What is the problem with this 2 stage procedure? Too much work? CD ripping
is always a several stage procedure for me: ripping and encoding with EAC,
adding missing tags, vbr check, sorting into directory structure. One more
step for splitting the file isn't a big task since it's done automatically
with the cue sheets.
MP3 format wasn't designed for seamless playback, you have to do some extra
homework if you want it.
