Welcome Friends,

This is my little corner of the Web where I keep my bits and pieces of know-how. Some of it I've written myself, some of it I've overheard at the market, and some of it has been told to me by little voices. I hope you find something useful on these pages and pass it on to others, correct me where you think I should be corrected, and comment where you feel you need to - all that we can make Linux even better and more popular.

Monkey's Audio Codec 675 (246) installs

This codec enables you to decode audio files in the Monkey's Audio format (usually having an *.ape extension). If you have an entire album as an *.ape file paired with a cue sheet (*.cue), you can now split it into separate tracks - extracting the wave audio or converting directly to something more convenient e.g. FLAC.


Paste these three lines in the terminal. This will get you mac-3.99-u4-b5.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:robert-tari/main
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mac


Here is how to convert a single *.ape file to wave:


You can extract the tracks from an *.ape album if you have a cue sheet using this:

shnsplit -f /PATH/TO/CUE/FILE" "/PATH/TO/APE/FILE" -d "/PATH/TO/OUTPUT/FOLDER" -O always -t "%n. %p - %t"


If you want to use shnsplit, you need the shntool package:

sudo apt-get install shntool
