    I need to be able to copy a song from a cd that has an entire set of songs on it with no break in between the songs. Did that make sense?
    The band I am joining gave me 3 CDs of their last gig but they won't be performing all the songs on the CDs. The entire cd plays as track 1 even though there are 15 songs on each set. I would like to be able to take only the songs I need from the CDs and put them on a new CD in the order I need them. Preferable a free program downloadable from the internet. I already have windows media player and Realplayer but I don't think either of those will do what I want.
    Hope this all made sense and thanks in advance for your suggestions.:bassist:

    Completely understand.
    The analog-to-digital converter I use makes a continuous WAV file as does the ZOOM H4. For these, I use GOLDWAVE:

    Download info: http://www.goldwave.com/release.php

    It lets you chop up continuous files and do a TON of other nice things(change a song's key and keep the tempo the same!).

    Have fun learning the new tunes. Went thru the same thing in July~August but it was about 110 tunes....

    NOTE: download the free version. It works fine for me.

    That's an easy one. Audacity. It's free and it works great! That is how I would take my live sets and cut the songs up into individual tracks. I would do fade-in's and fade-out's on the tunes and they sounded great! I would also normalize the wave to bring up the volume and add a touch of EQ.

    Very cool. I will check both of those out. Thanks
  5. just go to www.tucows.com and search for MP3 SPLITTER

    rip the tracks from the CD's to your compy, then split with the program.

    Ok, checked them out and both looked cool but the audacity seemed easier for me (an old fart that needs things to be obvious) anyway got my songs for my first set all in order on one CD.:cool: I'll finish the rest up as needed. Thanks again you folks were a big help.:bassist:
