"Program freezes, programmer offers ZERO support!"

October 13, 2014

 |  Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.7.0.25

Pros

works well for the first mp3 you want to split

Cons

freezes every time you try to split a second mp3 (win7). to do this, you have to restart the program, but of course you've lost all your settings, so everything needs to be reconfigured. I contacted the programmer several times via e-mail, but he/she chose not to reply. There's no way in hell I'd give them a cent, so I've uninstalled the program. I think I'll spend money on software whose programmer offers support, and cares about improving his software!

Summary

Don't waste your time- download a different program

"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.

Easy to use, smooth execution, and stable, great software.

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.

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.

"Super easy to use, wish it wasn't just a trial!"

January 07, 2011  |  By susie-sunshine

 |  Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.7.0.24

Pros

Simple install, intuitive to use, concise simple Help Tutorial. Plenty of shortcuts. Allows u to listen to file right in the app at where ever you tell it to start at normal, fast, or slow speed. Includes automatic track detector.

Cons

Very minor but to enter start/end times, you have to type-over all hhh:mm:ss:sss values; backspace takes u to beginning of field. U can't multi-select all files in splitlist and give them all the same album name without overwriting all track titles.

Summary

This is the 2nd mp3 splitter I've downloaded, and I like it much more than the 1st. I had downloaded a live CD but it wasn't split into tracks so I used this app to split the MP3 into 12 files. It installed correctly in the x86 Programs folder with the option to install elsewhere. You can split MP3 or WAVs based on specific start/end times, evenly into parts, or it can automatically detect splits. It has an option to join files but I didn't try it out yet. I tried the automatic detector on my live MP3 and it only detected 5 tracks instead of 12 probably because of the clapping between songs.

I like the customizable options like file naming conventions. You can use the mouse to pick the start/end in a graph or type the times into fields. I opened to Help to get an idea of I was supposed to do, quickly found info on splitting, read the 4 short steps and was off and running. There are plenty of shortcuts, (CTRL+ E=edit track info; Ins=Add to SplitList) and anytime i wasn't sure what a field/button/tab was for I found simple, clear expl. in the Help.

The "cons" I listed are trivial because I really haven't found any major problems. There are easy to figure out workarounds to my "cons". I did find it kind of annoying that once I'd already identified all the tracks, I couldn't multi-select them and update their album name on all of them in the properties. I had to edit each track's one at a time before splitting the MP3. The only other option is to "Set ID3 TAG on all sections" which updates all tracks with the same title, album, artist, etc.

Overall it's a great program but I don't think I'm going to pay the $20 to buy it because I don't have a great enough need for the service.

"Does what it is supposed to"

March 10, 2010  |  By bjosephs

 |  Version: Direct WAV MP3 Splitter 2.6

Pros

Clean and easy to use.

Cons

I use this mainly for lectures. When automatically splitting a file into parts, it would be nice if it would automatically split at the nearest pause (between the words) without having to use the pause detection for the whole file.

Summary

Certainly worth $15 registration if you need such a program
