    Compare flac to accurateip database on linux?

    Hi

    I would like to compare my flacs, ripped over several years with
    different programs, CD drives, OS and computers, to the accurateip
    database.

    I have found CUEtools [1] which apparently can do this, but they only
    run on Windows.

    Is there a linux commandline tool to check existing flac to the
    accuraterip database?

    Thanks,

    Rainer

    CUEtools can definitely do this, I've used it quite a lot to check and even repair previous rips. And it compares against two databases, the accuraterip one and it's own CTDB.

    Morituri (on linux) does compare with accurip, but I don't think it can read existing FLAC files. It is written in python (but in a somewhat odd style), so reasonably easy to modify.

    According to my my notes, I used to use morituri for this on Linux, with:

    rip image verify file.cue

    as I was ripping to FLAC-per-disk plus CUE file.

    I imagine it should be able to do it directly with the FLAC file, but I don't know if the syntax is the same.


    Nowadays, I'm sitting in front of a Mac, so use XLD to both rip & verify.

    Not sure - the problem is that to look up the album, you need the whole album, in the right track order.

    rip image verify -help states "Usage: rip image verify [CUEFILE]..." so I guess the verify function really needs a cue file. I guess you could use cuetools to make a cue file for an album just for verifying purposes.

    Nowadays, I am doing the same. But my LMS is sitting on a Linux box, and
    I want to check it there.

    Could I do a check with XLD of the flac? When I rip, XLD is doing it
    perfectly.

    Cheers,

    Rainer

    Hm - I might install them on my Mac using wine and do a once off check
    if I don't find another solution.

    I am more looking for an easier solution then modify existing code.

    Turns out morituri can do the verification without any code modifications, but it needs a cue file. You can produce a cue file using shntool.

    Same here, actually. I use sshfs (via ExpanDrive) to "mount" the Linux filesystem on the Mac, then use XLD to verify.

    Bit I use a cue file there, too, as with morituri.

    Julf has noted how to produce a cue file if you don't already have one.
