Convenient Windows mp3 splitter
December 9, 2005 7:31 PM   Subscribe

Desperately Wanted: a Windows mp3 file splitter designed for usability, not mere functionality. I'm looking for particular features:

--) a "Just Do it, Dammit"-style shell extension (right-click on the mp3 file, splits created immediately according to previously-set options)

--) file naming options

--) ID3 preserve/alter option

--) drag-drop UI

--) works with VBR files

The following applets have already been weighed in the scales and found wanting: mp3split, Mp3 Splitter, Mp3 TrackMaker, Mp3Cutter

Have you tried Audacity? I'm not sure that it meets all of your needs, but it's pretty darn good. And free.

These are simple. I don't know if they fit all your requirements but I have been happy using mp3trim and mp3DirectCut.

Thanks for the suggs.

I should have been more clear.

My intent is to right-click on, say, an hour-long mp3 file and choose "Split" and have the software automatically create an array of, say, 5-minute mp3lets.

Sigh. I don't wish to fiddle with "settings" and "configurations" and other such wonders of the modern age every time I want to split an mp3 file.

This promises something like what you're after and it's inexpensive. It allows the Explorer context menu intergration you're after (the right click :).

Whats the intended purpose, if you don't mind my asking?
