I've tried Googling but can only find guides for the other way around.

I have a few flac files from an album, all properly tagged. I'd like to make them into a single flac file with a cuesheet automatically (ie not pasting into Audacity and making the Cue myself).

Is this possible?

Cuetools should let you do this - You can select the whole folder the files are in, and select "Embedded" for mode (embedded refers to album art, not the flac file. Select image+cue for a seperate album art image) and "Encode" For action. Select flac for filetype and libflake for the encoder

enter image description here

This will pop up a window that will have several sets of data for the cue sheet - the first one is based off your data, the others off freedb and other sites.

This should give you a single flac file with a cue file.

Thanks, I already have CueTools, so I don't know why I didn't try poking around in there first. Is it common to use an embedded cuesheet? Is there not better support for having a separate one? –  Rory Jun 3 '12 at 13:10
    
embedded dosen't refer to the cue sheet, it refers to album art –  Journeyman Geek Jun 3 '12 at 13:39

Use shntool, a multipurpose, multiformat command-line tool for manipulating lossless audio files.

shntool join *.flac -o flac
shntool cue *.flac > joined.cue

Although note that this will include joined.flac in your cue file, which you probably do not want. –  mattdm Nov 17 '13 at 18:55

Nope. According to the CueTools Wiki page "embedded" refers to the cue sheet. You have the option to embed it into the flac file, to create two separate flac+cue files, or to create different flacs for each track in the cue. (Though I'm unaware of a software player which actually supports embedded cue sheets, you may know of one.)

Max convertor supports embedded cue sheets. It can convert FLAC (and other formats) to Apple Lossless and import files to iTunes. –  Alexey Mahotkin Mar 10 '13 at 18:22

Have a look at Foobar2000 it can create single file with embedded cue sheet and can also embed art work and can play the resulting file as well http://www.foobar2000.org/

Welcome to Super User! Generally we like answers on the site to be able to stand on their own - Links are great, but if that link ever breaks the answer should have enough information to still be helpful. Please consider editing your answer to include more detail. See the FAQ for more info. –  slm May 3 '13 at 12:54
