i use mp3directcut for that purpose. I dont know, if this really does, what it pronises, i.e. not to decode and encode the mp3...
I used mp3directcut but sometimes it would come up with warnings when I tried using the -z option in mp3 re-packer...
If you already have mp3packer, then I would suggest you use the option:Then do your editing on the -vbr output file
So now i need to just cut off the intro and MAYBE replace with another.
So MP3direct is the best option?
what bit rate do I save it in? can i keep the variable rate which they were ripped?
How does Adobe Soundbooth fit in all this?
Hi You said:There is no option to save it as a certain bitrate unless you encode it (which you want to avoid stringly).so if i do the editing i need to do, what are the steps to saving it so i dont "encode" it?
OK.Is there any place were i can learn how to use mp3 direct cut?im a first timer
i specifically want to know how to cut a long mp3 file into 5 or 10 minutes parts..? i assume there is some quick way to do it?thanks in advanced
OK. So i did the "Special --> Auto-cue and set how long you want each part to go for then when your done go "Save Split""it seems to save the file in the original way i have them.. eg. they still have a variable bit rate just looks like it split the files (as i wanted) - not sure about this encoding issue Serene mentioned...?also i put 8 sec intervals. but the audio saved in blocks of 10-11 min blocks.. is that normal?
