    Hi guys,
    Does anyone here know of a way to split MP3s? I have a few complete MP3 albums,and want to split them into the individual songs.But I don't want to do it by time or size,I want to see the wave form of the song and then decide to cut it off when there is no sound.

    Anyone knows of a tool which will do that? I found loads which will split based on time,size and breakpoints,but none which will do it by waveform..

    Do you do any video editing ?

    You could do it in NLE software probably Premiere , certainly in Vegas. Got NLE software ?

    I was going to suggest inexpensive sound editing program like Cooledit but I see they have recently been bought out by Adobe (cheap no more).

    I have Adobe Premiere,but haven't done any video editing with it yet.
    Will I be able to do it with that?
    Or maybe some other free program?

    I don't use Premiere myself , but I'm sure you would be able to load your files to the timeline & be able to see the wave form.

    Perform the cuts, mark each section (put in fades to silence if you wish) & then render each individual section as a seperate .mp3 , .wav whatever takes your fancy. At least that's what I can do with Vegas.

    That MP3Splitter doesn't seem to have the option of viewing the waveform and then splitting on the basis of that.

    Audacity seems to have that feature(of viewing the waveform), but I couldn't get it to split.
    But I have just tried it for a few minutes and so I must be missing something.

    Never used it

    just guessing....is it something intuitive like , with track loaded & the cursor at place you want to cut , maybe press "S" key (for split) or "C" key (for cut) on keyboard.

    Probably not but I'm sure there will be a way in there somewhere.

    Audacity
    Is that the program have released that is supposed to take Cooledits market ?

    Ah

    Using Audacity FAQ No7 tells you what you want anyway.

    You could probably edit the tracks / files with Nero, then burn the results to a CD-RW and then rip the edited tracks back off it - though it's a bit of a round about way.

    Also, are you sure that the full albums you have haven't already been split using Albumwrap - the name of the full mp3 would end _ALBW.mp3?

    Full mp3 splitting capability with waveforms for visual editing. Loads of other options as well. I've been using it for about 2 years now, and it's really the best out there.

    If you get the full version of nero 5.5 it has an mp3 editor with it, try opening the whole album and then cutting and pasting the songs into new files.
    it may take a while cus you might have to keep re-opening the full album (a time for each track). that should get ya going!!
