Flacon is a open source audio file encoder.

You can split a single large audio file containing the entire album into the separate audio tracks.

What is Flacon?

Flacon extracts individual tracks from one big audio file containing the entire album of music and saves them as separate audio files.

To do this, it uses information from the appropriate CUE file. Besides, Flacon makes it possible to conveniently revise or specify tags both for all tracks at once or for each tag separately.

What's New in Flacon 7.0.1

25 Apr 2021
  • Added informative error messages when the program can’t load an audio file:
    • The audio file does not exist.
    • The audio file may be corrupted or an unsupported audio format.
    • Decoder program is not installed.
    • Decoder program is installed in the settings but binary file does not exist.
  • Improved warning messages:
    • Do not show a warning if the output format does not support the quality of the input HD audio, but you have set the correct bits per sample and sample rate in the preferences.
  • Redesigned the logic of loading CUE files containing multiple files, for example, 2 sides of an LP. Now they are displayed as a single list, have a single track numbering, and allow you to change album tags in a single operation.
  • Fixed: Flacon refuses to compute ReplayGain for no good reason
  • Improved search for covers arts.
  • Added better icons for dark themes.
  • Added a few codepages for some East Asian languages.
  • Translations updated.
