cue.tools (Multiple wav or audio file into single wav) Lossless (Uncompressed) or Lossy (Compressed) - You want Lossless.
Have an older mix CD that you've ripped and it's in individual audio files? With this program you can merge them into a single file lossless preserving the quality. Now you can upload to your favorite streaming service such as Mixcloud.com or Soundcloud.com etc. I put back together my classic mix cds with this.
First download the most stable release. http://www.cuetools.net/install/CUETools_2.1.6.zip
Extract the zip file
Input: Folder Browser (select the folder path that contains the multiple audio files) such as c:\MyMixCDS\MattsSuperMix\
Output: your choice Browse, Manual or Template
Action: Encode (Script: default)
Mode: Image + CUE
Audio Output: > Lossless
Select your single lossless output file such as > wav, flac; libflac m4a
A popup window will display. Fill in the details on the left such as artist, album, date, genre etc.
On the right type in your track titles.
Copy and paste works great and it's F2 on Windows 10 to rename, then ctrl+c (copy), and ctrl+p (paste)
Rinse and repeat.
It will put your output file in C:\users\yourUSERname\music\converted\
Unless you change it to what you prefer. That's it.
Save this and now you have an image you can also use to burn a CD, but just use the output audio file to make a 320Kbps compressed lossy mp3 if you are wanting to.
Itunes works great for that.
It's FREE TOO.
Til next time,
