Power MP3 Cutter Joiner

Simple MP3 Splitter

Power MP3 Cutter Joiner is yet another MP3 splitter that we intend to test. The name suggests that the program has powerful features. Well, let’s try it.

The setup is OK. It doesn’t ask if we want to create a Start menu entry and desktop icon (it creates them silently), but neither we expect that much. At least it doesn’t create quick start entries automatically.

When starting, the program informs us that the trial version allows converting only 19 files. Well, converting means that Power MP3 Cutter Joiner re-encodes our files when splitting. This leads to quality losses and is slower than direct MP3 splitting.

We choose to continue with the trial, and the program opens its main window:

We see an empty list. Obviously, we should click "+" on the toolbar to add files for splitting.

The "Open" dialog is pretty conventional. We notice that the program supports WAV, MP3, WMA, and OGG files. We open our MP3 album.

Our file is added to the list.

We notice the "Start time", "End time", and "Current time" bars on the right. By changing start/end time we can select a part of our file, but how to add it to the split list?

Inspecting the help confirms our suspicion: the program can extract only one part of MP3 file a time. So, we select a random part and extract it just for testing. Searching and extracting songs would take too much time.

Summary:
