I ripped my vinyl to FLAC with a cue sheet but would now like a good way to convert it to individual MP3s. I know I can use shnsplit and manually enter ID3 data into each file after converting to MP3, but I am not sure how to automate it. I keep seeing loads of posts about "cuetag.sh" but it is not included in cuetools in Gentoo. How can I script this? I am thinking of the following.
Code:

#!/bin/bash

for file in ./*.flac ; do
  <shnsplit to flacs>
  <ffmpeg to 320k mp3>
  <somehow read cue to enter ID3 data>
done

How could I accomplish this?

*UPDATE*

The solution was to emerge a small GUI program called "Flacon". It is great!

I don't need WINE, I have VirtualBox and systems dating back to MSDOS 6.22 on this system. Still, I would like an option to solve this with Linux. I can script multiple programs with bash if needed.

media-sound/split2flac might be what you want.

That is no good. I can already split and encode to MP3. I need to get cue sheet data into the ID3 tags now.

What's wrong with cuetag.sh? Is the version in the source tarball not working?

I just checked and split2flac does exactly that. If it doesn't for you, perhaps there is something wrong with the format of your cue sheets.

Why ancient MP3 (curious). AAC-FDK and Opus are the choices of 2017.

Jag, I am in your boat. I love FLAC and OGG, but most cars only play MP3, so I am stuck. I keep the FLAC original rips on a BTRFS RAID array and use the MP3s in my F150.

The cuetag.sh file does not appear to be installed in Gentoo when I install the package (cuetools?). I am at my gaming rig which is Windows 7 so I cannot check right now.

Finally, are you saying split2flac takes a single FLAC file, splits it to multiple 320k MP3s, and then encodes ID3 data into the MP3s? Not what I read about it, but if so please provide me a link to this information.

Writing ID3 tags is one of the rare steps I don't have scripted, because I often have to adjust some of them by hand. So I use EasyTag to save some time anyway.

Concerning cuetools, perhaps you need to use "cuetag", instead of "cuetag.sh" ?

The problem is that I cannot find cueta* on the system. No cuetag binary, no cuetag.sh shell script. That's why I posted here.

https://github.com/ftrvxmtrx/split2flac

After all, if you don't mind scripting, then get cuetag.sh from https://github.com/svend/cuetools/blob/master/src/tools/cuetag.sh and adjust it to your needs (if necessary)

Yes, that's what I am saying it does and that's what it actually does. I even tried it out before I wrote my answer to make sure I don't claim anything that is not true.

As I said, I tried it out and it works. But it's not my responsibility to prove that to you.

So either read the script directly at the github page or just emerge it and try it out. In the time it has taken you to write that post you could have emerged it and tried it on one of your flac files.

I don't install software willy-nilly. I prefer a clean system with only what I need on it. I'll try it out soon.

I checked out split2flac and it looked great, but I kept getting errors with shnsplit when using it. I then stumbled into "flacon". It is PERFECT! Clean GUI, minimalist, does ID3 tags, cover art, the whole nine yards. I highly recommend it to anybody looking to split large audio files up.
