How can I get cuetools 2.1.4 to write out the individual disc folders with the individual tracks in them for a multi-cd album under the same album folder? EG: Pink Floyd's The piper at the gates of dawn album has three disc's with their individual .cue files in each of their own disc folders. I've tried to edit the template for this function but I've not made any progress. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

File tags and the CUE file are important too if you're trying to do this as a batch process (controlled by other settings). The Artist, Album and Date (and anything else used to name the folder in your template) has to match for all discs to be grouped in the same output folder. If doing the discs one at a time, when 'Select the best match' window appears, you again need to watch that any field used in your template matches for each disc and edit as necessary.

For the output CUE file, you can use [' ('%unique%')'] or $ifgreater($max(%discnumber%,%totaldiscs%),1, '('Disc %discnumber%')',) in the CUE portion of the template. For the latter to work, the required tags need to be in the Input File tags or CUE file for batch modes or make sure the fields are filled when the 'Select the best match' window appears in manual.

Also, do you want track numbering to remain the same or include the disc number: 101, 102, ..., 201, 202, ..., 301, ... ? You would need to change the Track Name Format for that.

Alright thanks Korth! It seems a little complicated but I'll see if I can get the cue files and tags to match the album that I'm putting in one folder.

Doesn't have to be complicated, I just don't have enough info to be specific. Why not just use Input: Folder Browser and do the discs one by one?

Use $ifgreater($max(%discnumber%,%totaldiscs%),1,%discnumber%.,)%tracknumber%.%title% or %tracknumber%.%title%[' ('%unique%')'] for Track Name Format to avoid overwriting tracks for CD1 & 2.
