A classical CD Box containing 50 cds.
I am trying to convert from APE image into tracks in FLAC.
Each CD has a cue and a ape image.
The information in the cue files are rather limited, only track title and artist is mentioned which is actually the composer in most but not all instances.
When I run CUETools in batch mode, it fills the tags from various sources, how can I force CUETools to select the same tag source each time?

Some of the CDs has one Tag source instance and some up to five different tag source instances; I guess CUETools select the first available...but that way I end up having a mix of information that is neither completly wrong or right...just a mess ...

I can of course do it manually for each CD but that seems cumbersome ;-)

CUETools really doesn't have a way to force the same metadata source each time in batch modes. You can limit what is retrieved however.

CUETools Advanced Settings: Advanced tab under 'CTDB' you can set 'Metadata search' to 'Fast'. This will limit results to the TOC of the CD.

In v2.1.4 (on the main GUI) you can deselect either 'MusicBrainz/Discogs' or 'Freedb' in the Mode section. The option to deselect one or the other appears to have been removed from v2.1.5.
