Is there a program that can split an mp3 (and/or other music file types) into single songs, using an itunes playlist file (and/or other music playlist files) to determine beginning and ending of a song, all by itself?

Is it possible that maybe iTunes itself can do it? I heard of a feature that can split songs, but is it possible to do it like I suggested above?

I know cuetools does this with a cue file, but I have no idea for format the itunes playlist file is – Journeyman Geek Dec 5 '12 at 1:21
@JourneymanGeek .cue-files are perfect. But cuetools seems like a whole bunch of different programs. What exactly do I need? – Marco7757 Dec 5 '12 at 20:32
Let me post that as an answer – Journeyman Geek Dec 6 '12 at 0:35

I'm running J. River media center, and the purchased version allows for the splitting and combining of songs. I don't know if the free version offers this mode, nor if it will do so based on your deterministic criteria. Check it out- if nothing else, it's a great Multimedia manager, and provides the most versatile feature-rich tool palette I've found anywhere.

Cuetools is a pretty efficient ripper, which happens to be great for converting a single file into many. You want to run cuetools.exe

Thank you very much! However, when I choose lossy (mp3), it says "Exception: Unsupported audio type [PATHTOFILE].mp3" ... – Marco7757 Dec 18 '12 at 20:49
thats odd. the cue files and the mp3s are in the same folder, right? – Journeyman Geek Dec 18 '12 at 23:44
Yes, they are. I changed the output folder though. But this shouldn't be a problem, am I right? – Marco7757 Dec 19 '12 at 15:58
does the output folder exist? – Journeyman Geek Dec 19 '12 at 23:14
no ... I assumed it would create one ... seriously? EDIT: I just tried, same error! – Marco7757 Dec 20 '12 at 17:19

FWIW, there's a more general MP3 splitting question already answered: Is there an easy way to split mp3 files?
