Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

I use SoundForge, and I've used Nero Wave Editor. I'm on a PC, can't say whether you could use either.

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

I was led to believe that Audacity would do this. I am trying to open the file but it says it cant open the file. It has no problem opening MP3 files, but when I try to open a flac... or even a wav file I get an error and it says it cant open that type of file

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

'Import' to an Audacity project, rather than 'Open' ....?

I'm not at the machine where I have it installed, so can't look at the menu just now..... later

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

I tried that. I tried just importing audio and i got an error telling me to try to import in raw mode. So I did that and I got nothing... no error no nothing. Just didn't do anything

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

Audacity started supporting flac files with the 1.3.x beta builds (if i remember well). So, do you have the beta or the stable release?

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

well that worked like a charm. Now all I need to do is learn how to split the file into multiple tracks. Any help there?

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

You're on a MAC and i have no idea about MACs, but in Windows I select a part of the concert then I go to Tracks then at Ad Label At Selection (or ctrl+b, but i don't think you have this on your keyboard from what i know about MACs). So you do with all your parts.
After you finished labeling -> File -> Export Multiple -> select your options -> ok

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

be sure to split on sector boundaries.. else have your FLACer do it when you encode the tracks.

Re: cutting 1 long track down to multiple tracks

Here's a pretty old tutorial but I think the basics still obtain.
