Wav to flac, tag?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello! I just finish ripping a thousand CDs into a cocktail x-10 in wav.

It has in every folder a "id"(?) file of tag information, such as singer, album name, year, etc..

If I want to convert these into Apple lossless or FLAC, can these tagging information be included in the new files? Which software? Foobar 2000?

Many thanks for your help!

I mean when I take the hard disc out and connect to a computer, I can see folders of each CD and "id"(?) file along with each song in the folder.

It depends on your settings for ripping and if the tag was written during the manufacturing process. I use Max and every CD I've ripped has all information.

I'm not sure what software is used by the X-10 for ripping, and whether you ripped individual songs or the entire cd.

 

Usually there's a .cue file generated that contains all the album information. This .cue file can be used to re-apply the tags if you later on encode the .wav files to some other format like .flac or .m4a.

 

On linux there's a simple command line tool called cuetools that takes a .cue file as input and will apply the tags to all the files. I'm not sure what's the alternative for Windows.

Thanks!

 

I rip entire CDs, every song gas an .id3 file with the same name as the .wav song file.

 

But I cannot see the .cue file.
