Can I modify a CUE file to only burn some tracks?

Recommended Posts

I have a CD with 31 tracks, about 9 of which are short verbal explanations. I'd like to burn copies with the explanations removed. My first experiment failed. I just deleted, e.g., track 9 if it was a narrative, etc. and renumbered all the tracks. The narratives wound up at the end of the previous track.

Most of my CUE files have a line (including the disc I'm working on here):

- - - -

I have one CUE file that has for each track:


The first track of that CD's CUE rip has this:

TITLE "K124 in G major"
ISRC 0?4002300000
INDEX 00 00:00:00
INDEX 01 00:00:33

However, that track is 2:13 long, which confuses me. I don't understand the function of the INDEX's.

Is there a way I can modify the CUE file to just include, say, tracks 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 14, etc.?

I tried a piece of freeware software that lets you edit CUE files; I forget what it was called.  However, it failed to do the trick.  So, I don't know if it really is possible to edit existing CUE files or not.
