Flacon is an open source application, written in C++ and built by using the Qt libraries, that enables the users to extract individual tracks from big audio files. It has support for the following formats (as input files): WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA) and outputs the following: FLAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG or MP3.
The latest version available is Flacon 2.0.1, which comes with minor changes only, including improved translations:
- Support CUE files with several FILE tags.
- Fix: Flacon crashed if audio file was corrupt.
- Improved stability of the program.
- The program displays the duration of the tracks.
- New visual design of tracks selection.
- Program checks duration of the disk, if disk is shorter than CUE warning mark is displayed.
- Improves in the texts and messages.
