MP3 software - joining


Most people have probably just moved on to streaming, but I still have thousands of mp3s sitting on my harddrive. In order to tidy things up a bit, I’m looking for a software that I can use to merge / join various mp3s together.

Basically I want to open a folder / drag and drop files (eg 10 files) and then the software outputs them - in the correct order - to a single file. Now these files don’t need to be un or recompressed or converted, just stuck together. Hoping there’s something out there that does this quick and without any fuss? (ideally free since it doesn’t seem to be that complicated a thing…)

I guess I could use Audacity to drop all the audiotracks onto a timeline and then save, convert…etc but that is just too much hassle for what I’m wanting to do.


Ok, seems like I found something workable. Its a freeware, so I’m good for 7 days! Lets see if it does a good job to warrant its price…


I remember doing this pretty frequently with a Winamp plugin years ago. Winamp lets you choose distinct plugins for input and output streams, and for the output stream, you could choose a plugin which outputs a playlist of many songs to a single file instead of outputting audio to speakers.


You could also try foobar2000. I’ve used it for merging mp3 rips from audiobook CDs into single-CD mp3’s with good results.


Cool! Thanks, hadn’t thought of playback software having this feature. Will check it out!


I have used Absolute MP3 Splitter/Joiner now for going on 15+ years. Works like a charm.


Spam reported.




Thanks for bumping this thread, I had looked for similar software a long time ago but didn’t find much.

Good work, spambot!
