Editors' review

This ultrasimple application performs its main task without incident, although its less-than-desirable interface, basic functionality, and slim feature set means we can only get so excited. True to its promise, MP3 Splitter quickly dices up MP3 files, either via user-selected cut points or by a certain number of identically sized segments. Unfortunately, when using the user-definable split method, you can only select one beginning and one ending cut point at a time. The interface is merely a bland, gray box that can't be resized. Though it's generally easy to use, we initially couldn't figure out how to actually split tracks; perhaps a more obvious, better-designed icon would do the trick. Apart from its one job, MP3 Splitter doesn't really do anything else and lacks extra features of any sort. The one-week trial period also is a bit too short for our tastes. Still, folks seeking a no-nonsense tool for slicing up MP3s might at least take a look at this utility.

    "Good UI, But degrades output files (trial version)."

    June 18, 2007   |   By royleeepp

    Version: MP3 Splitter 1.11

    Pros

    This is a specific tool with a simple easy to use, intuitive interface. It auto replays the audio in the immediate area that an edit is being made, which eliminates potentially hundreds of key clicks while editing.

    Cons

    I used this product to make many of my own ringtones. After saving several tracks segments I exited the application and tried to play them on an MP3 player app. They couldn't be read at all. I tried loading them back into MP3 Splitter and discovered that the playback was choppy and distorted. I reloaded the originals and they played fine. This app is so trivial I can't blame this on pilot error.

    Version: MP3 Splitter 1.11

    Pros

    Works fast.

    Cons

    After splitting mp3 files, I played them back and heard a bunch of skips. Opened files on different player and same result.

    "So much potential"

    September 01, 2005   |   By college_kid_718

    Version: MP3 Splitter 1.11

    Pros

    Like the title says, this product has so much potential. It's quick, simple, and a small download.

    Cons

    It doesn't split what you want it to split! I was trying to split tracks of an audio book so I picked the times of the sections I wanted and then let it do its thing...it ended up splitting the file in the middle of chapters. If they could get the program to function then I would consider purchasing it.

    "Only does 3 tracks"

    June 20, 2004

    Version: MP3 Splitter 1.11

    Summary

    I downloaded this to split an album, and it would only split 3 tracks. It worked in such a way that to actually try to get any more tracks out of it other than the first 3 wasn't gunna happen.
    :-(

    "Good utility just lacks some features"

    September 25, 2003

    Version: MP3 Splitter 1.11

    Summary

    This utility is extremely easy to use and that ranks well for me. There's nothing worse than an application that is too difficult to use. This one, however, does lack some features I would have liked to see but is probably one of the best available on download.com. All the others just sucked. And I mean badly sucked.

    Suggestion to the developer:

    Instead of just having a white slider bar, create a graphical representation of the audio so that the user can quickly mark silenced points and know when a new segment should begin. Also, don't limit the user to just one segment at a time. Allow for them to create many segments and do a save all feature using a common file name with a sequential numeral to make the file unique. If you add these features you'll have a very good program that makes it worth the $19.95.
