How about splitting?
Authored by: jjgb on Feb 12, '04 04:00:44PM

What I would really like is some way of splitting a long mp3 into several tracks. Does anyone know how to do this? So far I've only found PC programs that do it... so it's a no go.

You can split an MP3 track using any number of programs. The first to spring to mind is QuickTime Pro. Open the long MP3, select only the area you want, copy, paste it in a new player and save it. Repeat for all "segments".

Just about any audio editing app will do this. A few suggestions for you:

Audacity
Peak LE
Spark ME
Garageband
I bet iMovie might work also.

Ah, but those all involve decompressing the MP3 and then recompressing it after editing, which is slow and loses quality.

The only app I've seen which lets you edit MP3s without decompressing them is MP3 Trimmer, but I've never used it myself.

If all you want to do is split a large mp3 into segments of fixed size (say, 2 minutes), try Xmp3split.
