This basic program for joining, splitting, and converting MP3s needs to support more formats to be a truly viable option. MP3 Maker has absolutely no installation; after clicking the EXE file, the main window appears. The interface is bland yet straightforward, consisting of three tabs for joining, splitting, and converting files. You can extract audio from AVI, MPEG, WAV, and MP3 files, but the program only joins and converts files to MP3. We were disappointed to discover the app can't output audio in other formats. When splitting files, you can specify the starting and ending points on the time line. You also can change bit and sample rates, edit ID tags, and encode files as VBR MP3s to save space. If you only need to work with MP3s, this app will be good enough, but many competing products support a wider range of audio and video codecs.
MP3 Maker is a powerful yet easy-to-use MP3-making application allowing you to join, split, and convert various audio files, including AVI, MPEG, and WAV (if a required audio codec is installed), to MP3 (CBR, ABR, VBR) files.
