Hi.
I would like to see MPC supporting .CUE files. I have some albums in single file that contains all the CD tracks (some in .WAV format, some in .MP3 and some in .APE), and a .CUE file with the track names and the indexes.

It's very simple to implement it, so I hope it'll be available soon.

Sample of a .CUE file

PERFORMER "VA"
TITLE "This is the Album Title"
FILE "My Filename.mp3" MP3
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "Track 1 name"
PERFORMER "Track one performer"
INDEX 01 00:00:00
TRACK 02 AUDIO
TITLE "Some other track"
PERFORMER "Another artist"
INDEX 01 03:53:37
TRACK 03 AUDIO
TITLE "Another track"
PERFORMER "Another performer"
INDEX 01 07:38:37

    What would you have MPC do with a cue sheet?

    There are two cue sheet reader plugins for Winamp. One of them creates a separate window for the cuesheet, leaving your single-file album/mix as a single file in the main playlist window. The other plugin creates pseudo-entries in the main playlist for each item from the cuesheet.

    I've always liked the former, but clearly some people prefer the latter.
