Monkey's Audio Codec 1008 (520) 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.

Installation

Paste these three lines in the terminal:

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

Usage

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

mac "/PATH/TO/APE/FILE" "/PATH/TO/WAV/FILE" -d

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"

Note

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

sudo apt-get install shntool
