4 Audio Merge and Splitter Software to Edit Your Music

By | April 9, 2022

Over the last decade, the world has shifted from music downloading to music streaming. This switch makes a lot of sense.

But there are good reasons to keep downloading music, especially if you can’t have the music you’re streaming. Bandwidth concerns are another, which is why many users still download YouTube videos as MP3s.

One bonus of downloaded music is that you can edit files, such as trimming extraneous bits (annoying intros or outros) or mixing multiple songs into a personal mega-mix. If you’re interested in that, here are the best free tools for the job.

mp3DirectCut (Windows)

Supported formats: AAC, MP3.

mp3DirectCut is a small, lightweight audio editor that’s simple: you can’t do much with it, but it’s really good at what it can do. Basic operations include cutting, copying, pasting, and recording audio.

What sets this app apart from most is the fact that it directly manipulates audio files without having to decompress them first. This not only results in a faster workflow, but also preserves the original audio quality as there is no need to recompress.

Other notable features include ID3 tag editing, pause detection, batch file processing, automatic sharing of tracks by time value, and automatic filename and tag generation when splitting tracks.

Mp3Splt (Windows, Mac, Linux)

Supported Formats: FLAC, MP3, OGG.

First things first, make sure you download Mp3Splt-GTK instead of just Mp3Splt (which is a more complicated command line tool to learn than just using the GTK version of the graphical interface).

Like mp3DirectCut, Mp3Splt can work on audio files without having to decompress them first, resulting in a fast workflow and no impact on audio quality. The app is much simpler: you just select a start and end time, then export those selections as separate audio files.

If you have an entire album as a single audio file, Mp3Splt can automatically split using a CUE file that marks where each song starts and ends. Automatic splitting using pause detection is also available. Exported files can have their ID3 tags edited.

MP3 Toolkit (Windows)

Supported formats: AAC, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, and more.

MP3 Toolkit is a collection of six separate audio manipulation tools all of which are useful in several ways: Converter, Ripper, Tag Editor, Merger, Cutter, and Recorder. For this article, we are most interested in Joins and Slicers.

Merger lets you take multiple audio files, rearrange them in any order you want, and then export them as one combined audio file. Slicer lets you take a single audio file, choose a start time and end time, and then export that selection as a separate audio file.

You can download the MP3 Toolkit for free, which will be marked as Unlisted. There is no indication whether this version is feature-limiting or has a timeout.

Audacity (Windows, Mac, Linux)

Audacity is the go-to app if you’re looking for complete control over the editing process. With it, you can split a bit of audio into as many pieces as you want, or you can combine as many audio files as you want in any order.

What’s nice is that you’ll also have access to all of Audacity’s other features, including audio filters and effects that might be useful for music files that are problematic in some way. Check out these essential Audacity tips.

And the best part? Audacity’s expertise can be transferred to other endeavors, including this creative use for Audacity. After all, Audacity is a very powerful and flexible tool.
