Windows 7: How to split 1 mp3 file to 2?

How to split 1 mp3 file to 2?

I have an mp3 file that, although it says 1 file, is comprised of 2 individual meditation tapes. These individuals are separate (FLAC) files on the CD's shipped but for whatever reason they're combined on the download into 1 mp3.

Although I can copy a FLAC file to the drive and convert it to ALAC (or mp3) for the iPod the process would be much easier to separate the 1 mp3 file into its 2 component tracks. Is there a relatively easy way to do what I want?

Hi Mark,

Get hold of Audacity. It will easily do what you want with that mp3.

Thanks, I did as you suggested but the 'split line' between the 2 tracks is not perfectly clear so I posted a confirming ? to their forum.

Thanks again,

Mark

Sounds like you're on the right track (so to speak .

A couple of tips that should help:

Copy the mp3 file so you have two files to work with ie. name them track 1 and track 2

For track 1 locate your cursor in the track just past where it ends and delete everything to the right of that point.
Zoom in around the end of the track to find and cut the end point more precisely
Use fade out over the last few seconds of the track
Save those changes to track 1

For track 2 locate your cursor in the track just before where it starts and delete everything to the left of that point.
Follow along the same line as above for the remain steps to create a good track 2

Hope that makes sense.

I couldn't have asked for a more 'user friendly' direction.

Thanks!
