    Cutting Up MP3s

    Hi guys,

    Was just wondering if anyone knew of a good piece of (free!) software to cut MP3s into smaller segments, i.e get rid of the silences before secret tracks etc.

    Cheers,

    mp3DirectCut - http://www.rz.uni-frankfurt.de/~pesch/
    (does a good job although its not got the most intuitive GUI)

    Some other alternatives are listed here - http://www.audiotoolsdirect.com/

    Used mp3DirectCut, which although was sucessful in the end has a real pig of an interface!! Not exactly intuitive...but it worked.
