mp3DirectCut is a small tool for editing MPEG audio directly. You can remove parts, change the volume, split files or copy regions to new files, all without the need to decompress your MP3 into PCM/WAV. This saves work, encoding time and disk space. In addition, there is no quality loss to edited files.

In v2.22 there's a 'Configuration Storage' setting under Prefs>Folders. By default it's unchecked. Does it need to be enabled for portable use?

The new "flat" design with similar monochrome icons is a step back in usability. Normal appearance, apart from grouping of toolbar buttons, can be restored under Configuration -> Layout.

The program is a good tool for trimming old MP3 encodes without incurring further quality loss. Glitches are avoided if the MP3 is upconverted to 320 kbit beforehand with MP3Packer.

I wish it also supported common simple video soundtrack formats.

AT ITS SIZE, nothing is like this! so powerful

Its similar to AviTricks Classic for Avi editing, but for audio files. Using a 3rd "tiny" app, Avi2wav, these together are 2mb worth of just stupid levels of "professionalism"

...If your only audio editor was this little guy, you could PULL A LOT OFF

Entry updated.

A few disjointed comments...
1. The version is up to 2.8
2. The portable option has been reinstated.
3. I just wanted to snip unwanted sections; this did it simply and intuitively.
I find "more advanced" editors get confusing.
4. MBAM finds a PUP in the file. Seems like a false positive to me (I added an exclusion)

Audiobook Cutter v0.7.5

  • Released on
  • Suggested by alois

Audiobook Cutter splits large MP3 audiobook files into smaller ones without re-encoding. The split points are determined automatically based on silence detection. The split files are easier to use on mobile MP3 players because of their smaller size, and their duration allows smoother navigation.

Note: As recent versions have turned into nagware, I have made a copy of the last freeware version for direct download. Please email me if you have more recent freeware versions of the software.

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. There are two versions for download: Win95/98/ME/NT and Win2K/XP/Vista. Launch AudiobookCutterFE.exe.

Stick with version 0.75. It's really free. It ain't fancy, no bells and whistles, but it works. Version 1.4 demo is crippled and completely useless. BTW when you start up v0.75 answer "NO" when it asks you to upgrade!

za-wulon on 2009-04-26 17:20

yep, new demo version is useless for freeware users, but it rather works for first 10 min of any file.
Anyway appreciating your "free" job, I can give you a free clue.

My player mutes something like first second of any tune [book] it plays, if it would be more common I'd like to see prog [when buying] equipped with silence adder.....
