Song editor

Break audio files into smaller pieces with this free program.

Medieval CUE splitter is an easy-to-use tool for breaking long audio files into smaller, songlike chunks. It has a simple layout and fast results; its only drawback is the rare CUE file format it uses.

The program's interface is nothing spectacular; in fact, it looks and feels rather sterile. However, its commands are clearly marked, and we had no difficulty navigating it or understanding its controls. This program's biggest problem is that it doesn't support every audio format. While it's compatible with MP3, WAV, and other popular formats, these files need to have a CUE text file embedded within them to work with Medieval CUE splitter. These are more commonly found in long files, such as entire concerts. Once we'd located the appropriate files, the program split the file automatically in a matter of seconds. We were left with a file that was divided equally and that felt much more like the songs on a traditional album. Medieval CUE splitter is flush with special features, though many won't appeal to casual users. However, audiophiles will love the program's ability to adjust specifications such as volume and bit rate. Even though we were disappointed it couldn't work on all audio files, this still seemed like a great program.

Medieval CUE splitter is a freeware. It comes as a compressed file and installs desktop icons without permission. We didn't like the CUE file's limitations, but we thought the program still worked well, and we recommend it.
