A Guide To CUE Splitters
A CUE Splitter is one of the most useful audio recording tools for anyone serious about Medieval Music. The term "CUE" stands for "Computer Audio". And a CUE Splitter is a splitter, a device that splits a track (or audio track) into smaller files (listen to my music fans - it's a lot more difficult to understand than it sounds). CUE Splitter is actually free software; a very popular one at that. So far, this article hasn't touched on the various benefits of using a CUE Splitter, so I'll leave you to read some CUE Splitter reviews and related information on the web.
For those of you who don't know, a CUE Splitter splits large tracks (and sometimes even movies) into their constituent files, allowing for superior file sharing if one has the right equipment. CUE Splitter can be used to make copies of any type of media - flac files, wma, apa, and any other format that can be burnt into my files, or recorded onto a DVD or other media. Additionally, the use of a CUE Splitter allows for easier storage and archive, as well as duplication of these media files on hand, for future usage.
There are two different types of CUE Splitters available, the Stand Alone CUE Splitter, which are best suited for smaller recording projects, and the CUEux, which come with a cross-over option. The Stand-alone CUE Splitter splits a single large audio file into smaller files, usually less than forty min. The cross-over option is for recording a collection of tracks (with each track played on its own channel), with each track played on a separate channel. When using a CUE Splitter to create a collection of single big audio files, there's no need for any other hardware - plugging them into your personal computer will do the trick.
