Flacon ~ Unix Audio File Encoder


Flacon extracts individual tracks from one big audio file containing the entire album of music and saves them as separate audio files.

To do this, it uses information from the appropriate CUE file. Besides, Flacon makes it possible to conveniently revise or specify tags both for all tracks at once or for each tag separately.

  • Supported input formats: WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA).
  • Supported out formats: FLAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG or MP3.
  • ReplayGain analysis (album-gain and track-gain modes).
  • Multi-threaded conversion process.
  • Automatic character set detection for CUE files.
  • Generation of the pertrack CUE file in the output dir.

Opus ~ Interactive Audio Codec


Opus is a lossy audio coding format developed by the Xiph.Org Foundation and standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force, designed to efficiently code speech and general audio in a single format, while remaining low-latency enough for real-time interactive communication and low-complexity enough for low-end embedded processors. Opus replaces both Vorbis and Speex for new applications, and several blind listening tests have ranked it higher-quality than any other standard audio format at any given bitrate until transparency is reached, including MP3, AAC and HE-AAC. ~ Wikipedia
