This action use XLD and .cue files to extract tracks from FLAC files. The following panel will be displayed:

Main Panel

The help button displays context sensitive help for the selected row. To display this document, hold down the Option key while clicking on the help button.

You must specify a Source folder. You can manually enter it or double click on the row's Name column or use its context menu to select a folder.

You must select an XLD preset or profile which defines the produced file format. If you have not created any profiles the XLD profile row will not be displayed. If you enable the XLD profile row, XLD preset will be disabled. You either use a preset or a profile.

The remainder of the rows are items which can potentially be specified in a cue file. Enabling a row means that an item should be imported if possible. Before applying any of the import items, the source file's metadata will be copied to each produced track file. Records in a cue file can be placed so that they apply to all tracks or only a single track. If not otherwise mentioned, both placements are supported. Any record which has an empty value is ignored. The following records are processed for optional importing:

Specifies a UPC/EAN code and is stored in a Barcode UDTI or custom field.

Specifies an ISRC code and is saved to the ISRC field.

A PERFORMER record defines ... well performers. This row only processes PERFORMER records which are specified per file (ie. not associated with any one track). You can choose to copy the metadata to the Artist, Album Artist or both fields. Note that these copied values can be overwritten by the presence of a PERFORMER record associated with a track.

Handled exactly the same as the PERFORMER (per FILE) row, with the exception that this setting is processed last; can overwrite a value already copied and only every write the fields for a single track.

Is saved to the Composer field.

When a TITLE record is found and is not associated with a particular track, it will be copied to the Album field.

When a TITLE record is found and is associated with a particular track, it will be copied to the TITLE field.

You can elect to Save your settings and exit. If you use the Split button, settings will be saved and execution proceeds as follows for each cue file found in the source folder:

A log file is written to ~/Documents/Yate/SplitXLD.log. When the action terminates you are given the option of viewing the file. Note that the log file is overwritten each time the action is run.
