Default Split 24bit .wav files

Until now I use EAC to split 16bit wav files.
Since harddrive space keeps getting cheaper I plan to keep the records I make from vinyl in 24bit format.
EAC leaves me with just noise in 24 bit unless I need to change a setting.
If not, does anyone know of a reliable .wav file splitter for 24bit? The platform is Windows XPPro.

Goldwave has the option, but I have not tried it.

Since foobar can handle 24bit integer WAVs (or float32) and use EAC's cue lists it should be able to split WAVs (with RIGHT_CLICK-->"Convert") with no bit changes when all processing options etc are turned off.

Thanks so far, I'll check that out.
Cue lists are made with CueListTool but I guess this doesn't matter.

My vote goes for Foobar.
Last weekend I used Foobar to convert a large wav and its cue file into 11 separate songs.
I converted it to FLAC, it's better than wav: it's also lossless, but smaller in size and stores the tags.
Grts,
Danny

I found the convert tool in Foobar but how do I tell it to use my cuesheet?

If it already is in EAC's format (a plain textfile, extension .CUE) just load it, otherwise you must reformat it to EAC format. Easiest thing might be to open an existing EAC cue file and edit it. Omit all the INDEX00 lines, INDEX01 is the starting point of the audio. This is OK for the purpose of splitting.

EDIT: I recognize CueListTool can export .cue-files, so this should be easy... no need for editing...

Default just load it

Thanks, but that's exactly what I'm struggling with: how do I load that .cue file into Foobar?
