Auto split album MP3s to distinct tracks, even detecting silence, with mp3DirectCut

mp3DirectCut is a frame based editor for MPEG audio (Layers 2 and 3). You can cut, copy, paste or change the volume without re-encoding anything of the file. This makes mp3DirectCut very fast and prevents loss of audio quality.

The program enables easy navigation even on large files and gives you a visualisation of the MP3 audio data. It can handle Cue sheets allowing to split a file at cue positions. And you can also directly record and encode an MP3 from your audio input device.

Pause detection sets cues or cuts to gaps of definable length and level. The settings must be adjusted carefully because the results can be very different. The Level and the Duration sliders adjust at which audio level and gap duration thresholds a pause will be detected.

If you are extracting albw files (album wrap) try MakeItOne MP3 Album Maker, which is designed to do that, and works perfectly. If you prefer to manually cut your file, consider also using mp3extractor.
