Cuesheet + single mp3 = break into individual mp3s?

Post by ljun » Wed Jan 30, 2008 10:21 am

Can Max take a cuesheet with mp3 track data and break a single mp3 into individual tracks? :)

Yes, if you use the latest unstable build. Open the cuesheet using File -> Open and select the tracks you would like.

Please note that Max is not an MP3 splitter in the purest sense- the file is decoded and then re-encoded to whatever output formats you have selected, so there will be some level of quality loss if your source is lossy.

Thanks! :) Will there be support for mp3 splitting w/o re-encoding in the future? :)

No, not likely. There is a java application called pcutmp3 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/ind ... opic=35654) that does the trick nicely if you're looking for such a tool.

I've had some luck using cue splitter (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/13093/cue-splitter), which does have a GUI.

Fission is a streamlined audio editor designed to get you editing in minutes, not hours. Fission lets you copy, paste and trim audio, as well as split files, all with no quality loss! Rapidly edit mono and stereo files in MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless and AIFF formats.
I don't need a signature.

Does the new update allow for splitting w/o reencoding?

Chicken: I don't think Fission can split an mp3 USING a cuesheet.... or can it?

No, 0.8 still splits MP3s by decoding and then re-encoding.
