLAC, so I will use the FLAC option. When I convert to MP3, I prefer MP3 (LAME) 320 kbps CBR.
3) Pick a directory where you want the files to be output, and they will be converted to 320 MP3.

Also, there is Unknown Artist / Title on these, so you may want to change the artist / title name before you convert them.

Hi bro. I will re-rip them to 320 as individual tracks over the weekend. I originally (and intentionally) ripped each volume to a gapless, single-track file because these were non-stop megamixes.

That’s exactly what I would do too. I like it better for continuous mixes to avoid gap problems. You can always chop them up to individual tracks if you really want to do so. I like to transfer continuous mixes to an iPod Classic and use the clickwheel to fast forward or rewind.

Thanks for all the suggestions, but I have figured out how to get the desired results and its much simpler than I thought.
Simply remove the .cue file from the folder when you are about the rip the FLAC file and you get one complete gapless mp3 file.

Alternatively, if you want to do have individual mp3 tracks as reference points as well, you do an extra rip with the cue file attached.
