CUETools v2.1.9 Updated

Andrew Lee on 6 May 2021
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 1 May 2021
  • Suggested by freakazoid

CUETools helps ensure an album image is preserved accurately by managing lossless audio and CUE sheet format conversion. Since many applications don't keep track of preserving gaps and CUE sheet contents during conversion, or don't support all possible CUE sheet styles, CUETools preserves both with no loss in quality.

CUETools includes CUERipper, an extremely powerful yet easy-to-use CD ripping program, with features like lossless and lossy encoding options, EAC style logs, automatic metadata look-up and AccurateRip verification.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, MSVCR90.DLL, MSVCP90.DLL
Stealth: ? No. Writes some files to AppData
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Delete the file user_profiles_enabled
  3. Launch CUETools.exe

@ billon: Thanks ... and updated ;)

it's not stealth
the last stable version saves files inside AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\CLR Security Config\v2.0.50727.312\64bit\

Specular on 2016-02-13 03:09

The included CUERipper program is utterly superb and should be mentioned in the description I strongly think since it doesn't have enough attention and currently doesn't show up in results (I'll fix that in a sec).

It has an easy to use yet poweruser-friendly interface, produces EAC logs with AccurateRip information, offers Burst/Secure/Paranoid ripping modes (with Burst correctly set by default), allows for image or track rips, verify options and moe.

And one of the main features which solidified my switch: both it and the main CUETools offer a metadata search UI that displays the extended tag info such as Publisher, Barcode, etc. The only ripper I've tried which displays and tags this.

ClamWin v0.98.6 released: http://www.clamwin.com/content/view/245/1/

This release updates ClamAV scanning engine to the latest version and brings following improvements:
* Bug fixes in detection of files produced by upx, upack and mew packagers
* Other bug fixes and feature improvements

Download the latest version here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin/files/clamwin/0.98.6/

Midas on 2015-05-16 21:13

Please note that, for updating purposes, you needn't download the full 100MB+ ClamWin package.

Just go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin/files/clamwin/, find the latest version folder and download the clamwin-0.9x.x-setup-nodb.exe, which is only about 8MB -- after (Uni)extracting, you'll find all the files you need for updating in the '{app}\bin' folder...

Midas on 2021-05-05 07:53

Long overdue update, IYAM -- it took tree years for ClamWin to be updated from v0.99.4.

@Fire The Fox: Have you submitted it to V!rusTotal to substantiate you allegation?

Antiv!rus false positives are overly common and Norton isn't exempt from them. Without having tested it, I doubt a proven reliable (multi-platform) software like Ocenaudio has all of a sudden become a source of malware.

Until then, please keep your recommendations to yourself as they amount to little more than public slander.

Midas on 2019-10-14 09:41

On a side note, I had to disguise my reply because it fell foul of the site's banned word list while Fire The Fox accusation of Ocenaudio sailed through by using plurals...

@Fox: You might want to run files you test through VirusTotal before posting. I rechecked both 32 and 64 bit and both are safe.
