Software To Break Large Wav Spoken Word File Into Tracks?

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of .wav files that are almost too big to fit onto a single CD (650 mb average) and I want to segment them into "tracks" so that I don't have to fast forward to the spot I left off when I have to eject them from my car's single disk CD player.

 

These files are spoken word, not music.

 

My CD player will NOT play mp3's so what I want is to find software that breaks a .wav into minute long segments that play seamlessly (without a gap or pause between tracks) and still makes the finished data total well under a 700 mb files size.

 

My laptop will NOT overburn CD's.

 

Is there any low cost software that does this easily?

 

Thanks - Dave

Are you looking for a program that only does that, or do you require more features.

More features are okay, of course, but that is the essential feature I'm looking for.

I would suggest CDWAVE. It's a shareware program, fully functional, and does a great job of doing what you want, splitting a track into multiple files so that when written to disc in DAO (Disc At Once) mode, they're seamless. (Technically, it makes the split on a CD frame boundary.) It has an option for splitting at specified intervals too, or you can manually set points very easily.

 

Hope that helps!
