Joing MP3 files and Create a cue for resplitting
Hi Friends,

I am new to this wonderful forum and I learnt a lot about audio formats from this site. Now I have a question for you my friends.

I am working on a multimedia project wherein I have to create a single mp3 from many tracks. However, sometimes I need to re-split the single mp3 file into individual tracks. I know it's possible using a cue sheet. But how do I create a cue file for a single mp3 file. I also found medieval cue splitter which will help me split the files but I need to create a cue file in the first place.  How do I join those tracks into a single mp3 file and also create a cue for splitting it in the future?

Thanks for your time!

Medievel Cue Splitter is bad, with format-breaking methods of splitting some formats at least, probably not much better for MP3.

Some things off the top of my head and a very quick search. This can split and join:
http://mpesch3.de1.cc/mp3dc.html
These can split and might be able to join too:
http://code.google.com/p/pcutmp3/
http://mp3splt.sourceforge.net/mp3splt_pag...cumentation.php

As for how to create a cuesheet, you can edit it manually in a text editor, using syntax that is described at various locations online, or you can use an application that lets you choose times and will write a cuesheet for you.

We have many past threads on all of these subject here, so again, searching would be a good idea.

Thanks for the info. I achieved what I wanted.

open Notepad, copy and paste the blue text, save as MP3Merge.bat on the folder with mp3 files, double click on the file batch, done!
mp3val.exe is recommended, extract the exe from the zip and save on c:\windows

@echo off
if not exist *.mp3 goto end
echo Merging . . .
