    Usually I use the nifty CueSplitter app, however, I'm not a fan of Rosetta and none-UB apps, so does anyone know of a Universal Binary app which will split and mp3 based on a .cue file?

    I fixed a cue file in a text editor once, though it was all a bit trial and error and I at least had a starting to point to work with

    Speedy, can you not just email the guy and ask him kindly, placate him with chickens and persuade him to recompile into UB, or maybe give you the source?

    That reminds me, I need to email the author of SSHKeyChain if he would mind getting an UB version on his website.

    I got a huge .mp3 file and a .cue file with it, an old album I did actually download but can't find to buy anywhere.

    Is there a Windows solution for this?
    Would love to use it to actually split the big mp3 up into little ones.

    its not, but its hardly more than a google away, though true enough the guy should get some of these dmg files and host them.

    Quick update, as I'd forgot about this topic until I was presented with a new album in mp3/cue format today.

    I decided to give Cue-Splitter a go on my Intel Mac, and it just died on its arse, so I opened it up to check what was inside, and thankfully, my suspicions were confirmed, it's actually just a cocoa wrapper for a niftly little (command line) app called mp3splt, which MacPorts has in its catalogue, so it's now installed, and works great.

    $ mp3splt -c file.cue file.mp3

    Job done :D

    Does anybody know about a good program that would split mp3 files using cue sheets for mac os x? Currently I split mp3s on my windows computer using Visual MP3 Splitter, but it would be great to find a similar app for mac.
