I've been ripping my CD's to CUE+FLAC so that I get image files that allow me to replicate the actual CD. This serves me as a backup and as an easy access to the "media" if I need to re-rip the CD's (in case of an improvement in the AAC/MP3 encoder, or a new format).

Some CD's were ripped using EAC, others using XLD and more recently I've been using Rip. All of them support AccurateRip, but some of my CD's weren't found in the database and for others AccurateRip wasn't used at all.

I would like to verify the FLAC files against the AccurateRip database so that I can find if the CD appeared there, and if matches my ripped image. If it doesn't, I could try again at a later time or try re-ripping with a different tool and verify the AccurateRip hash against that of my first rip.

Is there a tool I could use to verify my rips in this way?

I'm running OS X 10.6, but I have a Windows VM, if needed.

CueTools is supposed to be able to do that.



Cuetools will now process batches of flac files and verify them again accurate rip. You no longer have to create the cue file.

Sounds exactly like what I'm looking for! Do you know an equivalent tool for OS X? – lpacheco Jan 19 '11 at 1:24

I've been looking for the same thing. Seems to be a series of tools. This one shows the most promise, though it doesn't seem to work off a single WAV/FLAC and a CUE file:

I've used it very briefly tonight and am pretty happy with it, in conjunction with this little gem from

shnsplit -t "%n-%t" -f $CUEFILE $FLACFILE
~/cdrip-tools/ *.wav

Here's another -- I didn't try it as I didn't want to install Haskell

Thanks! I will try it. And it is interesting that it has a too. – lpacheco Feb 23 '15 at 19:14
