Editors' review

Despite a rather limited scope, this application makes splitting audio files an intuitive process. True to its word, Direct WAV MP3 Splitter can dice WAVs or MP3s into any number of segments, though it only can save the files in the latter format. The program's main window is intuitive enough to use, though it's no beauty. To ensure you chop your tracks at the correct moments, the utility lets you play the song before selecting start and end points via a couple of quick mouse clicks. The program can easily cut off any number of fragments you need. It also can chop files into a certain number of equal parts or cut tracks by time and size. Folks who need to digitize their LPs and cassettes will appreciate the feature that automatically detects pauses between tracks. Direct WAV MP3 Splitter now comes with a 30-day demo, making it that much more attractive to anyone who routinely needs to split audio files.

    "Split MP3 files into smaller ones in under 10 seconds"

    June 01, 2012   |   By spenkopp

    Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.7.0.25

    Pros

    Speedy 1.5GB audio book file splint in 10 seconds. As a novice with type software, could easily set up file splits, Haven't tried custom splits yet. (Once you buy their Splitter, they send you a discount ooupon for the Joiner program) No buzz, click or hum.

    Cons

    None known.

    Summary

    Program does what it's supposed to do efficiently, intuitively, without drama, in excellent time

    "Hated it. I need graphical options, not twiddly hybrids"

    April 19, 2012   |   By hilarleo

    Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.7.0.25

    Pros

    Did complicated MP3 stuff I couldnt do for myself, "for free".
    Worked out of the box without tutorials.
    Speed impressive.
    Optimized for automated splitting.
    Plus more menus+stuff for fiddly MP3-type bother I'll [hopefully] never ever look at.

    Cons

    Antique part-graphic/part-numeric interface for creating user-identified split locations ... it's a stone-slow-drag. Pass.

    Summary

    Maybe I should stay with Macs for A/V.
    But sometimes I need something similar for Windows.
    So my expectations could be unreasonable for Windows circa 2012.
    This program seems to be 10-year-old legacy swag.
    Functional enuf on the inside - but outside, a cipher.
    Unless you're content to do automated splitting full-time,
    the interface is sub-par.

    June 01, 2011   |   By JUANDELOX

    Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.7.0.25

    Pros

    It's simple and easy to use.
    Very nice little programme.

    Cons

    None. Absoltely nothing wrong with this.

    Summary

    There's nothing I can say bad about this. I leave my radio recording for about an hour or so. Then take the hour long recording and bring it into this.. trim off the bad and I keep what I like.
    Excellent little programme.

    "Nice program, but dead in the water since version 2.6"

    February 18, 2011   |   By Alan Mintaka

    Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.7.0.25

    Pros

    Still does a fair job of splitting large MP3 files. More or less functional utility program.

    Cons

    Occasionally Pause by Detection doesn't split in right location - file split in middle of sound, actual pause was just before or after split. Works for the most part, fails often enough to be annoying. On this basis, paid version is overpriced.

    Summary

    Pros and cons spell out basic functionality of this program. Another con is that **according to the upgrade notes** this program has been dead in the water since version 2.6. The upgrade notes for 2.6, 2.7.0.24 and 2.7.0.25 have been exactly the same: "Version N features: minimum Sound Duration added to Pause Detection; ability to work with files up to 999 hours; correct read/write CUE files Artist/Album tags." In fact, Minimum Silence (not Minimum Sound Duration, which was already there) has been added since 2.6. This carelessness on the part of the developers, plus the occasional failure of Split by Pause Detection, makes shopping around for similar programs a good idea.

    Updated on Apr 25, 2011

    UPDATE 04/25/2011
    Since submitting the original review, I've determined that version 2.7.0.25 produces corrupt MP3 headers at many split locations. If I could reduce the rating to 0 stars at this point, I would.
