Convert monkey audio (.ape) to FLAC?

Is there any Linux utility that can convert .ape files to FLAC? Possibly split tracks to separate .flac files? I've been googling, but to no success.

Thanks guys,
Karlo.

You should be able to do it with mac, which is in the aur.

I just found a guide for splitting, converting and preserving tags: http://tinyurl.com/2hkwgv
All packages needer are in the AUR.

audio-convert in community

also k3bmonkeyaudioplugin in aur if you use k3b or I like pacpl also in aur

You can use cue sheets to split lossless.

Very new versions of FFmpeg can convert from Monkey Audio to FLAC. It can also split files, but it's a bit of a chore.

A method I used with success:
http://gimpel.gi.funpic.de/wiki/index.p … g_on_Linux

It splits to wavs that you can encode with audio-convert or similar.

audio-convert *.wav

Just say yes

Re: Convert monkey audio (.ape) to FLAC?

I've found a better way to do it: with the almighty k3b.

- Install k3bmonkeyaudioplugin from AUR (hope soon goes into community)
- Open k3b and select New Audio CD Project
- Select the .cue file
- Press the blue arrow and convert it to whatever you want

To those who want a easy solution to convert ape to wav or other format,
I find out ffmpeg provide a very simple solution,

ffmpeg -i foo.ape foo.wav

this code will do the job.

Re: Convert monkey audio (.ape) to FLAC?

The regular vlc from the repos is also fine.
foobar2000 too (it's working great under wine).
Or... {add-your-own-solution-here}

Re: Convert monkey audio (.ape) to FLAC?

For splitting i use:

cuebreakpoints foo.cue | shnsplit -o flac foo.ape

It's a bug planet!

Re: Convert monkey audio (.ape) to FLAC?

I found a very clean CLI solution:

http://gimpel.funpic.de/files/cueape.sh

Usage: cueape.sh [input ape file] [input cue file] [parameters]
Parameters can be: -m for mp3 encoding or -o for ogg encoding

I changed -q from 6 to 5 for ogg in the script for transparent and low-sized files.
