1 cutmp3 Screenshot:
cutmp3 is a small and fast command line MP3 editor. cutmp3 lets you select sections of an MP3 interactively or via a timetable and save them to separate files without quality loss.

It uses mpg123 for playback and works with VBR files and even with files bigger than 2GB.

Other features are configurable silence seeking and ID3 tag seeking, which are useful for concatenated mp3s.

Playback is realized via mpg123, so be sure to have it installed or at least have a symlink to your favorite mp3 playing program.

I recommend a symlink to mpg321 which works better!

You can mark beginning and end of a segment with 'a' and 'b' and save the segment with 's'.

Using a timetable or direct times with VBR files delivers exact(!) results at the cost of slightly lower speed. cutmp3 even works with files bigger than 2 GB!

If you want a working graphical software you can try mp3directcut,
which runs fairly well in WINE after I asked the author about a WINEd version.


make (you will need readline-devel or similar!)
