Editorial review

MP3SPLT is a utility that allows you to cut (split/crop) MP3 and OGG files by selecting a start and end time, without loss because it does not decompress the file to recompress it. This can be done manually, using CDDB info, or using a CUE file. It supports automatic silent trimming as well as ID3v1 & ID3v2 tag. Mp3Splt-gtk is a GTK2 GUI (graphical user interface) that uses libmp3splt, a command-line utility that splits MP3 and OGG files selecting a begin and an end time position, without decoding. It's very useful to split large mp3/ogg to make smaller files or to split entire albums to obtain original tracks. If you want to split an album, you can select split points and filenames manually or you can get them automatically from CDDB (internet or a local file) or from cue files. Supports also automatic silence split, that can be used also to adjust cddb/cue splitpoints. Trimming using silence detection is also available. You can extract tracks from Mp3Wrap or AlbumWrap files in a few seconds. For mp3 files, both ID3v1 & ID3v2 tags are supported.
