FLAC CD Backup Manager

Project description


Flackup manages audio CD backups as single FLAC files with embedded cue sheets, adds metadata from MusicBrainz and converts albums to individual Ogg Vorbis tracks.


  • FLAC files with embedded cue sheets
  • flac, oggenc and vorbisgain
  • Python 3.8


Using pip (or pipx):

pip install flackup


You can get help for all commands with the --help parameter.

To tag a number of FLAC files with embedded cue sheets:

flackup tag *.flac

If there are multiple releases matching the cue sheet (and there probably will be), Flackup will show you some release details, including the barcode, and let you pick the correct one.

To add cover images to a number of tagged FLAC files:

flackup cover *.flac

To convert a number of tagged FLAC files to Ogg Vorbis in the $HOME/Music directory:

flackup convert -d $HOME/Music *.flac
