MP3 Cutter Joiner

Simple MP3 Cutter

The next MP3 splitter tool that we have fished out has a simple name: MP3 Cutter Joiner. Let’s see what kind of program it is.

The setup process goes smoothly, but the program doesn’t allow to avoid creating Start menu entries and desktop icon. When finished, the setup offers to launch the program.

MP3 Cutter Joiner greets us with a registration reminder window. It notifies that we can convert only 15 files in the trial version.

Well, this means that the program will convert our files to WAV and then back to MP3 when splitting. This kind of behavior is known as re-encoding, and it leads to quality losses. It also slows down the process of splitting and requires additional space for temporary WAV files.

We click the button to register later. MP3 Cutter Joiner loads itself.

The window is small and looks pretty nice. Obviously we should click "Add" in the lower part of the window to add our file.

When opening our album, we notice that the program supports WAV, WMA, MP3, and OGG files.

Our file is added to the list. Now what?

We try to click the "Cut" button below, expecting to see some kind of "Add cut points" dialog, but the program silently starts converting our file. Hmm, please stop it.

A few seconds we explore menus. Nothing.

Aha, there are some clocks right above the "Cut" and "Combine" buttons. Let’s try them.

After a bit of experimenting we find out that the clock-buttons set start/end time of the part we want to extract. They are used with the track bar to the left.

But how do we set another part? We want to extract more than one.

Well, let’s ask for help. Pressing F1.

The help is there, but not much of it. Quickly we realize that there is no multiple parts splitting. We can extract only one part from our file.

Anyway, it is tiresome to look for each song without the waveform, so we didn’t care to extract songs. We simply tested the program on a random section.
