[ Solved - No Bug ] Loading .cue file always adds a "Track 2" entry in the comment field

Post by thibaud » Wed Sep 26, 2018 10:58 am

This is a minor annoyance and I have taken the habit of manually deleting it...
but whenever I load (drag&drop) a cue file referencing a single file, a "track 2" string gets added in the comment field.

Can you post an example cue sheet file ? (because I can't see any problems here with my own cue sheet files)

Here's a couple of cue file exhibiting the problem:

Turns out they have a COMMENT tag (I'm not the author btw) you may be allergic to...
I'd be happy to have that particular comment stripped

There is nothing wrong with the .CUE files.

The comment field comes from the FLAC file "COMMENT" metadata.

You can clear those comment tags from the FLAC files with Audio Converter:
- Add the .flac files to the list
- Clear Comment field
- 'Save Metadata'

Like I said in the original post, deleting them is what I already do...
I know the cue file are fine, I'm just wondering why is the Comment transformed into "track 2" ?

if I could choose I'd prefer EZCD to keep the comment intact.
Now if for some unknown reason you decide to replace that particular comment with "track 2" I rather have it deleted.

Are you saying that the comment field from the .cue file is going to comment metadata of track 2 ? I will check again. I did not notice such a behaviour.

I don't see it. Can you explain more or send a screenshot ?

The COMMENT field is read from the FLAC COMMENT metadata (for all tracks).

there's a couple of things going on when dropping such cue file:
1. the first entry, the original single flac file shows the second track title under it's track title column. it should not have any track name as it is a multitrack file
2. All tracks gets their comment tag filled/replaced with the following string "track 2"

Those metadatas are read from the FLAC file.

Drag n Drop the FLAC file without the CUE. You'll see.

I can confirm that it's happening to me as well:

edit: ah yes, indeed you're right, there's a "Track 2" comment in the original Flac file!

Yes ! :D

EZ CD loads the metadata from the audio file if it is not available in the cue file.
