Where to get cuetools and afconvert?
Authored by: jyncroft on Mar 15, '07 07:00:11AM

When I try getting cue tools from SourceForge, I get redirected to which doesn't have any code. Looking at cuetools on SF in another way shows that they made the transition to this other server back in 2004. Is the code available on SF current enough to use?

I have Xcode installed but afconvert does not show in Terminal. I see afconvert files in /Developer/Examples/CoreAudio/Services/AudioFileTools/ - do I need to build AudioFileTools.xcodeproj?

Thanks, Jennifer

To build afconvert, search for "afconvert" using OS X's serach utility. Hit "Show All". Hit the little information icon near afconvert.cpp. It should say that this is in the directory /Developer/Examples/CoreAudio/Services/AudioFileTools. Use the Finder to go to that directory, then double click on the build file AudioFileTools.xcodeproj. This will bring up the Xcode application. Highlight afconvert.cpp and hit "Build". This should build the executable afconvert in the directory /Developer/Examples/CoreAudio/Services/AudioFileTools/build/Development-Panther. Finally, do something like

sudo ln -s /Developer/Examples/CoreAudio/Services/AudioFileTools/build/Development-Panther/afconvert /usr/local/bin/afconvert
to make a symbolic link to the executable that your shell will see.
