Just highlight the part that you want (just like you would in any word processor by by clicking on the recorded track and dragging your mouse. It will turn grey when you highlight it.coachdan32 said:I am trying to use Audacity to split a large mp3 file up into smaller, more usable files. Does anyone have a link to a good tutorial on performing this function?
I'm not sure what you call large. I know it will handle audio files at least 8 hours long.JohnWill said:The MP3's are being decoded and then re-encoded, losing quality in the process. With a program like MP3Trim, it works on the native MP3 and doesn't go through the decode/encode step, so the quality remains constant. I see the free MP3Trim won't handle that large a file however. As long as the quality erosion isn't an issue, Audacity seems to be the answer.
mpTrim will not fit your needs as I have previously stated. See for yourself here.coachdan32 said:I tried Audacity on mp3 music files last night. There definately was a noticeable drop off on the volume level. Was anyone ever able to determine whether the free MP3Trim can handle the longer files? If not, how much is the licensed version? I assume that it doesn't have the same performance dropoff with music files, right?
