How to splite one big FLAC file into several smaller ones based on a .cue file

Hi,

I can't believe it is that difficult to find information on or a program to
split a big FLAC file into several smaller ones based on a .cue file

My situation:
I downloaded a FLAC file containing all tracks of a music album and the corresponding .CUE file.
I want that FLAC file to be split into smaller FLAC files; one per track.

For mp3 files I use mp3DirectCut. Does anyone know a similar program for FLAC files?

Remarks:
1) I don't want to burn the FLAC file to a CD and then rip it again. Way too much work for the simple request.
2) I know the program Medieval CUE Splitter. But since I read on their website: "Known bug: MPC engine can cause a bit of jitter at the beginning/end of tracks." I'm not eager to use it.

So: Does anyone know a program that can split big FLAC files into smaller ones WITHOUT ANY CONVERSION based on the .cue file. Like mp3DirectCut does for mp3 files?

Thanks in advance for trying to help me.

Hi Ian_Admino,
unfortunately that turns out to be "Medieval CUE Splitter" I mentioned in my question.

It seems like there's only one program out there that is capable of splitting FLAC files.
Unbelievable!

CUETools - support FLAC and CUE files.  More difficult to use than Medieval CUE Splitter though (see comments section of the simplehelp link - someone tested and posted comments)

Another program that supports splitting from CUE or CDDB.  You might have to convert to OGG first though.

That first link seems to be interesting.
(The second isn't because I said I wasn't interested in solutions that involved a conversion - The 3rd link is about Medieval CUE Splitter again)
Give me some time to try it out.
I'll keep you updated.

Hi Ian_Admino,
Thanks for CUETools. It does the job fine!
Although indeed not that intuitive to find out how the GUI works. But once you know...

Damn! It was my intention to give you an A-grade.

Ian_Admino, could you please reopen this question by pressing the <Object> button that is somewhere at the bottom? That way I can close it again, giving you an A-grade, according to my intention...
Sorry for the trouble.
